2002 Hyundai Santa Fe: We locked the doors..unlock..alarm went off

Resolved Question:

We have a 2002 Hyundai Santa Fe. We locked the doors with the clicker and when we tried to unlock it, the battery was dead on the clicker, so we opened the door with the key and the alarm went off. How do we turn the alarm off if this happens again?

Did you try and start the car?
Customer: replied 7 years ago.
Yes it would not start when the alarm was going off
Expert:  brownjeff replied 7 years ago.

Normally starting the car or unlocking the passenger's door with the key will stop the alarm from going off. By chance did you try the key in the passenger's door?

No we didn't. Is there a button we can push under the dash somwhere
Expert:  brownjeff replied 7 years ago.
No. The only way is like I stated earlier or with the remote of course.
