Try disconnecting the battery for about a half hour. That MIGHT reset the alarm monitor.

that will not reset the alarm monitor. you have to unplug the fuse. then put the car in "N" press on the brake and start it. once running let run for 5 minutes. then after that unhook the battery. while you have the battery unhooked put the main 9937c bus fuse back in, after 30 minutes hook up battery and you will be good as gold

Idk where any of those fuses look like and do I unplug the battery while the car is running? Magnum350

no you do not unhook the battery when the car is running laugh out loud. you have the car shut off. then you unhook the battery. right next to the battery there is a square black box marked that says fuse panel. click the tabs and take off the lid. under the lid it will tell you what fuses are what and more. unplug the accessories main fuse. then plug it back in. then hook up the battery. make sure you do not touch the wrench to the positive post lol

Ok but my alarm isn't the problem! It's the anti theft system that's acting stupid!
