1995 Ford Explorer: battery dead..jump start..The car alarm..disengage

Resolved Question:

1995 Ford Explorer - Lights left on so battery dead. Tried to jump start & let battery charge for a little bit. The car alarm will not disengage to allow us to try to start the car. The code will unlock the door, but the car alarm sounds when we try to start the car. Is there anything special we need to do to disengage the car alarm after the battery has gone dead? Or do we just need to charge battery longer or buy a new battery to have the alarm have enough juice to disengage.

Just wondering if there is something different & special we need to do to allow car alarm to disengage to try to start the car again?

HI, Welcome to Just Answer!


Buy a new battery. Remove old battery. Turn ignition key to the "on" position and leave it there while you connect the new battery. Start car.


With the key being on when you connect the battery the computer knows its OK to start.
