How to Reset a Chapman Car Alarm

by Matthew Fortuna

You can program your Chapman system for your car and use the system to engage your ignition from as far as a few hundred feet away. If your system loses the programming, you can reset the remotes to the system in just a few minutes from the car's driver's seat.

Set off the car's alarm by pulling on the locked handle and then enter the car with your ignition key.

Locate the alarm system underneath your dashboard on the driver's side. You can do this by popping off the dash panels and exposing the system around the ignition cylinder.

Turn on your car using the ignition key and press and hold the red toggle switch button on the alarm system.

Wait for the alarm to turn off and the system to emit a chirping sound. The LED light on the system will also switch on to indicate that the alarm is reset and the system is active.
