Neeed To Disable Car Alarm on 2001 Mustang

I am not a proficient car mechanic, but I can usually repair basic car problems without too much grief. My son's 2001 Mustang will persistently alarm if the doors are locked, and occasionally alarms for no apparent reason. How do I disable the alarm entirely? It is not a custom alarm, but is the one built into the vehicle. I am hoping to find where to cut/splice wiring that will disable the alarm system.

Thanks

I would say thats going to have to be done with reprogramming the PATS module/system. There's no button to press or switch to flip.

How about a fuse? Or just cut the siren wire.

Sounds 'fishy'. Doubt anyone here will tell you how to steal a 2001 Mustang.

Re: 'Sounds'fishy'' -- I appreciate the reply, but I assure you this is a legitimate problem for a car that alarms only when you lock the doors. Clipping the horn will still allow the lights to flash, so is not a viable option.

The dealer is the only one that has the tools for the PATS system.
