My alarm button (key chain) if finally broken after 13 yrs. I really don't want to take it to the dealer to fix, I just want to disconnect the alarm. How would I do that? I pull the fuses, but it won't work. What do I need to look for to dismantle the alarm so that I can drive the car without it going off and open it manually.

Insert your key into the ignition. Turn the key forward until it can go no further, without starting the vehicle.
Press and hold the "Valet/Override" button located under the
dash. Hold the button until the blinking LED light on your dash is
solid. Switch your "Valet" button to "Off" if you have a button labeled
"On/Off." Your alarm should now be reset. If you wish to enable the
alarm, repeat these steps to turn the alarm back on.
Remove wires from your battery if you wish to temporarily
turn off your alarm. Disconnect the wire connected to the main power
source to permanently disarm your alarm. Trace all wires connected to
your battery and disconnect them. If you have no familiarity with your
vehicle's wiring, you should take your vehicle to a neighborhood
installer to disconnect the wires for you.
Go to e-bay and type in either or both of the alternators, and after searching a few of those offered for sale, you will see a list of all the different cars and models they fit. At accordingly. Be blessed.
Ground the a and b terminal of the aldl. Turn the ignition key to the on position, do not start the car. The check engine light will flash two digit codes. Example.....flash pause flash, flash, flash would equal code 13.
The tabs that hold the button in are probably broken. The button on my 95 Trans Am had the same problem. Mine was broken in a way that let me use a zip tie behind the button to hold it in place. I'm pretty sure the button is available from the dealer for under $25 if you wanted to replace it. Pretty straight forward replacement. Few screws (7mm head) and a wire connection.
Is this a factory installed alarm system? If so, unlocking the driver door with the key will allow the car to start. If not then you will have to remove the aftermarket alarm system to start the car.
If you have a factory alarm system you can get a new FOB (key chain alarm button) from a ford dealer, but it must be programmed using a scanner , before it will work in your vehicle.
Sometimes the manufacturers use the same main harness for multiple vehicles. Check part number with dealer on both harnesses. If they are the same, likely you will only need to change the engine harness & computers.
