Hi. When you disconnected and reconnected the battery cables, did you have the ignition key in the ON position?

i do and i did have the key in on position . is there a manual bypas or reset
Expert:  Pete replied 1 year ago.

I apologize for the delay.

If locking and unlocking the vehicle with the manual key does not reset the fault with the alarm here then the only other way I see to turn off the alarm on this model here is with the remote/keyless entry remote as some times one needs obtained and programmed to the vehicle to reset this or to have a dealer reprogram the theft system in your vehicle.I looked at all the info I show for this system on your model here and these are the only two ways to reset this here unfortunately.

Some claim they can leave the key in the on position in the ignition for a few minutes to reset the system but I havent tried this myself.Other then this it sounds like a trip to the dealer to have it reprogrammed or to obtain a remote and have it programmed to turn off the alarm.

If more help is needed, use the reply tab to continue our conversation. If no further assistance is needed, kindly rate my service.You can rate at any time and we can continue to work on your question as this will not close out your question.Keep in mind in some cases it can be difficult to fully diagnose or help repair your vehicle without seeing it and I work on delivering the best possible answer from what I see to work with.

Thanks Pete
