Is this an aftermarket alarm? If so, first locate the valet switch. It should be a black push button. Next, turn the ignition on, press and release the valet switch. This should disarm you aftermarket alarm. This is the most common manual disarm procedure for Directed (avital, python, Automate, Viper) and Audiovox (prestige, pursuit, code).
If this is the factory alarm and, you don't have the remote. Unlock the vehicle using your key in the driver's door.
It is used for programing the alarm, it is used to disarm the alarm without the remote, [in case remote is damaged] and it is used to put alarm system into valet mode, [service mode] valet mode is only really needed if the alarm has been programed for passive arming, [alarm arms itself].
Your main use for the valet switch, [if programed for active arming instead of passive arming] is to have a way to disarm the alarm if the remote does not work.
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.
was it a professional or shade tree install? the following is off vipers website: disarming without a remote control This feature allows you to disarm the security system without the Remote Control should it be lost, damaged, or disabled. In order to disarm the system without a remote remote control, you must have the vehicle’s ignition key and know where the Valet button is located. Be sure to check with the installer for the location and the number of presses of the Valet button required to disarm the system. To disarm the security system, turn the ignition to the ON position. Press the Valet button the preset number of times (one to five times) within 15 seconds. After five seconds the system will disarm. If the system does not disarm, you may have waited too long; turn the ignition off and on and try again. if that doesn't work try this other
valet mode You can prevent your security system from automatically arming and triggering by using Valet Mode. This is very useful when washing the vehicle or having it serviced. In Valet Mode, the security system will not arm, even with the Remote Control, but all convenience functions (door locks, trunk release, etc.) will continue to work normally. To enter or exit Valet Mode: 1. Turn the ignition on. 2. Turn the ignition off. 3. Press and release the Valet button within 10 seconds. The status LED will light solidly if you are entering Valet Mode, and it will go out if you are exiting Valet Mode.
Locate the valet/override switch (button), (if you can't locate it, try tracing the wires under the dash from the main unit, usually a black and gray or black and red set of wires). Turn key to "RUN" position then press the button, the alarm's LED should light up solid at this time indicating valet mode as been set.
Get inside the car, turn the key to the on position, the alarm is going to sound so do not panic when the alarm sounds press the valet button one time and the alarm should stop. To place the alarm in valet mode cycle the key with the door open on then off then press the valet button one time and the alarm should go into valet mode meaning the alarm light will be on steady.
Look for alarm Brain box and look for wires coming out black and red going to valet switch. to turn valet onturn 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
I had the same problem with my vs1100xr. The remotes for these (and other) unidens have a rolling code. Seems to me that either the remote runs out of new codes and cycles back to the beginning, or the alarm base unit somehow loses track of the codes. Either way, the alarm base unit stops accepting the codes of your remote, and so needs to be purged of its code tracking memory - reset, if you like. This is essentially the procedure for training the alarm base unit to recognise new remote (and forgetting old remotes).
This procedure is:-
1) Disarm alarm, or if in valet mode, take it out of valet mode (push valet button 3 times)
2) Turn the ignition on and off 2 times within 15 seconds.
3) Put the alarm into valet mode (push valet button 3 times) within 15 seconds of completing step 2. Alarm should beep, and remote training has started.
4) Within 15 seconds of completing step 3, push the button (#1) of the first remote you wish to use for the alarm. Alarm should beep, indicating acceptance of remote. Repeat for other remotes you wish to use - up to 4 in total. (Once the first remote has been accepted, you have all the time in the world to make the alarm learn other remotes)
5) Turn ignition on and off to end remote learning mode. Alarm should beep 2 times. New remotes have now been learned and previous remotes forgotten.
Some of these details may vary from country to country - who knows. If this doesn't work, I suggest that you contact Uniden in your country to obtain the procedure. Took me a few tries to get the timing right, what with the valet button hard to get at and having only 15 seconds between steps.
