Try checking your speakers and speaker wires for grounds and/or shorts. make sure all your speakers are good.. if that all checks out, you may have a bad output ic inside the deck itself.

What does a car do when goes in theft mode

The car will not be able to start with your own key. This reset is for ford cars. Press loud speaker icon on the remote entry key. The alarm will sound. Now put your key in the ignition and to it to the on position. This will reset the alarm. Now turn key to off position. Then turn key back to the on position. The securilock indicator on the instrument panel will light up for 3 seconds and then turn off. The securilock feature is now deactivated. Turn key to off. Then try to start the car with the key. This procedure should work for most ford cars.

1996 plymouth neon started and then died and now won't start

Go to your car and turn the key to the on position. You should hear a whine for about 2-4 seconds that is the fuel pump priming the fuel line. This sound will come from inside your gas tank, but you should hear it as you sit in the car or have somebody look under the car near the gas tank to see if you hear it. It will whine for 2-4 seconds and if you shut the key off and turn it back on, you should hear the whine again. If you don't hear anything, then it sounds like your fuel pump is out. If you do hear something then it might be ice in the gas filter or in the line somewhere.

hey there, your fuel pump seems to be bad. it will keep pressure while it gets that initial key turn as all fuel pumps kick in then but then loses pressure and doesn't kick in when pressure goes down. if the vehicle doesn't turn over try to tighten the terminal connections. good luck!

Clearly, it thinks you're overdriving it.

Blinking Power Indicator every 2 seconds means the internal temperature is high. (Page 76 of the manual)

Every half-second - speaker impedance too low.

Consider the load presented by the speakers and what their minimum impedance might be.

Check for loose speaker wires.

Sound in voices, videos, and games hesitates every second or second and one half and sounds like a sheep at the hesitations

I bought a Chevy Trailblazer, used, had keyless remote access Viper Alarm after manufacturer. Had trouble with transmission and alarm....took to Chevy dealer they replaced transmission. Now the remote...

You need to find the black push button called the valet button. That is the overide. Get in the car turn the key to IGN as the alarm is going off and then you have either 5 or 10 seconds to push that button once and then 2-5 seconds later the alarm is shut off. To put the car into valet mode which means no alarm at all you put the key to IGN push that button once then pull key out at which point the blue light should turn solid blue.

Or option two is you open a door and hit the lock, then unlock, then lock button again on the remote and the blue led will be solid which means no crazy alarm.
