Car Alarms/Car alarm not working
I have a Nissan frontier AXE 2004 truck. The "panic/locator" button and "lock/unlock" button on the keyless fob functions well, except that upon locking the doors with the keyless alarm switch, doors lock, horn beeps once, lights blink once. I assume the alarm is armed, but the truck has gotten collided, bumped, tapped, etc. and not a peep from the alarm, as if the sensor isn't set to anything. What can I do?
Should be no problem really.
It appears from your expaination, that the
after market 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, usually to the
left of the leg drilled into a hidden away spot,
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.
(In valet mode, take the vehicle to a local
car alarm shop to evaluate the shock sensor
settings and if all componants are up to snuff.
Makes for a better experience.)
That should do it.
Let me know what happens.
