It's probably not the alarm that's causing your problem. If you can get a volt meter, start the engine and connect the volt meter across the battery. When running, the battery voltage should be somewhere in the range of 13.5 to 14 V. Much less and you'll have trouble keeping the battery charged. Much more and you run the risk of destroying the battery and other electrical components. Alternators can drain the battery if one of the internal diodes fail. Also, a battery can be going bad if it's having trouble maintaining a charge. Guessing is never a good idea, since it ends up causing you to spend a lot more money replacing parts and you just end up "HOPING" that the problem is solved. If you test parts, you know when you've found one that fails. Take your vehicle to an auto parts retailer and see if they have an electrical system diagnostic machine. They can usually tell you exactly what's wrong and what to do to solve the problem. Yes, they want to sell you parts, but they also want your vehicle to run right when you're done so that you'll be pleased with your experience. If you can find one of their technicians that actually knows what he's talking about, you can end up figuring out exactly what's wrong. Try Auto Zone, Checker, Schuks, Kragen or whatever other auto parts retailer company that is local to you. don't disable the factory alarm system,it is not likely it's the alarm...when batteries go dead, and you jump the car to start it, the alarm will sound. check the charging system, and have the battery tested at a parts store(free at major chain parts stores) if you feel you must disconnect the alarm, be sure to remove all valuables from the vehicle when parked...that was a lame joke...but it felt good to type it... also, everyone should have a manual for their vehicle, and the library should have a professional manual the reference section, you'll have to make copies of the important sections...good luck :)
