Question about Cars & Trucks

3 Answers

Can't disarm my car alarm, have tried spare key fob as well as my normal one. Had battery checked a month ago for my original key fob. Any suggestions!

Had noticed alarm wasn't responding quickly when i used the fob for putting the alarm on and off in the last few months. Both batteries can't be dead, can they? Should i put key in lock and press the fob alarm off button, this has been suggested to me to try?

Use your key to turn off alarm --when you enter vehicle with key you have a few seconds before alarm goes off to put key in ignition and turn on or start vehicle and yes both batteries can be bad

Year make and model helps. Codes also. Yes batteries on both FOB's could be bad. Fob's can be checked for frequency and battery life. Different cars have different security set ups. I know a few, but I have the scanner to read codes and fix the problem. I also have the scanner to read the FOB's.

Yes you need to have a dealer test the system for fault codes.

01 Xterra dead battery. Tried jump, when I turn key alarm goes off blocks starting. Fobs wont disable/unlock. Only gets power to anti-theft. *Alarm doesnt go off opening door only turning key to start


You could try disconnecting battery, leaving overnight and then inserting ignition key and switching on before reconnecting the battery.

It has sometimes worked for me but in reality it seems you probably have an alarm immobiliser fault you need specialist help with.

What's a 99.5 Jetta?

Anyway, there should be a button battery located in the key fob. Swap that out and you may be able to use it like normal. Another option is for your to try disconnecting the battery. There is a chance this will reset your alarm and you can use your car as normal. Or the alarm will just go off. These things are finicky.

depending on the type of security system, it is sometimes necessary to re-sync the keyfob to the car after a flat battery on the car or the fob.
this is normally just a matter of turning the key to the IGN position and pressing the button on the key fob. you may have to hold the button for a second or two but this will normally re-sync the system.

if it does not work then you will have to sent more detailed information on the security system. ie factory fitted or aftermarket system with make and type (normally found on the siren unit under the bonnet.

hope this helps

I don't see where you have any choice but to unlock the doors with your key. If your fobs have good batteries, then the problem is with the alarm system, which can't be accessed until you unlock the doors. I'm not sure what the procedure is on your particular alarm, but with most alarms, you disarm the system by first turning the key in the door lock to the left and then to the right to unlock the door. Turning the key to the left first, disarms the system. Some aftermarket alarms will have a button hidden under the driver side dash that will disarm the alarm.

Find the alarm and disconnect it, or locate the fuse to the alarm and remove it. Then you can charge the battery without all the noise. Once the battery is charged, hook the alarm up and disarm it with the remote.

Alarm problems


You probably need to replace the battery in the key fob. Even if the fob has a little red light that comes on, the battery could be low enough to not disarm your alarm. That little red light only needs a minimal amount of battery power to light up. Try a Radio Shack store and they will most likely hand you a screwdriver to pry off the back or remove the screw. Once it is open they should have the battery you need. Should be about 6 bucks +/- depending on your location.
