pressed and released, nothing. pressed and held bluelight is till ssolid.
put in valet mode by: turned ignition key to on, pressed and held pbled switch until solid. chipping and alarm stopped.
I didn't have door open before. I went back out to car and blue LED was still on. That should indicate valet mode, I assume. This time I left door open, turn fob key on, pressed and released PBLED and blue light went off. Where I assume valet mode is off now.
Pressed lock button on alarm remote and nothing happens. Driver door open or closed nothing. I don't have a panic button on remote, just on the fob key.There is a button on bottom that has 1 / 2 which I don't really know what it's used for. It's a single button that goes side1 to side 2.
Alarm was installed in the last week of July 2010. Have 2 remotes and both would not work prior to talking to you. Just tried 2nd remote and no luck. I have not changed the batteries.
Keyfobs work fine. One new keyfob and new battery in other keyfob.
Thanks for help tonight. Goodnight
I watched video and alarm responded correctly but cannot communicate with both alarm remotes. Remotes seem to work since the red indicater light flashes fast every time a button is pushed.
Is there a possibility that the factory installed alarm system interfering? Before this problem the factory alarm activated with Pursuit alarm system.
1 chirp = lock
2 chirps = unlock driver door
3 chirps = unlock all doors and tailgate/trunk?
4 chirps = activates remote start?
Also, Led light flashes sames as chirps.
1 flash = 1 chirp, 2 = 2 chirp, 3 = 3, 4 = 4
then after 1 - 2 minutes, alarm chirps 4 times indicating timed out and deactivates programing.
It may be possible that I triggered manual override. The manual shows how to do it but doesn't say how to disengage override.
transmitters have part # XXXXX back. 095BPR
Found this online.
No - I wasn't able to get channel 1 - 2 programed to either remote.
Did not receive the paper serperately, but there is the same thing in back of manual. Although, It's not filled out.
Remote model/part # XXXXX XXXXX
I know I triggered or turned on the Manual override. I just don't understand why both remotes stopped working right after I started car using remote start. I was only about 5 feet from the car.
Unless you have any idea as to why the happened. I guess I it needs to go to installer and have them check it out.
Wow - after I submitted my last reply - all your other replies came up.
Ok - i was thinking override - but in order to GET to override you only press the LED one time.
You indicated you pressed and held it until the LED came on solid.
Turn the ignition to ON
Turn the Ignition to OFF
Within 10 seconds - press and relase the LED 1x.
This should remove it from override if that is the issue.
Do you know where the brain is installed?
Perhaps with the slamming of doors - the antenna plug came loose?
Check at the antenna on the windshield.... and at the brain.
(See the diagram below)
The brain should be up in the dash cavity above the brake pedal.
You may need to remove a trim panel to access.
it keeps getting deeper :)
the information I have on the Journey - is that if the factory alarm is installed - it cannot be disarmed other than with the original remote.
So - somehow - the programmer was able to send a pulsed signal to the factory alarm module to get it to disarm.
At this point - it's going to be your best route - return to the original installer and have them troubleshoot.
If I hear anything of importance from the shop I once worked for (Has dealt with Audiovox forever) I will be sure to bass it on.
No luck on manual override.
I can see under dash but don't see the brain.There's a whole mess of wires that I don't feel comfortable messing with. It is possible since I live in Chicago with all the bumps and potholes. That's one reason I'm moving soon to southern illinios.
Only antenna I know of is on the tailgate. i have a Dodge Journey Crossover SUV.
I'll take it in to the shop, should still be under warrnty since it's only been 6 months ago on installation.
I want to thank you for all the help you've done. You taught me more than i knew before.
Sending this to make sure you get it, them accept answer to make sure you get the credit.
Thanks for that.
The antenna should be glass mounted (on the front windshield)
Inside or outside? I never saw anything that looked like the antenna at all.
Ok Thank's, could it have been installed outside?
I'm going out to dinner with my brother so I won't be able to answer right away.
I'm definitely taking to the dealership. Will try to send message on what they determine.
Again, Thank's for your help.
