My anti-theft system was going off and the truck would not start...I was frustrated, but to turn it off you simply have to use your key and unlock your drivers side door. I do not have the remote or the keyless entry code since I purchased the truck used. If it has the keyless entry on the driver's side door, punch in the correct number to unlock the door and the system should be disarmed. Open the tailgate door and in the left panel open the jack panel and inside there is a module with 2 plugs. This is the Keyless module, disconnect the right one and you have it..

To disable the door lock alert on a 1997 Town and Country, locate the fuse panel underneath the steering wheel and disconnect the orange and white wires. Then, unplug the alarm system.

Assuming the switches are still working, the factory alarm should shut off if you unlock either the drivers door or liftgate with the key.

Type your answer here... Yes, it's for the alarm if the hood is jacked open.

Normally, putting the key in the drivers side door lock,turning to the left, then to the right all the waywill unlock and disarm/reset the "OEM factory"alarm system.

Get a repair manual for your truck, because you will need to cut the wires out of the ignition switch, and bypass the alarm.

If you do not have the car's remote.. lock all doors using the diamante key on the driver's side. THen unlock all doors using the key.

If your key fob is not working and every time you try to start the car the alarm goes on try these steps: (These work on my '99 VW Jetta) 1. Unlock the door (so you can get in, of course...) 2. Open the trunk of the car (these will disable the alarm). 3. Now you can start the car. 4. Make sure to close the trunk (unless you're in for some adventure :p) rotate the key counterclockwise in the drivers side door it will unarm the alarm.
