Question about Vehicle Parts & Accessories
Purchased this system for my wife's van over 6 years ago - finally got around to installing it this weekend - yes, it sat on a shelf for 6 years. After installation, the unit appears to operate properly: I can get it into and out of Valet mode correctly and the doors lock when the ignition is turned on and unlock when the ignition is turned off - a default setting. Following the instructions in the owner's manual, I can get the system into programming mode using the key and Valet/Programming button but after that it does not appear to accept any input from the remotes - even with the remote right beside the antennae. I have replaced the batteries in the 473V remotes and followed the instructions in the manual (as well as numerous postings on the net) for resynching the remotes - no joy. Is there a way to test the remotes and or a sure fire way to synch them with the unit?
First make sure that the antenna cable is plugged into the brain then, make sure that the antenna cable is plugged into the antenna.
Now, turn the ignition on, press and release the valet switch then press and hold. While holding the valet switch, press and release the lock button on the remote. The system should respond with a long chirp. repeat for second remote.

this "could" be a bad ground, however, usually when these units lose ground, they activate the siren at a really low level, because they are trying to ground through the siren.
I would say to check where the antenna plugs into the main unit,(brain) but honestly, in 17 years of dealing with DEI alarms, 99.9% of these problems are due to the transmitter - it may blink the LED like it is supposed to, but that doesnt gaurantee it is sending a signal. I would recommend buying a new transmitter and programing it to the brain.

Its going to be either the wires going to the locks or the programming in the alarm. The only way to tell is to get the wiring tested. A plug could have just pulled out also. Do many variances for one straight answer.

SOURCE: Scytek 5100 RS-2W system Problem
How do you reset the remote, alarm. I have a scytek two way security alarm, remote start. I can lock and unlock my vehicle, however the remote start and alarm won't work. When I press the middle button to have the car start it just beeps, and when I lock my car it just locks it doesn't beep to let me know the alarm is on.
Please advise, do I need another alarm, or just reset it.

Any valet switch will work. Then simply program your remote. As long as you have a DEI remote there should be no problem unless you are trying to program a two way remote (pager) to a one way system (non pager)

Rotate the key from the center to the unlock position.
Press the horn button on the remote keyless entry transmitter.
Count the number of chimes that you hear. The number of chimes tells you which mode you have set.
Press the horn button again in order to change the mode. Continue to press the button until you hear the number of chimes that indicates the mode that you want.
Turn the key back to the center position and remove the key from the door key cylinder.
In order to exit and save the current feature customization modes use the following procedure:
