    No valet button, no remote, how can I turn alarm off?

    There is no beep when locking or unlocking the doors. Car starts on its own at odd hours.

Look under the dash for a small silver toggle switch....this is a disable switch for the remote start portion of the system..you may have kicked it / bumped it with your foot, causing the remote start portion to be deactivated. Just flip the switch the opposite way and try again..
Also, there may have been a pin style switch installed under the hood...Check to see if it is bent or broken, if it is, simply disconnect it and insulate the wire that was going to it. 
This wire is used as a safety to keep the vehicle from remote starting while the hood is up..to keep people from being injured if the remote start is activated while the engine is being worked on. 
Have whatever shop installed the system replace your pinswitch if that is the problem.

If you have the correct instructions and it asks for you to push a valet button, it is normally found inside the vehicle. Look around the lower dash and foot area and around the drivers side area for a small push button that does not look factory installed. May be red or black. If it is a newer model remote start, the button could also be on the remote start antenna usually mounted in the middle of the windshield.

Alarm keeps turning on when I turn on my car starter


Okay, the Avital 4111 is a one button remote starter. So, it has no way of locking your car doors except if wired to lock after start or, after shut down. In the 2010 CRV, the unit should have been wired to disarm the alarm before start(brown wire in kick panel) and to unlock doors when running (grey wire in kick panel in same harness as disarm) with the press and release of the remote starter remote. If the unit is not working in cold weather it may be due to the installer using a valet key instead of a bypass and/or the unit may be programmed for virtual tachometer or voltage instead of having a true tachometer wire connected.

The blue light on solid means that your alarm is in the valet mode. Open any door, press lock, unlock, lock. This should put the alarm back into an active mode. Afterwards, check the system for normal operation.

The Zs mean that the alarm is in valet. To exit valet with the remote: open any vehicle door, press lock,unlock,lock. The zs should disappear from the remote allowing you arm the alarm.

Maybe the installer did not hook up the remote starter unit to disarm the factory security system upon entry or remote-starting. Ask the installer to double check that part of the install as it would cause the factory security to trigger even though you unlocked the vehicle with the remote start unit remote.

What you need to find is the valet button which i believe is the blue blinking LED that should be in the dash and it blinks when you arm the system. So try this.. disarm the system and get into the car like normal than put the key into the ignition turn the key to "run" and press and hold the blue LED button till it turns solid. You are now in Valet mode which means the alarm is OFF. Now try starting the car and see if it starts all the time. If it doesn't start and the little blue light is on solid than we have other problems. Because with the alarm in Valet mode the starter disable feature is turned off. However if it does start all the time and gives no problem you might have a loose ground that has to be tightened up or other wiring issues. Now for the alarm going off at random times, you have whats called a "shock sensor" that is adjustable. What this boxs job in life is is to wait for any "impact" like a breaking window or something hitting the car. Notice i didn't say motion. The shock sensor is adjustable and this could be the random going off problem. The shock sensor would be a little box zip tied to a wire loom under the steering column. let me know... mark
