If your alarm is going off intermittently:

It could be the shock sensor; usually located around the steering column under the dash. It is a small black box with two small lights ( one red, one green) and a philips screw used to adjust the sensitivity. Counter clockwise reduces the sensitivity.

It could be an open trigger: door, trunk, or hood pin. If you have a pin in the trunk or under the hood that was added by the installer, they sometimes can be inadvertently bent downward by loading the trunk or, some guy changing your oil. If that is the case, just bend them back upwards until they make contact with the hood/trunk lid when closed and you receive one chirp when arming the system.

Here is a quick way to determine what exactly is causing the alarm to trigger:
After the alarm triggers, disarm the alarm and pay close attention to the LED light. One flash is the shock sensor. Two flashes is the hood/trunk pin. Three flashes is the door trigger.

SOURCE: NEED TO KNOW HOW TO RESET A PRESTIGE ELVATCE CAR

REPRIORITIZING A TRANSMITTER’S PROGRAMMING:
To reprogram a receiver channel with a different transmitter button once a code has been stored, there will be two options:

  1. Enter the transmitter program mode of the receiver channel to be reprogrammed. Using any unused button or combination of buttons, push out the stored code by pressing the unused button until a long chirp is heard, then repeat 3 additional times. After this, you can add any desired unused transmitter button. This action erases only that particular receiver channel, all other codes will remain stored.
  2. Enter the transmitter program mode. Using any transmitter button press and hold until a long chirp is heard. If a single chirp or multiple chirps, (up to 7 chirps), are heard, the unit is indicating that the transmitter has already been programmed elsewhere in the receiver. Release the transmitter button and within 5 seconds press and hold until a long chirp is heard. This action forces the unit to erase all stored codes of that transmitter.
The unit then exits the program mode the siren emits the program mode exit chirp pattern. All transmitter buttons for that transmitter must now be reprogrammed. Any other transmitter stored in the unit’s memory still remain operational. If the button is released and not pressed again within the 5 second period, no change in programming has been made to the receiver channel. The programmer can move onto a different channel or erase the transmitter codes as described in 1 above.

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.

That is your factory alarm. I will assume that this Prestige unit is a remote starter with keyless entry...and you are using the Prestige unit to unlock the doors. Apparently, the unlock wire is connected but, the factory disarm is not. You can turn off your factory alarm by unlocking the vehicle with the key.

How to disable or reset a Prestige car alarm. Purchased a used car with an after market Prestige alarm installed. Alarm somehow tripped and shut off the ability to start the car. I can't find a valet...


The valet switch,on the newer Prestige alarms, is a push button LED or, it's incorporated into the antenna. In both cases, turn the key to the on position, then press and release the valet switch. The alarm will respond with two chirps confirming that it is disarmed. You may now start the vehicle. After you successfully disarmed the alarm, turn the key to on position, press and hold the valet switch for approximately 5 seconds, the LED will come on solid. Turn the key off.The alarm is now in valet. You can take it out of valet in the same manner.

My car alarm goes off intermittently


Assuming that you have the dealer installed PRESTIGE alarm unit,I would recommend decreasing the sensitivity of the motion sensor, or replacing the alarm control unit. This black plastic piece, located somewhere in the left kicker panel not only handles the sound/motion alarm, but the flashing alarm, the keyless power locks and the theft code for the radio. It is rare that these boxes fail, more than likely a rusty sensor at the doors, trunk or hood will be the culprit. Mine goes off when cats go under the car, and cant figure why. I am making a decision on fixing the alarm, or fixing the cats.
