Hello and welcome to JustAnswer!

The alarm went off because the door was opened without it being disarmed. It will disarm by unlocking a door or the trunk with the key, or by pressing the unlock button on the key fob.

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!
