Last year I had the alarm for the car disconnected. I had to reset the alarm turning on and off the ignition in a certain pattern.... thought I would never have to use again so didn't write down the pattern. Guess what. I need to reset the box. I changed out a dead battery and the alrm triggered. Now i need to reset the box and don't know how. HELP

Since you posted this in the alarm section, i would say the problem is with your alarm, something not right, so the ignition relay circuit in the alarm is stopping the system from engaging the starter relay. You can change the starter if you want but if the problem is in the alarm, it won`t do you any good. you will just have another starter that won`t engage. If the problem is in the alarm then back to whomever installed the alarm for you the car must go.
The car's computer wont let it start? Well, if you changed the battery and the viper alarm is the issue; locate the push button valet/programming switch. Turn the ignition on, press and release the switch. The alarm will disarm and you can start the vehicle. To put the alarm in valet, turn the ignition on then off, within 10 seconds press and release the valet switch. The LED will illuminate solid to show that the system is in valet.
Look under the dash for a small button or toggle switch. Put the key in the ignition, turn the ignition on, and press the button or flip the switch. That will put the alarm in valet mode to get you by until you can get a replacement remote. Reverse the process after you've replaced the remote.
There are a couple things you can do. 1 is leave your key in the ON position (do not start) for EXACTLY 10 Minutes. Then try to start the car. 2. Disconnect the negative battery cable for 15 minutes, put back on and then try. 3. Pull the fuse on the alarm. Find the alarm "brain" and disconnect it from the rest of the system.
You'll probably need to rehook the starter wire to remove the relay that
they would have included in the install.
The FIRST thing you should do is see if you have the "install guide" for
the alarm. It should tell you what colours do what. MOST people put the
"brains" close to the steering column. It may not even be mounted to
anything, or may just be twistied to a wiring loom.
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
Many cars, Maybe not yours can be tricked into thinking that they've never been tripped to begin with. This procedure needs to be done carefully as inpresicsness can mess the car up. With the battery fully charged. ( not jumped, ran the car for awhile, Charged, the battery charger says so) and the cables clean ( they don't just look clean, cause you cleaned them anyway) disconnect the battery and come back later ( 10 MInutes ) Connect the cables to each other ( not the battery ) Hold em there ( 1 Minute ) Connect the positive and let the neg hang free. Turn the key to the run position. everything else off. Connect the neg cable like you mean it ( don't bump it skip it fool with it, Get it on tight in one move). Start the car. The security system never knew it was off and it'll start as if it were already on. Being you didn't tell what kind or year of car or truck you have it'll work on most and it won't hurt the others. It's hard to fix vehicals with out knowing the year model as the rules change with each model year.
OPEN THE DOORS AND BOOT LID AND TURN ON THE IGNITION THEN YOU DISCONNECT THE BATTERY FOR 11 MIN AND RECONNECT ON THE OBC A TIMER WILL START WITH THE ALARM SOUND AT THIS TIME DO NOT DO ANY TIME OR OPEN OR CLOSE ANY DOORS.WHEN THE TIMER HAS COMPLETED 15 MIN IS THENORM THEN ONLY DO YOU STAR UP BUT DO NOT TURN THE KEY BACK WHEN STARTING THIS WILL JUST RESET EVERYTHING.
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).
