Find the GREEN / YELLOW (-) wire located at the Smart Entrance Control Timer"
It Is A BLUE Module Located Behind The Driver Dash To The Right Of The Steering Column.

Connect one end of a piece of wire to the GREEN / YELLOW (-) wire
Connect the other end of the piece of wire to Ground - (chassis)
This will DisArm the Factory Alarm until the wire is removed

If the Alarm still falses, the the Alarm Module is bad & needs to be Replaced

You asked "How to disable"
That is the answer

 

Removing Fuse or Alarm Unit would disable a number of components, including Ignition & Lights
