Hi i'm an audio installer in calgary,
i would check a couple thing's. first off see if you can find the manual or an online manual were it may have some trouble shooting ideas specific to your model of alarm but my first guess is under the dash you will find a little black box (the alarms brain) and if you look you will find a black ground wire follow this wire to were ever it is attached on the frame as it may be rusted or loose. with out knowing you make or model this is the best advise i can give :) good luck!

2001 mitsubishi eclispse gs wont start how do you bypass the security system

  • 1 Turn the ignition key counter clockwise in the driver's side door to unlock the caricon1.png. This deactivates the alarm long enough for you to gain access to the vehicle. Then, place the key in the ignition and turn the key until it clicks once. This starts the car's battery, but doesn't ignite the engine. The LED light on the dashboard should stop blinking, indicating the alarm is temporarily disabled.
  • 2 Locateicon1.png the box for the alarm under the dashboard on the driver's side of the car. Then, look for the override button on the box. Typically, the small button is either red or black. With the ignition key in the "on" position, press the override button and hold it in until the alarm chirps once. This disables the alarm until you manually reactivate it.
  • 3 To reactivate the alarm, turn the key to the "on" position and press the override button once. The alarm chirps twice, indicating the alarm is active.

  • Hope this helps!

    How to set & cancel theft deterrent system or how to set & cancel security...

    Theft deterrent system (on some models)

    Theft deterrent system is designed to deter vehicle theft. The system flashes the turn signal lights and turns on the interior light or the signal lights only (depending on the model), and sounds security horn and vehicle horn when it detects abnormalities such as follows:

    • Any door or hood is forcibly opened.
    • The batter terminal is disconnected and then reconnected
    • The system control is disconnected and then reconnected.
    • Abnormal impact is detected when the impact sensor function is on.

    The system flashes the turn signal lights and turns the interior light or the signal lights only (depending on the model), and sounds security horn and vehicle horn if someone attempts to damage or break into your car.

    Setting the system

    You can set the system with or without the impact sensor function. For details, see "Canceling the impact sensor" below.

    1. Turn the ignition key to "LOCK" and remove it.
    2. Have all passengers get out of the vehicle
    3. Push the lock (set) switch on the wireless remote control key once. At this time, the turn signal lights flashes once and the security indicator light comes on.

    The system is set after 30 seconds. At this time, the security indicator light start flashing slowly.

    Once the system is set, you cannot start the engine until you cancel the system.

    The system will not be set in the following cases.

    • When any of the door is open; security horn sounds for 1 second, close the door and set the system again.
    • When the hood is open; close the hood securely.

    Canceling the Impact Sensor

    The impact sensor can be cancelled to prevent false alarms from being triggered incase of the following conditions:

    • When parked in the noisy area
    • The vehicle body or glass is subjected to a strong impact from the (such as in highly pressurized car wash).
    • When transporting by a car carrier or ferry.

    To cancel the impact sensor;

    1. Lock the door by pushing the lock (set) switch on the wireless remote control key once, and turn signal light flash once
    2. Then push the lock (set) switch twice within 5 seconds. At this time, the turn signal flash 5 times to indicate the impact sensor function is disable.

    The impact sensor is deactivated as long as the system remained armed.

    Canceling the system

    The system will be cancelled by the following two ways:

    • Turn the ignition key from "LOCK" to "ON" position.
    • Unlock any of the doors by pushing the unlock (cancel) switch

    If the turn signal lights flash 3 times, the system has been alarmed. Check to see if there is any abnormality with your vehicle.

    If any of the doors is not opened within 30 seconds, all doors will be automatically locked and the system will be set.

    When the system is set

    Activating the system; When the system detects abnormalities such as follows, it flashes the turn signal lights and turns on the interior light or the turn lights only (depending on the model) and sounds the security horn and vehicle horn of 30 seconds.

    • Unlocking any door without using wireless control
    • Any door or hood is forcibly opened.
    • The battery terminal is disconnected and then reconnected.
    • The system control assembly is disconnected and then reconnected
    • Abnormal impact is detected when the impact sensor function is on.

    Reactivating the alarm;

    Once set, the system automatically resets the alarm after the alarm stops.

    The alarm will activate again under the same circumstances described in "Activating the system".

    Stopping the Alarm

    The alarm will be stopped by the following two ways;

    • Turn the ignition key from the "LOCK" to "ON" position.
    • Unlock any of the doors by pushing the unlock (cancel) switch.

    The system can be cancelled by these ways at the same time.

    If the battery becomes discharged due to the vehicle being unused, for a long time etc., when the battery is recharged or replaced, the system will activate the alarm. If this happens, immediately unlock any of the doors by pushing the unlock (cancel) switch, and the alarm will stop.

    Testing the system

    1. Set the system
    2. Insert a wireless remote control key into the key hole on the driver's door handle, and unlock the door.
    3. Open the door, and an alarm will sound.
    4. Stop the alarm by pushing the unlock (cancel) switch.
    5. Repeat this operation for the front passenger's door.

    Good luck.

    How can I reset my Factory Alarm on my Jeep it wont run

    Alarm Module Reset Procedure
    NOTE: This information applies to a Vehicle Theft Security System (VTSS) that was armed when the battery was disconnected and reconnected.
    When the armed VTSS senses that the battery has been disconnected and reconnected, it enters its power-up mode. In the power-up mode the alarm system remains armed following a battery failure or disconnect. If the VTSS was armed prior to a battery disconnect or failure, the system will have to be actively or passively disarmed following a battery reconnection.
    The power-up mode will also apply if the battery goes dead while the system is armed and battery jump-starting is attempted. The engine no-run feature will prevent the engine from starting until the alarm system has been actively or passively disarmed.
    Passive disarming of the Vehicle Theft Security System (VTSS) occurs when the vehicle is unlocked using the key to unlock either front door or the lift gate. 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, lights flashing, and the engine no-run feature), either disarming method will deactivate the alarm.
    Depressing the Panic button (if equipped) on the RKE transmitter will also disarm the VTSS, but the horn will sound and the lights will flash for about three minutes as part of the Panic feature. The horn and lights can be stopped by pressing any of the RKE transmitter's buttons or driving the vehicle above 15 mph.
