Did this video help you?

Jamie Brandrick: I tried this and I got the 3 chirps but the truck would not start with the remote start. I did it three times with no luck. The lights on the dash come up and the alarm light flashes, the horn sounds like it is going to start, the heaters come on but the truck won't start???? 

Justificable: it didnt work for me men the blue light just stays on but my remote still wont work ! 

ricardo vazquez: Im about to check. But its mid nite .i cant wait to wake up and do it. So big question!. Can. I buy any remote. And it would work? I have an( acura sedan 94)

CENTAUR559: I have a Viper 5901 and first I had trouble getting my antenna to work to put it in valet mode (remote would not lock or unlock) so i decided to check the cables and remembered seeing something about a fuse on the brain. So it turns out the fuse was bad and I just replaced it and was able to "reset" my alarm but the remote still does not communicate with the alarm. Are there any other fuses I should check or is there a way the remote could have unprogrammed itself from the system?

Cristian Alvarado: Thanks i was out in the cold fir an hour until i found this video. Thanks for help.

nhbrett: Good job! Thank you!

Jil Gordon: I cannot find the Valet button? Any suggestions. It worked this morning then two hours later nothing. When I press any of the buttons a little red flash is on the remote. Does that mean anything? that the battery is not dead? But where is the valet button?

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

D Gray: Thank you, thank you, thank you! In the one hour between locking my car and coming back to my car, my remote's battery died. I couldn't get into my car. I finally decided I had to just open the door; the horn started honking, etc. I finally got the alarm to stop, but then couldn't start my car. I pulled out my cell phone and found your video. You saved my day and my Friday afternoon!!

Ron Waters: Remote Start 

Evie Lane: thanks

Anthony Plettl: Having this issue with my 98 ford explorer with a command start remote starter. i don't have the remote. changed battery and now can't start it. seems like there is some sequence to get it going. Help please !! 

Evie Lane: I have a 2007 misubishi outlander change batteries and the lights on remote work but won't unlock /lock my car, can you help and I don't have the valet buttons you talked about in your video.

Dhalsim Jones: 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.

Larry Schultz: unable to use remote start after battery change. anti-theft alarm seems to be operating normally (as per manual). unable to find valet button, and not even sure of actual model # installer (circuit city ) out of business. I know it's just a matter of clicks on the remote but none have worked. Anyone?

J*19: I tried doing this to my car but all it does is a clicking sound and my command start still doesn't work. Is there another way to do it or am i missing something here? thanks.

Barry Arntz: Thank you very much It now works again

14goldmedals: I've loaded well over 15,000 trap loads using that exact wad for 1 oz of 8 shot. You should really seat and compress the wads then after dropping in the slug the crimp will stay flat and not push a little open like your first one showed. Shotgun loads rely on powder compression for consistency. Give it a try, then give us an accuracy report. Thanks for the clear video with good sound.
