Re: Cannot turn off security Alarm
If this is a factory alarm try using the the key in the door lock and turning the door lock manually. I have seen this issue in chrysler models as well. If this does not work try replacing the batteries in the key fob as this will cause falfunctions as well.

If your alarm is factory-installed, first, you will need to insert the key in the ignition in the "ON" position. Leave it there and wait until the alarm stop sounding. It may take between thirty seconds and one-and-a-half minute.
Second. Once the alarm stop, turn the key to the left like if you were going to take it out, but don't remove the key.
Third. Wait Exactly 10 seconds and turn the car on.
This will disable the alarm until it is engaged again using the remote.
Press the "Unlock" key on your key fob to deactivate the alarm and unlock the car doors. If you've lost your key fob, unlocking the driver's side door with the key automatically deactivates the PT Cruiser's alarm.
Look for the black alarm box underneath the dashboard, on the driver's side of the car. Locate the override button on the box -- either a black or red button, depending on the year of the PT Cruiser -- but don't press it yet.
Put the key in the ignition and turn the key so that the battery is on, but the engine doesn't start. Quickly push and hold in the override button until you hear the alarm sound once, indicating the alarm is disabled.
Turn the ignition key counter clockwise in the driver's side door to unlock the car. This deactivates the alarm long enough for you to gain access to the vehicle. Then, place the key in the ignition and turn the key until it clicks once. This starts the car's battery, but doesn't ignite the engine. The LED light on the dashboard should stop blinking, indicating the alarm is temporarily disabled.
Locate the box for the alarm under the dashboard on the driver's side of the car. Then, look for the override button on the box. Typically, the small button is either red or black. With the ignition key in the "on" position, press the override button and hold it in until the alarm chirps once. This disables the alarm until you manually reactivate it.
To reactivate the alarm, turn the key to the "on" position and press the override button once. The alarm chirps twice, indicating the alarm is active.
The only way to disarm these alarms is with the factory remote or turning on the ignition. To turn off the factory alarm.
Ok, do you have the remotes? If so, let's ID the system. Go to www.KEYLESSRIDE.com & use th fcc #s on the back of it.
If not try this:
Programming Factory Security on GM Cars and Trucks Instructions for programming the GM factory security systems that do NOT disarm from the driver's door key cylinder. This programming is for the cars and trucks listed below.
Step #2 Remove the radio fuse only (not the fuse that says acc/radio).
Step #3 Turn the key to the accessory position. When you do this you will get two chirps from the door buzzer. Should you hear only one chirp, your vehicle does not have factory security and these instructions do not apply. You need to hear two chirps.
Step #4 Press the unlock switch on the door. This will give 1-4 chirps depending on the program step. Continue pressing the unlock switch until you get to the desired chirp setting. 1 Chirp - Security off 2 Chirps - Remote Only 3 Chirps - Factory Setting 4 Chirps - Passive Arming
Same here... I have a 1998 Toyota Avalon XL. My car battery died. Replaced my car battery, but found out that when you unplug and plug the car battery with this car it engages in security mode (I have factory car alarm). This disables the engine and wont let you turn the ignition aka start the car engine until the remote (keyless entry) "UNLOCK" is applied. My remote is also lost so I cannot disable the alarm.
The only thing I can think of to do is unplug the battery again to disable everything (car alarms are annoying...) and call the dealer to pick the car up and perform the diagnosis. Most likely they will offer you another keyless (ugh... expensive) and/or you could ask to disable the factory car alarm.
I know thats not much help but it seems to be the only option from what I researched currently....
The 2003 Saturn Vue is equipped with the Passlock II system
The factory alarm can be programmed on or off using the factory remote. To turn the factory alarm on or off, turn the ignition on and press the PANIC button 8-10 times in 5 seconds. Within 3 seconds press UNLOCK to turn off the alarm or LOCK to turn on the alarm.
