Took my car to hae tires put on, the tech locked the doors with the electronic switch, so opening the car set off anti-theft. I have tried locking and unlocking both doors with the key, to no avail (this has worked in the past), and I have tried disconnecting the battery for about 20 mins, no change. Any ideas how to 'fool' the system into 'seeing' the keylock cancel? Ideas I have had and not yet tried include removing both battery cables and grounding the positive cable for a period to reset all voltages to 0, simulating keylock cancel by shorting the switch on the door lockset, or opening circuit depending on which condition (open/closed) the switch uses to cancel the alarm. If anyone could give me a him as to if the first idea is adviseable, or the chances it migh work, beyond that, advice as to how I would best accomplish the latter idea, and it's chance of working. Thrdly, if anyone has any other advice how I might get this alarm disabled, I would be greatly appreciative. Also, the car has been sitting overnight with the battery disconnected, is there a chance the car may have corrected itself by having had the battery disconnected this long? The car is a good distance from here and while the people at walmart are supposedto have it fixed, I have a great deal more confidance in my skills and expert advice than waiting on them. PLEASE HELP ME! THANKS!
