Hello. I have an alarm system in my 99 Corolla. I lost the key fob a couple years ago, so I have been able to disarm my alarm once in my vehicle by sticking the keys in the ignition, and turning them, then pressing the alarm killswitch under the steering wheel … Well the kill switch button broke and my brother in law removed it, so now I have to disarm by rubbing the 2 wires together. It’s really annoying and I just want to get a new button, but I don’t know what brand the alarm system is, or if there is a universal switch I can buy … I want to sell my car, but I am going to have a difficult time trying to find a buyer with this problem. Any suggestions on what I can do?
If this is an aftermarket alarm system you can have it disconnected. If you have the oribinal switch you may be able to find a replacement by looking for the part number on the switch. I am not sure what would happen if you just connected the wires permanently.
If all you have to do to activate the kill switch is rub the wires together, then any momentary switch will do.
Here’s a cheap one:
Where’s the fun in that? How about one of those giant 4" dome switches like the tap light? Then add the words ALARM DE-ACTIVATION BUTTON emblazoned across the face and locate it on the dash pad…
Will that work for the wife when she get’s p o ed at you?
It’ll work to get you punched if you press it when she’s there.
Thank you for responding
