Alarm Code Comments Needed


Recommended Posts

Regretably durametric doesn't have the ability to reset alarm codes. I have two and again the link on the durametric page doesn't link to the error codes on the webpage as they would have you believe. File attached.

Alarm Current Fault Codes

41 No engine start possible Transponder pill faulty or not present Status: Not present Number of times DTC present: 1

33 No passenger compartment monitoring Interior monitoring sensor faulty Status: Not present Number of times DTC present: 1

The first one (41) has me concerned. We tried this with both keys and with the car running and not. Same codes comes up as if it thinks the transponder is the key is bad

the 2nd one (33) I am wondering if the feature was turned off by the dealer for any reason?

NOTE: The alarm arms and disarms as expected according to the manual. No error flashes from the exterior lights and the LED is blinking on the dash when armed.

Any comments would be apprciated.

This says that the alarm controller is not getting a signal from your key fob transponder. Try another key or you could have a bad key fob (transponder).

33 No passenger compartment monitoring Interior monitoring sensor faulty Status: Not present Number of times DTC present: 1
Fairly common - likely nothing to worry about. The motion sensor detected something moving (once). This is not enough to trigger an alarm.

Interesting...shouldn't a lack of a transponder code prevent the car from starting?

So this really not a fault and the system (motion monitor) is most likly working? It simply is stating it once registared (something) that was not big enough to trigger the alarm?

Yes, but it could be intermittent.

To my knowledge - yes. We have seen that same error fault on many cars that work fine.

eek! Intermittent = bad

Any failure trends on the car side of this code as opposed to the keys?

Again we tested both keys...should I replace batteries, or does this have nothing to do with it? (as the keys work from a good distance of locking/unlocking the car).

Any posibility this code could come from a re-coded key?

Looks like I may need to run this past a shop with the "real deal" code tester you have. Since I just got this car (63K miles) and know little service history I may have a shop kick a few tires on things.

I would try new batteries and the reverse/reboot trick too.

I think an alarm controller is expensive.

I would guess very expensive on a controler, just curious if a common failure trend. I am guessing your P-Code Tool could complete disable the alarm system if the controller failed, care to venture a guess? I know they can turn off quite a bit of security functions.

What do you mean by reverse/reboot trick a P-Code Tool like yours to reset alarm codes?

thanks.
