Is this the Rear-Wheel-drive Brougham? Unlock the door with the key. If that doesnt do it, then unlock the passenger door with the key. I have had the switches go bad in the doors and not disable the alarm when you unlock it. Go to the passenger side door if thats the case. That one doesnt get used very much so they usually work.

When I lock it with the key.It does not alarm,that is the way it supposed to work.But when I put in service with the power lock it alarms ,when the light goes out on the dash to tell you it is in service.It does not do this all the time,but I can't trust it.Also if it does not alarm when I put it in service and I try to open the trunk with the key it alarms, which it should not do.The power trunk button in the glove box does not work.Maby this is effecting it.
Does any have a list of things that will set it off?

Let me do some checking. They will probably move this to the rear-wheel drive section soon. Let me look at the book.

I am still working trying to disable my alarm on my 1987 brougham.So far I found a power source on the left front fender coming from the + post. I removed the nut , it has (4) four wires, two pair one pair of orange and a pair, one black and one orange. I then split the orange and black and put a connector on each. Then I put all the orange back on and tightened up the nut.Now with the black one off my alarm is disabled, also rear lights and interor lights and who knows what else. I plan to put a switch on it and place the switch in by the driver , easy to reach. When I want to start the car, I turn on the switch ,then when I park the car turn the switch off. Result, no alarm blowing in the night ,saves battery from dying and gives me time to look for a permanent fix. This switch can also be used when I am working on the car with the door open for long periods without killing the battery.:banghead:
