Default '82 Alarm Dis Arm

One more this morning gang.

I did discover that my alarm did work in my restoration project, after I cut all the wires to the lock pawls.

Horn goes off after you lock doors and try to reopen, assuming that alarm thinks it armed all the time (open circuit). But I have converted the car over to a carb, so I am only using the computer for tranny lock up. Can I just pull a fuse? twist the wires together? Yes, I am a dummy. I have an after market alarm / key less entry ready to install.

Thanks in advance

Does the car start? There's a theft deterrent start interrupt relay under the rear storage liners. There's also a theft deterrent control module there.\

This is it:




The relay has ppl-wht, ppl and blk-wht wires. The module has a whole bunch of wires. There are 2 large ones there, the one with the metal bracket is the wiper control module. The all black one is the theft module. it should have

Here's a complete 82 wiring schematic:

Again, A BIG thanks! I am liking you guys, alot!

Not sure if the module is still there? I'll take a look see later this evening. I have been pondering why the alarm sets, what makes it set. It is when I lock doors via the electric locks then shut the door, if you use the key it does not set. I am going to review all the links you guys posted.

THANKS!

I also have alarm problems. When I use the power locks and then close the door, the alarm sounds. Then I have to unlock the door with the key and re-lock it with the key.

My '81 does the same thing. I believe it is just the nature of the beast.

Years ago upon rewiring the entire car with my own construction, I must have tore out as much silliness as I installed with the DPFI....

serious....

Wow it was a long day, but a good day. Found the module, just yanked it out and all is well.
Funny I see some of my friends use alarms, steering wheel locks. I insured my c3 for $24,000, I leave the keys in it!

Thanks again for all the help.

When you say you yanked it out, did you unplug the module? Are you sure the car starts OK?

I did remove the module. I am not sure how the module disables the starter, but, I have converted mine over to a carb. I only use the computer per say for lock up on tranny. Drove the car last night (boy was I brave, did have a complete set of tools and another friend in his c3 following us) for over 100 miles with five starts and no problems.
