julius ayong: would like to see on how to on pontiac grandam?recently died on me my remote start after i replace my battery thanks

Jerid Feces: to semi-permanently disable my aftermarket alarm that was installed years ago by future shop. Symptoms: 1) I have no remote control 2) alarm is continuously on (unless I disconnect battery) ...here is what I did (btw, I'm a noob when it comes to car alarms but this solved my issue). 1) disconnect the negative terminal on the battery 2) just to make the sound go away first, I found the speaker, this is a black cone shape and it's mounted on a swivel hinge pointed down under the hood located near the battery, just cut the 2 wires leading to it and isolate it with electrical tape. (this thing is just mounted with a 2 or more screws and you can clearly see that it's not part of factory due to the type of screws used and the way it's mounted in odd position). 3) find the alarm "shock" module under the dashboard, there will be a few black box modules under the dash, the one you should look for is one with a green and/or red LED, it will have a "sensitivity" adjustment "potentiometer" (a little thingy that you can put a screwdriver in to adjust, look closely because it's very small, use a flash light) that you can adjust the sensitivity when someone hits the car to trigger the alarm. Turn it counter-clockwise as far as it can go to minimize/disable sensitivity. You may also need to cut the straps to loosen the modules in order to access it, just make sure not to cut any wires (if you do, then make sure to strap them back into place, you don't want a connection going loose or your foot accidentally attaching to it while you drive) 4) connect negative terminal back 5) you might notice now that the alarm noise is off (since we cut the alarm speaker), but the front-headlights are still blinking, and the inside of the car might be making a beeping noise on and off. This is because the car alarm is still active and this will eventually drain your battery. 6) there is a bypass toggle switch located and mounted somewhere under your dashboard, for mine it was a metal silver toggle switch you press down (and again you can clearly see from how it's mounted and the type of mount that it's not factory). I don't know what this switch does exactly, but it seems like it resets the alarms "memory". Find this toggle switch first. 7) in order for this toggle switch to work to reset the alarm, turn the car on. The press this switch and hold it down for a few seconds, you may hear a "click" sound, when you do, turn the car off and this should effectively disable the alarm (if it was constantly on which it was in my situation). Note and Caution: this process atleast reduces significantly the chance for the car alarm to go on (hence "semi-permanently"), in my case I don't have anymore problems. However, the car alarm might be screwed up and you should still be careful that you don't drain your battery when the front-headlights blink and interior noise is on (indicating the alarm is triggered). If this happens just repeat steps 6 and 7. Otherwise you have two choices to permanently disable: 1) you will have to go to an automotive electronic specialist who can permanently disable the aftermarket alarm without affecting the factory electronics. (recommended) 2) the other way is more risky do it yourself, and requires tiny bit of electronics background (I was about to go this route). Even though it may look like a rats nest of wiring, all you would have to do to take it back to "factory" default condition is to trace the wires that are taped from the aftermarket alarm modules , disconnect those and connect them back to their original corresponding factory wire. You will have to definitely know which module is for the aftermarket alarm, and then based on the wire type and color connect it back to original factory. Because they are taped you can definitely see which ones were modified, so take those apart then disconnect the modules altogether, then you will be left with factory wires, and connect them back the same way. Anyhow, I hope this helps anyone, alarms systems can fairly complicated because they "integrate" to many aspects of the car, make sure know what you're doing.

You saved my day and my Friday afternoon!!

I obviously know there is a remote start but how do i figure out to make it work? Brain does NOT have any markings to identify it.. and the professionals say they have never seen it before. Can I reset everything including the fob so I can use it?
