Question about Vehicle Parts & Accessories

I have a automatic key button which opens the door and disables the alarm, however the button does not work, therefore does not open the door to the car and disable the alarm. The automatic key shows the car, if broken into the car on the key will light up and show where the car has been hit.

Although you did not mention the type of alarm, usually the process for manaully disarming an alarm is: key on, press and release valet switch. The valet switch should be a push button located near the drivers kick panel (where your left foot would rest when driving) or, for newer alarm models,the valet switch is incorporated into the LED light or the antenna.

Jeep Grand Cherokee 2004 alarm dash light flashing quickly and every morning alarm sounds at about 6am. Light used to flash about every 10 seconds.

well it needs service,
the VTA is complex.
read this chapter, first. or get car serviced.
my guess is there is a bad door switch. (common)
using the metal key part, is in the operators guide
this mode , (key metal ) disables the alarm system, a feature of it.
if you have a EVIC display in the dash cluster, it tells you which door s failing, lacking that, it takes a scan tool to learn that.
if the horn honks 3 times when open the door. that means
it tripped while your were gone, (door switches tripped)

here are the links to the free books
the operators guide (2004 get it before 2018 or its gone)

if really curious how it works. see this.
click WJ
then click veh, theft and security
bingo the whole ball of wax. chapter 8Q from JEEP,

My car alarm / key remote broke, I believe it is a factory alarm. I don't want the horn to go off, what do I do to disable the alarm system once I open the door

You may be able to disable the alarm, by opening the door with the key. Or pull the fuse, to the alarm system in the fuse box. Open your key fob remote, and check the internal 3v battery as well. It could be dead, or the (outer) case buttons are not making contact with the board which has the actual buttons on it. When pressing the buttons manually on the board they should make a "click", else wise they are the source of your problem in the remote.

How can i disable my skoda fabia alarm

First method to disable the alarm by using the remote control. The car will automatically lock if it is not opened in 30 sec.
Once you unlock the vehicle by inserting the key into the driver door you then have to insert the key into the ignition lock and switch the ignition on within 15 seconds after unlocking the door in order to deactivate the anti-theft alarm system. The alarm will be triggered if you do not switch on the ignition within 15 seconds. For more reference check out this video

Opening the drivers door doesnt automatically open the passangers door

Some vehicle locking systems allow a single button press to unlock the driver's side door and require a second button press to unlock the passenger side door. Likewise, use of the key to unlock the driver's side door does not automatically unlock the passenger side.

Alarm won't turn off

the valet key doesnt have a transponder chip in it, so it will allow physical turning of keyways and operations, but will not disable the alarm and often wont disable the immobilizer.

sorry to say i think you will need to get an autolocksmith , or main dealer to get you a functioning key with transponder chip mapped to your cars rfid system that will allow alarm to be enabled /disabled

I have a 2007 Toyota Corolla type S. My problem is that when I press the unlock button on my remote the doors unlock and the lights flash however when you open the door the alarm sounds. It has been...

This sounds like a bad alarm module, the doors unlock but the alarm doesnt shut down, so it wont let you start it because its not shutting down, the light flash and door unlock put starter disable and horn stay active, most good alarms have liftime module warranties, if you take it back to who installed it and ask them or if it was already in the car when you bought it then you will need to disable or replace it. hope this helps, also to disable it just trun key on then open a open try key off and within 10 sec push the button under the dash its a small red button this will put it in vallet mode.
