You, it is not uncommon for this to be the case with most any aftermarket alarm and/or remote starting. Do you have the FOB for the remote starter? Is the battery strong/new? Sometimes a weak battery will not disengage the alarm /remote start system. As far as disconnecting the system, this of course can be done, but systems are different and installers can install these systems differently. You'd need to get a wiring diagram for your specific remote start system and then trace they wires to where they were connected with respect to the ignition wires under the dash.
