Will this take care of my remote alarm lock as well?
I have a 1994 Ford Mustang. It is equipped with a viper car alarm and keyless lock. It isn’t working anymore since I replaced the battery on my car. What can I do? Or what did I do to make it not work? And how can I make it work again?
Well try the reset process I sent you. Check the batteries in the remote and then tell me exactly what it does and does not do
I tried what you said and got no response. The car alarm doesn’t even flash at all. And I replaced the battery in the keyless remote as well. I also checked all the fuses they were all fine. And still got nothing from alarm. Now what?
It's going to get difficult from here. You need to find the alarm module that is probably under the dash on the driver’s side. Look for in line fuse holders, one of those may have burnt out. I cannot help you much further, every alarm system is just a tad bit different and I do not have the wiring diagrams for them. I would suggest taking it to an alarm dealer if you do not find any fuses blown or wires disconnected.
