How to Disable Alarm

Can you offer a frustrated CL owner advice on how to permanently disable the alarm? 2001 Acura CL-S.

I suspect my hood switch is bad. If I'm correct it should show continuity when the hood is open and NO continuity when it is closed ? Anyway , I tried the paperclip trick only it immediately activated my alarm?!

Actually, according to my tech here, that's correct. He says to bend the pin over so the system thinks the hood is always open, and it will not arm.

I suspect there is a problem tih the swith so I unplugged it and so far so good. I believe by unplugging theswitch it is saying that the hood is closed? BUT since it is unplugged it cannot malfunction?

It'll be okay, as long as you don't mind the feature being disabled on your hood.

how to disable alarm with remote?

Hi,

Last week, my 2001 acura cl alarm went bananas (it goes off in the middle of the night so i pulled the horn relay for a temporary solution) and it's driving me nuts. Does anyone know how to shut off the alarm with the remote for good or any other solutions? The alarm is a factory alarm that came with the car.

Thanks
Vinny
