Have you tried to lock and unlock with a remote or the interior buttons or tried to put the key in the ignition and turn it on to see if the alarm then stops?

Let me know,thanks Pete

O.k.,unfortunately my info is not showing another way besides the remote to disarm this here.In some cases a new remote is needed to do this.If you would like I can open your question for others here to see if they can assist further just let me know if this is something you would like to do.

Unfortunately I do not show this info myself here but others here may be able to help.

I will open your question up for others here to see if someone else can assist further on this as there may be others here that may have more info on what to check or do with this issue.I hope you can get this resolved with ease.No need to reply to my last post here unless it is a last resort as it will keep your question locked to me and others will not be able to view it.If you feel you want to continue to work with me on this feel free to reply at any time but keep in mind in some cases it can be difficult to fully diagnose or help repair this without seeing your vehicle.

Thanks Pete
