How to disconnect the alarm


Depending if it is a aftermarket or a factory alarm, they should all have fuses that can be removed. By removing the fuse, you may lose your keyless entry option. Most aftermarket alarms have a siren that is usually mounted under the hood in the engine compartment area. I've seen where people have cut the wire going to the siren to disable it but keep the power going to the alarm system to keep the keyless entry still functional if it came with the alarm system.
Factory alarms usually use the existing horn for the alarm. If that is the case, you might need someone who is experienced to disable the circuit so that the horn will not sound if alarm goes off but the horn will still be functional when needed. Hope this helps.

My car alarm comes on randomly and I would like to disable the alarm.


The easiest way to disable the alarm is simply to cut the power wire to the alarm horn. When you have more time, you can try to locate the actual power wire to the alarm, which is usually hidden so thieves can't find it.

92 Toyota 4runner truck was running perfectly fine Later in the day went to start and the alarm just started going off and wouldn't turn off. Truck won't start even with keys turned in igniti


The alarm system somehow got activated , this is usually because the battery becomes discharged or disconnected try doing this:
Remove the key from the ignition
disconnect the negative battery terminal
put the key back in and turn to ON
exit the truck and leave door open
reconnect the battery terminal
get in and leave door open, if the alarm horn stays off it should start.

Factory installed alarm keeps tripping itself and causing my van to not start.


Its better you reomove the installed alarm you dont have to remove and restore everything just 2 things the ignition that has be interrupted and the factory alarm in the hood just cut the alrm horn wire. For the ignition you will have to go under the console and remove the panel to access where they have interrupted the original wire. Identify the the ignition wires there you will see where they have splice a wire to a relay match thhe colors that they interrupted and restore that wire (its a 4 wire relay) use a but connection and ensure it does not fall apart start the car if the alarm horn goes off just cut it(NOT the car horn)cansmo_110.gif

The car alarm goes off often and for no apparent reason. I would like to just unhook the alarm.


This is going to be hard without a picture but bear with me go under the dash there you need to find the alarm relay then find a small transducer with those found find its ground you wil be able to identify it cut it. or better yet disconnect the transducer you find a small 4 X 3 inch box it wire is aftermaket black tape disconnect it, or cut it with engine off key off , then find where they tap in to the ignition wire you will see where your wire started and got cut and when into a relay find the other half cut it and restore the ignition where it was bypass, find you sucessfully eliminated the alarm cut the alarm horn or bettery yet just remove the alarm fuse and cut the alarm horn you will see it when you are under the dash manufacture wires are nice a clean and aftermarket alarm installer there wire is messy wrapped in tape on tape

I have a 2008 chrysler 300 and I installed an alarm system. I connected the factory horn to the alarm using a relay. I installed a relay under the hood and got the power from the battery the problem is...


you have either a blown fuse or the factory wire harness isnt connected to horn first check fuse owners manual will have location and description of fuses if ok retrace your steps when you hooked horn to new alarm you disconnected wire at horn or you cut the wire to access horn wiring

The security system wont disengage and let me start car what do i do?


This depends on if its a factory alarm or not,if its factory then try using the key to unlock the door if it doesnt work on the driverside then unlock the passenger side door this is due to a bad door lock switch on the driver door, if its aftermarket you nned to look under the dash and find the wire for the starter coming down the steering column, you will see a yellow wire i belive the wire will be cut in half and connected to two diffrent wires, cut it and connect it back together and it will start you will then need to look further for fuses on alarm wires and remove the fuses as the alarm module is bad, a good way to tell its a factory alarm is the trucks horn is the siren, if this is the case then its probably factory and door switch is bad in the lock so try pass/side lock.hope this is helpful.

Car alarm keeps going off


Jerome, look for the blast horn see if can can determine which wire is power and disconnect it, should be silent then, you will have to disable the alarm once power is restored, then reconnect and reset if desired.
