Hi my name is ***** ***** I will be happy to assist with this today.In some cases I may need more info to assist better.I apologize for any delay.

Unfortunately usually this will take a door key to lock and unlock the drivers side door to turn off the alarm.In some cases if you have a remote/key fob you can use this as well to lock and unlock the doors to turn off the alarm or use the interior lock and unlock button to turn off the alarm but usually this takes the door key to lock and unlock the door to reset this.You can also try to insert your key into the ignition to turn it on and see if it turns off then.

Your door lock cylinder has a sensor that sends a signal to turn on and off the alarm.What you may have to do is leave the battery disconnected right now,go to a dealer with your vehicles VIN number,registration and photo ID and have them cut you a door key from your VIN number (as some can do this) and then go back and connect your battery and use the key in the door.

Some of these models also used the main key as the door key so I would check first to see if the main key locks and unlocks the door.

Is it possible to open the door panel and di able the systedm
Expert:  Pete replied 8 months ago.

You may be able to do this although I have not tried this myself.There should be an electrical switch on the door cylinder you might be able to switch manually once the panel is removed.It may rotate manually to turn off the alarm.You can try this but I dont know or see here that this will work for sure.
