SOURCE: car will not lock or unlock using the green button on key fob

It sounds like the reciever on your car may have gone bad. My only suggestion is to take it to a specialist to check the key fobs reciever.

Check your battery because this also happened to me. Replace the battery or charge it.

Siren works, but no power to instrument after recharging battery. Nothing changed on the bike, was just sitting all winter.

There should be a small fuse box near the battery with probably three fuses inside. Have you checked those?

My Viper Alarm started going off while I was driving. I pulled over, shut everything off. Got out of the car and closed the door and locking and unlocking the vehicle wouldn't shut the car off. I opened...

The alarm may not be going off. Rather it may be a malfunction of the relay that is driving all the sirens and piezo. Next time it happens check for flashing parking lights. They will flash only when alarm is going off. Also ignition input to the alarm prevents this alarm from going off while driving. Panic from the remote can still be triggered. Got to play detective....

Alarm is armed but when door is opened no siren

Is there power to the siren? Are the lights flashing? Can you choose to have the siren on or off? If the lights flash and there is no power to the siren it may be the controller. If you have power to the siren then make sure you have good ground at the siren even if you have to run a ground wire from it

I have a Napco Gem-P800 Security System and the horn or horns have quit working. The manual says the horn output is 12vdc, checked voltage in alarm mode,but no 12vdc. The schematic shows a 2.2k resister...

First thing its not the resistor. The resistor is there only to make sure the siren wires are ok and not tampered with. Second found this in an install manual.

Bell Test

Enter this command to turn on the Bell, keypad

sounder and keypad LEDs for 2 seconds. The

battery is tested during a Bell Test, and automatically

every *24 hours to ensure proper battery

operation under load. The Alarm output

requires a battery in order to supply the specified

output. If the battery cannot sustain the load, a

low battery indication will be displayed. A battery

test is also performed on power-up after a 3
minute delay.

if the battery fails test replace it and try again.

Assuming no programming changes were made to the zone types that would diable the bell output. if this does not help, time for an upgrade. : ( GL

Gemini 7200 car alarm replaced battery fob not working no tx to alarm. please help and many thanks. natec

The problem seems to be the key fob on these alarms goes out of sink with the alarm unit (thats if you have changed the battery and its not responding), but 7200/7300 have the ability to "self learn" the new frequency your key fob has changed to .I dont know why they change frequency but they do.I have had to do this a few times myself. if you have a manual for this alarm it tells you how to do it in there but you will need the round key that comes with the alarm that fits in the top of the alarm unit (siren). Anyway to do it : 1.using the key switch alarm off. 2. switch on again. 3. turn ignition for 1 second then off. 4. push the key fob.within 30 secs. 5. switch dim dip (6) back to off. if it dosent work repeat.(dim dips are in the siren where the wire goes in) and if the alarm goes of while your doing it dont worry but just try and be quick. Hope this helps. Chris 13.

Alarm seems to work; been checked at Toyota but they say siren is broken and say it's a common fault. But everything else seems to work - you can hear the relay clicking; lights flash.

What is actually the problem, "Actually seems to work", what doesn't work.
If Toyota are on about the 9volt battery back up siren then the main siren may be working fine, but that might not be. Most cars especially Vauxhalls have a 9volt battery back up siren, so if someone tries stealing you motor and they disconnect the battery the 9volt battery will keep the siren going off.

How to turn off the alarm,, Changed the battery now the alarm will not go off on my 2001 XG300.

Do you still have your Key Fob? The siren is impossible to turn off without the Key Fob.
Can you start the car? If working properly, the siren will be accompanied by all the marker lights flashing and the car's ignition being disabled.
If you can still start your car, you may have to disable your siren. NOT A GOOD IDEA!
When the battery was installed, did the fuse on the positive side get damaged? Did any wires get pinched or otherwise shorted against the positive terminal or leads? Check all over that area to make sure all is well.
If you absolutely have to, you can pull the siren relay IF it doesn't disable your ignition too. AGAIN! I DON'T BELIEVE THIS IS A GOOD IDEA, but needs must as the devil drives.
If you disconnect it, get it into the shop as soon as you can. You don't want to be without your anti-theft system for long.
I wish you the best!

Just installed smart siren kit, worked ok for 1

Harley alarms, while a decent alarm system, are notoriously hard to set up. On a new installation I have sometimes had to run the set-up routine 4-5 times. I hope you have an owner's manual and/or good instructions. Keep trying to set the alarm up from the beginning. If you miss a key or time limit it's not unusual to have the set-up fail and you have to start all over. Disconnecting the battery will screw things up, so be careful.
