Hello my name is ***** ***** thank you for your question.

Both from door lock cylinders have a tamper switch to turn off the factory alarm. If the key is strong enough to turn in the ignition, it should be strong enough to cycle the key in the door lock to turn off the alarm.

Do you have any more questions on this?
