Hello and welcome to JustAnswer!

If you have an aftermarket alarm then it may have a valet button or switch to turn it off, but there isn't anything considered a reset. Either an aftermarket or factory alarm can be disarmed by pressing the unlock button on a key fob.

What are the actual symptoms you're experiencing?
