The fan shouldn't be anyway connected to the alarm, just a coincidence. If you don't want the alarm set, you must simply use the key to lock the door manually instead of the key fob. To get the fan working again, look for the fuse that controls the blower and pull it out to see if it isn't blown or has corrosion. If that is OK, it could be the fan control module/resistor or the blower motor itself. You'll have to have someone look it over for you. Here is a link that might help you find the issue and get it fixed.
