Need help fast.. Key transmitter not working.. Alarm problem?

Recommended Posts

Hey guys.. I need some information ASAP. I went to home depot today and locked my car. Came out 10 min later and the transmitter wouldn't work. Alarm door lights are blinking so I know the alarm is armed. I got a ride to get a new battery for the fob and it didn't change a thing. I tried to insert key into door and turn and it will unlock but alarm is still flashing.. I know the Siren will sound when I open the door, how can I turn the siren off? Will inserting the key into ignition turn off the siren? I'm stuck at home depot and in a parking garage.. I'm just curious how I can turn the siren off..

I had a dead battery earlier this week.. I wonder if the transmitter came unprogrammed?

If you unlock the door with the key then use the fob to lock/unlock it should disarm the alarm. The fob sometimes goes out of sync if the battery gets low. Does the LED on the fob still light whilst pushing the buttons?

Thanks for your response.. Yes I am getting a nice green light when pushing the buttons.. I will Try to turn key to the right.. And then press the lock or unlock button. I just don't want the car stuck there with the alarm blaring..I will be towed I'm sure if I can't shut it off. Do you know if it will turn off the alarm when I try to start the car? It's the oem factory key..
