You have to rest the intrusion alarm. To do this shut the engine off and close all the doors, hood and trunk. Lock the doors with the key. Let the car sit for 15 minutes. Then unlock the drivers door with the key. This should set everything right gain for you.

Let me know if that does not work. If it does not, then we can do a couple more things to reset the system.
