Re: I cant disarm my alarm
Get inside the car, turn the key to the on position, the alarm is going to sound so do not panic when the alarm sounds press the valet button one time and the alarm should stop. To place the alarm in valet mode cycle the key with the door open on then off then press the valet button one time and the alarm should go into valet mode meaning the alarm light will be on steady.

Sounds like your alarm is set up for "Silent Arming" for when you dont want to wake up neighbors, kids etc. scroll thru your setup menu and see if silent arming is engaged, if so disengage.If you need more help email me email@example.com (Jim)
Check out http://www.myvirtualmonitoring.com. They sell an IP alarm transmitter that will send you notifications for alarm events. The transmitter includes a free iphone and android application that lets you arm and disarm your alarm panel remotely, as well as see an event log. Very good price, better than the price of a GSMX, and more features.
Your alarm should have a button that was installed called a valet. What you want to do is put your key in the ignition turn it to the on position (Don't start it) then with the car in the on position hold down the valet button until the led light on the alarm goes solid and you should here the alarm beep twice. now your alarm will be disabled. To reable the alarm do the same thing.
You have to turn your ignition on and press the valet button switch, to turn off the alarm. Then, you have to use that same valet button to learn the remote to your alarm, following the steps in the installation manual.
First things first. Check the fuse that powers your alarm system. If that seems to be ok then try the next simple option. Open the hood and disconnect the negative battery cable. Then turn the ignition to the start position for approximately three minutes. This will allow for any remaining energy to dissipate from your system. Now you can reconnect the negative cable. *** Before trying your alarm *** turn the ignition on and off 3 times quickly. Make sure you don't start the vehicle. Now you can exit the vehicle and try your alarm. FYI you can always stop at a nearby Best Buy store for additional assistance. They are usually very helpful. Good luck and best regards, Rico...
ok lets check basics first
do you have lights on and power to head lights this is a plus if you do
if you dont its either dead cell in battery or bad alternator that wont charge battery
ok did you try a manuel start tool too starter or old fashion way jack car up and apply long screw driver between power cord and ground on starter this is also a manual start if car turns over its not a relay
look at your key has it been worn down or is it brand new these are indicators of old key cylinder wear
i had to replace my key cylinder the first day when i bought my truck they made me new key but cylinder was wore out i had several problems with other vehicles in this manner
if you made a new key cause old key was bad that doesnt change the fact that key cylinders wear out too
the relay panel is under the hood on fords now heres a suggestion to test them find similar relay in panel box pull out and place in bad relays place
this can tell you if the relay is truley the culprit but remeber when you change it put the other back in the spot you took out
cars come with average of 6 to 8 exact relays for different components of vehicle but they are the same in the panel
did you install a new car sterio system in the vehicle if you did you probably got the wires crossed or not in right place on wireing up radio fords tend to run a couple components threw sterio wires under my profile here i speak of proper wire harness and wire connections this is crucial
this is basics without computer diagnoses its the most info i can give you at this time
