I bought this car used, and the seller didn't have the remote for the alarm. It hasn't been a problem till I had to replace the battery. Now as soon as I connect the battery cables, the alarm goes off. I have tried to start the car to no avail. I have tried using the key in the door to lock / unlock the doors many times... Is it possible to reset the alarm without the remote? I'm guessing that this is the factory alarm...

Re: new battery, can't reset alarm
Remove the alarm,their might be a passive switch on the alarm to turn it off with a special key,if you dont have the key break the lock so you can turn it off or try to open case of alarm and look at wires and then dertimine which ones to join or break,every alarm inside is different so you will have to work it out.

Take the positive lead off the battery. Touch the battery with the lead on and off for about five to seven times. This should reset the alarm. Reconnect the positive lead and using the remote control for the vehicle alarm arm and disarm the alarm once before operating as normal.
This is how to reset the alarm
Roll up all windows exit the car lock all doors with the remote, then wait ten minutes, unlock the door using the key, that will reset the alarm.
without remote I found this, have no idea if it will work, but worth a try!!
just connect the terminals,and wait till the alarm stops(30secs)then UNLOCK/HOLD KEY OVER 30 secs,windows go down.then lock/hold key over,windows go up.then press remote unlock button for 30 secs,you have just reset the alarm system/central locking/window comfort facility.....has to be done EVERY time you disconnect battery........
The sounding alarm maybe a security system installed by in the truck. Disconnecting the battery will only temporarily solve your problem, but will resume once you reconnect the battery for electrical power.
You must find the keychain/remote of the security system and disable it. If you are unable to locate this, you can have it disconnected by a qualified automotive electrician.
Word of caution though, if you are using the keyless entry system with the security system, this will be disabled until you install a receiver with such function.
SOME OF THE REMOTES REQUIRE THAT THE KEY BE IN THE IGNITION, IN THE ON POSITION. TAKE THE BATTERY OUT AND WAIT 10 MINUTES. THEN PUT THE KEY IN THE IGNITION AND INSTALL THE BATTERY WHILE THE KEY IS TURNED TO THE ON POSITION. HOPE THIS HELPS YOU. PLEASE KEEP ME POSTED. THANKS FOR AN HONEST RATING AND FOR USING FIX-YA. GOOD LUCK
