You cannot dissable the alarm permanently but you can reset it. That vehicle comes equiped with a VTSS Module (Vehicle Theft Security System). Locate it under the dashboard, left side, just the place you put your left knee while sitting on the driver's seat. Underneeth, the module has three connectors. One of them is square shaped. No need to unplug any, jus locate a violet wire with a black stripe, pinch it for a fraction of a second with a sewing pinch connected to a good ground. That will instantly dissable the alarm. What you have just done is what the door key switch does every time you unlock the vehicle from the outside by using your key. If you need to always use this procedure for disarming the alarm, then there might be a faulty swich sending spurious signals to the VTSS. The switches to inspect are the four doors open switches, liftgate open switch and hood open switch (this last one is a mercury one located on the base of the lamp that lights the engine compartment when the hood is lifted, it hangs from under the hood). Instead of wanting to disable the alarm permanently you can not arm it. You do that by always locking the doors manulally either by sliding the locks or by using your key to lock the vehicle from the outside. Do all this without moving the door lock switch levers that are on each front door.
