Uh Oh! Alarm won't go off

Recommended Posts

Well I knew I would be posting here soon with something. I really like my Boxster, and it needs some TLC I think.

Here's the problem, I pushed the button to disarm the alarm before my driving today. Everything was fine until I stopped and

went to arm the alarm. Nothing happened, no flashing lights, no audible sounds of locking nothing. I thought the car was

left un-locked so I used the key to lock the door.

That's when I noticed that the normal red flasher for the alarm was not flashing but two adjacent ones were! I then determined that the car is locked the whole

time and I overrode everything? I thought the battery in the remote was bad so I replaced it to no avail. I also discovered that the fuel hatch does not

come un-locked no matter what state the alarm is in. That could be a problem, soon.

Is this something like a dead remote head on the key, or is it time to go to the dealer for a code reading??

Any help or advice is appreciated. Thanks!

Using the key in the door should override the Anti-Theft system. Then ignition on should reset key. If this is not happening you may have a issue with your module under the dirvers seat. If it is wet under there you will want to find out why right away and dry it out completely. JES
