Hello and Thank you for using JustAnswer.com
When the alarm is going off,
Are the parking lights flashing? or the Head lights?
the head lights flashed
i think the problem may be that i didn't know how to disarm the anti-theft system. now i realize i need to unlock one of the doors with the key. would that do it?
Yes, that turns off the factory alarm using the key in any of the front doors, or the trunk
Sorry for the delay in response. I was out for the day.
