My name is ***** ***** I am a professional here at Just Answer. I noticed that your question had not received a response and thought I would see if you still need help with this.I apologize for the delay and I hope I can still assist you with this here.

Try locking and unlocking the doors with a remote or with the key blade itself and see if the alarm then disengages.If this is or was already tried and did not work here let me know so we can continue from here.

If more help is needed, use the reply tab to continue our conversation. If no further assistance is needed, kindly rate my service.You can rate at any time and we can continue to work on your question as this will not close out your question.Keep in mind in some cases it can be difficult to fully diagnose or help repair your vehicle without seeing it and I work on delivering the best possible answer from what I see to work with.

Thanks Pete

Unfortunately I do not show or know of a procedure myself on how to disable or remove this alarm system on your model here.

I will open your question up for others here to see if someone else can assist further on this as there may be others here that may have more info on what to check or do with this issue.I hope you can get this resolved with ease.No need to reply to my last post here unless it is a last resort as it will keep your question locked to me and others will not be able to view it.If you feel you want to continue to work with me on this feel free to reply at any time but keep in mind in some cases it can be difficult to fully diagnose or help repair this without seeing your vehicle.

Thanks Pete

What more do you need
Expert:  gomi_otaku replied 1 year ago.

So- there are two systems on these cars, the "alarm" (which is part of the comfort module) and the "immobilizer" which is part of the cluster.

Are you having a problem with the alarm going off, the car not starting, or starting and dying?

Alarm going off car not stating
Expert:  gomi_otaku replied 1 year ago.

OK- since you don't have the stock radio, that isn't the problem- as the issue there happens when the radio is pulled out and the pins make contact. So you have an issue with your hood latch, one of your doors, or your trunk. You can disconnect the hood latch over on the passenger side, follow the wiring from the latch over to a connector at the radiator support at the top edge. That will take it out of the equation.

Do each of your doors activate the dome light? Put the key in the ignition, turn the dome light to "door open", and open and close each door in turn. With the key on, the light will come on with the door open, and turn off right away when the door closes (with the key not on, the light will stay on for about 20 seconds and fade out)
