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.

How do I disconnect factory car alarm?

Mostly you can't as the alarm and immobiliser is integrated into the vehicle/engine management system.

It might be possible to disable it by getting at the software if you have the skill and a laptop with the right programmes but other than that disconnecting the sounder is all that is possible.
Some of the earlier Ford alarms were operated by a separate module that could be disconnected. Unfortunately these were hidden behind the dashboard and impossible to reach without first removing the dashboard.

How do I disconnect my car alarm?

Can you not lock it with a non alarm key? My polo locked that way, it had the transponder chip to disarm the immobiliser but would not arm the alarm

Alarm keeps going off how do we fix it

It's possible the key fob alarm button is stuck or failed in alarm mode? I don't know how far but move key fobs a long way from the car to see if that is a possibility with the car locked. Disconnecting the battery may have added to the problem. Security thinks the car is vulnerable. Any other components removed? Have the error codes read by an autoparts store.
That may reveal a problem.

Hi ive got a mg ztt how do you disconnect the alarm every time I locked the car today it keeps going off thanks

As the alarm is part of the immobiliser, you can't really turn it off.

Does it give a short beep when you lock it? If so, it's telling you a door/bonnet/tailgate is open. The dash display should tell you which.

It's often one of two bonnet switches which causes random alarms.

disconnect the battery for 1 minute and try again - ---quick fix possible with that---
if that makes no difference then I would like to know exactly what model of alarm and immobiliser the car has - what is the maker + model no/serialno of the keyfob for the alarm, I can get the info I need off that.
also you can check the fuse in the alarm if you know where the alarm is situated, it will have a fuse either on an inline fulseholder on as a spade fuse stuck into its casing somewhere - replace the fuse if blown and try again to start the car ------------ tell me the model no of your alarm and immobiliser if no joy after battery/fuses and I can read up on them and see if I can fix your problem...
