Try unlocking the vehicle with all the doors. If the VTA does not disarm, momentarily ground the LG/OR or DG/OR at the VTA module. If the vehicle is now disarmed, the problem is in the wiring to the key lock switches or all the switches are bad.
YES... try unlocking all of the doors manually.
ok th vta is behind the glove box ok thats funny cause i can hear it ticking behind the glove box when you say short the wire is their wire harness were the wire runs into the vta and it has to be spliced or is there a conecter that the wires runs into if so how do i short the vta out and will that solve the problem and while im taking the vta aloose can the keyless receiver module be replaced
No... the wire you want to ground at the module is the the LG/OR or DG/OR. You leave everything still connected and just tap into this wire. if you can gain access to the connector that goes into this module, just back probe this wire cavity.
I am not saying this will take care of your problem. We are in the testing stages right now. We need to see if this will disarm your alarm system.
That would be correct... I don't believe this is a permanent fix. THis is just a temporary solution to figure out the problem.
You can pierce the wire to ground it or just simply back probe the harness connector in the cavity with that wire.
SOrry for the miscommunication. I think it would be easier for us if we handled one question at a time.
I cannot give you an answer on if there i no temporary fix or not because we have not decided or diagnosed the problem as of yet... we don't know what is wrong.
Usually there is no a temporary fix for these things... there is usually no reset button... otherwise a car jacker would just hit the reset button and be on his way with your car.

GLad to hear it is disarmed!
I am not sure about unplugging the remote entry. I am not sure if this will cause a no start condition or not. You are just going to have to give it a try.
I honestly would inspect the wiring and the door lock before replacing anything. It could be something as simple as an open wire or all bad door locks.

ok i will exept the answer but answer me this if in fact it is the lock and not the wiring and the part can not be bought what could i do to bypass thisproblem
Sorry for the delay!
Depending on how the system works, you might be able to just connect these two wires together or short them to ground to give the module a signal. It would be the same signal from the door locks. Basically, you are just cheating or pretending that it is the door lock is being open with the key. You are just fooling the module. You are just rigging the system to make it look like the door locks are being unlocked. Does that make sense?
Ok.. here is the complete set if diagrams for your door locks. These are the wires I am talking about.
Sounds good.... Please let me know if you have any further questions...
Have a great day!
