Hello and welcome to JustAnswer!

If the system is functioning correctly then it will disarm if you unlock a door with the key. There are disarm switches that send a signal when a door is unlocked with a key and as long as the module, wiring and switches are intact then this will disarm it. try unlocking the driver's door and if that doesn't help then try the passenger as well as the trunk.

I hope that helps! My goal is your satisfaction today. If you feel I've been professional and helpful, your 5-star rating at this time is most appreciated. However, if you still need my help you can reply back here and I'll respond as soon as possible! Thank you!
