Question about Computers & Internet
I moved recently to this rented unit and have the napco xp 400 alarm, I enable it but because I don't have the access code I can't disable it. I have to unplug it during the day and plug it at night. I shut down the ac to see if this would work but it didn't. I want to be able to arm and disarm the alarm.

Ask seller or previous owner the code, or read in the manual how to reset the system to factory defaults
On the previous version (Simon3) it was press cancel + clock set + Minutes+ at the same time and the power up from battery

SOURCE: uniden vs1100xr car alarm will
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.

I believe there are 2-3 different access codes-INSTALLER,USER,-Ive also had problems with programming the transmitters into certain " groups" with store bought units.

Change the battery, 2-way remotes require 2 slim batteries on top of one another. Regular remotes only require 1.

Enter this command to turn on the Bell, keypad
sounder and keypad LEDs for 2 seconds. The
battery is tested during a Bell Test, and automatically
every *24 hours to ensure proper battery
operation under load. The Alarm output
requires a battery in order to supply the specified
output. If the battery cannot sustain the load, a
low battery indication will be displayed. A battery
test is also performed on power-up after a 3
if the battery fails test replace it and try again.
Assuming no programming changes were made to the zone types that would diable the bell output. if this does not help, time for an upgrade. : ( GL
