WK - Factory Alarm Disable

Does anyone know if there is a way to disable the factory alarm on the WK (2006)?

My key fob isn't working (not locking/unlocking, etc) and obviously isn't able to remotely disable the alarm. So for now, I'm having to unlock the doors manually with the key, have the alarm go off, and immediately start the car to shut the alarm off. Sucks.

I don't have my backup key fob (long/stupid story) and am down to this last key. I have had to re-solder the battery holder back to the circuit bored, but the remote worked fine after that (few months ago). I replaced the battery this morning, so that is not it. I'm going to remove the solder and re-solder again, but I fear this is not the issue.

Anyways, I'm really hoping someone knows how to disable the factory alarm in the mean time.

Thanks!

Re: WK - Factory Alarm Disable

Could I pull the horn relay or the horn fuse...?

Any repercussions of doing that? Besides losing the ability to honk...?

Will the alarm system be screwed up, or merely going off, but not audibly. And of course when the car is started, the alarm is automatically disabled.

Thoughts?

Thanks for the reply Rob!

I saw that too, but it says 2007-2009... I don't see that same fuse description any where else

Re: WK - Factory Alarm Disable

Well what do ya know, it worked!

I hope this doesn't screw anything up with the truck, but I don't think it will. I made sure it started, and everything else worked.

Thanks Rob!

Re: WK - Factory Alarm Disable

On that note did you check all your fuses to see if one was blown for your door locks?

Re: WK - Factory Alarm Disable

Well, I spoke to soon. I went to Lowe's to pick up a new soldering iron (a much better one, lol) and I used my key to unlock the door, opened the door, and honk honk honk... ugh.

Kind of a moot point because a fresh soldering apparently did the job and the remote works now. The previous solder joint looked solid to me, but I guess not. Hopefully this works.

Thanks for the help!

*Timmy, the locks still worked on the door switch (electronic), so it wasn't an issue with the locks - thanks for the input though!*

Re: WK - Factory Alarm Disable

I bought the pen sized butane torch from Homedepot, has several attachments for soldering. I luv it because its portable and can use it outside, with just a lighter needed to get the flame going. Was fairly cheap too, and the butane fuel is cheap too. The torch part itself runs hot enough where I could melt sheets of lead together with it, but has attachments where i can do fine cuircut board soldering also. Good investment IMO.

Yeah I saw that, but I wasn't sure about it. Good to know it works well for future reference.
