    This is for a 1994 Concerto, RHD. The handset has finally given
    up(buttons damaged) and I don't have a spare. I am able to operate the
    alarm by shorting out the contacts. Is there a manual override or
    another way of disabling the alarm? The car is old, so it is not worth
    the cost of a new handset. My e-mail is

    Unplug the hood (bonnet) switch and short the two terminals with a piece of
    wire. The system will think the hood is open and refuse to arm the alarm.
