My name is XXXXX XXXXX I am a professional here at Just Answer. I noticed that your question was not getting a response and thought I would ask to see if you still need help with this.

It does sound like the vehicles alarm has activated here,there are a couple things to try first,try locking and unlocking the vehicle with the transmitter/remote and see if then the alarm shuts off.If it does not try locking and unlocking the drivers door with the key blade in the key cylinder.

Usually one of these will disable/shut off the alarm for this here.If one does not let me know and we can continue.

I hope this has helped in some way here.If you need anything else don't hesitate to ask thats what I am here for.If you are not satisfied with my help here let me know before rating my help.

Thanks Pete
