Question about Vehicle Security Systems
I just bought a used 04 buick rendezvous with code alarm installed. I've read all I could find on code alarm but the remote start won't start the vehicle. I see the lights flash twice with a quick click each time and then nothing. And what is the 'key' symbol for on the code alarm remote? I was given 2 remotes, one for the keyless entry and one for the code alarm. The red disable switch in the vehicle is not activated. Not sure if I'm missing something or if I should just have someone check it out.
You can take the car to the dealer and he can reprogram the remote for you. Or you can buy the programming instructions for $9.95 from here: http://www.keylessride.com/order/programming_post.asp?lbfix=yes&make=Scion&remoteyear=2005&model=tC&frid=76C74C4F
You will need a working key to reprogram your remote.

SOURCE: car starter not working
look under the dash for a small silver toggle switch....this is a disable switch for the remote start portion of the system..you may have kicked it / bumped it with your foot, causing the remote start portion to be deactivated. Just flip the switch the opposite way and try again..
Also, there may have been a pin style switch installed under the hood...Check to see if it is bent or broken, if it is, simply disconnect it and insulate the wire that was going to it.
This wire is used as a safety to keep the vehicle from remote starting while the hood is up..to keep people from being injured if the remote start is activated while the engine is being worked on.
Have whatever shop installed the system replace your pinswitch if that is the problem.

If you have an alarm, or remote start with an alarm, you need to press and hold thethe valet button which would be hidden under the dash on the driver side, as you are turning the key sometimes remote starts have a starter disable or an alarm option to reset it that is what needs to be done, some systems even if you dont have an alarm go into a valet mode if your remote battery is old or you never reset it or the alarm kicked in or what have you. if this does not work for you then you will need to bring it to a dealership and have them do a total reset to the computer you can also try disconnecting the negative battery cable, but do this with the door open cause it will reset everything, and google the reset procedure for the key fob (remote).. do that reset for the remote and it should save you money from having to bring it to a shop or dealer.
hope this helps.

i have this alarm also.... for starters your batteries are dead, so get those when you get a chance. (best buy or radio shack) for now you can manually over ride your alarm... what you when need to do is get into your car by using the key, and the alarm is going to go off
1. locate your antenna, which is going to have your blue LED and a square push button. usually at the top of your windshield
2. while the alarm is going off, you will need to put the key in the ignition and turn to the on position, ofcourse it isn't going to crank.
3. within 5 sec of turning the key on, you will need to push the valet button( button on the antenna next to the blue LED) 1 time, release, then push it a 2nd time but hold it down until the alarm shuts off, this will allow you to start the car with the key. if it doesn't work the first time, turn the key off and try it again
the default is 1 press, the pushing it one more time and holding, but it can be programmed by whoever installed to be 1-5. hints, pressing it 2X the holding on the 3, or 3X then holding on the 4 ect
