    Alarm stopped working...HELP!

    I have an audiovox pursuit with remote start. It came with my truck I bought used, but anyway... It used to work fine 'til a week or two ago. Now the led doesn't come on at all. The horn doesn't chirp when I lock the doors, and the parking lights don't flash anymore either when I push the lock button. I suspect that the alarm isn't working at all, and just the remote start and keyless entry are still functional.

    I don't remember doing anything to cause this. But I'm always installing something, so you never know! I really need my alarm to work, since I just got through installing a few g's worth of audio equipment. Sure I've got insurance, but who really wants to pay that deductible?

    So any ideas? I'm assuming there's a fuse somewhere that I should check, but I don't know where. In the "brain" itself? In the regular fuse box for the car? Funny thing is...when I use the factory remote, the parking lights flash and the horn beeps! WTF? Still no led though, and the car is definitely unarmed (I tested it out).

    Not sure if it's related, but my power moonroof stopped working around the same time. - Probably unrelated, but I thought I'd throw that out there just to provide as much info. as possible.

    Any clues?

    check ALL your fuses. Do you have a manual that came with the truck? if not find a dealership for the make and model of that truck, they should be able to help you.

    find the brain, and check to see if the 12V. wire has a blown fuse, that could be one problem if they used seperate 12V wire inputs for the alarm brain and then for the remote start sat. relay pack. just my 2 cents n thats all

    there could be other probelms since you says it locks and unlocks, although im not familiar with audiovox mostly dei products. it seems it may not be the 12 volt wire hmm not to sure at this point

    I had the same problem when I had my Python 881XV. My lights didn't flash when I used my LED. it turned out being juse a fuse that was blown on the brain.

    Cool. I'll check the fuse(s) on the brain. I just have no idea where it is! Usually in the dash underneath the steering wheel, right? wrong?

    Re: Alarm stopped working...HELP!

    Yeah, probably right under the driver side dash. It'll probably be pretty easy to find, unless they did a really good job on the install. In that case, it'd be really well-hidden with all of the wires covered in tape.

    Most likely though, it's right under the dash with a bunch of colored wires running toward it and some relays nearby.

    Re: Alarm stopped working...HELP!

    yeah thx. i found it but no dice. i checked 3 fuses attached to the alarm wiring, and they all appeared to be fine. it figures though, 'cause the remote start wouldn't work then would it? I also checked all of the vehicle fuses and came up with nothing. I'm at my wit's end. I guess I'm gonna take it somewhere and pay them to look at it. thx for everyone's help.
