Question about Audiovox Prestige Code Alarm Remote Alarm Protx6

1 Answer

Alarm remote not functioning properly, no valet switch.

Just like the title says. I can't start my car. The remote is acting very strange. When a battery is put in the remote, the green light flashes wildly for about five seconds, then after that; when a button is pressed, nothing happens. The green light is only supposed to function when a button is pressed. The valet switch in my car was ripped years ago because the wire from the switch would be next to my right foot. I can't start my car. What do I do from here?

I would think the button is activating the fob, or when you put new battery in is it the right way or you may have pushed something inside and its come lose off the board, it would need opening up and having a look, and testing the switch.

SOURCE: how to disable or reset a Prestige car alarm.

The valet switch,on the newer Prestige alarms, is a push button LED or, it's incorporated into the antenna. In both cases, turn the key to the on position, then press and release the valet switch. The alarm will respond with two chirps confirming that it is disarmed. You may now start the vehicle. After you successfully disarmed the alarm, turn the key to on position, press and hold the valet switch for approximately 5 seconds, the LED will come on solid. Turn the key off.The alarm is now in valet. You can take it out of valet in the same manner.

Sounds like the unit may have seized (common occurence with this unit). Disconnect the positive battery terminal, wait ten seconds, reconnect. If you have a security radio be sure to have the code handy.

Locate a black push button switch under the dash or near the drivers side kick panel (older model), or the alarm has a push button LED light(newer model) or the Valet switch is in the antenna(newest model). Turn the ignition on, press and release the switch one time. This should disarm the alarm.

For programming: turn ignition on, press and release the valet switch three times: you will hear one chirp from the alarm, press the lock button on the remote. Press and release the valet one time, you will hear two chirps from the alarm, press the unlock button on the remote. Repeat as necessary. Turn igniton off to exit programming. Test remote for proper functioning.

SOURCE: Prestige car alarm, 1991, on a BMW318is 1991. Prevents starting car

follow all the wires from the alarm back to the wiring loom then reconnect the wires that have been cut ,simple but time consuming job and it possible as i have done a few on beemers and these remote start things ,complete waste of time fitting in the first place people seem to think they know it all and listern to the so called experts with their 1950s BBC english and automaticaly assume that because they talk posh they know it all and pay a fortune for junk alarms when a padlock and chain around the steering wheel is a better antitheft device

Reset remote for a Viper 300 alarm 2 button 2 way to start my ignition no valet switch


If you follow this diagram, you should be able to locate your Valet switch. I have seen other questions like this and I believe that they have hidden the function by using an exsisting switch, seldem used(?), in your console. All you should have to do is eith tract the wire that comes from the port on the alarm modules body, or apply +12vdc to one of the leads identified for the valet function.

Best of luck!

Valet 562t remote was in valet made & doors would only lock & unlock & now when i was trying to get out of valet mode it flashes lights but nothing more now. What could be my problem?


need to get the owners manual and follow the programing . cause what you are doing at this point is programing the alarm . basicly you are turn on and off features of the alarm try to function the valet switch.. and hitting the remote lock and unlock buttons . on some alarms you flip the valet switch and press lock or unlock button on the remote and listen for a certain number of chirps from the alarm to know what you turning on and off . that is why you need the manual so you know what feature of the alarm the number of chips is turning on or off when you hear them

I have 2004 chev tahoe w/ a viper remote starter system,but no key fob. I replaced the car battery & now the cars computer won't let it start. How do I reset the computer?


The car's computer wont let it start?
Well, if you changed the battery and the viper alarm is the issue; locate the push button valet/programming switch. Turn the ignition on, press and release the switch. The alarm will disarm and you can start the vehicle.
To put the alarm in valet, turn the ignition on then off, within 10 seconds press and release the valet switch. The LED will illuminate solid to show that the system is in valet.

Try disconnecting the alarm putting in a valet mode and start the vehicle with the car key. If you don’t know how to put in a valet mode, check your alarm manual. After if the car start them the problem is the car alarm, make sure all the doors, trunk, hood are close if still not working check if the hood, trunk switch are working properly.

Sounds like you have a bad remote, bad battery in the remote, or it needs to be reprogramed to the alarm. If the alarm has been set with the remote, it will need to be disarmed with the remote as well, unlocking the door with the key and getting in, will set off the viper. If you know where you valet switch for the alarm is(small black push button), just turn the key forward till everything on the dash lights up, push the valet switch for about one second and let go. The alarm should shut off in a couple seconds. This will allow you to drive the car until you get you remote checked out.

Need to turn the valet switch off On 1999 Nissan Maxima


Look for alarm Brain box and look for wires coming out black and red going to valet switch. to turn valet on turn ignition in ON position and press-switch or flip depending on the type of switch. If it a basic alarm just disconnect the main wiring harness to alarm box- unplug and the car should start. Good luck and thanks for using FIX YA

You need to first look under the drivers side dash area near the hood release/fuse panel area and see if there is a valet switch. The switch will look like a little toggle or a push switch. After you locate it, turn the ignition switch to the on position(dont start it) and flick the valet to the opposite position it is in now. If done correctly in most cases the red system light will stay a constant instead of off or blinking indicating you are in valet mode. Next try to start the engine. If this doesnt work you need to remove the alarm system and repair the ignition switch wiring or replace the electrical portion of the ignition switch. The aftermarket alarm cuts into the ignition switch wires and bypasses the start circuit through the alarm module. When disarmed the alarm completes the circuit and allows the car to start. Good luck hope this helps and please rate this.
