Ah! Now we're getting a bit more information. Same advice applies. The simplest sources of information are user manuals and service manuals, not forgetting the manufacturer. Presumably the keyless remote functions OK othwise? If you are no further forward after this then ask an alarm specialist.

To reset the security system remove the negative battery cable for 30 minutes, then reconnect the cable. Next, lock and unlock the doors using the remote. This will reset the alarm system and the engine will start and fobs reset.
Here are some factory notes....FYI
NOTE: If a new Smart Entrance Control Module (SECU) is installed, a new identity code must be entered and all remote controllers must be programmed. If identity code cannot be entered, repair multi-remote system. See appropriate MULTI-REMOTE CONTROL SYSTEMS article.
PROGRAMMING > PROGRAMING NEW ID CODE
NOTE: This procedure will erase all previous identity codes and render all previously programmed remote controllers inoperative (until reprogrammed). All remote controllers to be used with system must be programmed at the same time. A maximum of 4 remote controllers can be programmed. Any attempt to program more than 4 controllers will be ignored. If same identity code is entered more than once, entry is ignored even though hazard warning lights will still flash twice.
1. Close and lock all doors. Erase original identity code(s) by inserting and completely removing key from ignition switch more than 6 times within 10 seconds. Hazard warning lights should flash twice. Turn ignition switch to ACC position.
2. Push any button on new remote controller once. Hazard warning lights should flash twice, indicating identity code has been entered. If identity code cannot be entered, repair multi-remote system. See appropriate MULTI-REMOTE CONTROL SYSTEMS article.
3. For each additional remote controller to be programmed, manually release door lock and lock again by using door panel switch and repeat step 2. If no additional remote controllers are to be used, exit programming mode by unlocking and opening driver's door.
Please let me know if you need anything else to get the problem fixed. Happy mew Year!
Access alarm system control module. It is located on the at the facia panel in the center. Once you have found this module, ensure that the memory switch is in the OFF position. Then turn the ignition on. Wait 5 seconds and set the memory switch to SET position and then press the remote transmitter lock button to send the code to the alarm system control module. If you would like to program a second remote transmitter then you will need to press second remote transmitter lock button. Next set the memory switch to off, then turn the ignition off. You can confirm your programming by locking and unlocking the vehicle with both of the remotes.
If it is a factory alarm it can be disabled by locking and unlocking either the trunk or drivers door. if it is an aftermarket alarm (one installed after the car was purchased) you would have to get a new remote and get it programmed or take the car to a mechanic and have it removed
The alarm is doing what it is suppose to do, disable the car if taken by a unauthorized user. You prove you are authorized by having the remote. You don't have the remote, you are not authorized. Simple.
How to solve: Get a new remote or kill the alarm and loose the protection it provides.
You need to find the remote. Once you do,you can use it to turn off the alarm by pressing the unlock button. You can also try pressing the unlock button on the door panel but, I don't know if that will work. You might have to have another remote programed for the vehicle. You can also try putting the key in the door lock and unlocking it.
