I have sent the information you have requested & have answered .
This is a factory installed alarm. As far as I know...I must follow a sequence to reset the alarm. I have done it before. I called Galpin Ford and a technician walked me thru the steps - this was a few years ago. The service center is closed today (Sunday) and only be open tomorrow.
They have a sequence of steps.
This is a factory installed alarm
There is NO "sequence" to DisArm a 1997 Ford Mustang "FACTORY" Alarm
It Arms when Locking the Door with Remote or Door Key SwitchIt DisArms when Unlocking the Door with Remote or Key Switch
nothing unusual about it
IF this is a Ford Dealer Installed Alarm, then it would be different.As I stated above;
You right. I think it was a dealer installed alarm.
I tried your suggestion...and it did not work.
As I said...I have done this before. Ford have a sequence for it.
did you try "both" of the procedures (exactly)?
Do you have a Remote?If so is there a Brand Name or Model Number on it?Is this the Alarm (siren) or Horn sounding?
I don't have a remote.
It is a Alarm (siren).
If it is a "add on" Alarm (Ford or Aftermarket)
Typically most will DisArm by the same procedure:
Disconnect Positive Battery CableOpen Driver Door & LEAVE OpenTurn Ignition Switch to On position & LEAVE On
If not, then there should be a "VALET" Switch located inside the carIt can be the LED, on the Alarm Antenna, under the Dash, in Glove Box, etc.If the Valet Switch is a Push Button Type:With Battery connectedTurn Ignition Switch ONPress & Hold Valet Switch for apprx 5 seconds to DisArm
PLEASE click ACCEPT so that I may get credit, thanks.
There is a on-off swith inside the car where you open the hood
If you are sure this Switch goes to the Alarm:
TRYTurn Key ONPush the Switch to Off PositionTurn Off Key Push Switch to On Position
Ok. I tried it. Did not work.
Turn key ON
Push switch to off position
Turn key OFF
Push switch to on position
sorry.............Not knowing the Brand & Model number of the Alarm puts me at a disadvantage & cannot help any further
If Dealer cannot help, follow wires from Switch or LED, which should go to the Alarm Module (brain). Should have a bunch of wires & plugsSee if there is a Brand & Model Number on the Module & post it back here
THANK YOUThanks for using J/a
Solution is great.........But does no good if the Brand & Model Number is XXXXX known...............
Thanks for the response
