Customer Question
The alarm won't go...

The alarm won't go off. the only way to turn it off is to disconnect the battery. 2000 Xterra

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

Yes.

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

I would just like to get it to the dealer without the horn blaring.

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

The only thing i know to do is play with the key fob i can't locate the fuse the controls the horn or alarm.

Hello my name is ***** ***** welcome to just answers! I will be assisting you with all of your vehicle questions today. Give me one moment while I review your question and come back with a answer. Please be aware I do not know your skill level or abilities so I will be asking a lot of questions and in a lot of cases we will respond to each other quite a lot before we find a solution. As far as phone calls are concerned that is the system prompting you, not me, and they do cost more money, I prefer text but in some cases a phone call is required. If I don’t answer right away or quickly in conversation I am helping another customer or have stepped out for a moment and will respond as soon as I can. Ok lets get started!

Have you tried using the key in the drivers door, lock and unlock twice

I have disconnected the battery to stop the alarm. so when you say lock and unlock are you referring to using the fob to lock and unlock. or using the actual key?
Nissan Mechanic: Mechanic01, ASE Certified Technician replied 8 months ago

using the actuall key and the battery has to be connected again, you will just have to hear the horn for a min

more than a minute but I'll have to go out and give it a try. so i'll just reconnect the battery and lock and unlock the door twice using the key?
