A 1995 Suburban doesn't have a factory alarm system. You're describing an aftermarket alarm system. Do you have a key fob with buttons on it? If so, what does it look like?

I found out it is aftermarket. Found solution for resetting by using key manually to do a lock/unlock sequence. Worked great.
Thanks for your followup.
