Question about Ford Edge

1 Answer

My avital car alarm/remote starter that was installed by Ford over a year ago is acting up. Every time I go to use the key pad it either makes a connection or does not syn up with the car. I have to use the stock key pad to unlock the doors which causes the alarm to sound. I can not get the alarm to go off. How do I reset the car alarm? It is not the battery on the key pad either b/c I have a spare which does the same thing and the spare is hardly in use.

Mazda 5. Why will it only start with the remote starter?

If you have the manual there should be a fault tree code to fix your problem.

Hello my name is Israel. I will try to help you out. I would first check to make sure it is not the alarm. You will need to get under the sterring column area and look for a black/yellow wire that is spliced. You will need to connect that wire back together. This black/yellow wire is for the starter. If the alarm is acting up and you spice this wire back together it should start. If the vehicle, after connecting this wire together, does not start then you probably have a starter problem. Hope this helps. Good Luck.

Remote Car Starter Installation Instructions can some tell how to install and which is good, but no security alarm

Remote car starters can be very tricky to install. If you have never installed a car alarm of starter before, then I would higly reccommend having it professionally done-it will be worth the headache you save. As for brands, anything from Directed Electronics ( Avital, Viper, Hornet, Clifford, etc) or from Omega Research and Development ( Excalibur, K-9, etc.)

Factory remote starter

I would suggest you obtain the install instructions from the dealer and check that it was wired into the system correctly. Another thought is that the remote needs to be programmed, that was a common issue when I worked for a Ford dealer.
