turning off anti theft alarm while having broken door locks
I had my car broken into and they jammed the end of a scissor into both of my
door locks and now i can't use my key to unlock or lock my doors. Had to
have AAA come and unlock the door when I locked myself out of my car. When
they did the anti theft alarm came on and I had to disconnect the battery. Now
my car won't start and any time I hook up the battery the alarm goes off. I tried
taking the fuse for the horn and the anti theft out but that still didn't help with
getting my car to start back up. Any suggestions???
Once the anti-theft system kicks in you need to perform a procedure outlined in your owners manual to get out of it. Owners manuals are available on line, just google your car. In your case, you need to get the locks fixed or this will just happen again. After you have the door locks replaced you'll have to have the key/fob redone. It would be best if you have a locksmith or a Nissan dealer do all this for you; if you're not familiar with the procedures, it's really complicated.
There is a reset switch intop of trunk look for an hole or opening and its in there ! Not alot of people know about this! And it disengages alarm so car can start
Nissan is unaware of this. From Nissan: "To reset the security system remove the negative battery cable for 30 minutes, then reconnect the cable. Next, lock and unlock the doors using the remote. This will reset the alarm system and the engine will start."
