ALARM WON'T DISARM

Ford Explorer

I have a 1999 ford explorer 2wd 5.0 4dr.86000mi. After unlocking doors with remote alarm goes off when door is opened. This is the factory alarm system. Is there a way to diconnect the alarm altogether?

Which system do you have, PATS or active? Or both?(Not sure if this is available). Does your key have the chip(pats)? If you have the active, make sure all your door switches and such are not hanging up, may have to have it diagnosed by knowledgeable person, this system can be checked with a scanner capable of reading pid's and so forth, also the ngs tester. There's a couple of modules, rap and gem, that also play a part in this sytem, check all the easy stuff first. You may have to have someone look at it, without the correct diagnostic routines, may be hard to figure out. Hopefully it's something simple. Does the keyless entry system still work? You can try unhooking the battery + cable and re-installing it.

You asked if the ignition had the chip remote-it does not. The keyless entry does work as does the panic alarm button. Just can't disarm with remote. Thankyou.
