Relist: Inaccurate answer.
I already know what your expert answered. That doesn't work.
How would I know what you know or have tried............?
I need to know how to reset the alarm if the key does not work.
There is NO Reset............You can only Arm or DisArm as I stated above........
How do you disable the system permanently?
You "cannot" Disable "Permanently, as many components are connected thru the Alarm & the Alarm is part of the PCM
You can find the DARK GREEN / PURPLE (-) wire located in the Driver Kick Panel / Door BootGround the DARK GREEN / PURPLE (-) wireThis will DisArm the Factory Alarm until the Ground is removed
Will grounding the green/purple wire and keep it grounded, will this let me start the car ?
I can only answer from the info you supply.........YOu have NOT indicated if the "THEFT" Light or Security Light on dash is flashing when trying to start........
If it is, then NO, grounding the Will grounding the green/purple wire will serve no purpose, as the PATS Unit & Key needs to be Tested & Programmed via Dealer Scan Tool
If it is NOT Flashing & the only issue is the Alarm (horn), then yes grounding the green/purple wire will DisArm the Factory Alarm (not PATS) & should allow starting, if there is no other issues
