Hello and welcome to JustAnswer! I apologize for the extended wait time you experienced, I've only just come online now and would like to assist you with your question.

I'm assuming you have just factory security since you didn't mention otherwise.

There are two ways to disarm the factory alarm, either unlocking the doors with the keyless entry button or by starting the engine with a valid key. Depending on exactly what is happening you may have a bad fob or it's possible that the wireless control module may not be operating for whatever reason.

Have you tried starting the engine?

What happens?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
the alarm and my hazards continue
Expert:  sprinkles08 replied 1 year ago.

But what does the engine do?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
it runs normally and I've even tried unhooking both terminals for 10 mins and still the same
Expert:  sprinkles08 replied 1 year ago.

You're saying the engine starts and runs while the alarm is going off?

Expert:  sprinkles08 replied 1 year ago.

Are you positive it's the horn that you're hearing and not an aftermarket alarm siren?

Have you owned the vehicle since new?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
it's the alarm siren
Expert:  sprinkles08 replied 1 year ago.
If it's a siren and not the horn then that explains why it can sound with the engine running.Do you not have a key fob for the aftermarket alarm?
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
sorry about that but shall I do in order to reset my car so that I cn use my key fob and drive my car
Expert:  sprinkles08 replied 1 year ago.
There isn't anything to reset.Did the aftermarket alarm have a key fob?
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
but my key fob no longer works
Expert:  sprinkles08 replied 1 year ago.
It will need to be replaced it does not transmit yet the battery is good. You could also have the alarm removed if you don't wish to repair the problem.
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
I want to fix it it as a well as use my job fob
Expert:  sprinkles08 replied 1 year ago.
You'll need to test or replace the fob battery and if ok then have the fob tested.
