just put your own 12 volt relay in an run it over to the fuse panel .
its likely a bad relay in the fuse box under hood, easy to find since they mark that stuff.

DEI viper alarm acting up? cant get alarm to work, Read on

(This guide may provide help on temporarily disabling a alarm until a repair can be made)
If your alarm goes off constantly or does not armed by itself:

Does the alarm arm and disarm properly? If it does proceed, if it doesn't, then have it checked by your installer.

1. Check and make sure your dome light is not staying on. If it is make sure all doors are closed and/or the dome
light switch is not turned on.
2. Check your sensor. Make sure they are not too sensitive. They can cause false alarm and also cause the system
not to arm by itself.
3. The alarm current sensing might be detecting voltage drop from the battery of the car or current draw from an
equipment (maybe left on).
If your car won't start check the following:

1. Does the alarm arm and disarm properly. If it does chances are is not the alarm.
2. When you try to start the car the alarm goes off.. It could be your battery.
3. Try to start no sound, nothing lights up, alarm doesn't work. It could be a loose battery terminal or dead battery.
4. Everything lights up, alarm works fine, but car still won't start. I could be a bad starter, starter disable in the alarm
or check and make sure the car is in "PARK" or press the clutch all the way down to the floor.
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
To de-activate the Valet Mode do the following:

There is a push button or toggle switch to enable the alarm (to disengage the valet mode). Without knowing where this switch is you won't be able to reconnect 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 1 seconds no more than 2 seconds on most DEI products,
keep it pressed in.
3. Turn the ignition off.
4. The LED. light will be off.
5. Release the push button. If you have a toggle leave it alone as described in step 2.

Why does my radio fuse keep popping in my 1992 bmw 735i?

Do you have the correct size fuse as listed in the manual or on the fuse cover? If so do you have an after market alarm system? Many times the after market installers will use a wire that they know is hot. often an always on radio memory wire? If you bought the car new and did not install an alarm or change out the radio out then you may need to bring it into a shop that traces wires. if you bought it used and you have the correct size fuse there is no telling. Caution do not in cress the size of the fuse beyond the recommended size or you could have a fire.

2002 jeep grand cherokee with valet remote start. when remote start is activated jeep starts then shuts off immediatly

Apart from the inginition wires ( you must check if there are 12 volts), the alarm needs to read the tach reading properly from the car to stay running. If the tach rate is not learned by the system, it will cut out almost immediately. You need to ensure that this tach wire is connected to the tach under the hood. When this has been connected, you need to ensure that the alarm learns the rate. This can be done automatically on some models or manually on others. Ensure that the appropariate wire is connected to your tach wire; it should work properly after that

If you're talking about the alarm, it's in the programming. There are 4 modes, depending on your model.
Mode 2 has delayed illumination, auto door lock, last door close/lockout detterent
Mode 3 has all those plus remote driver's door unock
Mode 4 adds the remote lock/unlock confirmation, content theft, content theft arming/disarming

Enter progam mode by
1. remove the BCM PRGRM fuse from the instrument panel fuse block.
2. Close the driver's door.
3. Turn the ignition key towards you, to ACC
4. Count the number of chimes you hear. You will hear two to four chimes depending on the features your vehicle is equipped with.

You are now in program mode...
With the content theft-deterrent system, if anyone damages or enters your vehicle whie the system is armed, the horn will shound and your parking lamps will flash for two minutes. The content theft shock sensor detects if anyone damages your vehicle. The shock sensors sensitivity can be adjusted by your dealer if more or less sensitivity is desired.

Mode 1: damage detection w/ reduced sensitivity
Mode 2: damage detection off (alarm only sounds when door is opened)
mode 3: feature off
mode 4: damage detection with Normal sensitivity

To change modes, enter the program mode, turn the parking lamps on and off, count the number of chimes you hear, that is which mode your vehicle is in. you can change the mode by turning the parking lamps on and then off again. Repeart turning lamps on/off untill you hear the numer of chimes you want.

The mode is now set, you can either exit, or program another feature.

To exit, turn thekey from acc to off and put the BCM PRGRM fuse back.

I bought an Audi A3 secondhand with audi chorus Blaupunkt-WERKE GMBH 7648 245 380 SERIEL NO AUZ1Z2X678588 ,the radio is on a safe mode please help me with the code and the method to enter the code

You must retrieve the code that comes with the Audi's radio unit. To change to safe mode:
  1. Turn on radio. The radio display shows "SAFE".
  2. Press the P.Scan and RBDS buttons simultaneously and hold until "1000" shows on the display. Release the buttons. Do NOT press these buttons again, otherwise the radio will consider "1000" to be the code.
  3. Use Preset buttons 1 ... 4 to enter the four-digit code number from your radio card. Preset button 1 corresponds to the first digit, Preset button 2 corresponds to the second digit, etc. Each press of the button increments the number by 1.
  4. Once the code shown on the display is correct, press the P.Scan and RBDS buttons simultaneously and hold until the word "SAFE" appears in the display, then release the buttons.
  5. The radio should unlock and be usable shortly afterwards.
  6. If an incorrect code is entered, the word "SAFE" appears, first flashing and then continuously. You can repeat the above steps to unlock the radio once more, the number of attempts will be shown in the display. If an incorrect code is entered again, you radio will be locked for about one hour. After one hour - the radio must stay on and the key must remain in the ignition lock - if the display goes out, the you can repeat the above procedure to unlock again. The cycle - two attempts, one hour lock-up - still applies.
  7. If you lose your radio code, contact your Audi dealer.

There is a white wire coming from the alarm, there should be a blue 15 amp fuse in that wire, close to the brain for the alarm. It sounds like you have blown that fuse.
