Not at all I have had it on my bike for over a year already and it has caused no interfereance. My control unit is behind the battery on the fender toward the left hand side if you are sitting on the bike.My drivers backrest bracket caused a little grief but just shimmed it up with a couple small washers

My 1994 Isuzu trooper won't start not even the

Have you tried resetting the alarm by locking and unlocking the drivers side door?If you do this a couple of times in some cars it will restet the factory security system and allow the key to work again.
Some ignition keys have a resistor built into them and the cars computer is programmed to that resistance. The security system needs to verify the resistance for the key before it will let the car start. What I have read recently about this subject basically states that if you are having problems with a car not starting, won't turn over, no clicking but the car still has power....and everything seems fine in the car....battery, starter, alternator, etc. but the security light comes on in the car and the car eventually does start usually 5 minutes or so later then it is the cars security system that is causing the problem. It doesn't recognize the resistance of the key. It sounds like the security system needs to be replaced or bypassed. A friend of mine has a '94 olds royale 88 that started having this problem a few months ago. The car isn't fixed yet but that is just because I just found this information on the security systems on the internet a few days ago. It looks like it is a somewhat common problem with some of the cars that GM made when they first started installing the Passkey I, II and III systems into their vehicles. I hope this helps and if someone else has more information on this subject I would be interested in hearing about it.
And you should check the ignition key switch on the steering colum it will have one of the two wires broken.This sets off the security system which kills the ignition and the fuel pump system.When replacing the key switch make sure you buy one from the dealer most aftermarket switchs are poor quality and if go through the trouble of taking the steering wheel off and parts of the colum do the job right the first time.After you put the new key switch in remember to connect the two wires in the correct electrical terminal.Turn the key to the on position and wait about 10-20 minutes for your computer to recongnize the new switch and program it into it's memory and your car should start right up.

There appears to be some major RF interference; possibly from transmission towers related to fire/police. Maybe a new tower was installed or they were recently amplified. Not sure what you could do about that besides installing new units with extended range.

My bike will not start, securty system activated, I'am not able to bypass the problem, someone said that there is a sequence of buttons you have to press in order to deactivate security system?

Do you have the alarm installation manual, check in there if you have to get a sequence else disconnect the power for 15 minutes to make immobiliser released and re-install

Unplug the power commander first. It could be bad. They occasionally are defective. If it cures up the problem, then contact who you pruchased it from. if it doesn't make sure the mapping is actually for you application. it could be running on the rich side and it's taking a little while to finally load up.

If i get a new cd player/radio for my jetta work if in safe mode?

If you buy another factory radio it'll need the unlock code to work with your factory alarm system. But if you go with an after market radio it'll work just fine, your alarm will just think there's no radio installed.
