The only thing you can do it take it to a dealer. They are the only ones that have the proper test equipment to check and diagnose the system.

Good morning,

You cannot disable the system. That is programmed into the system and there is no way around it.

The best thing you can do is call a locksmith to come to you. He can program a new fob and reset the security system for you.

He most likely could not program it with active codes and apparently you have codes.

Can you give me the codes?

Okay, you are stuck right now. You are going to need to have it taken to a shop that can read and repair the codes along with reprogramming your new fob.

Alarm went off awhile back during big storm. Did not even know I had an alarm as I have no clicker, etc. Finally disabled horn and have not had any problems until last night (although anti theft light flashes on dash quite often) got in last night all lights etc, came on but would not turn over. Lights flashing on and off, neighbor came and finally got lights to quit. Said my battery terminals and cables toast? Changed positive terminal. Completely drained ever since. Nothing, tried to jump. I was told I have a direct short is doing something on end of other cables to other vehicle while trying to jump. Told I need to have the anti theft disabled? Please help I am at a loss.

Looks like you will need to have a transmitter programmed. That will be to disable the system. Check out the diagrams (Below). Please let us know if you need anything else to get the problem fixed.

Okay, so you have no security or theft light on at all? Does it come on and go off after about 10 seconds?

Does the starter engage?

Okay, so the engine cranks over.

Can you hear the fuel pump run?

When you crank it, does the tachometer move up a little showing RPM?

Okay.
I attached a diagram of the system for you to view. Do you have a test light or voltmeter to do some checks?
