Customer Question
Hit lock by mistake and...
Hit lock by mistake and now truck won't start. Alarm is going off and won't stop. its done this before, but when it did, it wouldn't unlock the driver door but it did the passenger door. I unlocked it, and put the key in, and it started. But then when I got home, I shut it off and it wouldn't start. So then I locked the locks manually and unlocked each of them first, so I tried it twice and it still wouldn't start. So I turned the lights on for a few minutes, then unhooked the battery. Left the lights on for a while and then shut off and let sit for awhile, then it started. I've tried all that and more and it still won't start. If I don't get it started do I still have to pay you?

Welcome, I'm Chris (aka Moose). Experts aren't employees / agents of Just Answer. We are independent service providers using the Site to sell their Expert knowledge to Customers. I strive to provide EXCELLENT 5 STAR service, let me know what's needed from me so your pleased.

All of this sounds like an aftermarket alarm system, the OEM system can not do the failures you have mentioned with the current and prior resolves you have done and attempted. With the key on is the theft light on or flashing?

Thanks for asking your question and letting me try to help you.

If your confused on why or how to rate me, let me know.

I'm only paid from the deposit you've made when you rate 3,4, or 5 stars.

Follow up/Reply as many times as needed before or after rating.

AlvinC answered a question about my Ford truck that only someone with an in-depth knowledge of his subject would have known what was going on.

Rich DUSA

Because of your expertise, you armed me with enough ammunition to win the battle with the dealer. They are installing a fuel filter and fuel pump at no charge to me.

I needed help with my car on Saturday morning....got a response in 5 minutes, and it was the perfect solution. Thanks again to your service.

Jason V.Kirkland, WA

I do know, after going though this with JustAnswer, that I can somewhat trust my mechanic but I will always contact you prior to going there.

BRNew Jersey

I would (and have) recommend your site to others I was quite satisfied with the quality of the information received, the professional with whom I interacted, and the quick response time. Thanks, and be sure that I'll be back whenever I need a question answered in a hurry.
