How to Disable Car Alarm

How to Disable Car Alarm


one, two, three, four! Rev up your engines! It’s time for the Scotty Kilmer Channel today I’m
going to show you how to fix a car where the burglar alarm just keeps going off
and won’t let the car start now sometimes it’s as easy as going onto the
steering column finding this little switch and flipping it, try to start
it but now it still won’t start but at least the horn stopped beeping so we
know we’re on the right track it’s something to do with the alarm system so
while we’ll unbolt this lower panel and look inside at the wiring off we go and we
can see under here that somebody is wired and aftermarket alarm system so
basically we’re just going to disconnect this aftermarket alarm they often break
well a cold front just blew through so now I got a coat on and we’ll get back
to fixing the stupid alarm now these add-on alarm systems are basically patch
on this particular one the Toyota ignition feed that comes from the ignition
plugs into this alarm system then it goes through all the wiring in the
computers and comes back on this plug that plugs back into the Toyota original
system and on this car here’s the original piece coming from the ignition
switch back here so we’ll unplug that from the stupid alarm system and the
other end of the alarm system will unplug that then we’ll get the original
part from the Toyota ignition system and plug it back into the ignition switch
plug and it set the way it originally was the power goes from the ignition
switch through the electrical system and bypasses the alarm then you can just
disconnect the alarm wiring and a little alarm computer and take it out of the
car now in some cases the alarm systems will also be spliced into different
sections of your car’s wiring if that’s the case where the two wires from the
alarm are spliced into your car’s wiring you would just cut those wires off and
then inside your car the wires that were cut off they’re always color-coded so if
it’s pink to pink you would then just splice those two pink wires of the
original wiring harness back together and seal them and that’s
why wires are color coded because otherwise you’d have all these worries
you wouldn’t know what goes where but hey they’re all color coded so if it’s
spliced into a wire that’s green with a white stripe you just look for the other
wire that’s green with a white stripe and then splice them back together after
you disconnect the wiring alarm system and before you put the dash back
together let’s see if it starts success so if your car’s burglar alarm
goes bonkers and you can’t drive it anymore now you know what you can do
about it and remember if you’ve got any car questions just visit the Scotty
Kilmer channel and I’ll answer them as soon as I get back from the asylum

  2. Scotty, I have a 1995 Chrysler LeBaron Convertible. I left the lights on and drained the battery. My manual says to
    disarm the car's alarm, I must lock and then unlock the driver or passenger doors, so as to disengage the car alarm.
    Well I had a friend jump the battery and we got it ready to start. It only stayed running for a short time. The alarm
    is doing what it is supposed to be doing! But….I can't seem to turn it off. I don't have a key fob (with panic button, etc.) just a regular old key. Advice? I am thinking of towing it to the Chrysler dealership to have them remove it…or?? any low cost solutions? Chrysler Customer Care said remove the #11 fuse ( I did) and also undo the battery cables ….I did…nothing will disarm it and my car will not start….Looking forward to your reply!

  3. That's a camera in your video I see. I have one just like it. I find them to be excellent cars. And I have that issue with my Camry I'll have to try it out

  4. Have a problem with my 03 Honda Accord EX but I use an aftermarket alarm. I want to disable the factory alarm but I don't have a wiring diagram to what to actually disconnect. Any help you can offer? Thanks.

  5. Do you want to use mobile to operate your car? you can mobile start stop ,and can also connect bluetooth to operate app ,welcome to visit out website: www.szcardot.com    ,thanks

  6. i has un question for you my car subaru forester it has the security alarm on and i dont now how disasemble it. thank you jose

  7. Thanks a lot i am from mexico and i just love your videos. you scream a lot but thats ok. i like your videos. it has thought me a lot. i am a mechanic.

  8. How do you disable an alarm in a 2006 Dodge Durango? Key fob does not work, lights flash and horn blows. I did disconnect the horn.

  9. 05 6.0 powerstroke f350. Think alarm is engaged or enabled.scanner Can't connect to pcm, no wires chafed, no blown fuses or relays but has an after market alarm. You can't hear injectors Buzz or fuel pump sound off when you turn the key. Could alarm be the culprit

  10. scotty, but is there a way to disable stock car alarm systems, like in Volvo of '99, or '05 era? Apparently very difficult, if not impossible.

  11. What a coincidence. A family member has the same Camry (or general design at least) and the same alarm problem.

  12. Need help .Isuzu rodeo wont start. Alarm system shut down. Key wont work . No power going to starter motor.

  13. Any suggestions on my issue? 2000 Mustang, bought in 1999. Got aftermarket alarm shortly after vehicle purchase. Last evening, alarm starts going off on its own. Disarm, and reset alarm, and couple of minutes later, it goes off again. This happened several times. Couple of weeks ago, I noticed lights were not flashing when arming and disarming alarm, but everything was fine. Battery is fine, according to scan at O'Reilly's (twice in this past week, including last night). Car still starts, and everything else works. Just alarm goes off for no reason.

    Got home from O'Reilly's last night, and alarm was quiet all night. Today, went to store, and alarm went off again while I was in the store. Shut it off, and disarmed and re-armed it, then it went off again. Not sure what to do. Don't know which fuse might be for alarm, and don't know how to find correct wires for alarm. It does have a kill switch, but it is so hard to find, that I've never even used it. Too much hassle. The guy put it way up under the dash somewhere when he installed it.

    Any helpful advice would be appreciated. Thank you!

  14. Hey Scotty you probably won’t see this but I have a problem that whenever I unlock my truck with the key the alarm goes off and won’t shut off until I start it up how can I fix this ?

  15. Hey Scotty great vids as always. Long time subscriber here. So I disabled my cheap after market car alarm cuz I lost the remote and I unplugged the red n white wire in the fuse box under the steering wheel which was for the car alarm in a 97 civic now I wanna use the alarm again. So I’m not to sure what the original set up was so I replugged the red to the starter signal spot n the white to the radio spot but now the alarm is turn off when the car turn off. The alarm is activated only when the car is on hahah please help. I’m not auto savvy at all. Been googling and no one showing me any info on it. Thanks

  17. Hey Scotty. I have a 2000 Dodge Ram 1500 4×4. Recently the alarm that I didn't know I had started going off and I can't start the truck. I looked for some sort of bypass button, but I can't find it. Do you have any suggestions?

Even when trying to start it only cranks and at this point im puzzle, replace fuel pump, starter all relays and fuses, it all started from replacing new battery please help

  25. Interesting video.

    I have a question but it's about the opposite process.

    I have a Renault Megane (Keyless Go)/and I would like to install an alarm on it.

    Question is:
    Can I install an after market alarm in my car and trigger it ONLY via my original car key?

    What I want is, when I lock the car with my factory car key, the alarm should be activated, and deactivated when the car is unlocked.
    So that I can get rid of the stupid cheap remote provided by the alarm manufacturer.

    Is that possible?

    Would be glad if anyone could help.

  26. I used to install these in the early 2ks and to install the starter kill switch we actually did cut the starter wire and run it to the alarm brain for the starter kill feature to work properly. The old dei alarms only came with a valet switch and did not have a starter kill switch. Also it is pretty dumb to have an alarm that you flip a switch to turn it off.

  27. My car have a code alarm and it will not start unless I enter the code but my button broke off and I can't push the numbers that I need to push to actually get the car started help plz

I also can send the pictures from under my dash thank you so incredibly much

  41. Can someone tell me of one instance where a car alarm prevented even one car from being stolen? Personally, I think they were put there to deter amateurs like me to tinker with my car.

  42. Hey there Scotty. I really like watching your videos and they help me so much. I have a question. I bought a Hyundai Tiburon 2.ol 2004. It had a breathalyzer which I took out,and the emmo bypass transponder after market but the car icon with the key in it, (security light) flashes five times.and it doesn't start. The car was sitting for four years too. I hooked up all the wiring back the it supposed to be. Maybe it was sitting too long???

  46. Hey Scotty thanks for all the great videos. I have a question for you. My son has a 1999 Nissan Maxima and the security system has locked him out. He doesn't have much cash to replace the key and get it reprogrammed from the dealership. I know there's after market keys for around $90 bucks. But my question is can he just disable the security system and use the old key? Right now the security red light keeps blinking. Thanks for your help.

  47. Thanks. I'll remove the Clifford ignition lock from my 1997 Toyota Camry if it looks straightforward like your video. Yesterday 3:40 pm I parked in the no parking at the Canadian Tire front door to load a large heavy lot of tools & shelves I bought because it was raining like a monsoon in the outdoor parking lot and then the Clifford fob clicker wouldn't turn off the flashing red light and let me start the car. Back in for a new fob clicker battery & still no joy. At 5 pm I'd agreed to pay a towing company $306 to tow 77 km home and popped out for one last try and it worked after failing the same try for more than an hour, so I dodged a $306 cost bullet. I was frantic and running around in that lousy weather like a chicken with its head cut off before dark fell and every place was closed for the night. The car must be worth all of $500 but it usually does the job for me. If somebody got in & stole my groceries & tools they are worth more than the Toyota so they might as well take that too. I want that ignition lock thing out of it. I want maximum simplicity and reliability and minimum gadgets now.

  48. Sir How to mute lock and unlock sound in Volkswagen vento? Pressing and holding the lock and unlock button procedure is ain’t working.

  49. Great video. Penny for your thoughts on my particular alarm issue. Just bought a Ford Escape Hybrid. Found out after purchasing that the car has one of those dealer-installed KARR systems that was disabled after I didn’t buy the “premium alarm package” during the financing part of the sale. All the guts of the system are still there though, and I’m wondering if it’s worth my time to unbolt the panel and try to remove it. Or, should I just leave it alone?

  50. I have a 2001 Hyundai Elantra and my doors keep locking by themselves and now my alarm keep going off how do I reset it or do away with it my car won’t start at all won’t even turn over thank you

  51. Got a 2002 crown vic the dash alarm light blinks fast and wount crank to start and when put on run and manualy crank car wount run where is the alarm locared or how to reset for the crown vic ill apreciate it thanks
