Can I disarm stock security system

Asked by Feb 10, 2017 at 09:53 AM about the 1999 GMC Jimmy 4 Dr SLE 4WD SUV

Question type: General

I have a 1999 gmc jimmy and I was
wondering if I can disarm or shut off the
stock security system. I do not have
keyless entery and my security light will
blink all the time and it is draining my
battery down so bad that I have to jump
start every morning.

First, no you can not disable the security system. Second, the blinking security light uses such a minute amount of power that it would not drain your battery. Should have the battery checked, may be getting old and have the charging system checked, this keeps the battery charged up. If the battery is loosing power other than these reasons, then look for a light that is left on, interior, glove box, under the hood. If you do not find anything there then a parasitic draw test would have to be performed to figure out what is drawing on the battery.
