You must see if the wires and break , use the continuity tester VOM, for repair or replace the wires. However you must tight the wires or clean from oxide, or corrosion and try again.
If you can NOT fix it. Go to the repair shop.
God bless you

SOURCE: problem with my viper alarm system on my 98' odyssey

first, you need to manuslly disarm the alarm. open driver's door, put key in ignition, turn on ignition, an then within 10 seconds push the valet/program button for a couple of seconds. (it is the little spring loaded push button that they installed with your system. probably in the kick panel or under dash

SOURCE: remote start issues with 93 acura legend l base 4 door

Generally there are two types of factory ignition key security types one creates a circuit when you put and turn the key(these generally have a chrome nipple on them which creates the contact)and the other type is an approximity type(most common)if its the approximity type you can test this by trying to start the car(with the remote) and hold the ignition  key as close to the ignition barrel as possible, if this works let me know and i;ll pass on the next step.If not you may need a bypass module.please provide more details about the car and the alarm.(model etc)

SOURCE: why does my 563 t hornet car alarm not chirp

Your system may be in valet. Open any door, press lock button on transmitter, press aux, press lock again. If your alarm was in valet, it's now active, if it was active, it's now in valet. Hopefully, this was the issue and nothing is wrong with your siren.

SOURCE: i have the alarm system hooked up, i have the

The seven flashes of the parking lights when you attempt to remote start is the tach signal not being programmed. If you hooked up the tach wire already, turn the ignition on, press and release the programming switch three times. Turn the key off, press and hold the programming switch and start the car. Continue to hold the programming switch while the vehicle runs. The parking lights will be flashing while the tach is being programming. Hold for at least 15 seconds for a good signal. This allows the engine to "smooth out" into a normal idle rpm.
If the parking lights are not flashing, the tach is not being programmed. You may have skipped a step during the set up for the programming or, you have the wrong tach wire. If you went to a injector or coil wire, it is the uncommon wire. This means that there exists two or three wires at the injectors/coil packs. One or two of the wires are the same color at all of the injectors/coil packs and one wire is a different color at each injector/coil pack.

Car is "dead" but battery/alternator/starter are all in working order. Hornet is causing this.

My 95 sierra dies and won't start. no lights on dash then suddenly lights come on and truck will start. please help.


first check the connections at the battery. make sure there is no corrosion between the cable end and the battery.

When you say it wont start can you hear the starter cranking the engine over or is the vehicle completely dead?

If its completely dead I would check for power to the ignition switch. if there is power than I would check for power out of the switch. If there is no power than possible the ignition switch is failing.

I might be able to get you some wiring info if needed. just let me know.

My 92 volvo 240 has been sitting outside all summer. i have started it a few times and went to start it today. it won't do anything. what could be the problem and a solution?


"It won't do anything" means that there are no dash lights, no buzzers, nothing?
Any car has very slight electrical drains when it is shut off. For one thing, the clock is running, but there are a number of other tiny loads as well. With a good battery, you should be able to park a car for six months to a year and still start it.
However, if you start the car several times without running it long enough to recharge the battery, or if the drain is larger than it should be due to electrical problems or aftermarket accessories, you can get a failure to start.
Unfortunately, maintanence-free batteries don't tolerate being run completely dead very well, and many owners have unhappily found that draining an older battery once or twice was the last straw that ended their battery's life.
I suggest that you borrow a charger or a set of jumper cables to start the car, and drive it 30 minutes or so to fully charge the battery. If you have more problems, get the battery load tested at a shop that sells batteries to see if it is still OK.

Car won't start


Either an interior light or head lights were left on all night, or there's a dead short in the electrical system, or... the battery completely failed internally such as a weak spot or defect in the plates. At any rate, it all obviously points to the battery. Replace the battery.
