Hello. Welcome to Just Answer. Please allow me to assist you. On the back of the key cylinder is a tiny micro switch. It is there to activate the alarm if someone tries to gain access to the car by ripping the key cylinder out of the door. Most likely, the switch is faulty and needs to be replaced. This is not an easy job, as the entire door panel needs to come off, the glass needs to come out and the door lock needs to be removed. If you have the skills to do this, the switch is easily replaced. If not, leave this one to a professional.
