the continuing alarm issue, ugh, I tried Scottishlad's suggestion (thanks...it worked!!) and turned the battery off for awhile. I turned it back on, heard a beep (first ever) and when I opened the door the alarm went off. Lights, siren, everything! I thought my problems were solved! Until I pushed the button on my key and nothing happened. Fortunately the alarm stopped going off after a minute or two and I drove the car home. I hoped that my second key (valet) would work but alas it wasn't meant to be. The great news is that my alarm works! The bad news is that it appears I'll need to get both keys reprogrammed. The worst news though is now the alarm goes off every time the door is opened. Is there anyway to um, disable, the alarm again (geez) until I make the trip to San Antonio? Any input or insight is greatly appreciated!
