Can I disarm stock security system

Asked by Shwa7676 Feb 10, 2017 at 09:53 AM about the 1999 GMC Jimmy 4 Dr SLE 4WD SUV

Question type: General

I have a 1999 gmc jimmy and I was
wondering if I can disarm or shut off the
stock security system. I do not have
keyless entery and my security light will
blink all the time and it is draining my
battery down so bad that I have to jump
start every morning.

First, no you can not disable the security system. Second, the blinking security light uses such a minute amount of power that it would not drain your battery. Should have the battery checked, may be getting old and have the charging system checked, this keeps the battery charged up. If the battery is loosing power other than these reasons, then look for a light that is left on, interior, glove box, under the hood. If you do not find anything there then a parasitic draw test would have to be performed to figure out what is drawing on the battery.

i have the same problem but found bu removing the better radio fuse helped. my parasitic amps drain went from .87 A to merely .1A, but don't have any gauges when i do so not interior lights or radio! can you help the batter is good and charging system is good.

me again also some one tried to break in to my car today the security system went off but know one around i think some one was in my vehicle the front seat was moved all the way forward so now i removed the auto locking electronic door locks fuse so they cant get in! i don't want any one to be in my car and mess with it! this is a problem i need to remove the security system is is not good if some one can get into my car with a thief with an arrangement of car fobs he might steal things i cant replace and i am on the road a lot. please help
