Car Alarms/car alarm problem
I have a 2007 ford f250 with a micro alarm. Yesterday i noticed that the security light won't go off and when i lock the doors the horn doesn't beep, What could be wrong with my alarm system, why wont it lock and beep the horn when it does?
Should be no problem really.
It appears from your expaination, that the
car alarm is in service mode.
Ok, try this.
Put the key in the ignition, and turn forward
all the way just before cranking. Then within
5 seconds, press and hold in the valet/overide
button, found under the dash area,
until the installed LED (the blinking light)
in your dash area goes off, and the siren chirps twice.
(Your valet switch might be the toggle (on/off) type.
in this case, key on, flip switch in oposite direction,
This should reset the alarm.
Just Repeat these steps to place it
back to valet mode.
That should do it.
If you want to remove it at this point,
take it to your neighborhood installer
for this, or buy the wiring chart for
the vehicle, and reverse engineer it wire
by wire, until it's safely removed.
If it does not work out this way, you will have
to replace the system with one you know how
to operate and what to expect.
Let me know what happens.
