The batterie died on I needed to replace it. Now I think the alarm kill switch was activated. The problem is that I know it is after market but don't know what brand it is. I also don't have the keyless remote control. Help

Search through the area in the footwell of the drivers side. There will be a very small button. This is a valet/progaming button that is on all aftermarkets. It may be by itself, it may be connected to the brain unit, or it could even be attached to the alarm antenna, which is usually on the windshield. You need to press this button when turning on the car some alarms you need to hold the button down others you just need to press it. This will shut off the alarm until it is reactivated with the key fob.

Battery went dead,clifford alarm locked the engine


Assuming that all is well with the vehicle's electrical system (fuses, etc...), the following should work, as Viper/Clifford uses the "fail safe" method of starter disable, and it only works to lock out the starter when the alarm is functioning properly and in the armed state.

That system has a "starter kill" system. When the alarm is actived, the starter kill is engages, and won't let the starter get voltage from the ignition switch. First thing I'd try is connecting the car's battery while the ignition key is turned to the "on/run" position. Cycle the alarm to arm, then disarm, so that the LED is not blinking. It also may require using the manual override button/switch (with the key on) to reset the alarm. Should start after that.

If all else fails, reconnecting the starter wires back together (they are spliced and running through the alarm via a SPDT relay.

How old is the alarm? If you have glass breakage detection or motion sensors installed one of these could be faulty. If the alarm is more than a year old and it's an after market alarm it is possible the alarm is faulty and needs to be replaced. There is a fuse in the power supply line, usually running along the firewall between the power point and the alarm. Remove this fuse and the alarm should be deactivated but the ignition kill switch will not be active so you can use the vehicle and the siren will stop going off.

Absolutely yes. There are three types of car alarms:
1. Standard/Active - where your alarm is in effective operation at time of theft.
2. Passive - whereby you have an alarm installed on your car, which at time of theft is not in effective operation
3. Immobiliser - whereby the key of your car must be used to start the ignition, otherwise it becomes immobilised

you can be sure that yours car alarm system is one of the above.
