Expert:  Peter Bagley replied 29 days ago.

didn't ask for a call yet. if it's aftermarket there will be two areas for fuses, one near the battery the other behind left lower kick panel in a bunch of wires. If it has an imoblizer that means it's wired so it won't start the engine if it is triggered

To DISARM the system:
Press and release the top REMOTE CONTROL button once again:
The PIEZO "CHIRPER" will chirp twice.
The exterior (tail/marker) lights will flash twice.
The interior lights will turn on for 30 seconds or until the doors are closed (as long as
the dome light switch is set to the "DOOR" position). The doors will unlock (if the
vehicle is equipped with power locks).

Note: The PIEZO OPERATION MODE is factory preset to "ON".
