Lost remote to disable alarm on 2000 mercury villager how can i disable it and start my van

If you have the factory alarm system, you can put your key into either door and lock and unlock the door, that signals the computer to deativate the alarm. If you have an aftermarket alarm system installed, it will have to be removed and the wiring that the alarm ties into must be restored to factory design.

1999 Subaru legacy will not start

Check your terminal connections, if they are loose they will need to be inspected for breaks. If they are broken you will need to replace the connection. Make sure they are clean and free of corrosion.

Other possible Problems
If the car wont turn over your starter could be bad.
If it turns over but wont start it could be any number of these problems.
Coil Pack
Plug Wires
Spark Plugs
EBX (Engine Brain Box)
CBX (Chassis Brain Box)
Crank Sensor
Fuel Pump
Fuel Rail
Fuel Injector

Good luck
