If you are just annoyed with the noise, i could suggest that you just disconnect the speaker wire inside the engine compartment.

your alarm has an immobilizer and that would be a great help in case some one wants to steal your car.

but if you really want to remove your alarm, it would be just a matter of locating your alarm and disconnecting the fuse that powers it. it would normally be a red wire and there is a fuse in series with the wire.

you can trace your alarm by tracing back where the speaker wires came from. that box would be the alarm.

    hello nredolphy,

    you can continue this thread by just typing on the add a comment . i saw you created another post.

    anyway you can trace the speaker wire from speaker back to your alarm.

    it is underneath the steering column, you have to remove the driver's side underneath cover. look for a black box about 3 x 4 x 1.

    lots of wire attached to it in different sides.

    look for a red wire with a fuse attached to it. remove the fuse and check the car if it will start.

How do you disarm the alarm when locking the doors ?

I assume you mean that the alarm goes off seemingly randomly and you aren't able to turn it off? If so, insert the key in the door and unlock. Turns the alarm off. My wife had to learn this the hard (and very embarrasing!) way.

I have 2002 Honday Odyssey. Recently, the alarm goes off randomly. Is there any way to permanently disable alarm? Thanks.

No, but your problem might be located in the hood latch. Try unplug hood latch harness(letter A). If alarm return to normal leave it unplug or replace hood latch(letter C). Alarm system should work normally if you leave harness unplug. good luck.

Explorer alarm goes off randomly

There can be many things causing this. In my experience a bad battery can short while the vehicle is parked. Its easy to have tested and Autozone or Oreillys will test your whole vehicle free.

Next possibility would be dirty Battery cables or loose battery connections to the Ground wire. Of course, some vehicles have additional triggers for Glass breakage and motion. Sometimes on cars with Autoload leveling, the Air pump will work to level the car and the Alarm will sense the current draw and vibration and go off.

These Alarms are not foolproof. You have a "Panic" button on your remote. If another person has a device casting this signal your Alarm will pick it up and activate. Your Dealer may have testing equipment for your system to correct the sensitivity of the unit. I hope it is simply a bad battery and your problem will go away with a new one.

youre going to need to get a volt meter and have someone hold the key in the start posistion while someone else goes under the vehicle and test to see if there is voltage at the starters smaller wire. if there is, replace the starter.

Car alarm

try parking in the shade. if that doesnt change it then it is your tamper sensor, i understand that you think there is no movement, but that doesnt mean that electrically there arent slight variations in power. try to lower its sensitivity if the shade thing doesnt work out.

Alarm location

trace the speaker wire from your engine side to the inside of the car.

if you remove the fuse of the alarm and the effect is you can not start the car, then i would suggest that you remove also the immobilizer relay.
