Unlock the driver side door with the key, or depress the UNLOCK button on the transmitter in order to disarm the system after the system is fully armed or possibly tripped.
When the driver door is unlocked with a key, the tamper switch closes. This grounds the door's input to the remote control door lock receiver (RCDLR). The system is then disarmed and the alarm state will not become active when the door is opened.
The remote control door lock receiver is an internal part of the RCDLR for the remote keyless entry (RKE) system. When the RCDLR receives a valid key transmission from the remote transmitter, it unlocks the doors. Therefore the RCDLR recognizes this in the same manner as a valid door lock switch disarm input.
