How do I get my car started?
My battery died. While connected with
cables for jump, I tried to start my car.
Wow.... my car alarm wont let me
pass. It goes off every time. So how
do I get my car started?
This is the way the alarm is designed - it is intentional. The best thing to do when reconnecting the battery or jump-starting the car is to have a friend standing ready to insert and twist the key in one of the door locks as soon as the alarm goes off. Inserting the key in one of the doors and twisting it in the unlock direction is the official method for deactivating the alarm on these vehicles, unless you are lucky enough to have a keyless entry system (in which case, you have a little button on your key fob that will silence the alarm).
that is correct, when the alarm sounds you need to close the door and put the lock and take it again and the alarm should deactivate. this is with the cables already connected to the vehicle because if the voltage is low the alarm wont function correctly.
