    hey man,

    My car has been in storage for a while. I just recharged the battery and changed the transmission. The keyless entry still works but the alarm has no audio nor does the lights blink when I arm and unarm my system. The blue led anti theft light remains solid at all times when the battery is charged. I also took a look at the sensor and the red light thats placed on it doesnt come on.......

    p.s.your help is needed!!!

    I have a remote that needs to be programmed for my Prestige Car Starter. The instructions state to switch the Valet switch off and on.

    Where/What is the IGN? Where should the Valet Switch be in relation to the IGN?

IGN stands for Ignition. ie put your key in the ignition and turn it on, but dont start the engine.

I have a new prestige APS-57C remote starter installed in a 2009 Hyundai Santa Fe and I have a problem with the factory alarm going off every once and awhile. The majority of the time everything is fine,...

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.

Reconnect remote starter

Those devices, when operating properly, are commonly not disconnected, but you could attempt to find the power lead and the in-line fuse to make those re-connections, also check the battery(s) in the remote. If the disconnection is more in-depth then you should acquire the installation and owners manual from Audiovox, so as to troubleshoot and maybe discover what else is disconnected.
Good luck...

Prestige aps-57 remote 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,
