Disable Alarm on 98 Explorer

I am so frustrated! The car has be at a local shop for 2 weeks now (I told them I was not in a super hurry). It was suddenly dying and they replaced the fuel pump because the pressure was low. That did not fix it.

Now, they think it is the anti-theft that is causing the problem. They pulled a couple fuses to test it, but those fuses also control things like the speedo so it can be a permanent solution.

How can I disable the alarm? The guy is not sure and I said I would ask around. I don't have the key fob, which he stated is causing an issue. I am so frustrated after spending all this money and getting nowhere.
