Now my car will start but only run for a few seconds, I replaced the batteries with new ones, but factory installed alarm/anti-theft system is not letting me drive my car. Please help. I need to get to work. Signed Desperate in VA

I think all you need to do is reset you ECM,Disconnect your car's battery by removing the positive and negative cables. Use a wrench to remove the cables if necessary. Press and hold your horn for 30 seconds to drain any remaining electricity from the capacitor. Wait 15 minutes and reconnect your battery. it wont hurt to try!

pls vote.

Try removing the alarm system relay, some car alarm has also a fuse on the alarm that you can remove.
Many car alarms unlock by inserting and turning car key while you connect the battery.

SOURCE: 1997 Sebring starts, then stalls

You need to disarm the alarm, the 2 problems are related, the start and stall is caused by the fuel pump interupt function of the factory alarm, you triggered it when you replaced the battery, The reset procedure is in the owners manual.

Remote starter in valet mode Symptoms: Lock and Unlock buttons work as normal, but pressing Start does not produce any response from the vehicle.
Causes: Someone accidentally pressed the combination of buttons to put the car into valet mode, usually when the remote is in a purse or pocket. Also, many remote car starters will revert to valet mode when the vehicle is disconnected for service.
Hood Pin Has Broken or Failed Symptoms: Pressing Start results in several flashes of the parking lights but no start. If equipped, Lock and Unlock still function.
Cause: In most cases, the under-hood pin switch is broken or corroded.
Remote Control Loses Programming Symptoms: Pressing any button on the remote results in no response from vehicle.
Cause: It is rare, but does happen - in most cases, this is caused by a dead battery in the vehicle or the battery having been disconnected when being serviced.
Remote starters usually have some type of non-volatile memory to retain things like programming features and remote control codes. Like any "computer" device, sometimes they lose memory. When this happens, simply call the store that installed it for you. In some cases, they may be able to tell you how to reprogram it over the phone. Other times, you will have to return to the store for a technician to program it. In any case, this is rare with higher-end remote starters.
Remote is in Second-car Mode Symptoms: Pressing any button on the remote results in no response from vehicle.
Causes: A combination of buttons were accidentally pressed, which put the remote in second-car mode.
Again, this is very rare, but happens from time to time. Many remote car starter remote controls have the ability to start two vehicles. If the remote is accidentally placed into second-car mode, it will not start or operate vehicle #1.
Simply read your owner's manual or call your installer for directions on how to revert the remote back to car #1.

I dropped my keys/fob now my car won't start or turn over. is there a chip? I put it back together but not snapping together right


can you tell if it had battery? That would be for the remote aspect of it. but normally it should still work even missing that as far as the car is concerned

2003 Dodge Grand Caravan. Remote is broken. Key won't shut off alarm system. What do I Do??


Try changing the battery inside the remote usually that solves the problem but otherwise u might also have broken or loose parts inside the remote from dropping it on the ground,or rubber gasket maybe in in perfectly, if none of those solutions work, it may need to be reprogrammed or replaced,from the dealership.
usually its the coin cell battery eg:2016,2032,etc
and u'll need a small flat precision screwdriver and some patience when opening it.

Try doing a re-learn on the remote. If you don't know how, go to "you tube" enter the model of remote and you'll most likely get the information you need to complete the task.

Hi,

My name is Ben and I'm your guru, i.e., mentor, an influential teacher or popular expert: a management guru. - origin from Sanskrit, 'weighty, grave', for today.

WARNING!

Unless you have shop technical manual,please don't even think about trying to disarm your anti-theft system because there is an easier solution. I'm assuming that you don't have the full Shop Service Manual. If you do, then you know that a shop manual costs at least $100.

So why did I say: Don't even think about it? Your anti-theft device is capable of causing problems that you don't want to deal with. If you have the dealer do the job, the cost can be prohibitive. The anti-theft device tells the on-board computer to shut off the fuel flow and to disengage the starter circuitry.

SOLUTION: Go on eBay and buy an anti-theft bypass module for $10-$20 depending on the year and make of your vehicle.

All the best

Ben

MY SON DROPPED MY REMOTE AND IT STOPED WORKING. i BOUGHT BATTERIES BUT IT STILL DOES NOT WORK


Buy a used remote on ebay, put new batteries in it, take it to a dealer and have them test the remote, if it is good have them teach your car to respond to it. it won't cost much and make your son pay for it.
