Under the drivers side dash board, pretty much directly behind the fuse panel, you'll see a lot of wire that seem out of place and a black box zip tied up there. There's a huge white connector going into the black box. Just pull it out. That's it.

If you can't get it out, cut the zip ties that hold the black box in place, that way you have a little more wiggle room.

To reset it, you can probably just unhook the battery for like 10 seconds. Or just unplug the module like I said for a few minutes.

update

When i was having problems with My alarm, i figured out after i stripped out the terminal connector that goes on the battery that a poor connection and corrosion were causing all the alarm problems.

A simple fix that caused alot of headaches
