Car Alarms/CATX-1B help


Hi. I recently purchased a 2012 vehicle with a Code-Alarm remote starter. It worked fine for about 2 months but I can no longer start the vehicle. The transmitter is labeled CATX-1B. I can't see any ID on the receiver but it is a small rectangular device about 2" wide x 3.5" long and 1" thick with a 2" long antenna and a single push button on the front of it.

Please help me!  It's really cold here and I'm hooked on a remote starter!

Thank You!!!

Most of the time the problem is in the hood pin switch, it believes the hood is open
and its not going to star, check in there first, is the remove battery ok ?

Transmitter Programming:

To reprogram the remote transmitter please perform the steps below:

   Turn the ignition ON.
   Press and hold the valet/override button.
   Within 10 seconds the system will chirp (3) three times.
   Press 1 button of each transmitter you wish to program.
   The system will respond with 1 light flash for each accepted transmitter.
   Pressing the override button at anytime during programming will advance to the next bank.


       The system will exit transmitter programming after 15 seconds of inactivity.
       This system has 1 button programming which programs all channels of the system.
       The system will hold up to 4 transmitters in memory, programming a 5th transmitter will erase the oldest transmitter in memory.
