HI,

Different expert here.

Open driver door and leave open. Insert key in ignition and turn to on position and leave. Disconnect the negative battery cable for 1 minute. Reconnect and alarm should sound for 1 minute and stop. Turn key to off for 5 seconds and then crank engine

I just need to start this car without alarm remote, I lost it, other than that, there is nothing machinely wrong with my car, the Alarm was set, and than I lost the keys and remote and only had one remote, but had spare key, only.
Saturn Mechanic: Eric, Automotive Repair Shop Manager replied 7 months ago

I understand that. The method I just posted should disarm the alarm so it will start and run
