Remove the alarm relay under the drivers side dash and replace it with
the dummy relay P/N 3545333. It's a brown relay that goes in cavity 210.
It eliminates the alarm and jumpers the connection to allow the starter
to run when the key is turned to the start position. It's how the car
was delivered to the dealer before the alarm system was installed.
As for the fan: install the pollen filter kit under the passenger side
windshield cowl and find a shop that has the old fan bulletin and undo
the modification. In addition clean ansd dielectric grease the main body
ground strip and connectors under/beside the battery tray.
The goal when driving is to miss the maximum number of objects.
