1. how do i disable the factory alarm
I wouldn't say that you need to. It arms and disarms itself in conjunction with the locking system. If your keyless-entry connections are properly made (to the yellow and light-green wires at the outside key lock in the door), the factory alarm will arm and disarm correctly when the car is locked and unlocked. You should also find a Factory Alarm Shutdown Wire in your kit which should be connected to the light-green wire, which will turn off the factory alarm when the car is remotely started.

Oh, Gawd, really? Okay, it'll probably be a box behind the dash, connected to the large-gauge wires leading from your ignition switch at the base of the steering column.

If you can figure out what brand of remote starter you need to remove, that will help. Also, does this remote start have any connection to your keyless entry system? How about your interior lights or parking lights?

3.Where cam i access the turn indicator relay power wiring
You don't have a relay in your turn signal circuit. If you want to blink the turn signals, you will need to access the wires at the base of the steering column where they come down from the turn-signal switch. I don't have the specific wire colors handy but we can dig those up.

4.Where can i access the parking light relay wiring
You don't have a relay in your parking light circuit. You may need to add one, however (and the old remote starter may use one as well, if it blinks your parking lights for you). The wire that you will need to inject voltage into to power your parking lights is the solid brown wire coming out the side of your headlight switch. See the TechInfo item on accessing the headlight switch here: http://www.bonnevilleclub.com/techinfo/?article=39

As I think I said before, take your time with this, and have a good test light handy to doublecheck what you're doing. Good luck...

The factory alarm has never worked right. thats why i want to disable it. I didnt see a box behind the dash, thats where i installed my new unit. Ill do what i can sometime this week. so far i have only been able to install the temp sensor, the pager, the antena and i replaced the hood open sensor with the new one from my kit.

Yep thats the alarm. I have found one wire that has been taped into in the ignition. its a large orange one. looks to be about 8 gauge maybe 10. Could this be where the other setup taped into the lights and should i jump the wire to my new alarm to that one and disconnect the old one?

Ok there is also a yellow one which is split into another yellow one and a purple one and a red one that is split into 2 red ones. The orange one also has a blue wire with a yellow stripe taped into it. I think this wire leads to the sensor for the hood pop sensor for the alarm because its the same color. What does all this mean and what do i do with it. Im lose already

Ok just ty try to clear things up a bit im going to go through all of this again to try to make things clearer. By the way the reason i want to take off the old remote start is because i bought the car used and i cant get the remote. And the reason im not using the factory alarm is because it doesnt work right. The alarm im working with is an autopage 850 LCD

The yellow wire is the ignition wire. It has been split into 1 yellow wire and 1 purple wire. Im assuming that the purple wire would lead to the other remote start, am i right? And all i have to do is disconnect the purple wire from the old remote starter and splice mine in the same place right?

There is also a red wire that is split into 2 red wires and an orange wire that is split into 2 orange wires. My new system has 1 ignition input and 2 outputs. Could the old system be similar and thats why there are 3 wires taped into under my dash? I need to know if the car has an electrical or a mechanical nuetral start switch

Also if i need to make a relay for my driving lights how would i go about doing that
