hmmm, didn't know there was a factory alarm for the P5?!?!?! Must be an aftermarket installed at the dealer, as far as I can see. but if it was indeed a factory alarm system, all you would have to do is hook the battery back up and unlock the drivers door or the passengers door with the key to disarm it. can you post a pic of the remote? that may help in identifing the type of system.
