Normally, putting the key in the drivers side door lock, turning to the left, then to the right all the way will unlock and disarm/reset the "OEM factory" alarm system. Do you currently have an ignition switch installed at this moment. Because if you have an after market alarm system, you need to put the key into the ignition to disable it.

Are you saying the ignition key lock cylinder is broken and you cannot use your ignition key to start this vehicle?
