Do you happen to have a red light that is also a button to the left of the steering wheel?
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
the red light is small and round. it looks like a button, but doesn't depress like a button. I think it's just a light. it blinks when the alarm is going off.
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
yes, the light is to left of steering wheel.

Look at the panel next to the driver's left foot and see if you can find a small toggle switch.

Still there?
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
I'm on my computer intermittently, mostly during the week. I'll look for a toggle switch. I disconnected the battery to prevent it from draining. When I do reconnect it the light still blinks. I cut the alarm wire as the noise was crazy loud and I couldn't think. light still blinking. I don't want to tow it (no $) thanks for you help.
