Hello,

A car alarm that won't stop can be a frustrating thing for a car owner and anyone within earshot of the alarm. Turning the alarm off without your remote may not be as easy as using the remote, but it can still be accomplished.

If the button for dis-arming the alarm on your remote is not working, it is possible that the battery for the remote is dead, that's why the button is not responding. You can check the manual for your audiovox as it should state something about this.

Follow the below steps on how to disarm your car alarm without the remote control:

  1. Use the key to unlock the driver's door from the outside. Often this will work with the passenger door or the trunk as well, although it will not work with every car or every alarm.
  2. Place the car's key in the ignition and turn the car on to shut off the alarm.
  3. Use a keyless-entry remote to unlock the car doors. Often the keyless remote, even if it is not connected to the car alarm, can stop the alarm through unlocking.
  4. Use a keyless-entry remote to automatically start your car. Like putting the key in the ignition, starting a car disarms the alarm because alarms are not made to go off while the car is running.
  5. Find the alarm component within your car's inner frame and disconnect the alarm wires from the alarm system. Cut the alarm wires about 1/2 inch from the alarm system.
Good luck.

What is the valet button located inside of glove compartment used for


It is used for programing the alarm, it is used to disarm the alarm without the remote, [in case remote is damaged] and it is used to put alarm system into valet mode, [service mode] valet mode is only really needed if the alarm has been programed for passive arming, [alarm arms itself].

Your main use for the valet switch, [if programed for active arming instead of passive arming] is to have a way to disarm the alarm if the remote does not work.

I need to re-program the remotes to my alarm. It is a prestige aps255a. Just to lock and unlock all the doors. To arm and unarm is already programmed.


Huh? Pressing the lock button arms the alarm AND locks the doors. Pressing the unlock button disarms the alarm AND unlocks the doors. If this is not happening either there is an issue with the wiring from the alarm to the car or, with the vehicle's door locks.

My remote does everything its suppose to do but i cannot figure out how to arm my alarm system!


Check the owner's manual; many factory alarm system self-arm after a limited time-out. And, a combination of buttons on the remote will often select either silent arming or a horn-beep/light-flash to let you know.
If you want to check if it is armed, you could always use the flat hand on your hood after you think it is armed with the remote.

My 2001 tahoe alarm keeps "auto" arming itself after about 30 seconds. How do I stop it from "auto" arming? Its driving me crazy


this alarm works with the remote and the key, if you lock with the key it arms if you lock with remote it arms,when you unlock it it should disarm, if your having a problem with it not working try the pass/side lock with key, that should shut it down but if it keeps rearming without locking doors then it may be aftermarket, also in your manualy it will show you that some factory alarms are also self arming this is programed through the cluster, using the buttons on the dash, you scroll through the options and shut off auto arming, this is done the same way you scroll for mileage or trip time or oil change life. hope this helps.

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.

05 Dakota remote wont work


That happened to mine too. Is it a "Karr" remote? If so, it seems as if they use really cheap switches. I ended up de-soldering a working switch from the trunk release circuit and soldering it onto the alarm arm/disarm circuit. Works perfectly now. If you don't own a soldering iron, I recommend getting a new one or getting a better alarm system.

Replaced the alternator, now anti theft won't disable


The ignition lock anti-theft switch (19A438) detects if the ignition key cylinder is broken or "slam pulled" during a theft. The ignition lock anti-theft switch is always monitored by the remote anti-theft personality (RAP) module. This allows the alarm system to be triggered in the case that the ignition lock anti-theft switch detects tampering of the ignition key cylinder (even in the event that the alarm is not active at the time).
Refer to the Section 501-14B for more details on the keyless entry remote transmitter (15K601).
The door open warning lamp switch (14018) communicates to the RAP module through the generic electronic module (GEM). This input to the RAP will cause the anti-theft alarm to be sounded if the anti-theft alarm was armed.
The door disarm switches are assembled into both LH and RH lock sets. The door disarm switch must be triggered before the mechanical lock unlocks. This is to prevent the anti-theft alarm from activating when it should have been disarmed.
The RAP module controls the anti-theft system and is the brains of the keyless entry system. The RAP module communicates with the GEM to request that the interior lights be turned ON/OFF with use of the keyless entry remote transmitter, and the GEM communicates to the RAP to inform when the door is opened. Refer to Section 418-00 for inter-module communication.
The RAP module has three wire connectors attached to it:
  • The antenna for the keyless entry remote transmitter.
  • 26 circuit connector (C256).
  • 22 circuit connector (C257).
In addition to the perimeter alarm that uses the door open warning lamp switch, the RAP module also uses the ignition lock anti-theft switch and the autolock/relock feature to prevent theft of the vehicle. For a full description of the autolock/relock system, refer to Section 501-14B .
The THEFT LED is found on the instrument panel between the tachometer scale and the needle pivot point. The LED is illuminated during prearming and flashes when armed or triggered.
Prearming and Arming the System
The system can be armed if:
  • The ignition is OFF.
  • The PANIC alarm is OFF.
  • All doors are closed.
There are two ways to prearm the system:
  • Press the LOCK button on the transmitter.
  • Open a door, press the power door lock button and close the door.
After 30 seconds the system will be armed and the theft indicator in the cluster will flash every two seconds.
Disarming an Untriggered System
An armed system will be disarmed with one of these valid actions:
  1. Pressing the UNLOCK button on the transmitter.
  1. Placing a key in the door and turning to UNLOCK.
  1. Turning the key to RUN or ACC.
The anti-theft alarm can be triggered by the following conditions:
  • The ignition cylinder is damaged with or without the RAP being armed.
  • A door is opened without disarming the armed RAP module.
The remote transmitter can activate a panic alarm which is similar to an anti-theft alarm, but does not deactivate the starter or cause the theft indicator to flash.
Disarming a Triggered System
If the system has been triggered, (the horn honks, the lights flash, and an external starter interrupt relay is engaged), the system can be disarmed by:
  1. Pressing the UNLOCK or PANIC button on the transmitter.
  1. Putting a key in the door and unlocking the door.
  1. Turning the ignition to RUN/ACC (Turning the key to RUN/ACC will not disarm an alarm that has been triggered by the ignition lock anti-theft switch.).

The car arms but the alarm does not chirp


try turning your key on and flip the valet switch, your alarm is most likely in valet mode (youll know cause the led stays on) if that doesnt work, turn the key on and off then toggle thye valet switch 3x and that'll turn off silent mode. Good luck, Martin @ lessco electronics
