Default Alarm goes off. How do I disable it

I have disconnected the wires from the exterior door lock, I have installed a bypass for the starter interrupt relay, I have jumpered the wire for the Alarm module relay behind the center dash control panel...
What else can I do to disengage the thing

What year?


If 84-89, unplug and remove (if desired) the alarm module. That'll do it.
If 90-96, I don't remember if it has a stand-alone "theft" module, I don't think it does. The alarm logic is within the CCM. I'd try connecting the lt grn disarm wire from the door lock to ground at all times. That should keep it from arming, but I've never tried it myself.

it's a 89.. you are talking about the module behind the glove box area (that is IF there was a glove box)

Yes, it is in the area above the passenger's feet.


Please double-check me on the association between the VATS and the Entry theft alarm. My recollection is hazy. I THINK the two systems are separate except the theft module (if triggered) tells the VATS module not to allow fueling/cranking. So if you remove the theft module, the VATS module will still enable fueling because you have the key bypassed, it is still present, and sending the required fuel-enable signal to the ECM.

Is a C7's alarm sensitivity adjustable?
