Have you ever noticed how hard it is to obtain information on automobiles, both online and in refference books? Oh, sure, they're complicated objects that entire libraries could be filled with all the nuances and personalities of every single model car there is, but isn't that something that should be done? Must be done? I've spent three hours looking through online forums, a Hilton repair guide, an owner's manual, and even blog entires about the 1993 Nissan Maxima, but I still can't get it to stop honking when I try to unlock it.

My new car is really nice, but I have this problem with it. I've come to believe the problem is unsolvable: if you lock the doors, you also arm an anti-theft device, which will go off when you unlock it or otherwise attempt to interact with it. I can disarm it (unlocking the trunk makes it stop), but I hate loud noises, and I'm niave enough to believe that there is some way to disarm it without the device being tripped. Is there any chance anybody reading this can give me any leads?

I've seen you in a few places now. That's what we get for being in the same fandom!

If I knew the dealership it was bought from, I would have contacted them. As it is now, all I have is the possibility of talking to my cousin -- also the previous owner! As we said above, the alarm was factory standard, so taking it out isn't really much of an option. (Dang.)
