Hi, and welcome to Just Answer!


There are no provisions to disable the factory alarm system. Your options are somewhat limited.


  • get a new remote key fob ~$100, but you can program it yourself.
  • get a new alarm switch for the drivers door lock ~$50, you have to remove the door panel to replace it, but no programing required. This is the switch that turns the alarm off when you open the door with the key.

If you let me know what direction you want to go (fob or switch) let me know and I'll be happy to help you out with instructions!

so i can't pull a fuse or disconnect the plugs on the alarm? and disable it that way?
Expert:  Leo replied 8 years ago.



I thank you for accepting my answer!


You can pull fuse #10 under the hood, but I think you'll find it has a bad effect on other systems (interior lights / radio / etc..). As will simply unplugging the module.. It effects to many other systems.


They intentionally design the system to be problematic if unhooked.
