Clifford g5 alarm how do i reset it after i was checking fuses it wont let me start the car


The car won't start because the Clifford alarm has a starter interrupt wire where the start wire runs through the alarm system module/relay. The unit then must still be active for the car not to start. If pressing the disarm/unlock button on your Clifford key FOB does not turn the system off, you will after to do it manually. You will need to locate the manual override button installed somewhere in the car that is connected to the alarm system. Turn the ignition switch to "on" or "run" and within 10 seconds press the manual override switch. That will turn the alarm system off and allow the car to be driven normally. I would then take the vehicle to an authorized Clifford or other DEI (Viper) install shop and have them diagnose your apparent problem.

Valet switch location


The valet switch is usually located around the drivers side. Each installation is different, as are most alarms. The valet switch could be part of the flashing LED or, it could be incorporated into the on glass antenna. If not, it should be located below the driver side dash. If you can see the alarm, locate the blue two pin plug and trace the wire to the push button valet. If the unit is manufactured by Directed (Viper, Python, Avital, Clifford, Valet, Automate, Hornet, etc.) turn ignition on then off, press and release valet within 10 seconds, LED will illuminate solid to show system is in valet. If the unit is manufactured by Audiovox (Prestige, Pursuit, Code (new)) turn ignition on, press and hold valet switch for approx. five seconds, release, LED will illuminated solid to show system is in valet.
If you are attemting to manually override the system, turn ignition on, press and release valet switch to disarm.

I need some help on my old Clifford Alarm system. I purchased my Toyota used about a year ago and I can not get the light on the dash to go off. I replaced the batteries in the key ring on both sets but it...


it is unlikely that the light is causing the battery to drain. it sounds like the system is in valet mode, if it's an older Clifford with a two button keypad somewhere (typically on the dash), turn ignition on, and press the * button twice, then press and hold the blank button.
if it's a newer Clifford system (Clifford Matrix), locate the valet button, then turn the key to ignition (ON), then off and press and release the valet button.

I have a viper remote start that came with the used i car i bought, the remote start worked great for the first few months of winter, now when i start it up, it runs for 2 seconds then dies, takes up to 6...


Your alarm may have lost the tach signal, that was learned to it, when it was originally installed. That would cause the remote start to try starting the vehicle over and over again, until it finally stays running, because it can't read the engine speed to know it's running.
If you can find the valet push button switch in your vehicle, try this; Start your car with the key and immediately after it starts, press and hold that valet push button switch until the alarm led on the dash stays lit up or the park lights flash. Then, release the valet switch, shut the car off and try remote starting it. That is the procedure to re-learn the tach signal. Hope it works for you.

How to disable or reset a Prestige car alarm. Purchased a used car with an after market Prestige alarm installed. Alarm somehow tripped and shut off the ability to start the car. I can't find a valet...


The valet switch,on the newer Prestige alarms, is a push button LED or, it's incorporated into the antenna. In both cases, turn the key to the on position, then press and release the valet switch. The alarm will respond with two chirps confirming that it is disarmed. You may now start the vehicle. After you successfully disarmed the alarm, turn the key to on position, press and hold the valet switch for approximately 5 seconds, the LED will come on solid. Turn the key off.The alarm is now in valet. You can take it out of valet in the same manner.

My car will not start.... there is power but car will not turn over....the ignition......? HELP PLEASE !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! its a clifford alarm


Your solution may be difficult. How old is the Clifford? Is there a small rocker switch with a star (*) on one side? If there is, then it is a coded valet switch and you will need to have the unit reset unless you know/remember the "code". Also what kind of car?

Disable viper alarm


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

Battery went dead,clifford alarm locked the engine


Assuming that all is well with the vehicle's electrical system (fuses, etc...), the following should work, as Viper/Clifford uses the "fail safe" method of starter disable, and it only works to lock out the starter when the alarm is functioning properly and in the armed state.

That system has a "starter kill" system. When the alarm is actived, the starter kill is engages, and won't let the starter get voltage from the ignition switch. First thing I'd try is connecting the car's battery while the ignition key is turned to the "on/run" position. Cycle the alarm to arm, then disarm, so that the LED is not blinking. It also may require using the manual override button/switch (with the key on) to reset the alarm. Should start after that.

If all else fails, reconnecting the starter wires back together (they are spliced and running through the alarm via a SPDT relay.

Toad sterling car alarm lost manual and need stop code.


This worked on my car when the clicker died:

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).
