How to permanently disable alarm system?

I have a 98 Ford Explorer Sport.

I have been having problems for quite some time with my alarm system. Code alarm is the manufacturer of the alarm which is after market.

My problem is this....when entering my explorer through either of the doors about 25% of the time the alarm systems goes off. Once the alarm goes off the only way to stop it is the start the car. I obviously am disarming the alarm before entering, and I even tried to flip the switch under the dash to turn off the alarm but the problem still persists.

I want to fix this problem because it is very annoying. Since I don't want to pay for a new alarm system, and since the explorer getting stoler isn't a big concern, I feel that permanently disabling the alarm might be the best thing to do.

Does anyone know how I can go about killing the alarm system. Is there a wire I can cut? I do know that the alarm's power isn't coming directly from the car battery.

You will need to find the alarm module. Likely, under the dash on the driver's side. Once you find the alarm module you should be able to unplug it. I'm not familiar with a Code alarm but the aftermarkets ones are all pretty much alike. The modules are usually black, about 3.5 inches square and about an inch thick.

Hope this helps.
