SOURCE: car alarm stoped working

First check the hood plunger switch. Next look for a valet switch under dash or in glove box. Turn key on and press the switch.

SOURCE: spy car alarm manual

Forget the advice on how to steal a car. It's pointless and does nothing to answer your question. I suppose alicantecoli is proud of his abilities (I used to be too, but I don't do that anymore), however he is a fool if he thinks a 2-Way alarm is useless. While it may only take him minutes to disarm the alarm (waaaaay too long), with a 2-Way system & GPS tracking it would only take me seconds to find it again. Or you could use the silent alarm feature, allow the car to be stolen and immobilise it in the middle of the road. Beside all of this, a simple set of relays properly wired to monitor the alarm system power status can turn those few minutes into an hour or two. Anyway, to your question.

The install manual for the (rebranded) Spy 2-Way Car Alarm is a pathetic chinglish translation printed on a single sheet. It would do you no good unless you have some experience with electronics, and a working knowledge of your car's wiring. That being said, here's the wire colours for you:

6-Pin Connector:
Purple : A/C
Brown: On
Yellow: Start
Red: 12v+
Black: 12v-

12-Pin Connector:
Central Locking - it depends on the type as to how you wire it...
Yellow: Nc
Y/Black: No
White: Com
W/Black: Com
Orange: Nc
O/Black: No

Brown: Flash Lights
Brown2: Flash Lights
R/Black: Trunk/boot release
Red: Siren

8-Pin Connector:
Red: Window roll-up
Green: Side-door + trigger
Blue: Side-door - trigger
Yellow: Engine cut-off
White: Acc
Orange: Foot-brake
Purple: Handbrake
Grey: Start-sensing

2-Pin White: LED
2-Pin Black: Temp. Sens.
3-Pin White: Shock Sens.
3-Pin Black: Microwave Sens.
These four plug in in this order: 2PW, 3PB, 2PB, 3PW

Inside the unit (under the sliding cover on the top) there are three jumper settings: Elec/Pneu CL, Lights Flash/No Flash, Auto-arm/No auto. The first of each pair is the default setting.


Hope this helps. That, honestly, should be all you need. If you do need more info, then please DO NOT TRY TO INSTALL THIS ITEM YOURSELF. As it says on the manual, "Install the system by a professional people."

SOURCE: Disarm car alarm

first off ill assume the alarm goes off and oviously you have no remote. first disconnect the negative ground (black wire on your battery) so you can work with out the alarm going off.

the "brain" of the alarm should be located on the drivers side underneath the dash, go underneath and look for a small black box zip tied into place with wirescoming into it that looks like it shouldnt be there. it should have crimestoppers inscribbed into it.
there will be wires clipped into the brain, disconnect these and your alarm is deactivated.
to remove, trace wires to where they tie in, cut off wire that leads to brain leaving origonal facory vehicle wire there, and tape over cause you dont want anything to ground out. once you have done this, reconnect the negative, and your good to go

Noise of 2004 Volvo s40 2.4i


Cannot figure out what that part is, but it has a vacuum line connected. Therefore, it should not be functioning unless the engine is running. I would have to guess there is a wire crossed in the key cylinder. The presence of the key should activate the warning system and perhaps deactivate the security system. However, the engine system wiring comes in proximity to the warning wiring behind the ignition switch near the contact reel. It's possible you have a short in that area. I am posting access instructions from autozone.com.
CAUTION Models equipped with a Supplemental Restraint System (SRS), use an inflatable air bag. Whenever working near any of the SRS components, such as the impact sensors, the air bag module, steering column, and instrument panel, disable the SRS.

  1. Before servicing the vehicle, refer to the Precautions Section.
  2. Disconnect battery cable.
  3. Remove steering wheel and air bag module. Refer to Steering Wheel removal and installation.
  4. Remove steering column covers. Remove or disconnect the following:

    Screws from lower coverClip mounting between the upper and lower coversLower steering column coverUpper steering column cover
  5. Remove the contact reel:
    1. Disconnect the left connector.
    2. Remove the screws.
    3. Remove the contact reel.

    2. Remove the screws.
    3. Remove the ignition switch.

To install:

1995 gmc serria will not start no click from starter, manual trans


replace the starter. Being a manual transmission you should be able to pop the clutch to get it going till you replace the starter. If you don't know how to pop the clutch follow these steps. That way you can still drive the car. When need to.
  1. Get inside the vehicle and depress the clutch to shift the car into "Neutral." Insert the key into the ignition and turn it to the "On" position. This is the place the key would be after a normal turn of the ignition switch for starting. Instead, with a clutch pop, the ignition will already need to be on so that when the engine is turned over, the key is in the On position.

  2. Move the car in position to be pushed from behind or sent down a slope for the starting procedure. Check to see that the brakes will work when pressed and how hard the steering wheel will need to be turned before the vehicle is started. Power steering and brakes will make both systems work poorly until the vehicle is started.
  3. 3 Sitting inside the driver's seat with the clutch depressed, put the shifter into first gear. Keep your foot depressed onto the clutch and the brake pedal without depressing the brake pedal. Roll down the window and signal to your helper to push. As the car rolls, you will steer toward any slope that will assist the helper in getting the car down the street. Allow the momentum of the vehicle to increase to constant motion.
  4. 4 Release the clutch quickly and be prepared to throttle the gas pedal as the engine is turned over by the motion of the vehicle. When in gear, the engine will be forced to crank and the ignition will send a spark for a start. The quicker the vehicle is going before the clutch is released will determine how many times the engine will turn over. More cranks equal more opportunities to ignite the gas and air for combustion and the engine to start without a battery or starter

You have to remove the steering wheel with a puller,and the lock plate ,with a lock plate remover tool,and the cancel for the turn signals,and then the turn signal switch,then you remove a screw on the right side about 2 o clock position,and the lock and key will slide out.

I can't shift my car from the park position.


mcdevito75 here, When you turn the car off the ignition switch locks the steering wheel, sometimes when you go to start the car it starts but you can"t move the shift lever due to the steering wheel being locked, try this, put the key in the ignition switch, turn the key and at the same time move the steering wheel, if you can move the steering wheel even a 1/2 inch that should free up the shift lever also.
