How can i temparaly disable the alarm long enough to charge the battery

Hello and welcome to JustAnswer!

The alarm would be active when battery power is reapplied and need to be disarmed. What you need to do is connect the jumper cables, charger or new battery, and then press the unlock button on the key fob.

A key fib can't and wouldn't need to be reset.
