Do you have a remote for the vehicle to turn the alarm off?
Is it a siren or the horn going off?

I do not have a remote. It's been 8 to 10 years since l lost remotes. I never had to use them I got by just using the key. I had this problem once before a couple of years ago. I had reset alarm by pushing the reset button under the dash and do something with the key on and off thing. I don't remember the pattern. I think you guys help me out the last time.

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.

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.
