Cisco ASA - turn off all Intrusion Detection/Prevention

I have an ASA 5510 on the perimeter of my network.  During PCI-compliance scans, it seems to be inhibiting the security company from completing the test.  I originally had "Enable basic threat detection" checked, because I thought that only logged threats.  And then I unchecked even that, but the security scan still fails with a note that states that Interference is being detected.  Is there another area of the FW that also supports intrusion detection settings?  Or do I possibly have some unknown device on my network causing trouble?  thanks

If you look at this manual, you will see that you have to define the traffic that is being sent to the  IPS module.

http://www.cisco.com/en/US/docs/security/ips/5.1/configuration/guide/cli/cliSSM.html#wp1030972

So if you remove the policy-map or class that is being used to define the IPS inspection, nothing will go to the IPS module.

I have removed the IPS reference entirely.

Then nothing should be going through the IPS module.

What makes them think that there is interference?
