If you can see the actual alarm module you should be able to trace the wires to a few fuses. You'll be looking for the smaller red or yellow wire. There hould be a larger one also, probably the one you cut before. Try taking the fuse out of the holder on the smaller wire. If the car won't crank then, you probably have a ignition shut off relay, which can be a little more difficult to remove. Let me know if this helps :)

Whick fuse do i pull for the alarm to stop lights draining the Battery. I have a 52 plate clk 2.7 diesel

Sounds like an after market alarm. If so, take it out or replace it. When I get cars like yours or won't start. If I see an aftermarket system, I tell customers that I won't work on them till this is out of the cars system. 99% of the time, The car works.

'98 Ford Mustang battery drains

Ideally, purchase a new keyfob and have it programmed by Ford.
Batteries will go flat after none use for a month or two because the alarm draws power all of the time.

My alternater and battery test good on my 01 kia spectra.But, After putting the fully charged battery in my car, it slowlky died in on ly a few blocks drive?

Connect an ammeter in series with the battery positive terminal and battery positive lead. With ALL systems off, including alarm, door lights etc and with doors closed you should have a reading of only 0.03 amps.I'm guessing that yours is higher as it sounds like you have a parasitic voltage drain.If indeed it is higher, then disconnect any alarm system first and check your amps again. Every time you disconnect something, go back and check your amps.Once you get your amp drain back to normal, then you have managed to disconnect the system responsible for the high current drain.
The most likely candidates are always the alarm system, then stereo, then GPS tracker. After that you will have to start pulling more fuses, one by one and letting the vehicle rest for a few minutes after each thing is disconnected before taking a reading.
BTW, if it is the alarm which is drawing a high amp drain, then it is more often than not the alarm siren back up battery which has failed.
Good luck.

99 intrepid hard to start and or cutts out, what is my solution

n most 90's and up Dodge/Chrysler vehicles, you can try to pull codes from the car's computer as long as you still have a charged battery. Put your key in the ignition, and turn it forward, but not far enough to engage the starter. Turn the key back to the Off position, then forward, back and forward again. In early 90s vehicles, the Check Engine light is going to flash a number of times. Often, code 55 means it is completed.
In mid and late 90s vehicles, you will often get a 4 digit code that may help you diagnose problems starting, mostly checking the eletrical, ignition and sensor systems.

All the electronics on my 99 intrepid are going haywire and now the car won't even turn over and the battery is dead

Could be that you've lost your ECM ground or that the ECM itself is shorting out or failed altogether

Where is starter located on 2004 chrysler pacifica???

Look around the "back" of the engine beside the transmission. The Starter connects to the flywheel to start the engine.
If you are replacing the starter you may want to consider doing this first;
) Have the charging system checked. Many auto parts stores and Sears will do this for free.
) Clean the battery terminal/connectors.
) Check the wiring from the battery to make sure it's good.

If you replace the starter yourself;
) Does your car have an anti-thief alarm ? If so find how to reset it if the battery is disconnected. Some alarms will shut down the car if the battery is disconnected !!
) Disconnct the wiring to the starter.
) Remove the bolts holding the starter. Remove the harder one to reach first.
) Pull out the old starter.
) Put it the new starter.
) Bolt the new starter in. Put the easier bolt to reach first.
) Connect the wiring to the new starter.
) Re-connect the battery.
) If necessary reset the thief alarm.
) Take the old starter back for a core charge refund.
