Alarm system

  • 1997 INFINITI Q45

I have had to disconnect the battery to shut down the alarm. I have tried using the key in the drivers side door, but that does nothing. Thanks for any ideas on how to disable the alarm system.
Do you
have the same problem?

Hey Larry,

Here is the instructions from the manual:

1. Setting the theft warning system

Disarmed phase
When the vehicle is being driven or when doors or trunk lid is open, the theft warning system is set in the disarmed phase on the assumption that the owner is inside or near the vehicle.

Pre-armed phase and armed phase
The theft warning system turns into the "pre-armed" phase when hood, trunk lid and all doors are closed and locked by key or multi-remote controller. (The security indicator lamp illuminates for 30 seconds.) After about thirty seconds, the system automatically shifts into the "armed" phase (the system is set).

2. Canceling the set theft warning system
When the following (a) or (b) operation is performed, the armed phase is canceled.
Unlock the doors with the key or multi-remote controller.
Open the trunk lid with the key or multi-remote controller. When the trunk lid is closed after opening the trunk lid with the key or multi-remote controller, the system returns to the armed phase.

3. Activating the alarm operation of the theft warning system
Make sure the system is in the armed phase.
When the following operation (a), (b) or (c) is performed, the system sounds the horns and flashes the headlamps for about 2.5 minutes.
Engine hood or any door is opened before unlocking door with key or multi remote controller.
Door is unlocked without using key or multi remote controller.
Trunk lid is opened without using key or multi-remote controller.

Let me know how it goes.

Best, Ken
