Some of those cars did not have that option on them. You must frist open the drivers door. then press the lock button on the main switch oin the door. Then close the door and slowly insert the key 6 times within 10 seconds but do not go to fast and when the flashers blink then turn the key to the ACC potion and press one of the buttons on the remote.

Avital is one brand of remote starter that features easy-to-use keyless remotes. These remotes can be programmed wirelessly to your engine and then added to your keychain. Once programmed, you will be able to use the remote from as far as a couple hundred feet away in your house, the street or a parking lot. If your remote is not working, you can troubleshoot the remote and get it resynced in seconds.

    Crimestopper SP501 car alarm/remote starter will not respond. The 2 way one doesn't work, the sidekick does.

    You need to program your crimestopper sp-501 key fobs, you need to program both the 2-way and the 1-way key fobs, during the same key fob program session. First find your valet button/switch, when you have found it, turn your ignition on and press the valet button four times, if you have a toggle type switch for a valet switch, toggle it up and down four times, when its in remote key fob program mode, it will honk your horn 4-times followed by 4-parking light flashes. Once your have done this press the lock button on the 2-way key fob, horn will honk and the 2-way will sing a little song to confirm programed, then press the lock button on the 1-way key fob the horn honk will be your confirm programed. turn ignition off this will exit you from program mode. then shut all doors and test key fobs for operation functions....hope this helps you out

    I have a 2000 dodge intrepid. The alarm never worked on it. We bought it used and all of a sudden when we go to unlock the door it turns on. Now the car won't start. I've looked online for answers and...

    The 2000 Dodge Intrepid is equipped with an alarm system that is triggered when unauthorized entry is attempted. In some situations, such as having the Intrepid valet parked or when it is being serviced by a mechanic, the alarm system needs to be disarmed so it doesn't go off. Disarming the alarm will prevent it from being activated until it is armed again.
    Difficulty: Moderate Instructions

    1. 1 Insert the key into the ignition.
    2. 2 Turn the ignition switch to "ON." Do not start the engine.
    3. 3 Press and hold the valet/override button within five seconds of turning the ignition on. The valet button is located beneath the steering column.
    4. 4 Release the valet/override button after the security indicator light turns off.
    5. 5 Turn the ignition switch off.

    have to do it in this order

    I have a '99 Deville. Had the same problem. In the glove box, there are two toggles for Traction Control and Valet. Toggle the Valet one and try the remote on your key or the buttons in your dash.
    For mine, someone had engaged the Valet to "ON" and locked out the remote trunk and fuel door.
