Disabling alarm - 1992 500e

My alarm system is misbehaving. When I unlock the car and attempt to start the car, the alarm engages. However, the car does start. So I turn the ignition off, get out, lock and unlock the doors again until this doesn't happen anymore.

I have checked the archives and understand that there is a sensor in the lock mechanism that is prone to failure. My eventual plan is to put an after-market alarm/keyless entry system in.

QUESTION - is there an easy way to just disable the factory alarm system without losing the central locking capability? I see two fuses that control the central alarm system, but assume that taking these out will also kill the central locking.

Thanks in advance.
