Question Disable factory alarm?

I have a 97 and want to disable the factory anti-theft device. It is more throuble than is worth. Many times I come to find my car with the headlights flashing, and neighbors call to tell me also. It wears the battery and I don't want to get stranded this winter.

It is as if the littlest thing sets it off. Luckily it doesn't make noise!

The dealer was no help.

Anyone know if it is as easy as pulling a fuse or cutting a wire?

Have you tried pulling the relays (block on passenger side, 3 relays sit there for the anti-theft system 1 Inhibitor Relay sits in the relay block next to the battery) or disconnecting/pulling the ATS control module (under driver side kick panel, should be behind the ABS module if you have ABS).

Not sure but those would be my first steps...haven't had the opportunity to disable one yet.

Are you sure you have a factory alaram? You said the littlest thing sets it off. Why is that? Factory alarms don't have shock sensors. Only way it would go off is if a door were open. I would reccomend checking your door switches, and your hood switch. I would keep my alarm.

I will double check. I know that one time I set it off when I reached in an open window and unlocked the door. It was thinking someone smashed in to open the car.

It could be door switches. I may just go to a shop that specializes in auto secuity just to have it looked at.

That is what it is supposed to do. The alarm will go off if any of the doors, hood, or trunk is open 1) without the key 2) without the keyles remote 3) without poping the trunk, or hood from the inside
