Try this, lock the doors with the lock switch on the door instead of the key fob. With some vehicles, like my '00 Grand Prix (different car, I know) locking the doors with the fob sets the alarm. Locking the doors with the door switch does not. HTH. -Jim

I'll try that. We didn't lock it at all after turning it on and running it a minute and it didn't go off again last night. Next we'll try locking it with the door switch. Thanks
