When my alarm is engaged it drains my battery. I replaced my battery in March and again the alarm drained it causing it to sound off. When I put a battery charger on the battery it as well sounded the alarm. It took over an hour hooked up to a friends running car to charge my new battery enough so I could reset the key fob and start her up. (As well when either of the two key fobs has a dead battery the alarm will sounds off.)
Since I only drive accassionally (less than 70 miles a month) this presents a problem as I can't just lock her up without the alarm being set.
Is there any way to disengage the alarm.
Once the alarm is triggered there is no starting the truck, I can unlock the door manually but that doesn't stop the alarm. I keep Xtra fob batteries but would rather disengage the alarm so I can keep her locked without worring about battery drainage.
Do you

Hi,

I don't think this vehicle was offered with an anti-theft system from the manufacturer in 1995. By chance, do you know if it is an aftermarket system?

Let me know.

The key fobs are Autopage. I'm not sure my original reply was sent but there is a YouTube video on these trucks showing how to bypass the alarm "if" it's a certain type, and I just don't know if it's the type the guy mentions or not. But from what I've come to understand Chevrolet integrated these alarms into the whole electrical system and won't tell how to disengage them.

Hi,

I believe that was the manufacturer that GM used. However, if that is what it has, to the best of my knowledge, it can't be bypassed. What is the link for the video?

Let me know so I can watch it and hopefully better help you.
