purchased 1990 jaguar Xj6. need to know how to disconnect alarm syten, believe it may be cause of car not starting?
had live chat with Richard- checked fuel pump and crank sensor. thouhgt possibly alarm system could have shut car down. seller didn't provide alarm control
If you still need help with this, please provide info on Alarm
Brand, Model Number, etc., as it likely is not Factory
I believe it is factory!
My manual or info does not show "Factory Alarm" available for 1990There were some Dealer installed, but most were AftermarketIf it is a Horn sound, then it may be DealerIf it is Siren sound then it is Aftermarket
Molurch, I jut purchased xj6 never heard alarm; so hard to tell which it may be. any other clues? also do you think alarm system may have shut car down and not allowing it to start?
Lets check to see if there is an Alarm first:Ignition OnRoll down Driver WindowIgnition OffLock Doors with Door Panel Switch or Door KeyBe sure Hood, Trunk & all Doors are closed & lockedWait for apprx 2 minutesReach in thru Driver Window & "Manually" (not door panel switch) Unlock Door from insideOpen DoorDoes Horn, Siren or Lights flash??
Lights are flashing
When the Door is Unlocked with the Key, do they shut off??
lights do not shut off when door is unlocked by key. lights only stop when key in ignition;however car will not turn over.
>>however car will not turn over. <<
Do you mean engine will not "CRANK"?OREngine will not "RUN"??
engine will "crank" but not "run"
If engine is cranking & does not run, then it does not sound like Alarm issueI also noticed you had a question with Richard.He suggested checking the Crank Sensor & Main Relay.That would be the first thing to do
