I disconnected the Karr alarm system from my 2000 Toyota camry and now my ac, windows or gauges work. Can anyone help me?

I would start by checking the fuses for the componants that aren't working. Other than the guages, the other componants utilize relays as well. Check those also. If they still don't work you will have to trace them back. I doubt if these componants are at all wired through the alarm system.

I’m happy to help further over the phone at

Hmmm, a puzzle.

The only way to disarm these alarms is with
the factory remote or turning on the ignition.
To turn off the factory alarm.

Ok, do you have the remotes?
If so, let's ID the system.
Go to & use th fcc #s
on the back of it.

If not try this:

Programming Factory Security on GM Cars and Trucks
Instructions for programming the GM factory security systems that do NOT
disarm from the driver's door key cylinder. This programming is for the
cars and trucks listed below.

96+ Camaro
96+ Firebird
99+ GM Trucks
99+ GM Sport Utility Vehicles

Step #1 Turn the ignition on then off.

Step #2 Remove the radio fuse only (not the fuse that says acc/radio).

Step #3 Turn the key to the accessory position. When you do this you
will get two chirps from the door buzzer. Should you hear only
one chirp, your vehicle does not have factory security and these
instructions do not apply. You need to hear two chirps.

Step #4 Press the unlock switch on the door. This will give 1-4 chirps
depending on the program step. Continue pressing the unlock
switch until you get to the desired chirp setting.
1 Chirp - Security off
2 Chirps - Remote Only
3 Chirps - Factory Setting
4 Chirps - Passive Arming

Step #5 Turn the ignition off.

Step #6 Put radio fuse back in.

Alarm is mal- functioning need to by pass alarm made by karr i think orinal equipment car starts sporatacly but have to play with remote to get it t o start help

It is simple just trace the wires - you will notice that installer will have teed in the wires – just cut off the T to the alarm - where you spot wires have been cut and attached with the alarm wires, just remove the alarm wires and rejoin the original wires and you won't face the alarm problem again.

A lot of owners coimment about Karr alarms and are so bad! Do yourself a favor and replace it (they comment like a personal opinnion).

I just got an accord and it came with a paper manual for the 2040. I had to reprogram the remotes though. Here is how Kar said to do it, you will have to fool around with it to figure out which buttons go to which channel, and I only had to press the button 3 times not on off to get it into the mode. So when it beeps once it meets its in channel 1, twice, channel 2:
* First, locate your valet switch. The valet switch is either going to be a small black push button, or a small silver toggle switch. The valet switch is either mounted on the plastic panel on the left side of the vehicle, near your left ankle as your sitting normally in the driver’s seat or directly behind the LED light.
·Turn your ignition key to the “on” position, or start the vehicle.
·Within 10 seconds
+ you have a silver toggle switch:
·Flip the switch “on” and “off” three times. (on-off-on-off-on-off) qIf you have a valet push button:
·Push the push button three times.

* The alarm system will chirp one time, letting you know that the alarm is in programming mode.
·Hold down the arm/disarm (center) button on the transmitter, until the alarm chirps again, confirming that the transmitter has been learned.
·Turn your ignition key off.

* The alarm will give one last chirp, letting you know the alarm has exited programming mode.

* The new transmitter is now programmed to the vehicle, and will arm and disarm the alarm system.

If you have problems programming the transmitter, please feel free to call at (949) 707-4210, or toll free at (800) 395-5277.

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.

yes the remotes do have batteries. how ever that might be your problem or the remotes lost its code for programing. step when turning alarm off---- if its a factory alarm put the key in the drivers door when the door is closed and lock then unlock it thats the manuel shut down for factory. step 2------- aftermarket alarm. look for a valet switch most likely it would be installed by the driver kick panel or by the under dash fuse box. when u find it put the key into the ignition. turn it to the run position. within 3 seconds press and hold the valet switch for 3 to 5 seconds you should here a confirmation chirp and the led light will stay on solid and wont blink give it a world let me know what happens

Car is completely locked down

Let's hopethat the installer actually put in the valet switch for the Viper! Lcate the valet switch. ALWAYS put mine down by the e-brake lever under dash. (I assume that the alarm is going off? If not, go to next step.

Find the alarm/start brain under dash. Unplug main 6 pin 12 gauge wire harness. Wait 5 minutes, then re-appy the power plug. Alarm "may" go off, then try again.

Hit me back if you need further assstance. TTYL

Viper 791 XV Automatic Start Not Working

Try putting the key in the key cylinder but do not turn it at all. Then try and remote start the car. If it works then your bypass module is bad and needs to get replaced.
