Question about 1998 Mercury Villager

1 Answer

Alarm Disconnect Having a problem getting my vehicle started. When connecting the battery, the alarm goes off....not unusual. Using the key in the ignition and turning it does not get beeping to stop. How can I completely disconnect the horn or alarm so I can diagnose the starting problem. Think it is the starter as no click when the key is turned.

You can't disconnect or bypass the alarm system. Think about it. It is there to stop exactly what you are trying to do.

All your symptoms are that of an anti-theft system that needs resetting.

Disconnect the battery overnight. Hold the two battery terminals together for 5 minutes. PUT THE KEY IN the IGNITION, but not turned on (this is the most important part). Connect the positive lead. Connect the Negative lead in one swift movement. Leave the car for 15 minutes to fully reset. The alarm should not be sounding at this time. If it is, you need an auto-electrician.

Changed battery in my 07 toyota tundra. when I connected the new battery, the alarm goes off. cannot get vehicle to crank or turn offthe alarm


You have upset the anti-theft system.

Disconnect the battery. Put a household bulb across the battery terminals for 3 minutes. Hold the battery leads together for 3 minutes. Leave the battery off for 1 hour. Put your key in the ignition, but not on. Connect the negative lead of the battery. Connect the positive lead in one go, bang and on. Leave the car for 15minutes to reset. Start the car normally.

Number 1 tip from a mechanic friend of mine. Maintain the power to the vehicle when changing batteries by using 2 lengths of wire or jump leads.

Car alarm preventing car from starting


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.

Charging my mercedies 2001 battery and the car alarm wont stop and i cant turn the key to try and start my car


put key in ignition turn to number 2 and press the fob buttons open close etc. see if that reset system. also if you charged the batter while on the vehicle you can only charge them with a tried and tested charger from mercedes as you can damage the engine management unit and the voltage control module fitted to the vehicle. failing that you will need to remove the negative lead on battery and leave off for an hour or so. and reconnect, the alarm will still go off until its internal battery goes flat ruf 30min or so. when reconnecting battery make sure the doors are all unlocked and boot is unlocked, you also will need the code for the radio and other units that can be in the vehicle from manufacture. if this does not work then you may need another unit to replace before the engine will start again as it has been damaged. when battery connected sit in the vehicle and turn ignition to number 2 and press fob to lock unlock doors then try to start engine if all goes well the engine and alam will not be a problem anymore

How do you turn off an alarm for a 2005 Saturn Ion


Disarming an Armed System/Silencing an Alarm
If system arming has been requested by the keyless entry transmitter, it must be disarmed.
Important: Using the power door unlock switch or manually unlocking the doors does not disable the CTD armed mode. Also, disconnecting the battery or pulling fuses does not disable the armed mode, since the BCM stores the CTD mode status in memory.
?€¢
To disarm the CTD system in arm pending mode, SECURITY indicator flashing and doors open, perform 1 of the following:


-
Press the UNLOCK button on the keyless entry transmitter.


-
Insert a valid key into the ignition and start the vehicle.


?€¢
To disarm the CTD system in the armed mode:


-
Press the UNLOCK button on the keyless entry transmitter.


-
Insert a valid key into the ignition and start the vehicle.


?€¢
To disarm the CTD system when activated, alarming mode.


-
Press the UNLOCK button on the keyless entry transmitter.


-
Insert a valid key into the ignition and start the vehicle.

Lost set of keys, alarm was on car locked. Found spare key only, it will open door, alarm goes off, but the key won't start engine. It will turn in ignition, but dead! It's a Chevy HHR 2006! HELP


Close the doors. Lock the doors using the buttons on the key fob. Use the fob to again unlock the doors. The key should then work the ignition. If this will not work, you will have to tow your vehicle to the dealer and buy a new key and/or fob and have it programmed to the vehicle.

I have a 2003 hyundai sonata and i dont have the remote for the stock alarm. My alarm keeps going off and my car wont start. I bought a new battery and even tried the key in the door still no luck.....


The 2003 Sonata is equipped with a 'starter KILL' burglar alarm system with disables the starting system (using a N/C 'contacts' configuration instead of a N/O contacts configuration). N/C=Normally closed, and N/O=Normally open contacts. When the alarm goes off with a MY Sonata, the only way to DISARM it is with the key fob (remote) originally programmed for it (unless you purchase a new remote & have it programmed for the vehicle at an authorized Hyundai Service Department). NOTE: So long as the keyless entry & burglar alarm system is functioning/operating normally, the alarm will keep going off and the STARTER KILL function will still prevent you from starting the vehicle. One option is left without purchasing a new remote and having it programmed.
1. When the alarm goes off, get into the vehicle and insert the ignition key into the ignition.
2. Turn the key to the 'RUN' position (NOT the ACC position) and wait for the alarm to STOP (usually about 3 to 5 minutes).
3. The engine should then start using the ignition key.

If this procedure doesn't work, the problem will need further diagnosis by a qualified/certified Hyundai Service Technician.

Hope this helps

My 2004 v6 ford explorer won't start new batery and new starter no luck wont even click ?


Did you check the start relay for voltage? Ohms reading?

If I remember correctly the circuit goes like this:
Key turns ignition switch which puts voltage to the start relay which engages the solenoid.
So if it isn't even clicking and your headlights seem to be working fine then it is either the ignition switch or the start solenoid coil.
On older Fords the start solenoid used to be remote mounted on a fender. I heard newer Ford vehicles had it integrated with the starter like GM does.
A quick visual inspection will tell you which and where you need to look.
You might check if there is a fuse for that as well.

I can't turn off the factory installed alarm on my 2005 Rav 4.


yeah. disconnect the battery, put the key in the ignition and turn it to the ON position. leave the driver's side door open, and reconnect the battery. the alarm will chirp a few times while you're putting the battery back on, but this SHOULD work.

you might as well go ahead and take the battery out of the remote for the alarm as well, to make sure its not setting your alarm off as well. you can replace the battery in the remote once the battery is reconnected in the vehicle. the remote might need to be reprogrammed if the alarm goes off again, otherwise its time to go to the toyota dealership!

!!WARNING!! make sure the key isnt in the position to START the vehicle, you just want the key ON. make sure that nothing else in the vehicle is on, and also, be VERY careful when reconnection the battery, as it will spark when it makes its connection. if you have been charging the batter a lot, make sure to give the battery time to cool down, because when car batteries get hot, they emit hydrogen, which is explosive. this IS a risky move, but is the only thing you can do, unless you either install a kill-switch or charge the battery and drive to the dealership while the alarm is going off. sometimes, when you start the vehicle, the alarm will stop, but im assuming this isnt your case.

Alarm goes off truck won't start.


sounds like you have an aftermarket alarm not factory most of these alarma are equipped with a starter interupt that will not vehicle start. when connecting the battery ist is normal for the alarm to sound some alarms may not sound if ignition is on while connecting battery, however this is not reccomended. after connecting battery and alarm sounds you should be able to turn it off with trasmitter, if you do not have one then you will need to put key in ignition turn it on and look under the dash for a valet switch or togle switch this may override the alarm and let car start if you cannot locate this you can alway locate the alarm box under dash and unplug it as last resort most alarm defaults will let the car start when this is done. hope this helps
