Don, thanks for the response. Do you have more information, or pictures, on how to remove the lower driver dash, and what the alarm module looks like, what tools I'll need, etc? I was hoping for something more descriptive, so I'm not guessing and spending time on the wrong stuff. I'm not a mechanic, but given a decent set of instructions I can complete most jobs. Any more detail would be most appreciated.
