MY ALARM WENT OFF REPEATEDLY WHEN I ATTEMPTED..ENGINE...KEY FOBS

Customer Question

MY ALARM WENT OFF REPEATEDLY WHEN I ATTEMPTED TO START ENGINE. SWITCH TURNED BUT ALARM WOULD BLARE IMMEDIATELY UPON FULL TURN. DO NOT HAVE GOOD KEY FOBS TO OPERATE ALARM. USE KEY TO LOCK AND UNLOCK DOOR EACH TIME TO STOP ALARM. AFTER SEVERAL ATTEMPTS, IGNITION SWITCH WILL NOW NOT TURN. ALARM IS STILL ACTIVE ON DOORS AND WILL SOUND WHEN OPENED. BATTERY IS FINE (OR WAS WHEN I STARTED ATTEMPTS). SWITCH IS NOW LOCKED AND I AM STUCK IN DRIVEWAY IN FRONT OF GARAGE DOOR. PLEASE HELP ME.
