Disconnecting 1997 Legacy alarm

Probably not what you are looking for, but it was a quick easy solution for me. Everything still works w/r/t the remote door unlock and other features, it's just mute.

I just installed my alarm and have had no problems with it. But it has never gone off either? ---so that's never been a problem.
I wonder if you adjusted your sensitivity if you would be happier?

I just followed the wire going to the siren, which was mounted in the engine bay on the firewall. I can't remember if there was just one lead (+) going to it and it was grounded to the frame, or if there were two. I think I just cut the + one and taped or heat shrink insulated the ends of the wire off so it didn't short out, and it would be easy to splice back if I changed my mind or sold the car.
When I set my alarm (never) or when I disconnect my battery then reconnect it as I did today (see my thread about my OEM battery RIP) the alarm will flash the hazards and disable the car, but no siren. It's mute. I have to use the remote to disable it before starting the car.
I don't ever use the remote door lock/unluck feature, but if I wanted to it works as normal. I just never got into the habit, and so it's a feature I don't use. Ideally I'd just have the remote lock/unlock and no alarm, as mentioned above, but since I don't use either I've never taken the time to see how that would be done.

If you have starter kill you will need to find out what color the wire is under the dash and then trace it back to the rely connections for the alarm. Dicconect it from the relay on both sides and then splice it back togehter with a butt connector and be sure to crimp it well. Electrical tape wouldn't be a bad idea either. I mean both together. Contrary to popular thougth.....electrical tape IS NOT THE ANSWER!!!
Electrical tape alone is not the answer, it is the question. The answer is NO!
(sorry, couldn't resist)
Personally, I would solder the wires and put shrink wrap around it. . .
