Don't mess with the factory alarm. I hate to say it BUT your asking for big problems if you try.

But won´t the new keyless entry trigger the factory alarm?

I am a writer worked in a best usa essay writing service to help students to complete their writing assignments. Keyless entry systems are exactly what they sound like. They are systems which allow you KEY – LESS (no key) entry. This is accomplished by an electric locking motor in the door and a form of a remote device that communicating with the vehicle allowing unlocking of the door remotely.

to put the new alarm on-yes, you will have to disable the factory alarm. depending on the brand of alarm, it may be better than factory. or you could find a kit to add factory keyless entry toy your vehicle, which would keep the factory alarm.
