My Dads truck may be 12 years old, but has less then 6000 mile on it since it doesn't get driven very often or far. Therefore never needed a mechanic to work on it. I don't know who this mechanic is that disabled the alarm is since I wasn't there at the time. I could ask my Dad to call the mechanic back and have him undo what he did to disable everything, but he might not remember who the mechanic was. Someone he found in the phonebook or somebody else that was there called him. I found white and black electrical wire clipping on the drivers side floor mat so I am sure some wiring was altered. We do have 2 dealerships in the area so I might end up taking the truck to one of them to fix it. Maybe this mechanic jumped the wire for yhe valet
I would think altering the valet switch would disable the alarm, but would that also affect the keyless entry system, since the remote doesn't even open the doors?
