2000 Mustang Keyless Entry/Alarm Removal

Hey everyone! I've got a 2000 V-6; I'm having an issue and hope that my fellow Mustang folk can help me out. My car's been broken in to a few times within the last year, stealing my radio - 3 times in just under 1 year. So, I figured I really should install an alarm. I have one, but I need to access and remove/disable the factory Passive Anti-Theft System (PATS) but cannot locate it. I've been told to check the trunk - I only see something for the fuel and the inertia(?) switch; under the glove box - but nothing; and under the steering wheel near the fuses - nothing. I'm not exactly sure what I should be looking for. So, hopefully someone can help me here. Where would the PATS be located, and how can I install/disable it?

It's a 2000 V6 Mustang. If someone has pictures that can help me ID it, that would be great too.

Thanks to anyone that can help!!

you cant disable it.. theres nothing to remove , its programmed into the computer you'd need a dealer to disable it with some software

Thanks for the reply! So, if I want to install a new alarm, do I need to do anything with the keyless entry? Are you able to have two keyless entries, alarm plus stock?

im not an expert, nor do i have experience in having alarms on mustangs, but i believe they tend to coexist.. you'll have the pats and the aftermarket alarm working on top of eachother
