1999 chrysler town and country limited

I'm going a bit nuts I have a Chrysler t/c limited that the anti theft shuts down the motor It thinks it's being stolen so it will shut down and not start I have reset the alarm and it worked once. Then it has done it again and wont respond so I want to go in and unplug it but I can't find where it's located a service manual and shop manual only show it's connected to the doors and I can't find. Any help would be appreciated. thank you julie

Doc here,

You can't just "Unplug" a VATS system..it will leave a hole in your engine computer and BCM's that will never allow it to start..

You are faced with 2 choices here..

1) Repair the VATS system..probably nothing more than a dirty or loose harness..a little time and cleaning will probably fix the problem...

2) Replace the VATS system with an "OVER RIDE" harness ...something which you will have to build, the harness is over ride and inter connect between the VATS and BCM and ECU..so everything looks normal to the Computer even though it's been removed.

I've never done a VATS over ride so I can not speak from experience because I always either avoid them or repair the system..have read topics here and elsewhere on those who have a fairly mid range complicated project..
