The only way to reset an alarm is to disconnect the battery cables.

there is no such thing as an alarm reset switch.

My suggestion would be to go to autozone, they sell replacement key pads.

Car alarm resetting


Have you tried unlocking the drivers door with the key? This is a common way to re-set a factory alarm system. If you have an aftermarket alarm there is often a small toggle switch mounted under the drivers side steering column.

CAR ALARM ISSUES


It can be any of the car doors not got properly locked or the door is locked but the switch is not sensing the door locked. Open and close each door again properly.

Or else its problem with any of switch wiring getting in contact with alarm wiring causing it to happen.

And last thing alarm connections need to be inspected. It's getting short somewhere in between.


There are few help links with solutions, to troubleshoot these types of problems. I suggest going through these links.

Ford contour alarm sounds and the trunk pops up when I hooked the car. Battery back up and will not start now.


Try using your key in drivers and passengers door to lock and unlock it. That works on some vehicles to reset/disarm, security/anti-theft systems. Otherwise you may have to check owners manual or call Ford dealer service dept for quick instructions.

Factory alarm


Sounds like it has an after market alarm in it? Some times you can unhook the battery and then put the key in the ignition and turn it to the on position and them hook up the battery with the key on and this will clear the alarm. If it is a factory unit you may be able to use the key in the door locks to shut it off or try the same thing as the aftermarket reset.Don't short anything that can fry things. If it is a factory alarm with keyless entry, you should buy a key fob and program it and avoid future problems. You can program this by cycling the key on and off either 6 or 8 times, ( can't remember) and the door locks will lock and unlock on thier own to let you know you are in program mode push the lock button on the remote and it will lock and unlock again to let you know it is programed. Hope this helps....Dan
