Thanks! Thank you, X5chemist and Clavurion for you help.

Do you maybe know, if I can just turn off the alarm by coding GM3 and turning DAW off (either with NCS or PASoft), or do I have to physically remove the siren, tilt sensor, I believe Fuse 14, and maybe something else?

I just unplugged mine. I might have done something with the coding but I was doing a fair bit at the time and don't remember.

Just the Fuse 13 or siren (H1), tilt sensor (B28), and Interior movement detection (A121) too?

Nope just the siren module under the hood.

Ok, thanks for all the help! We'll continue on some other thread when I stumble upon new problems.

I'm curious if you were maybe using an older or cheap LED flashlight to look at those wires?
I found that nothing is as good as a old school flashlight or trouble lite with an incandescent bulb for that kind of thing! (Also for finding tiny snap rings etc. on the floor

I don't know if it's older, but I got it a few months ago on Amazon for like 20€ (about $22 US). It came to my mind yesterday that the flashlight could have influenced this stupid move of mine.
When I looked at the wires in the daylight though, they were a bit of yellowish (less than under the flashlight, but more than wires at the connectors of the switches themselves).

I will definitely get a good old-school flashlight for the future.

Poor quality LEDs have low CRI and some colours like red and green can be distorted or blunt greyish in that lighting. (Incandescent light has CRI 100). There are good quality LEDs available with CRI over 98. In normal household LED lighting CRI >80 is usually considered OK.
