disconnecting the stock keyless entry

Im adding a new alarm system to protect my investment...

My truck came with the keyless entry, but how do you disconnect it?

you dont need to disconnect it you just tap into it for the new alarm if it has keyless.....also the ranger is a pretty tricky car to do if this is your first alarm install. We have sleeping door locks which "wake up" and send a pulse through the system which sets off aftermarket alarms every 10min if not done right

yeah chris you should do fine man just take your time... if you have trouble with the door sensors let me know. i had to work around the sleeping door locks by wiring my alarm to send an isolated pulse to the driver-side door open sensor wire to trick it into 'waking up' the system, and then sending a second pulse to unlock the doors.
