Q: Car alarm keeping car from starting

asked by on

The car alarm will not turn off. I cannot start and move the car.

You will have to put the key in the door lock and lock/unlock the door manually with the key. Turn the key to the unlock position and see if the alarm stops sounding. If this doesn’t work, you may have to have a trained technician, like one from YourMechanic, find the issue and perform any necessary repairs.
