1990 Porsche 911

I was recently, given a 1990 Porsche from my belated childhood friend's mother. Found a back up after market key. I barrowed a battery and when I put the key in the alarm went off.
I know nothing about Porsche, I am more of a DYI Honda weekend wrencher here. How do I disable the alarm, is it kill switch deal, immobilizer thing? I don't even know if its after market.
I have to take this project slow, don't want to damage the 911 or just let anyone put hands on it.
Get at me with any ideas or clarifications.
Gratz from NoCal

Alarm may be activated or disabled with a keyhole in the driver's door. The door must be opened slightly to gain access as it is in the door jam near the door latch. Or at least that's how my factory alarm is in my '87. I don't know if Porsche still did that with the 964s like yours.

Or it could be an aftermarket alarm and then I have no idea. Sorry I couldn't be more help. Good luck.

Im new in here, I don't know to be precise. I can take a look at it tomorrow. This thing has been sitting in storage for last 15 years. I don't know much about Porsche, like four tires and a steering wheel. That's sad to say, but Im glad I found this forum.
I will post up later.
Thank you

This is the factory alarm lock I referred to that's in the door jam. The door/ignition key will not work in that. It's a special alarm key. Again, I don't know if they were still using these in 1990 or not. You could also have an aftermarket alarm.

In due time guys. like I said I just put and a new battery in it to see what would happened. This thing is so dusty, I don't know what color it is.
To be honest there are more vehicles in storage.
1982 Porsche Carrera (auto tranny), I think its black with black interior.
1992 Mercedes Benz
Two white BMW sedans, gonna have to with late 90's
No keys and no batteries
I found 92 Mercedes and 90 porches keys. The rest I don't have any idea where to begin I got to get them out of storage and flip them as fast I can. There go my weekends for a while.
For now, I have to take the baby steps before I can take some huge leaps on this project.

Take pictures with your phone
Select “post reply”
Select “upload photos”
“Choose file” to browse for your photo
Complete upload

Tough to help with no pics.

Specific vins with each car saves much time as we can find what specific options they may have from factory.

Otherwise we are blind.

You are starting from zero, so quickly. A 1990 911 is known within the 911 community as a 964. That is an internal identifier of the general configuration. It is still a 911, but lots of changes were made that make it very different from an earlier car. There is a 964 and 993(even later version) forum here, which will provide better answers to your specific questions, or there is another forum at Rennlist.com that often offers better info on the later 964 and up cars. There, look at the air/oil cooled heading and the 964 drop down.

I don't think the factory alarm has a key off as described above, it is integrated into the door locking, and is disabled using the key to unlock the driver's door.

Besides that, there are really many things to go over in a car that has been sitting so long. I would not attempt to start it until you have at least changed the oil and gas, and there are many things to be done before it moves.

1982 Porsche Carrera auto tranny? 1982 was a SC, not a Carrera, and I don't believe there was an auto tranny option. Hey, what do I know, others with more knowledge than me will sort it out for you.

1982 SC, whats SC? It is an Auto
90 alarma has priority over other concerns, so if anyone has the specifics on how to deal with it, I would really appreciate it.
