How to disable the car alarm but keep the remote starter operational

Hello, for some reason my audiovox prestige starts the car alarm upon termination of the remote start running timer. I do not really like the alarm feature any way, so I was wondering if there is a way to disable the car alarm completely, but to keep the remote starter working?

Find the owners manual for the specific model you have and follow the instructions for placing the system into 'Valet Mode'.

This would be difficult to give an accurate diagnosis without full details like:- what model alarm system or vehicle this is for!

sounds like it might be the starter connection to the key switch is disconnected!

You should here a long chirp. Press the lock button on the other remote, you should here a long chirp. Turn ignition off. Test system.

Maybe the installer did not hook up the remote starter unit to disarm the factory security system upon entry or remote-starting. Ask the installer to double check that part of the install as it would cause the factory security to trigger even though you unlocked the vehicle with the remote start unit remote.

That is your factory alarm. I will assume that this Prestige unit is a remote starter with keyless entry...and you are using the Prestige unit to unlock the doors. Apparently, the unlock wire is connected but, the factory disarm is not. You can turn off your factory alarm by unlocking the vehicle with the key.

You did not mention the year/make/model of your vehicle but, the issue appears to be the factory alarm. The installer failed to make the connection. If you intend to make the connection yourself I would need information pertaining to the vehicle. The (-) pulse before start wire for Prestige remote starters is black with a blue stripe. It is in a 4 pin connector at the module. This wire can be used to disarm the factory alarm before the remote start sequence.

When use remote starter to start car, factory alarm goes off. How can I use the remote starter without this happening?


It sounds as if your vehicle's factory alarm is not disarming before the remote start sequence. You will have to disarm the factory alarm before start. On most vehicles there is a disarm wire, usually in the door that operates with the key cylinder. To test, probe the wire at the key cylinder while unlocking the door with the key. Some vehicles have the disarm wire in the driver's kick panel, but they operate the same way (with the key cylinder). Other vehicles can be disarmed with pulsing the key sense wire. Some vehicles do not have a factory alarm disarm wire,i.e. some Subaru and GM cars and trucks. They can only be disarmed through data modules. More information on the year/make/model of your vehicle will be needed to accurately solve your problem.

Prestige aps-57 remote start...car won't start


Hello hope this can help you. First check the starter wire, it is tan/lt blue located at the ignition harness. usualy during installation of the remote start system this wire is cut leaving you with two ends. one wire is coming from the ignition switch the other is going to the starter. the brain of the alarm hooks into both of these wires. if the repair man cut the wires from the brain and spliced them together he has just put the system back to OEM status leaving the alarm no way to engage the starter. I believe that may be where the problem lies but if not then I would say check your immobilizer bypass module the repair man mave have diconected that.

Thank you,
Luis
