Customer Question
Alarm not allowing car...

Alarm not allowing car to start. Starter replaced today. How do we disarm alarm system so it will start?

Mechanic's Assistant: Have you tried locking and unlocking the driver's side door using the key itself?

Not yet. It's my son's car and he's afraid to do anything with it because he's afraid it will cause alarm to go off and run battery down

Mechanic's Assistant: What is the model/year of your Chrysler?

2007 PT cruiser touring I believe

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your PT Cruiser yourself? What have you tried so far?

No, he just paid over $300 to have starter replaced at a shop

Mechanic's Assistant: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?

No, just that we were told the alarm system is causing the car to not start. We just need to know how to disengage the alarm system

What Customers are Saying:

I was skeptical at first but thought I'd give it a try. I was pleasantly surprised. Your site actually is a quality service that I would recommend to others in a heartbeat.

StanSayre, PA

I AM VERY GLAD THAT I TOOK A CHANCE ON YOUR PROBLEM SOLVING SKILLS. I WAS SUCCESSFUL IN REPLACING THE FUEL PUMP. MY TRUCK RUNS LIKE A CLOCK. IT RUNS LIKE THE DAY I BOUGHT IT. NO LUNGING FORWARD, THE TURBO REACTS THE SECOND I STOMP ON THE GAS, AND IT HAS A LOT MORE POWER AND EVEN SOUNDS BETTER TO ME. IT SAVED ABOUT $500.00 BY DOING THE WORK MYSELF. I GIVE YOU ALL THE CREDIT FOR YOUR DIAGNOSING THE PROBLEM, JUST FROM THE SYMPTONS I GAVE YOU OVER THE e MAIL. I WILL USE YOUR WEB SITE AGAIN AND REFER MY FRIENDS. THANKS SO MUCH FOR THE HELP.

TOM WHITTAKERUSA
