Unlock button does not work manual lock ok when you unlock with key alarm goes off

I presume if you tried to start the vehicle it would start and drive as normal, just with the alarm going off... If this is the case then depending on make/model etc. the problem is electrical in the alarm system. The alarm is activated by the button, but not with the key in the door. Get the button to work and the alarm will de-activate. This maybe simple, i.e.. 1st checks...battery in fob , or bad connection in fob. Car Battery voltage.. is it 12v.

2nd check faulty receiver/ bad connection somewhere in system. To check correctly you will need to know locations of alarm/remote locking components. Basically find and test fuses (probably won't be faulty with your symptoms but check nevertheless,) then find receiver, and visual check connections in circuit, (bad earths are the most common failing in remote locking). If not working by this point you may want to stop and seek help.

Otherwise you will need a wiring diagram and have some basic voltage drop testing skills to identify problem. Thus you will need to test switching circuit in the remote locking/alarm circuit. Positive the voltage is .5v or more then wiring fault on this side ...negative side test the same way.. Even with wiring problems, receiver may also be faulty as it would probably still work with volt drop of up to about 2v total, . If total volt drop in under 1v then somewhere in the receiver (the switch) there is a problem. If you are on here asking, you probably won't be able to find problem in receiver and that is where you would need an expert.

I have an 05 Outlander with a post manufacture cobra car alarm. Both of my fobs have stopped working - at same time! Immobiliser still works but cannot put alarm on. I am having to lock the car with the...

When both stop working in the same time, you should not look at the fobs, but to the receiver or the logic in the alarm system in the first place. Like if two key don't fit in the lock, anymore, the keys did not change, but the lock.
But perhaps you should ask a tech to solve this problem. To diagnose this one is a bit difficult not being on the car myself.

How to turn off the pro alarm

I would start by replacing the FOB. Sounds to like the electronics inside it are bad. The only reason the horns would go off is if you hit the panic button. There is a slight chance the receiver is bad. But Fobs are cheaper to replace than the receivers. If you have two FOBs and they both react the same, then replace the receiver. Or just ditch the system. The keys (in the door locks) should still activate the alarm system.

Does my kd-g210 have an alarm clock??

Hi there,

It has a clock, but no alarm function is available.

But what a useful feature that would be. I have been on many long trips that I pulled in to a rest stop to catch a nap. An alarm clock would have been handy.

Best regards

Hold the LOCK and UNLOCK buttons together on your remote. That switches the alarm from SILENT to NOISE mode and wiseversa.

Key alarm code

I'm haveing a problem with my 2006 RR Sport car alarm. I can lock the door with the remote, but my alarm keeps going off. It stops but continues to go off during the day. The only message that I have received in the recent month is that my "Bonnett was open". Found out my Bonnett is the hood. Made sure the hood was closed tight and I have not received the message. But the alarm keeps going off.
