Issue will be, yes I have the key but I do not want to pull crowd towards my car due to alarm when I open the car with key when it is locked using remote lock.
is there anyway we can get a another/duplicate remote ? if yes I dont mind keeping one in my wife's handbag.
And i also should know how to disconnect it from mains.
Couple of weeks back I have seen a Ford fiesta which was speeding up with alarms on. I think he must be rushing to the nearest workshop.
Sethu, even if you get a duplicate remote from the same company of the keyless entry it won't work.
Each remote have to be coded to the security system before use.
you cannot code the duplicate remote just bought without opening the door.
So first thing you have to do is open the door with the key and open the hood by pulling the cable and disconnect the wire which is attached to the main terminal of the car battery.
Usually the wire has a socket which can be easily removed by our bare hands, and if the alarm stops and the indicators are still blinking, then go through the same wire and you may find a fuse attached to the wire,
by removing the fuse the indicator will stop blinking defusing the system.
This will take at least 3 to 4 minutes.
The alarm will sound till the socket is removed.
It have to because the system is not just a key less entry to the car, but it is a security system. @amit1km
I think you are right the sensor may sense the chip on the key and may not sound the alarm.
