My apologies for the delay, thank you for your patience.
What exactly is the problem?
Kindly include all the symptoms.
Do you have a factory alarm, or an aftermarket alarm?
Was anything checked yet?

Hello Billy
It's a 1999 Nissan Primera P11 -144 2.0S Estate. Basically I have just the one remote key but a few days ago this suddenly stopped working and even though I replaced the battery it has made no difference. So I have to open the car manually which always sets the alarm off. The only way to shut it off is to put the key in the ignition and start up the engine. I presume it is a factory alarm but I'm not sure - is there a way to tell?
Anyway is there a way I can switch off the alarm without having to go the the Nissan dealer - it's an old car and not exactly a target for thieves? Otherwise I am having to leave it unlocked anyway so as not to continually annoy the neighbours. Thanks.
Rob.

Hello Rob,
Let's first try and reprogram the key fob (since its batteries were replaced).
Switch ignition ON and OFF 6 times within 10 seconds.
After 2 seconds indicators will flash twice.
Press and hold unlock button.
Press lock button 3 times.
Release unlock button.
Indicators will flash once.
If required repeat button procedure to program remaining remote controls.
Switch ignition ON, indicators will flash twice.
Check operation of all programmed remote controls.
NOTE: A maximum of 4 remote controls can be programmed. If all 4 remote controls are programmed indicators will flash 3 times.

The first two lines of the procedure worked ok but the key part ie press unlock and press lock 3 times didn't seem to do anything - the indicator didn't flash.
UK Auto Mechanic: Billy, Trainer/Master tech. replied 2 years ago
Hello again,
You need to press and hold the unlock button (keep pressed) while pressing the lock button 3 times. and then release the unlock button. did you try exactly that? (i'm sorry but we need to confirm)

Customer reply replied 2 years ago
Hello Billy. Yes I did exactly that several times and each time no reaction unfortunately.
UK Auto Mechanic: Billy, Trainer/Master tech. replied 2 years ago
Hello Rob,
When the alarm is triggered, does it make the same sound as the horn? or a different horn sound? (now trying for the easiest cheapest way to disarm the alarm or silence it)
Ask Your Own UK Car Question
Customer reply replied 2 years ago
It's definitely a different sound - the car horn is at a lower pitch than the alarm. Thanks.
UK Auto Mechanic: Billy, Trainer/Master tech. replied 2 years ago
Hello again,
In this case, the easiest and simplest way to go (apart from the first two steps), would be opening the hood, triggering the alarm, and finding out where the horn is located. Then, i would simply remove the connector from the alarm horn. The alarm would still trigger, but it will not cause any annoyance for you or your neighbours.
Kindly get back to me with your findings, or if further info is needed.
Regards,
Billy

Hello Billy.
The alarm is situated somewhere above the rear right wheel arch. I tried to access it but short of removing the interior boot trim on that side I don't think I can reach it.
UK Auto Mechanic: Billy, Trainer/Master tech. replied 2 years ago
Hello again,
The horn should be on the exterior. So removing the wheel arch trim (the plastic around the wheel), should give you access to the horn. You simply need to disconnect its wire, and cover the wire with some tape.
Regards,
Billy

This mark of Primera seems to be all metal except for the rear bumper - there's no plastic wheel arch trim attached to the outer body.. However are you actually referring to the inside of the wheel arch where the dried mud collects above the wheel?
UK Auto Mechanic: Billy, Trainer/Master tech. replied 2 years ago
Well, they don't make them like this anymore...
Indeed, where the mud collects... as the horn, should be placed on the outside...
This should be the only time you might like to leave the alarm for a minute to track the horn, and remove the connector off of it...

Hello Billy. I think the alarm is factory fitted and in the car panel somewhere above the wheel where you can't easily access. Sounds like I'm snookered! Cheers.
UK Auto Mechanic: Billy, Trainer/Master tech. replied 2 years ago
Hello Rob,
Didn't you locate the horn? as even if the alarm is factory fitted, disconnecting the horn will sort the issue.
