    Default after replacing battery how do you reset the alarm and door lock system.

    Recently replaced battery on the car and when locking the car the alarm does not sound or lights flash like they did before I replaced the battery. Is there a way to reset the system manually or do I have to take it to the kia dealer. Its a 2006 kia spectra.

    Hello loosingtime46@aol.com,

    Have you consulted the owner's manual for your vehicle? In your scenario, the "remote' will lock the doors but the system will not arm. One possiblility (that our resources describe) is that if any of the door or hood switches are not in the correct position when attempting to arm the vehicle's security system (i.e. door open, hood up, etc.), the system will not arm.
