There is no way to bypass the body computer module that manages the alarm system. If disabling the system is the goal, the module must be replaced and disabled at that time, if ever enabled, it cannot be reversed. Without a single fob, the system cannot train another fob or enter into training mode by the owner, the dealer must train at least the first replacement. Costs involved, roughly $100 to train transmitter, and the transmitter itself, which can be $150 from dealer. Replacement keys with imbedded security chip, as well as transmitters can be found on ebay very inexpensively. At least, with this done, you will restore the convenience of remote lock/unlock, trunk and panic as well as alarm disarming. Good luck!

I had the same problem and it was the smallest switch on the key cylinder. I was torn and as soon as I unplug it, it disarmed the alarm. its attached to the back of the key cylinder by a tiny clip. Google this, mind you gonna have to get it from the junkyard. it's discontinued. Mopar Part No.: 4671069SWITCH-CENTRAL LOCKING-KEY CYL
