First of all, thank you. I followed the advice above. Yes there is a toggle switch next to the hood release. I also lost my remote for the alarm and when I replaced the battery the alarm went off. I followed the advice as soon as I hook up the battery, with the key in the ignition (ON) setting I flip the toggle switch a few times. This enabled to reset the alarm and I was able to start the car.
The brain for the alarm is under the driver seat just disconect it you should be good!
Start by replacing the battery in the remote.
If you know for sure that the alarm is functioning correctly, but the key-fob doesn't operate - either the fob is faulty or the battery is flat. Replace the battery - if the fob operates the alarm, then the battery was flat. If the alarm still doesn't operate, then the fob is faulty. You can always test the battery with a multimeter - although you may have to dismantle the remote to get at the battery !
I put in a new battery and I was unable to start the car; I am wondering if this is due to the fact that I disconnected the alarm some time ago. This is the first time I've taken the battery out since I disconnected the alarm.
sounds like the battery short-circuited.
Lock and unlock the driver door with the remote if the alarm is on because of a disconnected battery.
how do you reset alarm after rplacing the battery on 1999 toyota solara
Im not sure if you're talking about remote starters or alarms, but the alarm light did pop on when I changed the battery in my 95 Jeep GC Laredo. All I had to do was lock and unlock the doors a few times to reset the system.
the factory alarm is turned on and off by the drivers door-key-switch....or with the factory remote if you have one...unlocking the door with the key turns off the alarm...:)
An alarm remote is a remote control for an alarm system. A remote alarm is an alarm that rings somewhere far away from whatever set off the alarm.
when you hook up the battery and the alarm goes off hit the unlock button on your door lock remote.
EBay. Or I have a couple of extra ones
replace the remote
how or where can i purchase a new auto mate remote contrl for my 2001 toyota sequoia
Affirmative. You must find out which fuse controls the alarm and remove it prior to reinstalling or re-connecting the battery. Have your remote handy when replacing the fuse as the alarm will go off!
some car alarms have a backup battery in them. thses batteries if worn out can stop the alarm working.also sometimes the battery in the remote needs replacing to work
You have to turn the keys into the ignition on the vehicle. That's how i found out to stop it. It is due to your battery sending different voltage to the car which sents off the alarm. I never tried this though there is a little switch that flips to the left and the right close to the battery. It has wired leading to the battery so it could possible kill the alarm. Oh and if your alarm is going off that means your battery is either busted or if its new that means your alternator is. That's how i fixed mine.
I have a 1995 Toyota Paseo I changed the battery on the car and buitl in alarm would not let me start the car it flashed light and kept buzzing had to undo battery.. Does anybody know how to diable the built in alrm system?? Try putting the key into the driver's door lock and turning the keu to the extreme left then right. Some cars have this and the owner never even knew that they had an alarm system.
There is usually a manual disarm under the dash. Put the key in to the on position and then push the button for 3 to 6 seconds.
I had a problem too when I removed the battery from my Mentor's remote . Do the following ,sit inside the car , remove the remote battery , wait for 1 minute , replace the remote battery when doing so you will see that the remote light is on ! If the light is not on try again ! Now press and hold the lock button on the remote until you hesar the doors lock . Your remote is now programed .
You would disconnect the battery terminals.
if you did disconnect the alarm, it wouldn't let you start the car because of the immboliser
im guessing that your talking about the alarm/keyless remote. You will find that you have to get closer and closer to the car to be able to unlock it. You should replace the battery when you have to be within about 10ft from the car.
Take it to Wal*Mart, they can change it at the watch (jewelry) counter.
