hi.

I have a 94 Impreza fitted with a Remac alarm (not sure of model),
the remote for it has broken. I do have another remote that has the same serial on it as the black box inside the car BUT it does not turn off the alarm, im guessing it needs to be programmed in.

Does anyone know what I can do here to solve this?

Can I somehow program in this other remote whilst the alarm is activated?
I've tried taking out the fuse, battery etc. there is NO override switch.
The company that makes Remac alarms is out of business and I can't get hold of them.


Id really appreciate any help

if it doesn't have an override switch it will have an over ride pin code witch you enter using the ignition switch. this is the one you operate with your key when your start your car. if you don't know the code then the car must be towed to an auto electrician who will bypass the immobilisers for you and im sorry to say like most things in life this will in cure a fee.



the code maybe written down in your manual if you have it.

joker97: the reality is - that the autoelectrician is your best bet


couldn't agree with you more joker that's why isn't a good idear to get to know your alarm and know how to override it incase something does happen.

I Got A 1996 Subaru Impreza with a Dynatron alarm installed. i got to know my alarm system so i know how to use the pin override if the remote goes flat. or if the remote becomes inoperatable.

One time i parked my car up at Dominos Pizza and the remote battary went flat on me so i just used the pin override the old lady was freaking out how are we going to get home how are we going to get home.

Or if you park under a transmission tower, eg Mount Kaukau in wellington, and the alarm does not respond to the remote.

Give this a try:

Remove the Alarm fuse:
Wait for 5 seconds then place fuse back:
Turn the ignition on/off 10 times finishing with off:

Your alarm should now be disarmed

I use to work for remac fitter a few years back and sorry to tell you their isnt a override switch for security purposes. I would suggest you go see an auto electrician.

There are other methods I would explain how to disarm it but being your first post and you have just signed up here, for all I know you could be asking us how to bypass a stolen cars alarm system.


Best wishes you find an awnser to your question.


Cheers

Andrew

Just wondering?
