RX8 factory alarm problems

Not sure what has happened. Remotes were working just fine then one day i had to kinda press it a couple times to get the doors to lock (kinda like the battery was dying). Then couple days later it quit altogether. I figure some with the alarm still works because when i lock the doors the parking lights flash just like it did when the alarm worked. Only cause i could think would be my stereo system draining to much current from the car, however there are no other electrcal issues with the car. Took it to the dealer because ii thought the remotes maybe needed reprogramming, however the tech said the car wouldnt let him program it. Trying to avoid buying a new alarm from the dealer? Reset the system?? any ideas??

Whan can I do if the vehicle alarm goes off and hunks a couple times a day on its own with no one touching the car?


First we would need to know if it is a factory alarm or something you installed after purchasing the vehicle. Or if the alarm is an aftermarket alarm installed before you bought the vehicle. Assuming that it is an after market alarm, the sensitivity is set too high. They are usually installed under the dash by the driver side kick panel. Find the box (black color) find the slot with the plus and minutes on it and turn the dial to at the most medium. If it is a factory alarm, you might have a faulty alarm module or somebody is messing with your car Just for kicks.

1998 v6 regular mustang the original factory installed alarm system activates by itself 1-3 times a day for no reason.Once the car key is put into door and opened the alarm will go off. Also, the interior...


this happened to us when we got a new key and had it programmed with the car. anytime we locked the doors and opened them with the key instead of the remote, the alarm would set itself off. we took out the fuse for the alarm.

I lost my manual in moving and not sure how to set the alarm. It worked a couple of times and then didn't.


There are several SmartSet units by Emerson. The manuals are here: http://www.emersonradio.com/owners/SmartSet%20Series/ .

For the CKS2000N, you set the alarm by pressing Alarm 1 or Alarm 2 (both are on the top, one to the left and the other to the right) then hold the button while you use the up or down arrows to adjust the wake time. Press and hold the Alarm 1 or Alarm 2 button and then press the Alarm Mode button to select the days of the week you want that alarm to ring (Weekdays, Weekends or Everyday).
Finally set the Alarm selector (on the left side at the back) switch for each alarm to Radio, Buzz or Off. If the alarn selector is off, the alarm will not ring.

I hope this helps.

I changed the batteries on my F350. This set the alarm off on the truck. I cannot get it to turn off. I finally had to cut the wires to the siren. The lights still flash for a minute or longer everytime...


If it is a Ford Factory Alarm it should have key FOBS (remotes). Just press the unlock button 2 times and that should stop it. Alarm systems no matter what brand always have remotes. If you have remotes pressing the unlock should disarm the system 99 times out of 100. If that doesn't work then either the battery in the remote is dead, or the remote is broken. Hope this helps.

Only one of my my k-9 mundial keyless work the other seems fine but wont activate.


Try to reprogram the remotes to the alarm. Have your vehicle key and both remotes ready. The way to do this is as follows:

1. Turn ignition key to run position.
2. Within ten seconds push the valet button 5 times.
3. The siren will give a chirp, indicating that you are in programming mode.
4. Press the large button on the first remote. A chirp will be given as confirmation.
5. Press the large button on the second remote. A chirp will be given as confirmation.
6. Turn off ignition and remove key. Alarm will give long chirp indicating exiting program.
7. Try remotes. Both should be working.

For the next 48 hours, every time the vehicle is starting the siren will chirp indicating that remotes have been programmed. After 48 hours this feature will turn itself off. Also keep an eye on the alarm light as it will also blink the number of times as remotes are programmed every time the ignition is turn on.

Hope this information helps. Please rate. Thank you.

I having issues with my 02 standard softail. the factory alarm seems not be reseting. i can get the bike to start but then dies out on me. then I struggle to get it back on. anyone know how to reset...


The fob may have fallen out of sync with the alarm. Press the key fob button for 20 seconds and they try arming and disarming the alarm. If that doesn't work you will have to re-set the alarm. A battery disconnect can cause this problem. Look in your owner's manual for alarm re-set procedures.

yes the remotes do have batteries. how ever that might be your problem or the remotes lost its code for programing. step when turning alarm off---- if its a factory alarm put the key in the drivers door when the door is closed and lock then unlock it thats the manuel shut down for factory. step 2------- aftermarket alarm. look for a valet switch most likely it would be installed by the driver kick panel or by the under dash fuse box. when u find it put the key into the ignition. turn it to the run position. within 3 seconds press and hold the valet switch for 3 to 5 seconds you should here a confirmation chirp and the led light will stay on solid and wont blink give it a world let me know what happens
