Q: Alarm system won't turn off

asked by on

The alarm system won't shut off, and the car won't start.

If the alarm system will not turn off, and the car will not start, I would first try unlocking the driver side door manually with the key, and if it has a remote, checking to see that the remote’s battery has not died. If both of these things seem to be okay, I would recommend having a professional technician, such as one from YourMechanic, look over the vehicle, as this problem could be electrical in nature.
