I need to disable the factory installed alarm. It keeps going off randomly. Suggestions?

Unhook the battery, light the car on fire, blow it up, or you could find the wiring diagram and just unhook the fuse for the alarm system. Or just find out where the power input is. If you disconnect the power it might go off though because of backup power module but if you unhook the battery for like 30 seconds and then do it it shouldnt beep at you. Good luck!

The vats system is not working you need to by a by pass. If you remove key shut and wait about 3minutes system should reset and car will start.

Does an 86 corvette have a starter relay? the starter does not work all the time. i have put a new battery and made sure the starter was good.

use a 12v test light and check for voltage on small solenoid wire at the starter while turning the key to start.This will let you know which way to go .There is no relay involved that would interupt this signal to the starter from the ignition switch unless added aftermarket for an alarm system.

Security alarm problem

Do you have the key fob? Alot of alarms will go off if you unhook and rehook the battery. All you should have to do is disable the alarm after you unhook the battery. Is this a factory alarm or an aftermarket one?
