How to disable the security alarm

Asked by Jan 07, 2009 at 09:51 PM about the 1995 Nissan Maxima GXE

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

My Car's remote is not working, one day it was locked and I opened with key and its alarm is on, then I unplugged the battery to stop the alarm. It's been a week. I can use my car untill I disable the alarm.

Does any one know how to disable the alarm.

I greatly appreciate any help.

Have you tried starting the car when the alarm is going off? Mine was set off like the same way, and couldn't figure out, and by the time I was going to try and start the car to see if it would go off then, it went off.....what a coincidence. LOL! You may try locking your doors and using the key when you unlock them. It should disarm the alarm. Well, it does on the newer ones, like mine.

You can disable the alarm (which is the horn) by opening the hood, on the left front side is a box and there are plugs marked horn 1 and horn2, pull both of them out. I have a 97 maxima and the alarms kept going off randomly when the car was locked and parked. Or you can NOT lock your car.

Try this, first make sure the battery is disconnected. Then turn the ignition to the run position. Then reconnect the battery. that should work.

This is an old trick. When the alarm goes off, put the key into the keyhole on the drivers door and turn it. This works everytime.

Rtriel and Errol are right! We tried it and it worked the first time. Like they said, just disconnect the battery, lock all the doors. Connect the battery and when the alarm goes off, use the key to unlock the driver's side door. Voila!

None of these solutions work for me. My ignition is locked out, and the car will not start. Normally, when you lock the vehicle, the dash security light blinks. When I lock my vehicle, the security light does not blink until I unlock and open the door. That sets off the alarm and the security light starts blinking. When I disconnect the battery, the alarm stops. When I reconnect the battery, the alarm does not start until I open a door OR when I turn the trunk lock ( but not open the trunk) .

Radbrad disconnect the battery take out the horn fuse then connect the battery it should work I had the same problem. This resets the alarm. Hope it works. You can then put the horn fuse back but if it goes off when you put it back then there's something wrong with your alarm.

Remove negative battery terminal, turn key and hold in start position and have someone replace the negative terminal. Just worked in a 1998 Nissan Altima GLE!

Well i own a nissan altima. My car alarm is kinda the same. It needs to be unlocked with the key fob or key to disengage the alarm. But if you mistakenly set the alarm off and your key fob wont disengage it it could mean your key fob is not programmed to your car correctly, or you have the wrong key fob for your car. All key fobs are different on each car. If you dont have a the key fob in correctly. Get in the car on the drivers side, close all doors and lock the car with the power lock switch on the door panel. Then insert the key in the ignition cylinder and out six times within 10 seconds. Dont go to fast when inserting it and taking it out. Then if done successfully your hazardous lights turn on, wait five seconds, now insert your keyand turn to a/c then pish any button on the key fob and wait 10 seconds. The unlock doors and test the key fob. If you set it off and you dont have a key fob or lost it. Lock the doors with the power lock switch, insert the key in the drivers door, turn left, then right to disarm and reset it.

We have a 98 maxima that we are making a HotShot dirt track car out of. The car was running perfect until we striped the door panels and cut the lock wires and so on. Now the security light is staying on and it's like the car is I'm lymp mode. Car won't go over about 40 mph. Any ideas?

the 99 maxima horn (in front of the radiator) mounting bracket had broken (ground), Cleaned it up and bolted to chasis and security light turned off and car started.

Have a 2008 rouge the seat belt buckle got hung up in the door when shut put a ding where the switch is. The switch would would work but would pop out a little diffrent times of the night and set the alarm off. I just glued a quarter in the spot where the switch hits and problem solved
