Question about Mitsubishi Montero Sport

1 Answer

The factory installed alarm on my 2002 Montero Sport is malfunctioning. It at times turns itself on and at other times will not come on when I try to set it. The dealer told me it cannot be disabled and must be repaired at considerable expense. I would prefer to disable it if possible, as i'm concerned it will leave me stranded. Can anyone help?

    The alarm interrupts the ignition and will not allow the car to start. Also, I am not sure where to find the fuse

  • luckydog07 Aug 12, 2008

    This problem appears to be related to times of high or extremely hot weather. That is when the alarm has set itself.

    I cannot read the solution. Are there more coming?

    To start with, you can identify which after market

    system you have by using the FCC. ID.# found

    on the back of each remote. Try a site

    like or

    to track down the one you have in your hand.

    Now let's put the system into overide mode.

    As far as the valet/overide button, it's a hidden

    device-switch, a little spring loaded micro button,

    red or black possibly and is probably down under

    the dash area, near your knee/leg. In some

    remote start/alarm combos, the antenna on the window

    glass will also have an override/valet button.

    Older sytems will have a flip type toggle switch.

    When you locate the button or switch,

    turn on the ignition key, press and hold

    in the button until the alarm chirps 1 time

    (for toggle types, key on, flip switch in the

    opposite direction, then key off)

    This should over ride the system, and only the

    keyless entry part, if installed, would still be


    You would get a single chirp to confirm from the siren.

    The LED (light emiting diode) light in the dash

    should also go on solid. This is valet/overide/reset.

    This should correct any issues like starter disable,

    or anti-hijack. Your keyless entry, if installed,

    will still be operable. The have it inspected for the

    falsing issues you are experience at a local shop.

    You would repeat the same steps to toggle

    back into user mode.

    That should do it for 90% of the after market alarms

    out there.

    If however, yours is a "FACTORY" or, OEM

    (original Equipment Manufacturer) "alarm/security" system,

    then the disabling procedure info for any given

    specific vehicle is now deamed to be too sensitive to

    publish here (as suggested by ALLEXPERTS administration.!).

    So, to comply, as of March,22 08, this service is no longer

    part of the volunteer information I can offer for free here at . Specific OEM/FACTORY alarm disarm/disabling

    info is now available ONLY at the WIREWERX.

    My installation wiring charts provide the proper wire colors,

    polarities, and locations to install a keyless entry,

    remote start or, car alarm system into any given vehicle,

    or if just trying to disarm/disable your factory/OEM system,

    there is a link there to get a tutourial on how to do it yourself

    for only $2.99.

    I hope you can appreciate the legal reasons behind not

    providing this info any longer to just anyone who asks

    for general consumption. By doing it this way, I'll

    get a record of payment and a name/email address as

    a stop gap to help prevent any unauthorized disabling of

    your system or anyone elses, by a would be car thief!

    Please go to the WIREWERX so I can get you the

    info you require to fix your situation.

    Try also connecting jumper cables to battery, and while the alarm is sounding, insert the
    key in the door and manually unlock the vehicle. The alarm will go off.

I have a 2000 Montero Sport and my factory alarm keeps going off for no reason about 5 minutes after you get out of the car... Could it be a low battery or is it a malfunction with the alarm system?

You can tell iff the battery is low by useing ur Key to look it.This will only activate the central looking and imobilizer.If you use your fob and the indicator lights on your car dont flash then your battery needs to be changed.

Hi Barikinas,
I would suggest you check the knock sensor and the egr operation as the knock sensor should send information to the computer to correct the ignition timing and the egr malfunction will prevent the temperature of the combustion chamber to lower thus producing more oxides and the temperature goes higher.
