I had the same problem with my vs1100xr. The remotes for these (and other) unidens have a rolling code. Seems to me that either the remote runs out of new codes and cycles back to the beginning, or the alarm base unit somehow loses track of the codes. Either way, the alarm base unit stops accepting the codes of your remote, and so needs to be purged of its code tracking memory - reset, if you like. This is essentially the procedure for training the alarm base unit to recognise new remote (and forgetting old remotes).
This procedure is:-
1) Disarm alarm, or if in valet mode, take it out of valet mode (push valet button 3 times)
2) Turn the ignition on and off 2 times within 15 seconds.
3) Put the alarm into valet mode (push valet button 3 times) within 15 seconds of completing step 2. Alarm should beep, and remote training has started.
4) Within 15 seconds of completing step 3, push the button (#1) of the first remote you wish to use for the alarm. Alarm should beep, indicating acceptance of remote. Repeat for other remotes you wish to use - up to 4 in total. (Once the first remote has been accepted, you have all the time in the world to make the alarm learn other remotes)
5) Turn ignition on and off to end remote learning mode. Alarm should beep 2 times. New remotes have now been learned and previous remotes forgotten.

Some of these details may vary from country to country - who knows. If this doesn't work, I suggest that you contact Uniden in your country to obtain the procedure. Took me a few tries to get the timing right, what with the valet button hard to get at and having only 15 seconds between steps.

Just adding to gem001's perfect answer above there are a few little steps that you must ensure you are doing otherwise nothing works.

FIRSTLY. Locate your valet alarm button. This is usually somewhere underneath the fuse box near to where the bonnet release is. To acess mine I had to remove the plastic covering that hides all the ignition wires. You will likely see the alarms "brain" or control with a whole bunch of wires. Ignore these. To the right of this up against the cars panelling will be a small push button. It will be difficult to locate but once you spot it, you will think its obvious. Mine is sort of about shin height.

SECONDLY. now you have the valet button begin gem001's instructions. HOWEVER step number 1. ensure the keys are in the ignition and the car is turned to ON before pressing the valet button 3 times.

If the ignition is not on the on position you cannot enter or exit valet mode.

Alternatively if you are stuck somewhere and it is embarrassing that you have just been standing next to an car with its alarm going off for 30 minutes. Enter valet mode (ignition on, press button 3 times within 15 seconds ), and then turn your car on and drive it home. Your alarm is effectively off until you take it out of valet mode. Use your key to lock the vehicle etc until you have time to retrain your remote alarm sensor as detailed above.

Good luck!

Just bought a car with this stereo. Was working fine and then I accidentally was messing around trying to figure things out and put it in demo mode. Now it's stuck!! Can someone please help?!?!


With the stereo on, hold the large round button in to get to setting menu. When it gets to that, I believe clock adjust comes up first, just turn the knob to get to demo mode and then push the button in. Turn the knob to switch demo off and then push it again. That should do it.

So how do wire this set set up to a bridged amp any help would be appreciated


assuming that is a dvc dual 4 ohm speaker, and you have a 2 ohm bridged amp, you run a positive from each side of the speaker into the bridged positive of the power amp, and run a negative from each side of the speaker into the negative bridged terminal of the amp. if, indeed, you have 2 4 ohm voice coils, running them bridged in parallel wiring will bring the load to 2 ohms. if you have 4 voice coils, of 4 ohms apiece, you could run all 4 parallel into the amp, but that would bring the load down to 1 ohm, and you would have to make sure you8r amp can support 1 ohm operation.

Pass code to Kenwood kvt 717 without remote


Without a remote control, you can't. Just buy an original or a suitable universal remote control that have set-up code/s for your device, in its code list. If you wish to get more details visit the sites linked here.

I have a boss 400w riot 2-4 channels,how do i connect the high level wires? Because stereo doesn't have rca's


to use the high level leads, you have to isolate the wires going to each speaker (if using 4 channel mode) or isolate the wires going just to the rear if you are using 2 channel mode. you have to strip a small piece of the insulation off each speaker wire, and run it into the amps high level input harness. if you dont have the high level input harness, you can get a 2 channel high level to rca adapter for around $20. basically, you are tapping into the signal to the stock speakers to feed music to the amp. make sure you get all your positives and negatives correct. brighter wires are usually positive; however you may be faced with sa speaker which uses a grey wire, and another grey wire- the second with a black line. you will have to, again, turn to internet research to determine which is positive and negative, if the colors are not obvious.

Lightning audio b150.2 as soon as +12 is hooked up blows 25 amp fuse and the c2 1000uf/35v capacitors blow???????


Disconnect all speaker connections and rca cables. Leave power, ground and remote wires intact. Try turning on again. If you still have a protection light your amp is faulty. Hopefully you have warranty. Double check all connections .A thumbs up would be greatly appreciated if this answer is helpful to you.
