Use remote to turn off alarm with all doors closed. the other is to have all doors closed and locked, then unlock from drivers door and turn key twice simutanously. Your third is with the ignition switch depending on what type of alarm it has. I.e., factory or aftermarket.

Sounds like a bad battery. If the battery is OK than lock and unlock your Toyota with your fob. If it is still dead than take the better terminal cables off and touch the negative and positive cables together while both are disconnected and away from battery terminals. Should reset your anti theft system. Connect the cables back and try to start. again. If no crank likely bad battery. If battery is OK but no crank then it is the starter.

The horn beeps over and over like an alarm


probably is the alarm being set off by a corrupted CPU program from connecting the leads incorrectly. When using jumper leads or jumper battery the positive lead is connected to the battery terminal first and the earth wire ( negative) is connected to the to the engine . NOT the battery. IT is also advisable to turn on the head lights These precautions prevent a power surge in the CPU that corrupts the program

Forget about the alarm . The problem is your trying to jump start a dead battery. Replace the battery and reset the cpu with a code reader and the problem should be solved.

You can probably pull the horn relay to kill the horn while you are working on the problem.
With the battery connected to a jumper, try locking and unlocking the driver's door with the key. If that works, make sure the battery gets charged before you unhook the jumper cables to keep the computer memory alive.

I have 2004 Honda Pilot and I started it with jumper and the alarm couldn't be stopped after I turn the engine off.


If the battery is dead when you jump it the alarm will sound. Pop the hood and put the jumper cables on first, then put the key in and start the car. this should turn the alarm off.

That is exactly what it is. You need to find out how to reset the program. Check your owner manual. It could have it in there. If not, you should be able to call your Kia dealership and they can give it to you. You will need all your info from the vehicle.

Battery died alarm keeps going off when i try to enter car or start it how do i diconnect the alarm


Hi,
You will have to have a charged battery firstly. If you have a key over-ride on the alarm siran housing turn it OFF. If you have jumper cables connect them to your vehicle (observing polarity) Negative jumper cable should be connected lastly ! When connected , operated the alarm blip as normal and you should be able to silence the alarm and start vehicle as normal. If the battery is in a weak condition it will drop a lot of voltage(while cranking) and reset the default setting on the alarm (ie ON) So good connections and good battery voltage. If it does go off , it'll be only for a few moments and it's your vehicle anyway so ! Good Luck

Keep the jumper cables on the car as the alarm goes off, take your ignition key and open & close the drivers door lock. This resets the alarm.
