My kids are stranded...

My kids are stranded in a 2002 Chyrsler Sebring and the alarm system keeps going off every time it is touched and the car didn't come with a FOB

Mechanic's Assistant: Have you checked the fob's battery?

No FOB

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

I am 1 !/2 hours away from them. They can't find a button or anything to turn it off.

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

How do you either disconnect the system, pull fuses, or disable it without an FOB?

Hi, I'm Ron and I will be helping you today.
Stand by for a moment while I prepare your answer.

I attached 2 docs for you to to let have them review and try. One or both of them will fix it as long as the computer is not the problem.

Please understand that I don't know your skill level or tools
you have to assist us. Also understand that I can't see, smell,
hear, or touch the vehicle either, so your patience is
appreciated. JA is a great Q/A site, but it does not replace a
repair shop. So please don’t shoot the messenger if I have to
deliver bad news:)
If you are satisfied with my answer, I would greatly
appreciate a 5 star rating now before you leave the site and I
will still assist you after you have rated me too if another
question pops up. I don’t get credit for helping you until
you rate me

Thanks, Ron

No I wanted an answer on how to disable the alarm system without the FOB. The car didn't come with one when it was purchased. They have no tools handy and everytime they touch the car the alarm system goes off.

You can't disable a security system, it's part of the computer system.

I know you don't want to hear what's true, But that's all there is to tell you is the truth.

Thanks again and please remember to rate me 5 stars now
and keep this link in case you need me again later on.
I don’t get credit for assisting you until you rate me

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
