if its stock alarm, owners manual should have directions for "valet" mode. If its aftermarket, try to find the "box" under the dash (look for bundle of wires) and get manufacturers name and model number. internet should have instructions for "valet" mode.
Before you start panicing, relax!!!! Most car alarms can be disarmed utilizing the valet switch. The most common procedure is to turn your ignition to the on position, (not running, just on), and then flip or hold the valet switch in for a second or two. You will know your alarm is in valet mode by simply watching the LED light that was installed, as it will turn on solid. This is the way most of the alarms work, so first thing to do is find your valet switch. Normally this is under the driver dash or in the drivers kick panel area. I have found some in the factory fuse box covers also. If you have checked all these areas and still cant find it, look for a switch attached to the wiring harnesses under the dash also. It really should be mounted somewhere under the dash though. Next turn the ignition on, not to accesory, but to the ON position. Then either flip that switch or hold it in. Your alarm should now disarm.
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.
Look for some sort of toggle switch associated with the alarm system. (something small similar to this [http://www.mouser.com/images/ckcomponents/lrg/7000_toggle_series_new_SPL.jpg]) They call this a valet switch and it's located somewhere hidden and out of the way - usually under the dash - but still in an accessible spot. This basically disables the alarm. Typically, you'd turn the key on (but engine off) then flip the switch. This will put the car into valet mode and basically disable it. There is also usually some sort of LED light associated with the system - again typically blinking when the system is armed - but it will be solid once in valet mode. The clicking you are hearing is the relay that is triggering things. I'm assuming someone got tired of the alarm sounding and got rid of the siren it or clipped the wires to it - hence why your only hearing the clicking and seeing the light flash.
you can unplug the 12 pin harness from the alarm brain under the dash or put the system in valet by turning the key on and holding the valet button til the led stays on solid as well. regards, Martin @ lessco electronics
look for your valet switch. It should be under the dash(a little red button). put the key in the ignition, turn all the way until the instrument cluster lights on, then press on the valet switch for a couple of seconds until you hear the alarm chirp. You're now in valet mode and it should be ok to start the cart.
What you need to find is the valet button which i believe is the blue blinking LED that should be in the dash and it blinks when you arm the system. So try this.. disarm the system and get into the car like normal than put the key into the ignition turn the key to "run" and press and hold the blue LED button till it turns solid. You are now in Valet mode which means the alarm is OFF. Now try starting the car and see if it starts all the time. If it doesn't start and the little blue light is on solid than we have other problems. Because with the alarm in Valet mode the starter disable feature is turned off. However if it does start all the time and gives no problem you might have a loose ground that has to be tightened up or other wiring issues. Now for the alarm going off at random times, you have whats called a "shock sensor" that is adjustable. What this boxs job in life is is to wait for any "impact" like a breaking window or something hitting the car. Notice i didn't say motion. The shock sensor is adjustable and this could be the random going off problem. The shock sensor would be a little box zip tied to a wire loom under the steering column. let me know... mark
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.
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
