How to Disable a Clifford Alarm System

by Jennifer Patterson

There may be occasions when you will need to disable your Clifford alarm system. It is necessary to know the steps to do so, in order to prevent any inconvenience when it's time to disable it. The Clifford alarm system is a popular security system for vehicles with features such as automatic engine disable, code hopping, passive arming and starter kill. Disabling a Clifford alarm system is a simple process that can be done in a matter of minutes.

Determine the location of the valet button in your vehicle. The valet button is installed in a discreet location in a vehicle. When the Clifford alarm system is installed, the installer generally provides the location and the number of times the button should be pressed.

Put the key into the ignition and turn it to the "ON" position, then quickly turn it back to the "OFF" position.

Press the valet button -- a small black button -- based on the number of presses for your vehicle. The number of presses is normally between one to five times. This should be done quickly after turning off the ignition. Press the valet button 15 seconds between each press to disable the alarm system.
