security system? - car won't start Sign In

UnimpressedMy 1999 Altima GXE did this:
Yesterday when I turned off the car I noticed the security system was beeping, but I couldnt find a reason so I just locked up and left it like that.
This morning I couldnt unlock the doors, but I could open the trunk. I finally figured out I had to turn the key in the wrong direction on the passenger side to get in. The drivers side lock still doesnt work.
There's no power for anything, when I turn the key nothing happens. There's no reason why the battery should be dead except if the security light and beeping noise stayed on all night.

Is there a security system reset button ? What is happening here and how do I fix it? I bought the car used at the end of July - as is, no repair records. Up till now it has run beautifully. Please help.

There's usually a permanent override OFF button hidden. Email me for the likely location as I don't want it on the web. If you can find the original installer or papers that would help.

If it were mine I'd remove the whole thing but if you think it is needed for you get it straightend out, T

hi there I have 1995 buick roadmaster, the pass key light keeps coming on when driving, the car won't start all the time do to the light, you have to wait 5 mins, sometimes the car wont start and the pass key light won't come on, the mechanic is pulling his hair out, what about the crankshaft sensor, and can you bypass or shut the pass key system off. thankyou brad
