Hi my name is ***** ***** I will be happy to assist with this today.In some cases I may need more info to assist better.I apologize for any delay.

The fuses for this alarm system are fuses 3 and 7 in the under dash fuse panel.These power up the alarm control units and components.If any of these are blown the affected fuse needs replaced.If all fuses are o.k. then you need to have the fault codes read out with a compatible scan tool to see what codes are set then those codes can be diagnosed to then locate and repair this issue here.The fault can be with the MICU itself in the interior fuse panel needing replaced.
