    My truck has an alarm that says 'United States Auto Alarm 4000'

    I searched google and it looks as if the company has gone out of business. Does anyone know anything about it? I mistakenly set it off yesterday, and since I have no remote for it, couldn't do anything but disconnect the battery to stop my eardrums from bleeding. I have unplugged the box for the meantime. Any ideas?

    Never heard of them ...

    Are you sure that's the actual manufacturer (as opposed to a rebranding sticker some shop put on the unit)?

    You should be able to order a keyless entry remote by the FCC id numbers on the back of the unit. Do a search for that Id on ebay. You can also do a search for that id on the internet and you may be able to look up programming instructions for the remote, and other helpful information.
    Does your alarm have a small light/button mounted in the cab anywhere? If you can find out how to place it in valet mode you can disarm it. I dont have the same type alarm, but I did a lot of research on mine and found out how to disarm it without the remote.

    The FCC ID is ELVMR5C

    I sent an inquiry to http://www.drdetailshop.com/ and here is the response.

    Now what?!

    There are hundreds of these companies on line. Google "lost alarm remote" and find one you can call. Or just get a new alarm.

    Look under the dash near the hood release and see if there is a switch. If so, turn on the ignition, and when the alarm comes on, flip the switch. Or connect the battery, turn on the ignition and flip the switch while the alarm is going off.

    I did an on line search for ELVMR5C and there is very little information, but you need to go through all the results and read them. I saw where it may be mfg. by a company called Nutek.

    I searched on ebay and no remotes came up for that fcc id.

    If you can get it flipped into valet mode you can just leave it on that setting.

    I saw that, too, but ... As far as I can tell the Radio Shack kit is an entirely different unit.

    The little evidence I can find still seems to indicate it was an alarm unit specific to a retail shop / company - maybe a 'store brand' the company built for themselves or created using someone else's components they transplanted into their own case.

    There are eBay listings for fobs supposedly intended for US Auto Alarm units.
