    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.

The boxster has been sat for a while and the battery was flat. after starting it and taking round about 20 miles I thought it would have enough charge. however the alarm went off and now it keeps going off...

Really should diconnect he battery and charge it up for a day or so. Then give it a spin. Shd be OK. The low batery level is playing havoc with the security system sending false signals triggering various states of lay up mode.

The alarm doesn't chirp and no flash of my headlights anymore. Also the blue light stays on the little receiver/antenna on the windshield wheather it is locked or not. What is the problem?

sounds like the alarm went into valet mode. that's usually what a solid blue light means on most viper alarms. check your owners manual on how to take the alarm out of valet mode. with the 5701 alarm its usually done with the remote. hope this helps

I want to permanently disconect security alarm system from 94 Jeep Grand Cherokee.I just bought this SUV with no key fab and alarm is going of all the time .

I don't know of a way of bypassing the factory alarm. From what you describe it sounds like changing the door latch assembly with the built in switches will fix your problem though.
