My 2012 Kia won't start and the anti theft alarm keeps going

Customer Question

JA: Hello. What do you want help with?
Customer: My 2012 Kia won't start and the anti theft alarm keeps going off. Just started today.
JA: Have you tried locking and unlocking the driver's side door using the key itself?
Customer: Kind of maybe. Weird answe I know.
JA: What is the model of your '12 Kia?
Customer: Forte ex
JA: Are you fixing your Forte yourself? What have you tried so far?
Customer: I've simply unlocked the car with the fob. When I open the door the alarm goes off and the car won't start. Pressing the buttons on the fob doesn't turn off the alarm but it eventually goes off by itself.
JA: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?
Customer: Nope.

1.Unlock the door with the key.
2.Get in the vehicle(the alarm will be going off) and turn the ignition on. It won't start, the remote start theft system won't let it.
3.Find the programming button and press it once. It should be located behind the fuse box cover, or just under the dash by the fuse box
