Question about Home Security

Open Question

Hi, my NX-12 alarm system is currently encountering a few problems. Firstly, the power light is flashing constantly and won't allow me to arm the system. Secondly, I have remote transmitters that will not work. I have changed the batteries in both, but have had no joy. The system is now about 8 years old. The power light problem started yesterday, the remote problem a couple of months ago. Thanks Anthony.

SOURCE: changed battery and no remote control

I have 94 JGC and the remotes have long since died and replacement batteries did not help. Everytime I lock the door I must use the key in the passenger side door (not the driver side) to disable the alarm and everything is ok. If I unlock the driver side it acts like you describe.

SOURCE: Viper alarm, lights dont flash

Sounds to me like the parking light output wire. They usually have a seperate fuse or the connection is bad. The connection on your vehicle should be behind the pass side kick panel and look for a wire to the white/purple wire and check that with a meter or light to see if it's kick out power. There is a possibility they used the negative trigger through a resister and that would be located behind the headlight switch. That will at least let you know and trace down the problem. Here is a link with that parking light info for yours. Hope this helps and let me know if you have more questions.

SOURCE: Simon 3 "System Low Battery" after 3 years use

I install these panels.  For the low battery message to clear you need to power the system down completely.  To do this you need to unplug the battery and also unplug the transformer plugged into an electrical outlet.  When you power the system back up, you need to first plug in the battery leads.  Then the transformer.

We have a Direct Alarm Supplies home Networx NX 16 security system installed in our home after we have a power blackout & the power comes back on the alarm goes off. Is this normal or how to fix


If you have had the system for some while, its internal battery eventually looses full charge by constantly being charged by the system. When you loose power the alarm will try to resort to the battery that obviously can handle the job no longer and forces the system to alarm. Recommend that you replace the battery on a regular basis around 12 / 24 months. Otherwise may be a configuration of your system that identifies power loss as a setting.

I just bought a 2003 road king classic and can not set the alarm. Can you tell the procedure?


Arming: Hold Fob button down until signals flash twice. The 'key' lamp on
the speedo will Blink to indicate the system is armed. If auto arming is
enabled, the key lamp will Stay continuously lit for 30 seconds after the ignition is turned off, then the system Will arm itself.

Disarming: 'Double-click' the Fob, the signals will flash once and the key lamp will stop flashing. If the Fob is lost or not working, the system can be disabled by entering the passcode. Without setting off the alarm, get the ignition switch to accessory, hold down both left and Right signal switches until the key lamp flashes rapidly, enter the first digit on the left And use the right as an 'enter' key, enter all five digits of the passcode and the system will Disarm, if you screw up, the alarm will activate and you will have to wait ten minutes.

Transport Mode: Allows the system to be armed with the motion sensors disabled for service, Trailering, etc. Turn the ignition switch on, arm with the Fob, turn the ignition off and Arm once again with the Fob. Signals will flash 3 times to confirm
arming, All other functions of the alarm system require entering the configuration mode. This is done by Disarming the system, run/stop switch in stop, flip the ignition switch on/off/on/off/on Then push the left signal button
twice. If power was disturbed to the alarm module, The sequence may have to be repeated to get into configuration mode. The system will respond by flashing out the module type code.
(1-TSM, 2-TSSM dom, 3-TSSM hdi)
Now that you are in the config mode, you can do the following.....

- To assign the Fobs, push the right once (one flash) then the left once (two flashes)
Then hold down the Fob button until the system recognizes it. Hold down the second
Fob until the system recognizes it. Both Fobs must be assigned at the same time.

- To assign a passcode, use the fob to send a disarm command, signal will flash once
To indicate the first digit, push the left signal button and the key light will flash out the Value of the first digit. Pushing the left button will advance the value up through 9 and Will start over at 1. When done setting the first digit, double click the fob again and The signals will flash twice to indicate the second digit, continue on through all five digits. Turn ignition off to exit.

- To adjust the sensitivity, use the fob to send an arm command (one flash) then push the Left signal button once. The signals will flash out the current setting, 1-4, push the left Button to advance the setting, turn ignition off to exit.

- To extract system trouble codes, press the right signal button three times,
pausing between Each press for the system to flash once, twice, and three times
respectively. Press the left signal button once and they signals will flash out two digit
codes. Press and hold the left button to clear all codes from memory, otherwise
turn ign off to exit.

- To enable auto arming, use the fob to arm the system twice, and press the
left button once. The system will flash the setting code, 1-disabled, 2-enabled. Press the left button to change The setting, turn ignition off to exit.

- To adjust between Sidecar mode and normal mode, push the right button
twice quickly, Then the left button once and the signal will flash out the current setting, 1-normal, 2-sidecar. Press the left button to change the setting, then turn the
ignition off to exit.

- To adjust the length of time delay before going into storage mode, use the fob to send an Arm command three times, then push the left button, the signal will flash out the current setting. 1-30 days, 2-60 days, 3-90 days, 4-disabled. Use the left
button to advance the setting and turn the ignition off to exit.

I have the Caddx NX-6 alarm system. Problem: Alarm system will not arm when entering the 4 digit code. Symptom: I have all doors/windows/zones closed. LED displays READY. I press the code and get 3...


If the power was out for 5 hours and the control panel still shows 'low battery', it's probably time to replace the battery for the control panel. However, this shouldn't keep the alarm panel from arming up. I would first try to re-start the control panel by removing the power and battery connection for a few seconds and plugging it back in. After that, it would be a good idea to re-enroll all of your attached sensors, etc. by entering into programming mode and exiting. Press * 8 + {go code} then just press exit. The default 'go' code is 9713. After about 15 seconds, the panel will have auto-enrolled each attached device. Try arming and disarming the panel. Be careful of setting off the alarm, as your monitoring station may dispatch police, etc. in the event of alarm. This is why having a certified alarm installer do this work is a good idea, as they can put your account with the monitoring station on 'test' so alarm signals are recorded for testing purposes but are not acted upon.

I need to disable my alarm on a 1997 bmw 528i.


Now im not sure since the manual says your model has the same alarm system as the 328i and on the 328i you can remove the module to disable by doing the following. you can unplug the control module. It is located under the glove box. Climb under the dash on the passenger side and remove a few screws on the trim panel under the glove box. Theres a black control module with a green connector. There should be a lock tab on the connector. press the lock tab and pull out the connector. The alarm should now be disabled. But if it has the special transponder key this may not work.
But if the only reason you want to disable it is because of the motion sensor setting of the alarm for no reason there is a solution for this. To disable the motion sensor, hit the lock button to arm, then hit lock button again within four seconds to disable motion sensor. Red light on rearview mirror should flash four times, then pause, then start flashing on regular intervals. this is most likely the reason if your having the issue where the alarm goes off every 20 minutes.
If you want to completely remove it below is a wiring diagram taken from the manual for you alarm system.

96 camero wont crank alarm ingaged


Hi


Thanks for using FixYa. The antitheft system in your car is controlled by a computer. Scanning the computer will give you some idea of what has failed. It is an integral part of your car and cannot be disconnected. If your alarm goes off constantly or does not armed by it:

Does the alarm arm and disarm properly? If it does proceed, if it doesn't, then have it checked by your installer.

1. Check and make sure your dome light is not staying on. If it is make sure all doors are closed and/or the dome light switch is not turned on.
2. Check your sensor. Make sure they are not too sensitive. They can cause false alarm and also cause the system not to arm by itself.
3. The alarm current sensing might be detecting voltage drop from the battery of the car or current draw from equipment (maybe left on).



Please do accept the solution if the issue is resolved or else revert for further assistance.


Thanks

Window Vista problem??


If you receive this error message or encounter difficulties when attempting to launch Pro Tools using Windows Vista disabling DEP may solve the problem.

This option disables "Data Execution Prevention", a feature of Windows that can sometimes cause errors. This won’t harm anything, but also isn’t always necessary.

How to Disable DEP:

1. Click "Start"
2. Click "All Programs"
3. Click "Accessories"
4. Right Click on "Command Prompt"
5. Left click on "Run as Administrator"
6. Click the Allow button if it asks you for permission
7. Type or copy and paste this into the command prompt window:

bcdedit.exe /set {current} nx AlwaysOff


8. Hit enter and you should see the confirmation: Operation Completed Successfully
9. Reboot and DEP should be off.

If you would like to re-enable DEP enter the following into the command prompt window:
bcdedit.exe /set {current} nx AlwaysOn

Hit enter and you should see the confirmation: Operation Completed Successfully. After restarting the computer, DEP will be re-enabled.

How can I reset my Factory Alarm on my Jeep it wont run


Alarm Module Reset Procedure
NOTE: This information applies to a Vehicle Theft Security System (VTSS) that was armed when the battery was disconnected and reconnected.
When the armed VTSS senses that the battery has been disconnected and reconnected, it enters its power-up mode. In the power-up mode the alarm system remains armed following a battery failure or disconnect. If the VTSS was armed prior to a battery disconnect or failure, the system will have to be actively or passively disarmed following a battery reconnection.
The power-up mode will also apply if the battery goes dead while the system is armed and battery jump-starting is attempted. The engine no-run feature will prevent the engine from starting until the alarm system has been actively or passively disarmed.
Passive disarming of the Vehicle Theft Security System (VTSS) occurs when the vehicle is unlocked using the key to unlock either front door or the lift gate. Active disarming of the VTSS occurs when the vehicle is unlocked by depressing the Unlock button of the Remote Keyless Entry (RKE) transmitter.
Once the alarm has been activated (horn sounding, lights flashing, and the engine no-run feature), either disarming method will deactivate the alarm.
Depressing the Panic button (if equipped) on the RKE transmitter will also disarm the VTSS, but the horn will sound and the lights will flash for about three minutes as part of the Panic feature. The horn and lights can be stopped by pressing any of the RKE transmitter's buttons or driving the vehicle above 15 mph.
