Customer Question
My security system stopped...

My security system stopped working. Im wondering how to check if it was disconnected.

Mechanic's Assistant: What is the model/year of your Buick?

2000 buick lesabre custom

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

Im not fixing it, no. It looks like someone broke in (without breaking anything) and now the security system doesnt work anymore. SO we think they may have disconenected it want to test if possible

Hello and welcome to JustAnswer! I apologize for the extended wait time you experienced, I've only just come online now and would like to assist you with your question.

If you have an aftermarket system then it could be disconnected but that should be apparent as the wiring and module would most likely be visible and hanging from under the dash on the driver's side.

What are the actual symptoms you're trying to diagnose?
