Default How can I disable my 2000 honda civic car alarm?

My battery keeps dying on me and it isn't the battery or the alternator since I've got them both tested. Somethings draining my battery and I think it could be the car alarm because I know it has one but I lost the clicker key to use it so I think it's draining the battery somehow. How can I disable it or disarm it?

Thanks for the help!

i suspect you may have a factory "alarm" or keyless entry. if this is the case, then it's not possible for it to drain the battery.

if you had an aftermarket alarm, you wouldnt be able to disable it without the remote, or putting it in "vallet" mode. most alarms, after the battery is reconnected, will sound the siren and will keep ringing until it's turned off.

an aftermarket alarm *MAY* drain your battery if it's going off all night... which it's not... otherwise you'd have issues disarming it without a remote

the only other way an aftermarket alarm will cause a voltage drain is if there is some sort of short somewhere... which is HIGHLY unlikely considering you had no issue for years. wiring doesnt wear out like brakes. it's good until someone touches it

now... what can be your issue?

i see this every year as the weather gets cold. on a cold day, the engine requires more amperage to start the vehicle, and a battery has less amperage to offer when it's cold. for this reason, this is why most people discover they have a battery problem on the first cold day of the year. person then goes to a mechanic, who installs the cheapest battery he can find(often at the customers request), and the problem either persists, or comes back a month or 2 later. when the customer returns to the mechanic, the mechanic is reluctant to tell the customer the battery is no good because it was just changed. the alarm is very often blamed.

i would suggest you go to another mechanic and have him check that battery. chances are, this is your problem
