Just had a car security alarm fitted by auto electrician i have a question , it has a dummy reset switch with it , auto guy was;nt sure about my question, i know , he should , anyway what does it do ? im...

I am pretty sure ours was to reset the alarm. I can't really remember though, but you should be able to get the info you need from the manufacturer. You could also check around with other auto electricians, ask if they are familiar with the brand and type that you have.

Hi, If your alarm is going off while you are reading this. And you have your wireless remote control in your hand. If my memory serves me correctly, there should be a narrow or skinny button in the remote. It may be red colored Push that button. It may shut the thing off. If that doesn't work push the rest of the buttons BUT DON'T PRESS THE PANIC BUTTON.
Give it a try.
Hope it helps
Good Luck,

I have a 2005 reg toyota verso D4D every time I try using the central locking key it does not work when I try to use the mannual key the alarm goes off I can drive the car but cannot get the alarm to go...


Thanks for using FixYa.

Sounds like you have an Alarm remote battery problem. You need to change the remote's battery. The remote's battery gets a little bit of charge whenever you leave it for quite some time. A trip to your mechanic might have been long enough to give your remote's battery a little bit of charge that's probably why it works whenever you get to your mechanic's place. But after that, you've used the little bit of charge that the battery has then It will not work anymore after you get home. Try leaving the remote unused for at least an hour or two then try to use it. Im sure it will work for a bit. Just get the remote's battery changed.

I hope this helps. Have a nice day.

Honda Odyssey 2004 no alarms

There is most likely a reset button under the dash somewhere. You can try pressing and holding that button down while pressing the lock button on the remote. If this does not work simply have the dealer reset it for you.

Lost original car alarm control... need to reset a new one...

programing a Nissan remote , is hidden secret by Nissan Dealers. As a Nissan Technician i will share it.

Just get in your vech , close all doors. Using your power lock switch , lock all doors. After doors are locked take your Ignition Key and insert it and remove it from ignition switch in a slow fashion , but consitant pace. (97 and earlyer are fast) When you see the hazzard lights flash, put key in ignition switch and turn to the On postion .. Do NOT CRANK or you will have to Start over .. After in the On postion .. Hit the Lock button on remote... Hazzard lights should flash..( have to reprogram all remotes when adding a new one , if you don't your old remotes will not work ) If your doing just the one , turn igntion switch off and unlock door and get out and try it. If you are doing more than one. While still in Vech with Key on . After you hit the Lock button on Remote and hazzard light flashed .. with key still on .. use master lock switch unlock doors and relock and then hit Second Remote, Lights should flash again , repeat if adding a 3rd remote.. after done just turn key off and unlock door and get out and try.

Replace my control remote for my ignition started & alarm system

there should be a button some where that you can push while the key is in the on position and it will stop the alarm for that ignition cycle. Then i reccomend taking the alarm out or take it to a reputable electronics shop and they can tell you what manufacture and model is.

2000 Toyota Corolla wont start Changed 02 sensor disconnected bat

I had the same problem, i had to remove the whole alarm system to get my car to start, when you unattatch the battery cables, the alarm notices the battery drain and sets the alarm off, i have no idea how much the dealership would charge for a new remote, but im sure its pricey, i would recommend just removing the alarm system, temporarily, until you can get a new remote. Good luck and god bless

Program remote control for mazda mpv 2002

Courtesy of:

Try this, it works on several 2002 models:

Step 1: Open drivers door and leave open.

Step 2: Lock and unlock the drivers door using the power door lock switch on the door.

Step 3: Insert key into the ignition.

Step 4: Turn key to on position and return to off position. (IMPORTANT - use ON position NOT ACC position). Do this 3 times within 10 seconds. Leave key in the ignition.

Step 5: Open and close the drivers door 3 times. (Door should be left open after this step).

Step 6: ECU should respond by locking and unlocking the doors.

Step 7: Press any button on remote #1. ECU responds by locking and unlocking the car doors.

Step 8: Press any button on remote #2 (etc.) Each time the ECU will respond by locking & unlocking the doors.

Step 9: Remove the key from the ignition and the ECU will respond a final time with a series of door locks and unlocks. You're done
