Yes this alarm didn't come with the car from the manufacture like this its an aftermarket piece so just go through all the wiring and cut off the ones that are connected to the alarm box under the dash on the drivers side.Be careful though you don't want to cut off a wire that is needed but if you fallow each wire from the box to where it connects and then cut it you should be fine.

SOURCE: Hello I am Jeremy I have a jeep grand Cherokee and

This is what you need to do: Unground the wire you mention. Close the hood and the liftgate and flipper glass. Close all doors. lock everything out. Wait 30 seconds. Insert the key en either front door or liftgate until the interior light comes on. Next open the driver door. Ground the wire you have mentioned, leave it grounded. Start the engine. That sequence should do it.

Can the car alarm kill your battery but you can start the car but after you turn it off battey died again


sure, if you let the alarm drain the battery, this can destroy any stock battery.
The car batteries are not like golf carts and are not deep discharge rated. (so can be damaged)
so charge the battery, if it wont hold a charge, it is bad.
if it discharges silently, and darkly parked , that is phantom discharge
if is discharges , driving that is a engine charge system failure.
parked over night discharging is phantom discharging.
if the alarm goes off and stays in alarm , then dont use, it.
if the battery is happy with the alarm defeated then the Alarm is bad.

The battery measure 12.6vdc charged,(rested) "voltmeter"
and running measures, 13.3 to 15vdc at idle.

this one tool can solve this problem

Wiring diagram 06 impala


Read the alarm installation manual carefully and keep the support number handy if you have any questions as every alarm manufacturer uses different connection and mounting techniques. Open the hood and disconnect the positive battery cable. Connect the alarm power wire to the positive battery cable and run it to the driver side of the firewall.
Locate an open area in the engine bay and mount the siren, facing the engine to limit water exposure while driving. Run the siren wires to the driver side's of the firewall and feed all of the wires through the firewall and into the dash area of the Impala. Drill a small hole in the firewall if necessary, directly in front of the steering wheel.
Remove the lower dash panel if necessary and mount the shock sensor per the manufacturer's instructions. Locate the power lock relay if the car is so equipped and connect the alarm's power lock module.
Find the starter wire in the ignition harness and attach the start disable relay. Drill a small hole in the dash for the LED light and snap it into place.
Connect all of the wires to the alarm control module by plugging them into the module and secure it as far into the dash as possible with zip ties.
Reconnect the positive battery and test the alarm on the Impala. Adjust the sensitivity level as desired and secure any loose wires with zip ties.

Car alarm resetting


Have you tried unlocking the drivers door with the key? This is a common way to re-set a factory alarm system. If you have an aftermarket alarm there is often a small toggle switch mounted under the drivers side steering column.

The theft alarm goes off at anytime on our kia spectra 2008 - can it be disabled?


Hello, sounds like you have a problem with needing to replace a small rubber hood pad for your alarm button switch that is mounted near the right front corner(passenger side) on the underside of the hood which makes contact with the alarm switch button that is mounted on the right front fender just behind the headlamp housing. Check with your local Kia dealer or even a Hyundai dealer to see if they have a TSB (Technical Safety Bulletin) to have this small rubber pad replaced,it is an updated hood pad that improves better contact with the alarm button to keep the alarm system from going off at random. Since your car is a Spectra,it will be the same as a Hyundai Elantra. The new part number for the rubber hood pad is: 92736-3A000 . You can temporarily disable the alarm system by going to your fuse and relay center just behind the battery and removing the "horn" relay, or unplug the connector at the at alarm switch mounted on the right inner fender well. Note: Your alarm switch and contact pad my also be mounted on the left side as well if they are not on the right side. Hope this helps solve your issue..

  2. Step 2 Read the installation manual that comes with the alarm. Make sure you understand what the instruction manual says. If you purchased the alarm from an automotive store, you can always ask them some basic questions to help you get started.
  3. Step 3 Call the tech support number for manufacturer of the alarm and tell the tech advisor what kind of car you have. Ask what kind of locking system your car uses and what color wire to connect to in order to interface the lock/unlock feature of your alarm,
  4. Step 4 Ask the advisor how to hook up the relay for the door lock feature, what color wire to connect to for the starter disable feature, and how to hook up the relay.
  5. Step 5 Ask how to set up the voltmeter to test the door lock wires.
  6. Step 6 Ask how to access the factory door triggers.
  7. Step 7 Determine where you intend to place the components by referring to the installation manual.

  9. Step 1 Mount the siren to a solid metal surface under the hood. Point the horn of the siren down toward the ground so that moisture cannot collect inside it. Drill a hole through a rubber grommet in the firewall of the car and feed the siren's wire through that hole into the passenger compartment of the car.
  10. Step 2 Connect the alarm's power wire directly to the car's battery. Feed the wire through the rubber grommet on the firewall and into the passenger compartment of the car.
  11. Step 3 Put a fuse on the power wire next to the battery. Check the installation manual for the fuse size.
  12. Step 4 Mount the shock sensor as described in the manual.
  13. Step 5 Drill a hole in the dash where you intend to place the LED status indicator. Feed the LED's wire through that hole and place the double-sided mounting tape to the back of the LED and place it over the hole in the dash.
  14. Step 6 Locate the wires that work the car's power door locks.
  15. Step 7 Connect the door-lock relay to the lock/unlock wires and connect the alarm wire to the relay in the manner described by the tech advisor.
  16. Step 8 Using the advice of the tech advisor, locate the wire that works the courtesy light if the alarm has current sensing.
  17. Step 9 Connect the current sensing line from the alarm to the courtesy light wire.
  18. Step 10 Locate the factory door triggers if the alarm does not have current or voltage sensing.
  19. Step 11 Connect the factory door trigger to the alarm.
  20. Step 12 Find the starter wire on the steering column some inches below the starter switch. Cut the line and connect the starter disable relay. Connect the starter disable wire from the alarm to the relay.
  21. Step 13 Mount the valet switch somewhere under the dash.
  22. Step 14 Connect all the wires to the proper inputs and outputs of the alarm module.
