To disable the alarm, get outside the car, put your key in the door, and turn counter clockwise. it should then shut off

If your car does in fact have an imobalizer your supposed to hook up a battery charger to the cables before removing the battery to maintain a charge so that does not happen. To reset the keys if they became desynced put your key in the ignition and turn to power on (do not turn over) leave it in power on for 15 minutes then turn it back to power off and attempt to start. If you have a key fob key use the alarm button on the key to shut the alarm off. Also putting your key in the igniton and turning to power on should disable the alarm as well.

as for the radio code that should be in your cars manuel other wise your heading to a dealer and paying around 65-125$ for them to retreive the code for you.

I had the same problem once. Everytime I tried to start the car, alarms would go off and wouldn't start. Two days later and 9, yes I said 9 horns for the alarm that my brother unhooked. It still happened, then he cut the wires to the alarm in the car and it still went off!! Found out there was an after factory alarm put in. Now all horns are disconnected accept the one I need! WOW
