If you open each of the front doors you will see there's a rubber tube running between the door and body, pull the rubber boot back and you'll find wires in there. They break pretty often. So reconnect them. So you should be able to then unlock the car with the key and it should work, or try the key in the trunk. Now, if that doesn't work you can then you can disable the alarm alltogether. The alarm module is to the left of the instrument cluster behind the instrument cluster. You can pop the small panel to the left of the headlight switch off just by pulling outward. Then you remove the headlight switchm if you look on the left side of the switch where you remove the panel there,s a small tab you push with a screwdriver and pull the headlight switch out. Then there's two screws in the vent above the headlight switch. You remove those and pull the vent out. That gives decent access to the module. Remove the connector, cut the large two red wires and connect them together. Do not reconnect the connector. Now there's no more alarm.
