Hi there. On quite a few of the Prestige systems, a quick press (whether arming or disarming) will activate the locks and trigger the audible chirp......but holding the button for 2+ seconds bypasses the audible chirp. Eliminating simple things first (without knowing which model alarm/remote you have), is it possible that the button is sticking down? The easy way to tell is that the locks operate immediately when the button is released. If you find you have released, but the locks seem slow, the sticking button is a distinct possibility. There are also options to silence the chirps on some systems. If you do not have the specific alarm owners manual handy, I'd suggest a quick google search will prove helpful. If you do find the manual, saving the document, or even just the text on the page and pasting it into a blank word doc will be handy for future reference. A printed copy for the vehicle glove box wouldn't be unreasonable either. Cheers,

SOURCE: Ford F150 Pickup 2005 power doors unlock but will not lock

I had almost the identical problem on my 2005 F150 FX4 Extended cab last weekend. The power door locks would not lock using the keypad, remotes, or door buttons. Almost all other functions worked correctly. The doors unlocked, the radio delay functioned, and the interior lights dimmed. When I used the remote the horn would beep twice indicating that a door was open even there was no message on the message center that a door was open. When I used the keypad or remote, I could hear a soft click from behind the seat. I think it was coming from the body security module or body security module - whatever Ford is calling it this year. I pulled the fuse for the Power Door Locks(BSM). As I removed it, I heard a soft click - sort of like a relay resetting. It may have come from the VSM/BSM. It may have possibly been a stuck actuator releasing. I don't think so. It wasn't that load. In any case, everything is functioning correctly now.

SOURCE: oven door won't unlock

I had this same issue and consulted the owner's manual. Once on self clean it takes up to 3-4 hours for it to automatically unlock. It is a built in safety feature of the oven.

SOURCE: 1993 Nissan Maxima SE Car Alarm freaks out, and other electrical

Im no professional but i did recently buy a 93 maxima and i have the same security alarm problem and my powered locks dont work at all. im taking off the door panel today to take a look and see if the alarm sensor is loose or damaged, if it is, ill probably just disconnect it. one thing i have noticed though is that when i hit the lock or unlock button, i hear a faint click from the dashboard area which im assuming is the solenoid on a transistor which would mean that the buttons work but the transistor isnt delivering power. Semi-Solution for Locks: Listen for very quiet click when you lock/unlock doors, if you hear it, uve got major work to do, if you dont, then take apart the door and check the switch connections. Semi-Solution for Alarm: take off the door panel and disconnect the sensor.

SOURCE: rear hatch will not unlock on my 05 Denali

Check the unlock mechanism for the hatch. These are controlled by an electrical motor pulling a cable. If the cable came loose you might or might not hear the click click that it makes. I would also check the fuses and relays related to the system. Usually if you can get the interior panel off all the innards are exposed. I would suggest pulling that panel off, then triggering the keyless remote and see if anything moves, that might pinpoint where it has gone bad.

SOURCE: 2006 BMW 323i Passnger Door lock will not lock / unlock w/ remote

Replace fuse 57 (15 amp) then disconnect battery and wait 30 to 45 minutes before reconnecting the battery.

My 2006 BMW 325I had the same problem with the door locks not responding. I checked all related fuses and found #57 (15 amp) was the only related fuse blown. I put in a new fuse and it still would not work. I then disconnected the battery for a while then once I reconnected the battery everything worked fine.

I believe I blew the fuse while repeatedly pushing the unlock button rapidly while walking across the parking lock to the car. I suggest only pushing the unlock button only once or twice.

How do I activate the alarm on my Dodge


The 4103 is not an alarm. It's a remote starter with keyless entry! Do you want the horn to sound when locking and unlocking? First, make sure that the horn wire was connected. Press and hold the lock button on the remote. That should activate the panic/car finder. The horn will begin to sound. Press and release the lock button to turn it off.

If the horn is connected and, you want said horn to sound when locking and unlocking, open door, turn ignition on then off, press and hold programming switch until the horn chirps once. Release programming button, press and release programming one time then, press and hold programming button. While holding the programming button press and release unlock button on remote. You should hear two chirps from the unit. Release programming button, turn ignition on to exit programming, Test system.

Autopage xt74 alarm in silent mode


The only reason that your alarm would not chirp when locking and unlocking the doors is that the system is in valet. A visual notification that the alarm is in valet mode is the LED light is on solid. If the LED is on solid and you wish to make the alarm active again, turn the ignition on then, press and hold the valet/programming switch for two seconds. The LED light will turn off.
If the LED light is not on solid then, the issue may be with siren itself.

Viper remote won't open door lcks


Does the remote diarm the alarm? Do you hear the " chirp chirp" when you press the unlock button on the remote? If not, then the remote is defective or needs to be reprogrammed to the alarm. If you do hear the " chirp chirp" but, the doors do not unlock, then the issue is with either the wiring from the alarm or the vehicles power locks. Did it work before? Do you have power door locks?

How to reprogram Python 4Button Remote 474P ?


I had the exact same thing happen with my 4-button 474p remote. WITHOUT REMOTE START the correct sequence is:

1. Enter car - Leave door open.

2. Turn key to "on" position.

3. Within 5 (five) seconds press the Valet button 7 times then hold down. (Programs to channel 7)

4. Watch alarm light - It should now flash 7 times.

5. While still holding down the Valet button - Press the "lock" button on the remote and release. Should get a "chirp"

6. Now release and repress the Valet button once, holding down. You'll get the "chirp". Release Valet button.

7. Turn key "off". Exit vehicle and test remote. All 4 buttons should now work.

I bought my car used with an aftermarket prestige alarm w/ remote start. Battery and alternator went bad. They have been replaced. The car will not turn on and alarm remote is not working.


Locate a black push button switch under the dash or near the drivers side kick panel (older model), or the alarm has a push button LED light(newer model) or the Valet switch is in the antenna(newest model). Turn the ignition on, press and release the switch one time. This should disarm the alarm.

For programming: turn ignition on, press and release the valet switch three times: you will hear one chirp from the alarm, press the lock button on the remote. Press and release the valet one time, you will hear two chirps from the alarm, press the unlock button on the remote. Repeat as necessary. Turn igniton off to exit programming. Test remote for proper functioning.

I need to re-program the remotes to my alarm. It is a prestige aps255a. Just to lock and unlock all the doors. To arm and unarm is already programmed.


Huh? Pressing the lock button arms the alarm AND locks the doors. Pressing the unlock button disarms the alarm AND unlocks the doors. If this is not happening either there is an issue with the wiring from the alarm to the car or, with the vehicle's door locks.

I bought a new Keyless remote for a 2007 Forester from a Subaru Dealer to replace an original one that went bad after 2 years. I have followed the directions in the owner's manual to program it, but can't...


IMPREZA: 2005, 2006, 2007 and
FORESTER: 2005, 2006, 2007, 2008
Check for Immobilizer key on Forester XT models only.
information is always subject to change and correction imp05keylessremote1.jpg
new remote for 2005 Imprezas.
This is not the same remote as the 05 Legacy/Outback remote which also has truck/gate release on the front and a red panic button on the back.
Lock: press Lock button for 2 seconds or so to lock car, and arm optional security system. The car with chirp once and turn signals flash for locked, 5 short chirps and signal flashes if any door is not fully closed. The dome light goes on for 15 seconds and ignition key ring (if present) will light for 30 seconds when unlocked.
Unlock: press unlock one time for driver's door, press again within 5 seconds to unlock all doors inkling rear gate (wagon). The system does not open the trunk.
Panic mode: press and hold lock button for approx. 3-4 seconds to activate Panic mode. I panic model the horn honks and turn signals flash until either the lock or unlock button is pushed again.
Finder mode: Press lock button 3 times within 5 seconds to activate Vehicle Finder mode. The horn will honk once and the turn signals will flash 3 times
Distance: works within approx. 30 feet depending on battery strength, nearby concrete walls and etc.
Audible Chirp On-Off: the system will chirp when locked or unlocked. To turn OFF the chirps, unlock the door and then push both lock and unlock buttons at the exact same time for 2+ seconds. There will be 2 chirps indicating the the audible is off. To turn the chirp back on, repeat the process and the system will chirp one time when it is back on.
Battery: as the battery ages it will only work as you get closer to the car. When a battery is replaced, the transmitter must be re-synchronized with the Keyless control unit. To synchronize, press the lock or unlock button 6 times.
Programming: 4 codes may be programmed.
Sit in driver's seat and unlock all doors. Open and close the driver's door
Turn the ignition key from LOCK to ON position 10 times within 15 seconds. Be sure to stop at both lock and on. The horn will HONK once to indicate transmitter programming mode is activated. Leave key in LOCK position and don't remove it from ignition.
You now have 45 seconds to complete the programming as below.
Open and close driver's door again.
Push either lock or unlock button on the remote you want to program. The horn will honk 2 times when successful.
To continue and program other remotes at the same time: open and close the driver's door and push lock or unlock on the remote. The driver's door must be opened and closed between each remote you want to program.
Done programming? remove the key from the ignition and the horn will honk 3 times.
DELETE old codes? Reprogram 4 times, it will overwrite old codes.
Alarm Security System: optional on all models. When locked there is one chirp (can be turned off, see above), the turn signals will flash and the red 'security' light will start to flash once every 2 seconds except for STi which flashes twice every 2 seconds.
There will be 5 chirps if a door, hood, and trunk or gate is not fully closed
You can also arm the system by using the power lock button on the driver or passenger door as you get out of the car and then closing the door behind you.
Disarm the system: push unlock for 2 seconds
Lost remote, alarm activated? When you can't use a remote to turn off the system: open the door with a key or try to start the car and the horn will start to honk. Turn the key on-off 3 times within 5 seconds and the alarm will go off and you can start the car. It's simple!
VALET mode: To set valet mode or just to disable the security alarm system: 1. unlock all doors 2. physically open the driver's door 3. hold the UNLOCK button on remote for 2+ seconds. The red 'security' light will then flash 2 times a second until the car is turned on.
System has been Tripped (except for STi): if you unlock the door with the remote and it chirps the signal light flash 4 times, the system has been triggered;
Identification mode: To find out what happened and why the system was triggered:
Open and drivers door, leave it open. Turn ignition key from LOCK to ON 2 times and then leave in LOCK position.
Tripped code: 1 security light flash: a door has been opened, 3 flashes when the impact sensor was triggered, 4 flashes when the ignition was messed with or battery disconnected
