Question
I have a 99 Forester that I bought used 2 years ago, this morning when I opened the door an alarm started going off. The car will not start! I did not get a remote when I bought the car and I looked for a switch
Under the dash board, i found two wires but there Is nothing attached to the ends, looks like if there was a switch it was broken off. Any idea how I can disable the alarm?

Answer
Ok then, get over to the local car alarm shop,
or even a Best Buys will
have a valet switch that will fit for your
alarm.

In the mean time, locate the 2 wires that were
connected and are hanging free.

Then twist together, turn on the ignition,
hold both wires to ground until the siren chirps.

That should reset and place the alarm into
over ride for now. Nothing accept the keyless entry
if installed will operate until you repeat the
same steps.

Then get a new switch and you're all set.

Have a good day.
Let me know if you were
successful.
