Cobra 7777 Remote

The Cobra 7777 or 4T7777 as it is officially 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 alarm.

For a full list of Cobra remotes that are available in New Zealand visit the Cobra page of the Obsessive website.

Trouble Shooting

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:

Cobra 7777 Remote

AB7928 (Thatcham Cat 1)

AK3198 (Thatcham Cat 2 to 1)

AK3193 (None Insurance Rated Alarm)

1046 (Keyless entry system)

Battery part # CR2032

AT7777 Remote $95.00

Replacement cases available: Details here…

Replacement cases can be found here…

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.

The AB7928 and 1046 keyless entry system are still available in New Zealand. The AK3198 and AK3193 have been replaced by the AK4198.

    Hi Malik

    The alarms that operate from the Cobra 7777 remote are not designed for remote engine start. You would need to use another brand.

    If you’ve tried everything mentioned in the post then I’d suggest getting the remote tested to see if it is still transmitting. I have a tool that does this as should most good installers.

    I have tried to change battery while the is closed and now the alarm is staring. What I should do?

  9. Julian says:

    Try pressing the disarm button on the remote!

    Cobra claims the 7777 can be used with the alarms 1046, 3193, 3196, 3993, 3198, 3998, 6402, 6422, 7908, 7928, 8165, 8185, 8186, 8188, ” and others”. I don’t know what all those are, but the 6422 is a Thatcham cat 1 alarm that was an option on the first Lotus Elise (and some Subarus?).

  11. Julian says:

    Hi Ian,

    You are right. There were a large number of alarms this remote worked with. I only listed the models sold here in New Zealand as it’s my target market.

    The Lotus Elise was fitted with a Cobra and I’ve covered that here:

    Not sure about Subaru? Most had Sigma systems from what I remember.

  12. Paul White says:

    how do i order one and how much

  13. Julian says:

    Hi Paul,

    They are $95.00
    Courier is $5.00 anywhere in NZ (excluding RD postcodes)
    You will need your alarms over-ride pin number to code the remote. Feel welcome to call me during work hours if you have any questions.

    Please use the contact form to order one and I’ll email you an Invoice with payment instructions

    hello. just watched the override pin number video. if i cant find that button.. what do i do? it has a touch key with it also

  15. Julian says:

    Hi Paul,

    Do you have your over-ride pin number? It sounds like to have an AB7928 which has a different way to enter the number. Either way, you’ll need it to code a new remote.
    As I said before, it’ll be easiest if you give me a call to discuss it.

    Hi, we have recently purchased a vehicle with a cobra alarm. The fob is in very poor cond. And the large button doesn’t work ( unless you use a small jumper across the micro switch) it’s the 7777 type fob. We will need the new fob, then a reprogram? Thanks.
