fuse listing are in operator manual with car, but you may disable something else with it, just get ahold of the brown/violet wire going in the driver door somewhere maybe the rubber boot at hinges and ground it with ground wire , never have an alarm till removed.no one pays attention when they go off anyway

Best Answer
