Hi my name is ***** ***** I will be happy to assist with this today.In some cases I may need more info to assist better.I apologize for any delay. Unfortunately I do not show a way myself that this can be totally disabled to keep from going off without the key fob disarming the system.The key fob will have to be replaced if it is faulty and programmed to your vehicle by a dealer to correct this issue here.In some cases a dealer can program the theft system to where the key activates and deactivates the alarm in the door lock itself and the dealer would be the one that needs to check this here to see if this can be done on your model here. 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
