The car won't start because the Clifford alarm has a starter interrupt wire where the start wire runs through the alarm system module/relay. The unit then must still be active for the car not to start. If pressing the disarm/unlock button on your Clifford key FOB does not turn the system off, you will after to do it manually. You will need to locate the manual override button installed somewhere in the car that is connected to the alarm system. Turn the ignition switch to "on" or "run" and within 10 seconds press the manual override switch. That will turn the alarm system off and allow the car to be driven normally. I would then take the vehicle to an authorized Clifford or other DEI (Viper) install shop and have them diagnose your apparent problem.
Yes the best way is disarm the alarm and put in a Valet Mode To activate the Valet Mode do the following:
There is a push button or toggle switch to disable the alarm (to engage the valet mode). Without knowing where this switch is you won't be able to disconnect the alarm.
1. Put the key in the ignition and turn it to the "on" position. 2. Flip the toggle or hold the push button for at least 5 seconds. 3. The LED. light will stay solid on. 4. Turn the ignition off 5. Release the push button. If you have a toggle leave it alone in step 2
dark green with purple is your disarm wire, it's behind the drivers kick panel, if you ground this wire it will disarm the factory alarm for good, but it almost sounds like you have a starter kill relay on the red with light blue starter wire under your dash, you can remove the relay on this wire if you have one and jump pin 30 to pin 87 with a wire
most likely make sure you have good connections when you reconnected it and check out your manual for the alarm(maybe in owners manual if alarm is stock) some alarms could disable your car and prevent it from starting and you will need to reset it somehow. maybe if it was disconnected long enough it would reset. But most likely the connections are bad from taking it apart sand them down tighten them up and maybe give them a shot of wd40 for good measure(it is supposed to absorb moisture).
Put the car in valet mode. Disconnect the NEGATIVE battery terminal. Put the keys in the ignition and turn it as far forward as you can (as though trying to start it) and let it spring back. Reconnect the negative terminal. This should reset the alarm to valet mode. Programming varies from brand to brand. Contact an alarm dealer and they can help reprogram the remote(s).
