Try this,I think this will work.Unplug the Remote anti-theft module in the right hand kick panel.It will have 2 connectors,one is 22 cavity connector and the other is 26 cavity connector.
Now best I can tell by looking at the Schematics you will have you take the wires from pin 11 PK/LG and pin 22 PK/YE in the 22 pin connector and pin 1 LG in the 26 pin connector and run these to a ground.Then leave the RAP module disconnected. This should keep your electric door locks working and disable the alarm.

    Try it with just the module unhooked and don't run the wires to ground.That may cause the relays to activate as soon as you ground them.

Theft Deterrent Arm/Disarm Modes
Important: Although mode 2 provides increased security, the content theft deterrent system disarms only by pressing unlock on the keyless entry transmitter. This can pose a problem if the keyless entry transmitter is damaged, lost, or inoperative for any reason while you attempt to disarm the content theft deterrent system.
Mode 1: The system arms when you lock the doors with the keyless entry transmitter. The system disarms when you unlock the left front, right front, or liftgate door with the key or the keyless entry transmitter. The system does not arm when you lock the doors with a power door lock switch.

Mode 2: The system arms when you lock the doors with the keyless entry transmitter. The system disarms when you unlock the doors with the keyless entry transmitter. The system does not disarm when you unlock the doors with the key.

Mode 3: The system arms when you lock the doors using a power door lock switch or the keyless entry transmitter. The system disarms when you unlock the left front, right front, or liftgate door with the key or the keyless entry transmitter.
Changing the Feature Customization Modes
  1. Turn off the IP dimmer switch.
  2. Turn the ignition switch to the LOCK position.
  3. Remove the BCM PRGRM fuse.
  4. Turn the ignition switch to the ACC position. The BCM flashes the fasten belts indicator and sounds the chime 4 times, which indicates that BCM type 4 is installed on the vehicle. At this point, the BCM has entered the feature customization mode.
  5. In order to change the theft deterrent/shock sensor mode, turn the headlamp switch from OFF to PARK and back to OFF.
  6. The BCM flashes the fasten belts indicator and sounds the chime a number of times equivalent to the theft deterrent/shock sensor mode. A transition past mode 4 repeats the sequence starting with mode 1.
  7. Complete the following steps in order to change the theft deterrent arm/disarm mode:
6.1.
Insert the key in the left front, right front, or liftgate door lock cylinder.


6.2.
Rotate the key from the center to the unlock position.

How to take automate car alarm off silent mode


{: ) When armed, the content theft deterrent (CTD) system is designed to deter vehicle content theft by pulsing the horns and exterior lamps for approximately 30 seconds when an unauthorized vehicle entry is detected.

An unauthorized entry can be any of the following with the CTD system armed:
• When any door is opened without first being unlocked using the keyless entry transmitter • After a battery reconnect, if the battery was disconnected with the CTD system armed
Disarming an Armed System/Silencing an Alarm
If system arming has been requested by the power door lock switch or the keyless entry transmitter, it must be disarmed.
Important: Using the power door unlock switch or manually unlocking the doors does not disable the content theft deterrent (CTD) arm mode. Also, disconnecting the battery or pulling fuses does not disable the arm mode, since the BCM stores the CTD mode status in memory.
• To disarm the CTD system in standby mode, perform one of the following: - Press the UNLOCK button on the keyless entry transmitter. - Insert a valid key into the ignition and switch to the ON position. • To disarm the CTD system in the armed mode (non-event) or when activated (during an alarm event): - Press the UNLOCK button on the keyless entry transmitter. - Insert a valid key into the ignition and switch to the ON position Locking the Vehicle Without Arming the CTD System Locking the vehicle may be accomplished without arming the content theft deterrent (CTD) system. Use of the manual door locks or using the key to lock the doors will lock the vehicle, but will not arm the CTD system.

The panic alarm sounds


it sounds like one of your door switches is setting off the alarm. Or you hood or trunk switches.

Anti-Theft -Perimeter The perimeter anti-theft system consists of the following:
  • door lock cylinder disarm switches
  • liftgate lock cylinder disarm switch
  • generic electronic module (GEM)
  • door open warning lamp switch
  • pulse stretcher module (wagon only, is located between the rear license plate housing and bracket)
  • keyless entry remote transmitter
  • hood switch/bracket assembly
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Principles of Operation
Perimeter Anti-theft
The perimeter anti-theft feature provides an audible and visual alarm when unauthorized access to the vehicle is detected. When an intrusion is detected by any door or liftgate ajar switches, or the hood and trunk tamper switches it sends a ground signal to the GEM. When the GEM receives a signal indicating intrusion into the vehicle, the GEM supplies a ground signal to the horn control relay and the park lamps relay. The relay closes, supplying the power which activates the horn and the park lamps. The pulse stretcher module applies to wagons only. Due to the distance between the liftgate disarm switch and the GEM, the disarm switch signal is not present long enough for the GEM to recognize. The pulse stretcher module receives pulse input when switch is turned to unlock. The pulse stretcher module holds the pulse active for about 60ms so the GEM can recognize the signal and disarm the system. The perimeter anti-theft feature does not arm until 20 seconds elapses after locking the vehicle. The perimeter anti-theft device will disarm only when
  • unlock is pressed on the keyless entry remote transmitter.
  • keyless entry keypad code is entered.
  • door, luggage compartment lid or liftgate lock cylinder is turned to unlock.
  • ignition switch position changes to run or start.
Inspection and Verification
  1. Verify the customer concern by operating the system.
  1. Visually inspect for obvious signs of mechanical and electrical damage.

  • Lock cylinder disarm switches
  • Hood switch
  • Luggage compartment lid switch

Car won't start.Theft light blinks,clicking sound under hood and thumping like horn wants to go off.Seems like it's stuck in anti theft mode


anti theft light should blink every few seconds.

try disconnecting the battery for 15 minutes.

Anti-Theft-Perimeter The perimeter anti-theft system consists of the following components:
  • anti-theft indicator (THEFT)
  • remote anti-theft personality (RAP) module
  • hood switch
  • keyless entry remote transmitter
  • deck lid ajar switch
NOTE: The remote entry features will not function when the ignition switch is in the RUN or ACC position.
Up to four keyless entry remote transmitters (15K601) can be programmed at one time.
The keyless entry remote transmitters :
  • Are programmable.
  • Must be set at the same time.
  • House four buttons.
  • House three buttons (Mexico Anti-Theft System only).
Programming
Refer to Section 501-14B.
Inputs and Outputs
The remote anti-theft personality (RAP) module receives input from the following components for anti-theft operation:
  • Hood switch.
  • Deck lid ajar switch.
  • Keyless entry remote transmitter.
  • Power door lock switches (LH and RH).
  • Door courtesy input.
The RAP module distributes output to the following for the anti-theft system:
  • Power door unlock relay.
  • Power door lock relay.
  • Liftgate unlock relay (Wagon)
  • Park lamps relay.
  • HORN relay.
  • Dome lamp.
  • THEFT indicator.
  • Deck lid release.
Arming
The anti-theft system can be armed if:
  • The ignition switch is in the OFF position.
  • The panic alarm is off.
  • All doors are closed.
NOTE: If a door is open, the anti-theft system is prearmed and waiting for all the doors to be closed. The THEFT indicator will remain illuminated for up to 30 minutes waiting for all the doors to be closed. If a door remains open after 30 minutes, the THEFT indicator will turn off and the system will return to a disarmed state. After all doors are closed and the 30 second prearm (continuous THEFT indicator illumination) is complete, the system is armed.
NOTE: If the theft LED does not flash after 30 seconds, check the LED FLASH PID to see if the feature is enabled.
The anti-theft system will be armed when the lock button on the keyless entry remote transmitter is pressed, all doors are closed and 30 seconds have elapsed.
When the system is armed, the THEFT indicator will flash quickly until the system is triggered or disarmed.
Disarming
NOTE: Using a key in a door lock cylinder to unlock is not a valid method of disarming the anti-theft system.
Untriggered System
NOTE: If the driver arms the system and remains in the vehicle, an untriggered system can be disarmed by turning the ignition switch to the ON position.
An untriggered alarm system can be disarmed by pressing the unlock button on the keyless entry remote transmitter.
Triggered System
NOTE: If the hood or trunk are open when the system is armed, it must be closed and opened again before it can trigger an alarm.
An armed anti-theft system can be triggered by the following conditions:
The deck lid door, liftgate, hood or any door is opened using a key, inside door handle, hood release, etc.
  • The keyless entry remote transmitter can activate a panic alarm which is similar to the anti-theft alarm, but does not cause the THEFT indicator to flash.
A triggered alarm system can be disarmed by:
  • Pressing the unlock or panic button on the keyless entry remote transmitter.
  • Turning the ignition switch to the ON position.
Alarm State When Battery Power Is Cycled
When the RAP module is supplied power the first time at the vehicle assembly plant, the system will be in the disarmed state. The RAP module will remember whether it is armed, disarmed or triggered in its non-volatile memory. When the battery positive cable is removed and then reconnected, the system will return to the state it was in just before the battery was disconnected. If the system is in any prearm state, then the system will return to a disarmed state when the battery is disconnected and then reconnected.

Replaced the alternator, now anti theft won't disable


The ignition lock anti-theft switch (19A438) detects if the ignition key cylinder is broken or "slam pulled" during a theft. The ignition lock anti-theft switch is always monitored by the remote anti-theft personality (RAP) module. This allows the alarm system to be triggered in the case that the ignition lock anti-theft switch detects tampering of the ignition key cylinder (even in the event that the alarm is not active at the time).
Refer to the Section 501-14B for more details on the keyless entry remote transmitter (15K601).
The door open warning lamp switch (14018) communicates to the RAP module through the generic electronic module (GEM). This input to the RAP will cause the anti-theft alarm to be sounded if the anti-theft alarm was armed.
The door disarm switches are assembled into both LH and RH lock sets. The door disarm switch must be triggered before the mechanical lock unlocks. This is to prevent the anti-theft alarm from activating when it should have been disarmed.
The RAP module controls the anti-theft system and is the brains of the keyless entry system. The RAP module communicates with the GEM to request that the interior lights be turned ON/OFF with use of the keyless entry remote transmitter, and the GEM communicates to the RAP to inform when the door is opened. Refer to Section 418-00 for inter-module communication.
The RAP module has three wire connectors attached to it:
  • The antenna for the keyless entry remote transmitter.
  • 26 circuit connector (C256).
  • 22 circuit connector (C257).
In addition to the perimeter alarm that uses the door open warning lamp switch, the RAP module also uses the ignition lock anti-theft switch and the autolock/relock feature to prevent theft of the vehicle. For a full description of the autolock/relock system, refer to Section 501-14B .
The THEFT LED is found on the instrument panel between the tachometer scale and the needle pivot point. The LED is illuminated during prearming and flashes when armed or triggered.
Prearming and Arming the System
The system can be armed if:
  • The ignition is OFF.
  • The PANIC alarm is OFF.
  • All doors are closed.
There are two ways to prearm the system:
  • Press the LOCK button on the transmitter.
  • Open a door, press the power door lock button and close the door.
After 30 seconds the system will be armed and the theft indicator in the cluster will flash every two seconds.
Disarming an Untriggered System
An armed system will be disarmed with one of these valid actions:
  1. Pressing the UNLOCK button on the transmitter.
  1. Placing a key in the door and turning to UNLOCK.
  1. Turning the key to RUN or ACC.
The anti-theft alarm can be triggered by the following conditions:
  • The ignition cylinder is damaged with or without the RAP being armed.
  • A door is opened without disarming the armed RAP module.
The remote transmitter can activate a panic alarm which is similar to an anti-theft alarm, but does not deactivate the starter or cause the theft indicator to flash.
Disarming a Triggered System
If the system has been triggered, (the horn honks, the lights flash, and an external starter interrupt relay is engaged), the system can be disarmed by:
  1. Pressing the UNLOCK or PANIC button on the transmitter.
  1. Putting a key in the door and unlocking the door.
  1. Turning the ignition to RUN/ACC (Turning the key to RUN/ACC will not disarm an alarm that has been triggered by the ignition lock anti-theft switch.).

it sounds like you may have an aftermarket alarm system. it can be removed completely from the vehicle. if it is a factory system the key fob or unlocking the door wit the key should disarm the system. if they dont you may want to have a dealer or reputable shop check the system

After market alarm went off and could not be reset. disconnected the system that was tapped into the ignition wires. still no power to anything including lights power locks windows ect. black box mounted...


what year is the Mustang? It does sound like the factory keyless entry module and the clicking is a relay inside of it. In order to disable the clicking, you would need the factory keyless entry remote or the aftermarket alarm system would have to be correctly wired to the vehicle's alarm disarm wire. A professional stereo shop would be able to handle this for you.
