Car alarm in-line fuse

I am resurrecting an alarm system and need to know the proper size of in-line fuse to use. No manual. Would it be the same size as what is found at the battery?

What type of alarm system is it? The size of the fuse varies slightly depending how extravagant the alarm is. You could try to low ball it and if it pops the fuse then get a slightly bigger one. You might start out at 15 amps. BUT, if you can tell me the make and model of the alarm then I might find out the correct size. I hope I can help.

Why does my radio fuse keep popping in my 1992 bmw 735i?


Do you have the correct size fuse as listed in the manual or on the fuse cover? If so do you have an after market alarm system? Many times the after market installers will use a wire that they know is hot. often an always on radio memory wire? If you bought the car new and did not install an alarm or change out the radio out then you may need to bring it into a shop that traces wires. if you bought it used and you have the correct size fuse there is no telling. Caution do not in cress the size of the fuse beyond the recommended size or you could have a fire.

What name or acronyms would be for the fuse to the aftermarket security system?


Aftermarket alarm systems do not have there fuses in the cars fuse boxes, the fuses are located in line to alarm system.
You will need to look under the driver side of the dash and locate the alarm box, and then follow wires back a little, there you will see a few fuse holders containing the fuses for that alarm system good day

I had an aftermarket alarm system in my car when i bought it. the wiring was tapped into the fuses, causing one to burn out and the car not to start. i took it out, and the car starts. but now the...


There are still components of the alarm interfering with your vehicles operation. Now, you have two choices. 1. remove all components of the alarm or 2, properly wire the alarm back into power. If you have the FOB's for the alarm and the only reason you removed the it was because it blew that fuse I would tap the power line and reactivate the alarm system as that is going to be the easier of the two solutions. If You opt for option 1 you will need to locate all components of the alarm that were installed to include starter kill devices which may not be an easy task since you didn't originally install that alarm. Depending on how it was wired it it could be using slices that weren't properly made or protected which is causing the issues or they could have used connectors that are hard to identify.

I cannot locate the valet switch to disengage the alarm.


    Preparing for the Installation
  1. Step 1 Gather materials. You will need scissors or a knife, crimps, solder material, solder gun, test light, drill, screw bit, screws, tie wrap, double-sided mounting tape and a voltmeter.
  2. Step 2 Read the installation manual that comes with the alarm. Make sure you understand what the instruction manual says. If you purchased the alarm from an automotive store, you can always ask them some basic questions to help you get started.
  3. Step 3 Call the tech support number for manufacturer of the alarm and tell the tech advisor what kind of car you have. Ask what kind of locking system your car uses and what color wire to connect to in order to interface the lock/unlock feature of your alarm,
  4. Step 4 Ask the advisor how to hook up the relay for the door lock feature, what color wire to connect to for the starter disable feature, and how to hook up the relay.
  5. Step 5 Ask how to set up the voltmeter to test the door lock wires.
  6. Step 6 Ask how to access the factory door triggers.
  7. Step 7 Determine where you intend to place the components by referring to the installation manual.
  8. The Installation
  9. Step 1 Mount the siren to a solid metal surface under the hood. Point the horn of the siren down toward the ground so that moisture cannot collect inside it. Drill a hole through a rubber grommet in the firewall of the car and feed the siren's wire through that hole into the passenger compartment of the car.
  10. Step 2 Connect the alarm's power wire directly to the car's battery. Feed the wire through the rubber grommet on the firewall and into the passenger compartment of the car.
  11. Step 3 Put a fuse on the power wire next to the battery. Check the installation manual for the fuse size.
  12. Step 4 Mount the shock sensor as described in the manual.
  13. Step 5 Drill a hole in the dash where you intend to place the LED status indicator. Feed the LED's wire through that hole and place the double-sided mounting tape to the back of the LED and place it over the hole in the dash.
  14. Step 6 Locate the wires that work the car's power door locks.
  15. Step 7 Connect the door-lock relay to the lock/unlock wires and connect the alarm wire to the relay in the manner described by the tech advisor.
  16. Step 8 Using the advice of the tech advisor, locate the wire that works the courtesy light if the alarm has current sensing.
  17. Step 9 Connect the current sensing line from the alarm to the courtesy light wire.
  18. Step 10 Locate the factory door triggers if the alarm does not have current or voltage sensing.
  19. Step 11 Connect the factory door trigger to the alarm.
  20. Step 12 Find the starter wire on the steering column some inches below the starter switch. Cut the line and connect the starter disable relay. Connect the starter disable wire from the alarm to the relay.
  21. Step 13 Mount the valet switch somewhere under the dash.
  22. Step 14 Connect all the wires to the proper inputs and outputs of the alarm module.
  23. Step 15 Mount the module to a sturdy surface under the dash using the drill, screw bit and screws.
  24. Step 16 Use the tie wraps to secure the wires of the harness and stuff it back under the dash.
  25. Step 17 Arm the alarm and test its performance.

How old is the alarm? If you have glass breakage detection or motion sensors installed one of these could be faulty. If the alarm is more than a year old and it's an after market alarm it is possible the alarm is faulty and needs to be replaced. There is a fuse in the power supply line, usually running along the firewall between the power point and the alarm. Remove this fuse and the alarm should be deactivated but the ignition kill switch will not be active so you can use the vehicle and the siren will stop going off.
