I just had a new starter put in, and now my alarm system is constantly going (no sounds, just lights). The parking lights and entire dash board blink on and off to a 'click' sound repeatedly, then it stops for a moment and repeats all over again. I have had this problem before and the solution was to disconnect the battery with the key in the ignition turned to a certain notch and then reconnect the battery and wala! Only I tried it this time and unless i'm forgetting a step it didn't work. I also don't have and never had a remote to access the security system. If that is needed information. I hope this question can be answered.

I found the answer, and its an odd one, but it fixes the problem here it goes.

-detach the black negative cord from the battery for a moment or 2

-put the key in and turn it all the way

-reattach the black negative cord to the battery

-turn the car on without ever removing the key or turning it back before you turn it forward to start the car

that's it! Simple but weird I think =)
