Open Question

Have a CHECKMAtE Model KD-70SPC alarm. Mechanic completely messed up the door locking mechanism. I don't know what he did while using the remote. I told him that I didn't have a manual (car is 1997) so, only touch the button # I and NOT to touch buttons II & III. Now my doors don't automatically lock AND THEY DON'T STAY LOCKED!! I come out in the morning to use my car and all door locks are in up position! HELP

SOURCE: 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.

If you don't have the remote then its pretty much useless. I have seen at Pep Boys where they sell replacements for the factory/dealer installed alarms. Or just remove the alarm completely and reconnect everything the way it was.
Without knowing what brand alarm it is a person cannot honestly answer how to disarm it as they all work differently.
If you know a brand and model you may be able to find downloadable instruction on the manufactures web site.

I can't shut my alarm for my dodge stratus rt 2002, I don't have a remote control

If it is a factory alarm it can be disabled by locking and unlocking either the trunk or drivers door. if it is an aftermarket alarm (one installed after the car was purchased) you would have to get a new remote and get it programmed or take the car to a mechanic and have it removed
good luck

Thanks for using FixYa.

Sounds like you have an Alarm remote battery problem. You need to change the remote's battery. The remote's battery gets a little bit of charge whenever you leave it for quite some time. A trip to your mechanic might have been long enough to give your remote's battery a little bit of charge that's probably why it works whenever you get to your mechanic's place. But after that, you've used the little bit of charge that the battery has then It will not work anymore after you get home. Try leaving the remote unused for at least an hour or two then try to use it. Im sure it will work for a bit. Just get the remote's battery changed.

I hope this helps. Have a nice day.

1999 jeep grand cherokee will not start because of alarm

Sounds like the brain quit on you, I would uninstall it or completly disconnect it and have it looked at. Make sure you reconnect the factory wires and start over. Also check the ground for the alarm as it will draw current from what ever wire it can and cause all kinds of things.

Does not cherp

Is your perhaps alarm in "valet mode"? I've got a Checkmate on my Honda, and I can turn valet mode on/off by putting the key to Accessory, then pushing the black button under the left of the steering wheel. The alarm chirps when you switch the mode.
