In many cases you can either push the "Alarm" switch on your remote car door opener (If it has one) or use the door key to lock/unlock the drivers door. This will usually "reset" the alarm. TommyTrouble

Two thoughts: you may have put the battery in wrong (if it's not all the way in, they chirp) or you may have put in a dead battery.

One way to disarm many cars alarm is to use your key in the drivers door. (lock and then unlock using the key...with battery hooked up) hope it helps you, Adrien

check battery cables are connected correctly, and there not crimped under the battery.

This is because each time the battery is disconnected, the computer in the car loses power. When the new battery is hooked up, the computer system needs to be reset to stop the lights from blinking.

Disconnect negative cable first from old battery and connect it last when installing new battery.

the computer should reset itself after you reinstall a battery. :D

There's no set answer to that, it depends on the battery chemistry, how much the battery has been used since full, and what the battery is hooked up to. But basically, when new, every battery, when hooked up to a modest load, will have a tad more than the rated voltage - in this case 9 volts.

If the car has a bad battery the battery will not charge just becaus you put a new alternator in try raplacing the old battery.

Your alarm needs to be reset. Look in the manual for instructions. The alarm was probably arms when you changed the battery an now the alarm computer is thinking that it is being triggered by the ignition.

I have a Bradley Big Bird Talking Alarm clock and the clock works great. The alarm does not. I have read that the alarm works by the battery. I put a brand new battery in and turned the alarm hand to a desired hour but nothing happens. Any ideas? Regards Thad

Car alarm in Lexus ES300 started going off at random when car was parked, not running. I changed the key fob battery (flat watch battery) with a new battery and it fixed the problem.

If your alarm system beeps periodically, it may need a new battery. If you look inside the main control box you will find a 12 volt battery. If you switch this out with a new one your beeping problem should be solved.

Remove the negative cable first and when installing the new battery connect the negative last.

Installing a new battery in a Honda Shadow 600 is very easy to do. The battery is located in the seat area, behind the gas tank. Loosen the clamps that are holding the battery in place with a screwdriver. Then take the old battery out and put the new one in.

I have the same problem with a 1997 Chevy Van. The problem seems to be that GM states that a 50 milliamp draw will kill the battery, and that the alarm system is < 50 milliamp, but I can find out how much less. I have killed several batteries because of this. Now the trick is to put in a new battery. When you connect a new battery, the alarm goes off. To prevent this, with the new battery disconnected, turn the key in the ignition to ON. Make sure the door is closed, and then connect the battery. This prevents the alarm from going off. What I did was to install a battery disconnect switch that I use when the van is sitting for more than a week. Now after it has been sitting for awhile, I go out, put in the key, flip the battery switch, hop back in and the car starts.

remove the cable from the battery, follow it to the other end, ground or starter, reverse the same for installing a new one,

Disconnect the negative cable first and connect the same negative terminal last when installing the new battery.
