[V6-12v] 95 cabriolet Anti theft mal-function - please help

I have a 95 audi cabriolet with a mal-functioning alarm system.  Took to my 
mechanic.  Says he couldn't communicate with alarm module. Removed a fuse 
that seemed to work.  It disabled the central locking mechanism and the anti 
theft.  With all the rain however, the alarm has re-engaged itself ( short 
or something to make connection) and sends a kill signal to my ignition as 
well as occassional signals to flashers.  Does turn on horn or affect 
anything else on car.  There is an audible clicking sound coming from behind 
the passenger speaker.

Again wondering.  There must be some way to permanently di-engage the alarm 
/ anti theft device.  I don't care if I don't have it and it's such a small 
car that I can manually lock the car.  Must be some way.

Back story
- wonky central locking - automatic locking failed in the fall.
- passenger door would lock/unlock many times.  unlocking one door would not 
unlock any others
- a month ago, locked the trunk and engaged the alarm system.
- unlocking all locks did not turn off the system.
- mechanic removed the fuse which turned alarm off.

Please help.
