The sound of a car alarm going off accidentally can be quite alarming (embarrassing too, when you discover that it's your car making all that noise). Your neighbours will also be annoyed having to listen to the commotion. If your car alarm goes off on a regular basis, a thief actually breaking into your car may go unnoticed. Knowing how to disconnect your car alarm fuse will help you quickly restore peace in your neighbourhood until you find out how to resolve the problem.

Instructions

  1. 1

    Locate the fuse box containing the alarm fuse. It is usually located on the dashboard by the driver's door, in front of your left knee. You may find the alarm fuse in this fuse box. If you do not find an alarm fuse inside of the car, look in the fuse box under the hood on the driver's side. Your car model may or may not have additional fuse boxes.

  2. 2

    Open the fuse box, and then locate the fuse labelled "Alarm." Look for the alarm fuse on the inside of the fuse box lid, which has a diagram of fuse names and types for your car. Older cars have cylinder-shaped, glass fuses, while new cars have fuses with coloured plastic cases surrounding the fusible links.

  3. 3

    Use the car's fuse puller to remove the alarm fuse. If your car has a fuse puller, it will be located in the fuse box. If your fuse box does not contain a fuse puller, use your fingers, needle-nosed pliers, tweezers or regular pliers to pull out the alarm fuse.

Tips and warnings

  • Read the instructions in the user manual for your car to see how to turn off the alarm correctly. The user manual will also show you where to find the fuse box.
  • If your car alarm continues to go off accidentally in the future, contact your car dealer or a car service technician.
