Hello and welcome to JustAnswer!

Whether the alarm is factory or aftermarket, pressing the unlock button on the key fob will disarm it provided the system is fully functional. If you have just factory security then unlocking the door manually with the key should disarm it also.

Did you get the problem repaired?
