What year and model? is one aftermark alarm or the factory alarm?

    According with the Cadillac manual...

    When the theft system activates, the horn will sound and the lamps will flash for about 30 seconds when the door or trunk is opened without the key or RKE system.

    Remember, the theft-deterrent system won't arm if you lock the doors witha key or use the manual door lock. It activates only if you use a power door lock switch with the door open other RKE system.

    To avoid activating the alarmb y accident:
    * The vehicle should be locked with the door key or the manual door lock switch after the doors are closed if you don't want to arm the theft-deterrent system.
    * Always unlock a door with a key or use the RKE system. (Pressing the unlock button on the RKE transmitter disables the theft-deterrent system.)
    Unlocking a door any other way will activate the alarm when a door or the trunk is opened.

    If you activate the alarm by accident, unlock the driver's door with your keyY. ou can also turn offt he alarm by using the unlock button of the RKE system, or by starting the car with a valid key.

    Changes or modifications made to this system by other than an authorized service facility could void authorization to use the theft system.

    Testing the Alarm
    1. From inside the vehicle, roll down the window, then get out of the vehicle, keeping the door open.
    2. From outside of the vehicle, with the door open, lock the vehicle using the power door lock or the RKE system and close the door. Wait 30 seconds until the SECURITY lamp goes off.
    3. Reach in and unlock the door using the manual lock and open the door. The horn will sound and the hazard lights will flash.

    If the alarm does not sound whietn s hould, check tos ee if the horn works. The horn fuse may be blown. To replace the fuse, see "Fuses and Circuit Breakers" in the Index. If the fuse does not need to be replaced, you may need to have your vehicle serviced.

    To reduce the possibility of theft, alwayas rm the optional theft-deterrent system when leaving your vehicle.

    Hope helps.

What is the valet button located inside of glove compartment used for


It is used for programing the alarm, it is used to disarm the alarm without the remote, [in case remote is damaged] and it is used to put alarm system into valet mode, [service mode] valet mode is only really needed if the alarm has been programed for passive arming, [alarm arms itself].

Your main use for the valet switch, [if programed for active arming instead of passive arming] is to have a way to disarm the alarm if the remote does not work.

The alarm system has activated and we cannot disarm the system via the Remote Key Fob or by key at the doors or hatchback. Tried disconnecting battery same problem. When the doors open the system...


Hi Edward:
In dashboard, your THEFT warning light is blinking? If the answer is yes, your antotheft system is activated and will need restart and resynchonized. This occurs when battery is disconneting or other un-authorized key is used.

Vehicles equipped with Vehicle Theft Security System (VTSS) are protected from vehicle theft andunauthorized entry. VTSS system monitors vehicle doors, hood, liftgate and ignition. If an attempt is made toenter or operate vehicle without proper disarming of system, vehicle horn will sound, headlights, taillights andparking lights will flash, and engine will be prevented from running.

VTSS system arms when ignition is off, vehicle is exited, door is locked using power door locks and door isclosed. Alternatively a remote keyless entry transmitter can be used to arm system. A security light on panelwill flash for 15 seconds to indicate system is arming. At the end of 15 seconds, if no door, hood or tailgate isopened, system is armed.

If alarm is triggered, horn will sound for 3 minutes, and lights will flash for an additional 15 minutes. If hornsounds 3 times when either front door is unlocked, vehicle has been tampered with (tamper alert). If doors arelocked manually or with key, system will not arm (manual override). If an unauthorized entry does occur, VTSSsystem signals Powertrain Control Module (PCM) to prevent vehicle from being driven. PCM reduces injectorpulse width to zero, causing a start and stall condition.

System can be disarmed with the keyless entry transmitter, or by using key to enter vehicle. In both instances, if alarm was activated, vehicle alarm will be terminated. If battery is disconnected and reconnected, alarm will beactivated and it will be necessary to disarm system as indicated.

Please, send us some email account to send you this procedure in PDF format file.

How to take automate car alarm off silent mode


{: ) When armed, the content theft deterrent (CTD) system is designed to deter vehicle content theft by pulsing the horns and exterior lamps for approximately 30 seconds when an unauthorized vehicle entry is detected.

An unauthorized entry can be any of the following with the CTD system armed:
• When any door is opened without first being unlocked using the keyless entry transmitter • After a battery reconnect, if the battery was disconnected with the CTD system armed
Disarming an Armed System/Silencing an Alarm
If system arming has been requested by the power door lock switch or the keyless entry transmitter, it must be disarmed.
Important: Using the power door unlock switch or manually unlocking the doors does not disable the content theft deterrent (CTD) arm mode. Also, disconnecting the battery or pulling fuses does not disable the arm mode, since the BCM stores the CTD mode status in memory.
• To disarm the CTD system in standby mode, perform one of the following: - Press the UNLOCK button on the keyless entry transmitter. - Insert a valid key into the ignition and switch to the ON position. • To disarm the CTD system in the armed mode (non-event) or when activated (during an alarm event): - Press the UNLOCK button on the keyless entry transmitter. - Insert a valid key into the ignition and switch to the ON position Locking the Vehicle Without Arming the CTD System Locking the vehicle may be accomplished without arming the content theft deterrent (CTD) system. Use of the manual door locks or using the key to lock the doors will lock the vehicle, but will not arm the CTD system.

Car won't start.Theft light blinks,clicking sound under hood and thumping like horn wants to go off.Seems like it's stuck in anti theft mode


anti theft light should blink every few seconds.

try disconnecting the battery for 15 minutes.

Anti-Theft-Perimeter The perimeter anti-theft system consists of the following components:
  • anti-theft indicator (THEFT)
  • remote anti-theft personality (RAP) module
  • hood switch
  • keyless entry remote transmitter
  • deck lid ajar switch
NOTE: The remote entry features will not function when the ignition switch is in the RUN or ACC position.
Up to four keyless entry remote transmitters (15K601) can be programmed at one time.
The keyless entry remote transmitters :
  • Are programmable.
  • Must be set at the same time.
  • House four buttons.
  • House three buttons (Mexico Anti-Theft System only).
Programming
Refer to Section 501-14B.
Inputs and Outputs
The remote anti-theft personality (RAP) module receives input from the following components for anti-theft operation:
  • Hood switch.
  • Deck lid ajar switch.
  • Keyless entry remote transmitter.
  • Power door lock switches (LH and RH).
  • Door courtesy input.
The RAP module distributes output to the following for the anti-theft system:
  • Power door unlock relay.
  • Power door lock relay.
  • Liftgate unlock relay (Wagon)
  • Park lamps relay.
  • HORN relay.
  • Dome lamp.
  • THEFT indicator.
  • Deck lid release.
Arming
The anti-theft system can be armed if:
  • The ignition switch is in the OFF position.
  • The panic alarm is off.
  • All doors are closed.
NOTE: If a door is open, the anti-theft system is prearmed and waiting for all the doors to be closed. The THEFT indicator will remain illuminated for up to 30 minutes waiting for all the doors to be closed. If a door remains open after 30 minutes, the THEFT indicator will turn off and the system will return to a disarmed state. After all doors are closed and the 30 second prearm (continuous THEFT indicator illumination) is complete, the system is armed.
NOTE: If the theft LED does not flash after 30 seconds, check the LED FLASH PID to see if the feature is enabled.
The anti-theft system will be armed when the lock button on the keyless entry remote transmitter is pressed, all doors are closed and 30 seconds have elapsed.
When the system is armed, the THEFT indicator will flash quickly until the system is triggered or disarmed.
Disarming
NOTE: Using a key in a door lock cylinder to unlock is not a valid method of disarming the anti-theft system.
Untriggered System
NOTE: If the driver arms the system and remains in the vehicle, an untriggered system can be disarmed by turning the ignition switch to the ON position.
An untriggered alarm system can be disarmed by pressing the unlock button on the keyless entry remote transmitter.
Triggered System
NOTE: If the hood or trunk are open when the system is armed, it must be closed and opened again before it can trigger an alarm.
An armed anti-theft system can be triggered by the following conditions:
The deck lid door, liftgate, hood or any door is opened using a key, inside door handle, hood release, etc.
  • The keyless entry remote transmitter can activate a panic alarm which is similar to the anti-theft alarm, but does not cause the THEFT indicator to flash.
A triggered alarm system can be disarmed by:
  • Pressing the unlock or panic button on the keyless entry remote transmitter.
  • Turning the ignition switch to the ON position.
Alarm State When Battery Power Is Cycled
When the RAP module is supplied power the first time at the vehicle assembly plant, the system will be in the disarmed state. The RAP module will remember whether it is armed, disarmed or triggered in its non-volatile memory. When the battery positive cable is removed and then reconnected, the system will return to the state it was in just before the battery was disconnected. If the system is in any prearm state, then the system will return to a disarmed state when the battery is disconnected and then reconnected.

How do i reset my alarm on a 97 jeep Grand


Here is excerpt from the 1998 Jeep Grand Cherokee Service Manual ... i know you posted under 1997 JGC but this information may be helpful ... by "reset alarm" i believe you meant disarming the alarm?

Arming
Passive arming of the Vehicle Theft Security System (VTSS) occurs when the vehicle is exited with the key removed from the ignition switch, the headlamps are turned off, and the doors are locked using power lock switch. The power lock switch will not function if the key is in the ignition switch or the headlamps are on with the driver’s door open. The VTSS will not arm if either front door or the liftgate are locked using the key in the lock cylinder.
Active arming of the VTSS occurs when the Remote Keyless Entry (RKE) transmitter is used to lock the vehicle, even if the doors and/or the liftgate are open when the RKE transmitter Lock button is depressed. However, the VTSS arming will not be complete until all the doors and the liftgate are closed.
Following successful passive or active VTSS arming, the VTSS set lamp on the top of the instrument panel will flash rapidly for about 15 seconds after the illuminated entry system times out. This indicates that the VTSS arming is in progress. If the light stays on steadily during the arming, it indicates that the hood switch is closed (the hood is open). The VTSS will still arm if the hood is open, but the engine compartment will not be protected. Once the 15 second arming function is complete, the set lamp will flash at a slower rate to indicate that the VTSS is armed. Disarming Passive disarming of the Vehicle Theft Security Sytem (VTSS) occurs when the vehicle is unlocked using the key to unlock either front door or the liftgate. Active disarming of the VTSS occurs when the vehicle is unlocked by depressing the Unlock button of the Remote Keyless Entry (RKE) transmitter. Once the alarm has been activated (horn sounding, exterior lights flashing, and the the engine no-run feature), either disarming method will also deactivate the alarm. Depressing the Panic button on the RKE transmitter will also disarm the VTSS, but the horm will sound and teh exterior lamps will flash for about three minutes as a part of the Panic feature function. ..." And as an additional note, if you have the courtesy interior lights set at 30 seconds like i do, you have to wait until lights go out (with alarm still sounding) before you can disarm the alarm via passive disarm method... what a pain when you don't have the actual RKE handy... Good Luck!

1995 Nissan Maxima alarm system


Hey, I bought my 1995 Nissan Maxima GLE brand new back in July 1994 with factory installed alarm, it just doen't make any sound when you arm or disarm it with remote. The only way you can tell whether it is armed or disarmed is from the lever position of your doors and the blinking red light under the dash. Only the newer versions of Nissan/Infiniti's has the "Audio/Silent" mode button on the remote which allows you to activate/deactivate you car alarm with an audiable sound or no sound at all. No worry, there is nothing wrong with your remote or car alarm.
