what model is the audiovox alarm system? If the alarm is not remote start ready, then you will need to install another alarm system or a stand-alone remote start system.

SOURCE: Tv power comes on but no picture th name Audiovox

There are two places to look for the problems, the backlight inverter board and the power supply. Look at the power supply first since it is easier to get to, look for burnt parts, bad capacitors, etc.
Please post back what you find.

SOURCE: tv wont turn but makes clicking noise

There is short circuited component/s at its main board. Power supply regulator section is working fine. You have to check for fault at its horizontal scan output section circuit. Check the horizontal scan output transistor, and check. Contact any service technician. If you wish to get some details, check the site linked here. Pull up older posts.

How do I deactivate my aps57c mobile audiovox alarm

  • Locate the push-button LED switch on the alarm box under the driver's side dash. The small red or black button is used to manually disable the alarm.
  • Put the key in the ignition and turn it to the "on" position. This activates your vehicle's battery, but doesn't start the engine. Press and hold the push-button LED until the LED light stops blinking. Once the LED stops blinking the alarm is disabled until you manually reset the alarm.
  • Start the car. Then, press and release the push-button LED switch once, to reset the alarm.

If everthing is properly connected and the system does function,you may need to program the remotes. But first,let's check a couple of things. Turn the ignition on and press and release the push button LED three times and check for a response.The alarm should chirp one time. If the alarm chirps one time, press and release the lock button on the remote. If the alarm responds with a long chirp, press and release the push button LED one time,should hear two chirps; press and release the unlock button on the remote. The alarm should respond with a long chirp. Press and release the push button LED one time, you should hear three chirps, press and release the green button. You should hear a long chirp from the alarm. Press and release the push button LED one time, you should hear four chirps from the alarm; press and release the (1)button on the remote. continue the process for button(2).Now, if you do not hear the one chirp in the beginning, the system is not responding. Check your power and ground connections. If the system does chirp but, no response from the remote, check your antenna cable for proper connection at the module and the antenna. If the connections are fine, check the remote. Also,it is possible that there is major RF interference where you are located. If all of the above check out, try moving the vehicle to a different location and test.

Check to make sure that the valet is not engaged. The alarm will notify you by having a constant lit light. If the light flashes like it should open a door and check to see that the light blink on and off as if the alarm were triggered. If this happens the your problem is with the siren, just have it replaced.

How do I disarm a audiovox prestige car alarm?

Locate the valet/override switch (button), (if you can't locate it, try tracing the wires under the dash from the main unit, usually a black and gray or black and red set of wires). Turn key to "RUN" position then press the button, the alarm's LED should light up solid at this time indicating valet mode as been set.
