I've sprayed it with everything and it's still goes off when I'm driving and sets my alarm off when it's parked, can I just disconnect it some how without having to remove the whole door panel?

kbro, Thank you again for your help

Most lubricants will collect more junk and most cleaners will degrade plastic parts. Now days, those latches aren't meant to be lubricated. R&I the Door panel and latch - R&R the switch.
