JA: Sometimes things that you think will be really complicated end up being easy to fix with Toyota. The Toyota Mechanic I'm going to connect you with knows all the tricks and shortcuts. Are you hoping to fix this yourself?
Customer: 1999 toyota corolla ce
JA: Is there anything else important you think the Toyota Mechanic should know about your Toyota?
Customer: it has been well cared for. i removed the horn fuse so it would not be giving me headaches.
JA: OK. Got it. I'm sending you to a secure page on JustAnswer so you can place the $5 fully-refundable deposit now. While you're filling out that form, I'll tell the Toyota Mechanic about your situation and then connect you two.

HI,

Ok, is this factory or aftermarket alarm system?

Also, does yours just have the alarm system or does it also have the antitheft immobilizer system?

IF this is Factory Alarm, Removal would be difficult, as there is a number of Components that go thru the Alarm Module (Ignition, Lights, Locks, etc)
It would require extensive Rewiring
You can DisAble the Arming by:
Locate the BLUE / RED (-) wire in the Driver Kick Panel / Door wiring harness
Should be a 10 PIN Plug
Ground the BLUE / RED (-) wire
This should keep the Alarm from working......
IF Not, then the Factory Alarm Module is bad & would need replacing

Okay sounds good. I found it. I can't figure out how to pop it off though. And I don't know how to ground wires. If I can't figure it out I will print this page out and have my brother do it. Do you think that is why the alarm goes off spontaneously is because the factory alarm module is bad?
Toyota Mechanic: Don - Mo Lurch, Toyota Mechanic replied 1 year ago

IF your alarm is going off at different times, this can be the Hood Switch or a Door switch.........
IF you do not want to go looking & just DisArm, as you posted, then follow my instructions above
Let me know what you find

I got it popped off with a small flathead screwdriver. The alarm doesn't work and neither do he automatic door locks which is great because they are really annoying every time me or the kids try to get in the car the doors are locked except the drivers. So we can do the old fashioned way - manual lock them. How do I ground it? Thanks Lydia
Customer reply replied 1 year ago
Everything else electrical works so that's good.

Okay this may take me some time. I am not mechanically inclined but I am learning. I WILL figure it out. Thank your for your patience.

I just had a couple years of chemistry and a year of physics. The physics goes over (of many topics) electricity and current etc.
Toyota Mechanic: Don - Mo Lurch, Toyota Mechanic replied 1 year ago

IF you do not want to remove insulation on the wires, use "scotch Loks" to "splice" into the wires

Most Auto Parts Stores will have scotch Loks which are plastic connectors that have a piercing peace of metal inside
You put the scotch Lok over the wire you are splicing into, then insert the end of a piece of wire into the other side of the scotch Lok & use a pair of pliers to squeeze the scotch Lok closed. Which the piece of metal inside pierces the 2 wires, making a connection
Then the other end of the piece of wire is grounded to Frame or Metal part of dash
