Yeah, I looked for it for hours one night, with no luck. Then I found it on my buddies rs, and saw the brown wires. When I went to look at mine I saw two brown wires with no switch, no wonder I never found it! Anyways, if you don't have the switch, touching the brown wires together does the same thing until you can get a new switch on there. I didn't know that was a programing switch though, good to know.

When you plug what in? I had a problem once when I disconnected the battery, I couldn't put the cables back without the alarm going crazy. After a few hours of receiving help from the good ol' rs25.com crew, I learned to turn the ignition to the "on" position, which is the last place it will stop before the motor turns over. After it's chilling there, I reconnected the battery. The end. No alarm going off, I started the car, everything was back to normal.

I'm not sure if that will help you unless you need to disconnect the battery to reset something and then go through that process to start it up again.

Did you find the two brown wires (which hopefully had a switch attached to them)?
