You will need to address the convertable top open switch to check for fauly switch this is done through the dealer there is a TSB 2015953 about this switch.When the alarm goes off in drive this can mean a misposition of the convertable top.There is also a software update with this TSB

Alarm will not stop sounding off...Truck wont start...Alarm will not disable...Doors will not unlock...Everytime I open the door from inside or outside alarms immediately begins and won"t...

make sure that the the remote's battery is still good otherwise it wont activate your vehicle but if it is equipped with an alarm ( your car), then possibly alarm stays on everytime you open your door with the key which has no chip in it. go get new battery for your remote.

1992 saab 9000 car won't start, try to jumpstart to go get new battery when we put cables on the alarm goes off take cables off alarm stops help!

Jumpstarting cars with electronic ignition is not a good idea. Your car is also fitted with an immobilizer, hence the alarm going off. Get someone to drive you to a place that sells suitable batteries, and fit the new one. You should be fine.
