This is what I paid 4.99 for at wirewerx.com but it did not work.
Ok, not a problem, this can be done! Get out some basic install tools or geta friend or a good technician in there to do this. Normally, you would insert the key inthe drivers door, turn left, then rightto disarm and reset it. Yours was reset.Try key in the drivers door, turn left, thenright to disarm and unlock. If no joy,you can disable it for good by doing the following: The FACTORY ALARM DISARM WIRE IS blue/lt green |- | located at the 26 pin plugat the GEM. The GEM (generic electronic module) is behind the center console on the floor. Pull off the black panel to the right of the gas pedal, there will be carpet covering it. The plugs face the driver side of the vehicle. Once Located, splice into this wire witha similar gauge wire, and put it toa solid chassis ground. This terminatesthe OEM alarm functions entirely. However, at this point, this car would be exceedinglyeasy to steel, so I suggest you get an aftermarketalarm system to protect it from here on in. If you have already have an after market alarm however: (SIREN & FLASHING PARKING LIGHTS= AFTER MARKETor is it:CAR HORN & FLASHING HEADLIGHTS= OEM-FACTORY) Then look for the over ride/valet button underthe dash area, probably to the left leg region,drilled into the plastic kick panel. Then it's: KEY ON, PRESS AND HOLD IN BUTTON FIRMLYUNTIL THE SIREN CHIRPS ONCE, AND THE PARKING LIGHTS FLASH. THEN KEY OFF. This is over ride, and the car should start.The only thing that would work would be keylessentry if it is installed. The alarm functionshave been suspended. Let me know which applied to your issue. Good luck, & Best Regards,XXXXX XXXXX/CEO ALARMTEK ONLINE
