Re: disable the factory alarm 96 z28
Ok, Well the alarm I bought, is a thousand times better than the factory alarm they had back in 96. The reason I upgraded is because I watched a friend of mine hot wired his Camaro because he lost the keys. It took only a few minutes. The vats bypass is a joke now that they sell on ebay little boxes that plug into the system and you just dial in 1 through 15 until the security light goes of. Plus the features of the new alarm make it worth the hassel of trying to figure this out. I know b franker puts alarms in these cars and has a great tutorial but nothing about the factory alarm. My stock alarm would go off when nothing was touching the car and wouldn't go off when I saw the neighbor kids climbing on my car. So I am kind of stuck between a rock and a hard place. I have the after market alarm installed and it works beautifully. It's a viper pke with push start and window roll up module plus it turns my smart phone into a two way remote that lets me know if someone is messing with my car. Someone said that it can be disabled through the pcm. I don't know if this is true but I do have access to the tech 2 and just put a new pcm in the car and updated to the latest rom for it. Oh and the latest rom for these cars includes a "sonic boom elimination at 55mph" so if that interest anyone. I actually preferred the noise the exhaust made at 55.
