Q: Alarm not turning off

asked by on

The alarm in my car won't turn off.

The alarm requires the remote to turn it off. If the remote is inoperable or has weak batteries, it will not disable the alarm to be able to start the car. I recommend you have a qualified mechanic, like the ones from YourMechanic, to come by and inspect the alarm issue.
