Hello and thank you for your question,

The flash triggering of the alarm system is in most cases caused by a failing door ajar switch and in order to determine which one you will need to start with having the system scanned. That being said the system can be disabled and you will still have use of the remote key less entry system. Would you like to by pass the system which will stop the alarm from sounding?

To do so you will need to install a jumper wire in the RAPS module. I have enclosed the steps in the link below as well as the module location. Follow the steps in the link and that will keep the alarm from sounding but you will still be able to use the remote entry.
