Yes, probably just a toggle switch. My first new car had a dealer installed alarm. Today it's my mom's car and several years ago the stupid alarm would not deactivate, and of course the company that built it was no longer in business. So a cousin stopped by who works for a car dealer. In about two minutes he had removed the toggle which was under the panel under the steering wheel. To think I probably paid $500 for an alarm that was removed in two minutes.
He told me that for his dealership, it was common practice to always remove the alarms on cars that they took in on trade.
