Hello, my name is***** order to turn this system off you need to be able to lock and unlock the doors with a key or a remote. If you do not have one then all you can do is put the key in the ignition and turn it on to the run position and leave it there for several minutes to see if the alarm goes off. That may take care of it. If not then unhook the battery cables for several minutes. Then reinstall them and see if the key in the ignition will turn it off. If not then you need to have a locksmith make a remote or a key for the car. Please let me know if you need more help.

I've tried all those ways no success. Is there any other way I can't afford a locksmith right now
