That sounds about right as the injectors are negative triggered from the ECM, you are going to have to find where the alarm was tapped into so it could interrupt the signal from the ECM to the injectors.

thanks tennisshoes would replacing the ecm work i threw all that alarm stuff away


I wouldn't head there yet, you need to check the wiring to and from the ECM, it will onLy take. 1 wire to shut it down. Do you have a shop manual with a good wiring schematic? If not buy a good one like a Motors or Mitchell or you could go to your local library and get a photocopy from their reference manuals. This will take some time so don't get frustrated.
