I am sorry that you have not been helped yet. I just came online and saw your question

Ok, lock the doors using the inside door lock button and shut all doors. Now unlock the driver door with the key. Leave the driver door open and insert key in the ignition and crank engine.

If this does not work, disconnect the negative cable from the battery. Insert key in ignition and turn to on position. With key still in on position, wait 1 minute, then reconnect battery cable. Alarm will sound for 60 seconds and then go off and flashing light will stop. cycle key off and then crank engine
