Disconnect the Positive Battery Cable.
Open the Drivers Door & Leave Open.
Turn Ignition Switch to ON Position (run)
Reconnect Positive Battery Cable.
Horn may sound for a few seconds.
Start Vehicle.

Eclayton4 :

Hey just following up, were you able to reset the alarm? thanks.

JACUSTOMER-fp8hyxjn- : No that didn't work but I have the dash out would that affect the reset
Eclayton4 :

It's possible, but that is the only instructions I have to reset the security system. Let me opt out and then your question gets put back on the board for all the other experts to see. If someone else has another suggestion they can then respond. Thank you.

The starter doesn't even turn
Auto Mechanic: Tim Mohr, ASE MASTER TECH replied 5 years ago
ok, to determone if its in the security system, put the key in the start position and hold it there for 10 seconds, if it does not turn over after 10 seconds, its not in the security system, can you try this?

Customer reply replied 5 years ago
just tried it and it did not crank
Customer reply replied 5 years ago
Do you have any idea what it could be
Auto Mechanic: Tim Mohr, ASE MASTER TECH replied 5 years ago
IF IT DID NOT CRANK AFTER 10 SECONDS, ITS NOT THE SECURITY SYSTEM, IT WILL BE IN THE STARTER SYSTEM, do you have a volt meter or a test light, we can check the starter real quick?

Well what requires the security stem to disarm because I've looked up some wiring diagrams at all data unplugged the theft alarm unit and jumped a few wires and it would crank
Auto Mechanic: Tim Mohr, ASE MASTER TECH replied 5 years ago
which wires did you jump?
