    Anyone with Compustar alarm experience enter please.

    Allright my alarm just went stupid on me last night...
    its a compustar 1WAM-A
    left my house, unarmed/unlocked with the alarm remote...
    got home hit the arm/lock button, nothing happened, like it just gave up.

    did some troubleshooting today.
    relay is fine.
    everythings getting power
    no blown fuses.

    when i try to reprogram my remotes thinking that was the problem. i do the acc to on 5 times and the lights blink once...hit lock...nothing, then a few seconds later my lights flash twice.

    and i cant get the remotes to program with the alarm.

    not sure if its a brain issue now.

    double checked all the **** wiring to it too. everythings a-ok..
    worked flawlessly for over a year until last night :-\

    any help?

    Re: Anyone with Compustar alarm experience enter please.

    My experience with Compustar is that unless you are an authorized dealer/installer, they don't want to have anything to do with you.

    Mine was doing the exact same thing, but only when it was very cold out. funny thing is, my past 3 alarms have acted this way (compustar, viper, prestige). I just installed an Autopage on a buddy's car and it works flawless. We'll see how it does over time.

    In all my years installing alarms, Alpine and Prestige have served me the best.



    A bunch of SSA stuff.

    I second that. They like to talk to installers that are authorized, not Joe Blows who bought a used alarm or one off eGay and installed it themselves. That being said, act like you are an installer of a shop that is authorized. Their alarm brains are very sensitive, they like to see a lot of diodes .

    True I hear you on that one. Only reason I have a compustar in there is due to when i went down to II for school. They gave everyone for free for us to install down there. Eh, and it was reallllllllly cold out when it started acting up. Eh. I have to call them and see if they're going to want to warranty the brain for me.
