To disarm the alarm without the remote control, just incase your remote/blip key doesn't work:
- unlock the doors with the key and enter the vehicle (this will start the alarm off)
- within 10 seconds of the alarm sounding, press and hold the ultrasonics override switch (to the right of the steering wheel) whilst turning on the ignition.
If necessary, repeat the procedure if the siren restarts (after 30 seconds)
I have to do this each time I disconnect and reconnect the battery.
To reconnect a disconnected battery without the alarm going off, simply put the key in the ignition and turn it to the "ignition on" position. Then connect your battery . Dead easy and peaceful too! Oh! remember to remove your keys before you forget where you put them!!
i think you are having problem with your alternator its not charging your battery
A battery charging pad is something that you can just lay your devices on top of and it charges them without you having to plug them in. They are sold at Wal-Mart.
If the light remains on then the system still isn't charging as it should. Check the plug on the alternator and also that the wires to the alt have a good connection.
"Bubbling" of Electrolyte in Vehicle Batteries While ChargingThat is usually caused by having the charging rate[Amperes (Amps)] set too high.
It means you are having a problem with the charging system. Have the alternator and battery checked. Good Luck!!!
You need to check if the ALTERNATOR is giving the correct output so as to charge the battery. By having a volt meter across the batery terminals one can then rev the engine and the voltage accross the battery should be about 13.8 volt indicating that the Alternator is charging the battery. If this 12 volt bateery voltage does not increase, this indicates a charging problem (mostly with the alternator either the brushes or one of the diodes in the alternator).
This could also be alternator problems as in a bad diode in the alternator.
"was having charging system problem so alternator was replaced now car keeps flooding and won`t fire.
It means the battery is not being charged or is being overcarged. Could be the drive belt loose, the battery getting old/having distorted plates. Could be the alternator not producing enough voltage/charging current, or, rarely, too much. Local tyre & battery centre can do a discharge test on the battery. A meter across the battery will show if battery charging properly. Make sure all the cable connections between the body, battery and engine are clean and secure.
Yes, a loose battery cable will prevent the alternator from charging the battery. The drain on the battery is not caused by the engine not running unless an accessory is left on. Most likely, the drain is caused by accessories (radio, lights, etc) while the engine is running due to the battery not receiving its charge from the alternator and then not having enough charge left to start the engine.
I disagree. I was having issues with my heater taking a long time to heat up. I had to have my battery replaced and my heater functioned normally after that.
i am having the same problem and i have replaced the battery and no luck now i am blowning the battery fuse and have a short somewhere
I believe it is for live 12v line for charging a trailer battery. Please check other sites having to do with trailers.
Battery light usually means alternator not charging. Most common solutions would be be a bad alternator, bad connection, or loose alternator belt. If the battery and alt test ok than check the connections to the alternator and battery.
Could be a few things such as the battery itself could be NG, or the vehicles charging system is not working properly, or you may have draw in the electrical system discharging the battery such as the glove compartment light stuck on. Start with having the battery tested at your local auto parts store.
Having same problem, bad computer had to repalce $150.00-$200.00 brand new
A charging voltage of 14.3 volts for a typical lead-acid 12 volt battery is reasonable. The "normal" voltage is 13.8, but anything in a range of 13.5 to 14.5 is OK, depending on temperature. If the battery is going dead over night after having been charged, the either the battery is bad or there is some load on the battery. To check for load, place an ammeter in series with one of the leads. There should be no or little current flow.
I may be having the same problem. I replaced the battery. The interior lights, siren, horn, radio all work, but the car will not turn-over when the ignition is turned. I am really interested in how to unlock the vehicle.
This particular battery is advertised as being very long-lived. If you are having problems getting it to hold a charge, it may be faulty and need to be replaced.
A lot of the time Chevy used aluminum battery cables in their cars,(in particular my 1980) I was continually having starting and battery problems until I replaced the cables with copper.
One of two reasons, it will blink if you have not set up the correct time, or because you are having battery problems. Apparently the battery helps keep the time on trip counter in memory. If you're battery is not holding a charge then your time and trip counter aren't stored. At least that was my problem. If it is a charging issue, check to make sure with a voltmeter that your ATV is charging, if it is then check to make sure you don't have any loose connections at your battery, if everything looks fine, than you probably need to get a new battery.
your alternator was never the problem. Its your battery and/or charging system. the reason the lights get brighter is because the car isn't getting the propper amount of energy from the battery and is having to directly draw off of the alternator. when the engine is rev'ed the alternator spins faster creating more current to charge the battery, witch is why the lights brighten at higher rpms.
A laptop that turns off when unplugged is having a problem with its battery. One possibility is that the battery can no longer hold a charge. That means the battery is dead. It is possible to buy a replacement battery. Also, there are companies that will "rebuild" your battery. Another possibility is that the charging circuitry in the computer is broke and can no longer charge your battery. Either of these problems can be a result of dropping the computer or the battery. There may be diagnostics in your computer BIOS software that can help determine the problem. Otherwise, replacing with a good battery will let you know if your charging circuitry is functioning. Your computer also has a small internal battery that helps maintain the time as well as other BIOS settings. If this battery runs down, it needs to be replaced. Replacing the battery involves opening up the laptop case, finding the battery. replacing it, and putting the laptop together. This should only be done by someone who knows what he/she is doing. These problems usually imply that the computer is quit old and probably should be replace with a newer model that does more capabilities and probably costs less.
You are having a problem with the charging system. It could be a failing alternator. Have your local auto parts store test the charging system to determine what the problem is for free. Don't ignore it, you may get stuck.
If it's a regular Duracell or Energizer battery, it's not recommended you charge them. Having said that, you could try using a NiCad charger, but DO NOT leave it unattended. If the battery is getting hotter than warm, stop charging it. Your best bet simply would be to buy rechargeable batteries and a charger. SUre, they cost more at first, but it's bice not having to throw batteries away.
