Hi, my name is***** your mechanic automotive expert, and I will be happy to assist you today. In some cases, I may need more information to assist better. I apologize for any delay.

Dear customer, in old vehicles, the alarm systems were an independent module that was simply disconnected or its fuse was disconnected to disable it. The problem is that today the alarm system is integrated into the vehicle's computer, therefore it is not possible to disable it as such, unless a reballing or programming procedure is carried out on the computer, what is recommended in this kinde of case is to verify the status of the alarm key fob because many times the problem is that the battery has simply discharged. we recommend checking the state of the electrical voltage of the main battery of the vehicle because having a discharged battery causes certain electrical systems to work incorrectly such as the alarm. Another very important factor to verify is through a diagnostic equipment, the operation of the alarm can that you simply need to reset the factory data to leave the initial settings of the alarm and correct any type of programming problem that you may present

My goal is to give you the best advice i can, I hope to be helpful, if you have any doubt or want to know anything else please do not hesitate to reply back.
Kind regards, Sebastian.
