The Cobra 7777 or 4T7777 as it is official titled is the remote control part number for Cobra’s older generation car alarms. I have noticed that I get a fair amount of traffic to the website from people searching for “Cobra 7777 alarm” so figured it would be helpful to write a blog entry to clarify that the 7777 is a Cobra remote and not an a alarm.
For a full list of Cobra remotes that are available in New Zealand visit the Cobra page of the Obsessive website.
The battery in the 7777 remote is a CR2032. If upon changing the battery the remote fails to work then you should stand next to the car and hold down both remote buttons for around 10 seconds to reactivate it. The remotes LED will flicker rapidly during this process. Keep holding both buttons until the LED stops flickering then release both buttons. The LED should now be on constant, press the larger of the two buttons and the remote should now be re-synced.
Note: This procedure is not to program the remote to the alarm, but to re-synchronise it.
The 7777 works with the following Cobra alarms:
AB7928 (Thatcham Cat 1)
AK3198 (Thatcham Cat 2 to 1)
AK3193 (None Insurance Rated Alarm)
1046 (Keyless entry system)
Battery part # CR2032
NOTE: If there are other Cobra Alarms that you know the 7777 works with then please leave a comment and I shall update the post.
