I've tried this a few times and I must be doing something wrong.I wait for alarm to sound
Turn key on (past ACC, but not start) wait 1 sec, then back to ACC for 1 sec, etc as you said.After the 5th on/ACC, do I turn it off, or go right to start?Thanks!Adam

Still not working. After the first full on/off/on the alarm stops ringing. I'm going through all 5 cycles.I noticed that the security light blinks slowly when the doors are shut, but when I open a door it blinks faster before ringing alarm.Also, I have the security switch set to "horn defeat". Does that matter?Anything go else I can try?Thanks,Adam

THat is the only method that the factory has released to silence the alarm. IIf the sequence does not work, I suspect that the RS3000 or RS3200 main control unit may have gotten wet. If so, this causes the system to do all kinds of weird things. Look under the driver side seat for a black box. See if it has gotten wet. Note that the car will not start with this box disconnected. You may need to remove the Rs3200 system from the vehicle or replace the RS3200 controller.
