HI, Ok, do the following: Open driver door and leave it open. Place key in the ignition switch and turn to on position. Now disconnect the negative battery cable for at least 60 seconds and then reconnect it. Alarm should sound for 60 seconds and then stop. At this point, cycle key to off position, wait 5 seconds and then crank engine
