There should be an overide button installed under the dash at or near the steering column. It will be a small black push button. See if you can find it. Then turn on the key and push that button. That should turn the alarm off and allow you to start the vehicle. Let me know if you find it.

Is it a black little circuit box called flashlogic?
Car Electronics Technician: Chris, Auto Service Technician replied 7 months ago
Ok, the installer must have hid it pretty well. So then plan be is to disconnect the negative battery cable. Then wait a couple of minutes. Turn the ignition switch on to the run position. Then reconnect the battery cable. Now try to start it. Let me know if that works.Chris

I don't have any tools to disconnect the negative battery cable.
Car Electronics Technician: Chris, Auto Service Technician replied 7 months ago
Hmmm, well the only options are 1 get a battery for the remote, 2 try to find that button, or 3 get a wrench so you can disconnect the negative battery cable. I guess a 4th option would be to have the vehicle towed to a shop and have the alarm system removed. Those are really your only options.Chris
