Unlock Doors with Door Key
When locking, Lock "Manually" do not use Door Lock Switch
Oterwise:

Find the BLUE/RED (-) wire located in the 15 PIN Connector in Driver Kick Panel / Door Boot
Connect one end of a peice of wire to the BLUE/RED (-) wire
Connect the other end of the peice of wire to Ground (chassis)
This will DisArm Factory Alarm until the wire is removed

I did that but th car still won't turn on, when I turn on the ignition it won't even do the cranking sound

Does not sound like Alarm

If dash lights come on:
Be sure Battery Cables are clean & tight
Check to see if Security Light is flashing
Connect Jumper Battery to help

I actually did that but here is the deal, I disconnected the battery posts because the alarm kept on going off. It stopped and when I put the battery post back the alarm started to go off again. I put battery cables on to see if it would help but didn't work. There is power because the dash board lights work and the tuen signals work also. I know for a fact that it is not an aftermarket alarm because I do see that 15 pin connector on the bottom of the dashboard. That red light still keeps on flashing and I pushed it down and it cuts off the horn beeping but the red light keeps on flashing. and there is no cranking sound when I try totirn on the vehicle

Try

Open Driver Door & LEAVE Open
