Pull the fuse that says it's for the alarm- might be under the box cover.

you can hook them up afew ways so tere is no way to tell you how to unhook yours.but you can try one of these two options stop by one of your buddys hose that knows about cars and ask him to clip power wire for you or go to a privetly owend car audio shop (most install anti-theft)and tell one of the installers you will give him $20 to perminitly dissarm your sys by any means possible

On my 1994 Ford Thunderbird, the alarm went off after replacing the battery. Here is what worked to allow me to silence the alarm and get the car started... 1) Connect the positive on the battery, 2) put the key in the ignition and turn to the "on" position, leave the door open, 3) connect the minus terminal on the battery, 4) flip a small switch under the dashboard, 5) turn the ignition on and the car started. Mind you, this was after trying lots of other things. I believe the switch is a valet switch, but I'm not sure. I'm also not sure if the alarm is the factory one, or aftermarket. I suspect factory since the owners manual mentions an alarm system.
