When the armed VTSS senses that the battery has been disconnected and reconnected, it enters its power-up mode. In the power-up mode the alarm system remains armed following a battery failure or disconnect. If the VTSS was armed prior to a battery disconnect or failure, the system will have to be actively or passively disarmed following a battery reconnection.
Passive disarming of the Vehicle Theft Security System (VTSS) occurs when the vehicle is unlocked using the key to unlock either front door or the liftgate.

Active disarming of the VTSS occurs when the vehicle is unlocked by depressing the Unlock button of the Remote Keyless Entry (RKE) transmitter.
Once the alarm has been activated (horn sounding, lights flashing, and the engine no-run feature), either disarming method will deactivate the alarm.
IF you have tried the above at ALL Key Locks in doors & liftgate, then you likely have a problem with the Factory Alarm Module & needs to be replaced

.

You can also locate the VIOLET / YELLOW (-) wire in the Driver Kick Panel / Door Harness
Ground the VIOLET / YELLOW wire
This should DisArm the Factory Alarm until the Ground is removed
