Hi there,

Is the alarm still going off or is there no power to the car?

First thing to try and you may have already is to close and lock all the doors with the remote. Also, make sure the hood is closed because there is a sensor for the alarm there as well. You basically have to try and reset the alarm first.

Please try this and let me know.
