Grounding the purple / green wire will permanently disable all alarm functions: (thanks alltech alarmman)

I found the elusive Purple and green wire by:

2)remove the plastic trim that extends along the floor by the door and up toward the fuse box.
3)pull back the plastic trim that runs along the door entry.
4) pry up the black wire track top.

6) cut away the electrical tape to spread open the wires inside.
7) find the skinny purple, and almost yellowish green wire.
8) splice in a 2 foot section of wire, and run it back to the green grounding bolt exposed in step one.
9) replace trim,

Alarm goes off for no reason. No longer have alarm button.

First make sure your battery isn't dying. Batteries discharge more frequently in the summmer because the distilled water in the electrolite evaporates in the heat.

Next since you don;t have the cliker I would disconnect the Alarm
horn . Its probably the cheapest way out.

My 2003 ford explorer, alarm goes off for no reason, horn blowing, light flashing. help

Adjust the sensitivity of the alarm system.

It may be too sensitive and is being set off by the glass breaking sensors.
loud noises usually set this off if it is too sensative.

Drivers door does not lock

you will have to remove the door panel, check for a disconnected linkage or a broken door latch, sometimes it just needs cleaning and lube, good luck.
