IS THIS A FACTORY ALARM OR AFTERMARKET? IF ITS AFTER MARKET YOU MAY NEED A NEW CONTROL MODULE. THE BUTTON IS JUST BY APSSING THE WHOLE ALARM SYSTEM. MOST ALRMS HAVE A LIFETIME WARRNTY ON THE MODULES ( CLIFFORD DOES) IF YOU CAN FIND DEALER NEAR U

no but sounds like anti theft module has gone bad. if it was installed thru the dealer and not orig equipment its justan aftermarket.find out what kind and call the manf.
