The alarm is set right behind the headlight switch within the dash. Pull out the light switch and unplug it. The tricky part here is u most probably have to get ur arm way up inthe from under the steering column. To know with box is the alarm, u can actually hear and feel it clicking. Its roughly the same size as a deck of cards. Once u remove it, cut the 2 big red wires and connect them together. U must connect them in order to bypass the alarm. Good luck.

My alarm is activating itself. How can I permenantly disable the alarm? I've had to do it before but I can not remember which fuse we removed.

When you close the door, the alarm will arm itself even if you do not set it. When you open the unlocked door, the alarm will sound.
