Unlikely it can turned off with a switch or something, but may be possible to disconnect the power to it or the sensors? Might be worth checking the fuse (it must be fused right?)

It's quite common for the interior sensors in Civics to not work though. Are you sure this isn't the problem?

No - could you imagine if it was - all a thief would need to do would be to pop the fuse cover and remove the fuse and he would then have a peaceful rummage in your car. - removing the battery would be no use for the hypothetical thief either as the alarm is battery backed up

Sit in the car lock the doors and don't move, once the alarm sets move around and set it off. If it goes off it's working.

Lol yeah that's what I thought. But the system must have some sort of protection?
