I would say you have two options, You can take it to the dealer and have it disconnected, or you can go to an aftermarket car stereo/alarm store they will install an aftermarket alarm and disable your stock one at the same time, for probably about as much as the dealer would charge to just disable it. First just call the dealer to get a quote on how much that would cost, and then call the alarm place and get a quote.
Thanks,

    Did you need some further assistance, I am not sure why the rating. If you need anything else let me know.

    Well then you should know how to fix it yourself that is nearly a recommendation. Can you uninstall/disable the alarm yourself? If your asking a question like this I assume you can't fix it yourself or you wouldn't have even asked. You can go to an alarm place to, and they can do it for quite cheap and you could put in an aftermarket alarm. I hope you reconsider your rating, as Inappropriate is far from the service I provide.
    Thanks,

The battery keeps dying and the alarm keeps going off. Alarm switch inside car does nothing to stop it.


Does the battery hold charge? Have you load tested the new battery or left the new battery disconnected for a couple of days to see if it is holding charge.
It does not happen often but the new battery could still be the problem.
The other way to find out what is going on is to remove one or two car fuses inside the dash at the end of each day and if the car battery is not flat the following day you have narrowed down the fault.

if you have the original key, go to the driver's door key hole and lock and unlock the door. Do it several times until the alarm goes off. Also you can replace the key pad lock battery.

Battery in the remote died and now the alarm keeps going off when we try to do anything. we replaced the battery in the remote but the car won't start and the alarm keeps going on


When the alarm goes off, it disables the starter circuit. You'll want to have your key fob (remote) checked for proper operation at an authorized Hyundai Service Department. If you inserted the new battery in backwards, the remote will not work. It also needs to be the remote originally programmed for the vehicle.

I have a 93 lexus sc 400. The car alarm will go off randomly once or twice a month. The only way to turn the car alarm off is to disconnect the battery terminals. Any ideas on deactivating the alarm all...


find the alarm box to adjust the sensitivity 9 times out of 10 time the alarm box is located on the opposite side of the engine away from the battery. but if it's a factory alarm you can call the dealer for the location better yet check the owner manual for the location.

I can't turn off the factory installed alarm on my 2005 Rav 4.


yeah. disconnect the battery, put the key in the ignition and turn it to the ON position. leave the driver's side door open, and reconnect the battery. the alarm will chirp a few times while you're putting the battery back on, but this SHOULD work.

you might as well go ahead and take the battery out of the remote for the alarm as well, to make sure its not setting your alarm off as well. you can replace the battery in the remote once the battery is reconnected in the vehicle. the remote might need to be reprogrammed if the alarm goes off again, otherwise its time to go to the toyota dealership!

!!WARNING!! make sure the key isnt in the position to START the vehicle, you just want the key ON. make sure that nothing else in the vehicle is on, and also, be VERY careful when reconnection the battery, as it will spark when it makes its connection. if you have been charging the batter a lot, make sure to give the battery time to cool down, because when car batteries get hot, they emit hydrogen, which is explosive. this IS a risky move, but is the only thing you can do, unless you either install a kill-switch or charge the battery and drive to the dealership while the alarm is going off. sometimes, when you start the vehicle, the alarm will stop, but im assuming this isnt your case.

Have the battery checked for proper CCA rating, low battery will cause issues with alarm system because if the battery is low the alarm system thinks the power is being removed from the vehicle in which the alarm goes off.

1995 ford escort, alarm keeps going off and car wont start


The alarm brain should not be the easy to locate if stock. Put everything as it was. The alarm brain, control, module or whatever any one wants to call it is most likely behind and under the radio possibly on the floor but in that area. That is if it is OEM if not then it should have been installed under the instrument cluster. I should be a small box probably held with zip-ties and it should have all the information, manufacturer, model and wire functions on the brain. If you think he found the right thing then have him look for the red wire that connects to it. It should have a 15amp fuse on the cable. If its taken out this will disable the alarm. What ever he found should say Security, Alarm or something like that. Not door control or anything other.

There is an anti-theft relay that is stuck open. that needs to be replaced. I'm unsure of the location, probably under the dash somewhere. it will be a small, plastic box about the size of a pack of cigarettes.
