Just like you, but different
Well I have to confess to really making a hash of this one.
Daughter has a car with a Mongoose Alarm system and a two button remote. We have two, just in case.
The remote button to the car she uses needed the battery replacing, so she said, which you’d think would be within the capability of most parents with a small screwdriver and no fear of taking a small object apart. So here we go. Captain Dad;
It doesn’t work though.
Now in Pdubyahland this means that the remote has forgotten it’s code, right and has to be re-learnt, so I get on the interwebtubes and find out how to learn the remote the code to the alarm.
Print that off, go to car, go through the process, and I can’t get it to work.
And this is where it’s gone wrong.
I’ve managed to arm the alarm, but neither of the remote buttons now work. The car is disabled, the remotes don’t work. The engine is immobilized. It won’t start.
It’s a holiday weekend, anyone that can fix it is on holiday. I’d disconnect the battery to see if that resets the alarm and there are thee outcomes
I’m not really a fan of 1-3 odds, and I can’t see disconnecting the battery option working as when we got the car the battery had been flat for a couple of months.
lesson: Don’t. Just don’t.
