Try removing the alarm system relay, some car alarm has also a fuse on the alarm that you can remove.
Many car alarms unlock by inserting and turning car key while you connect the battery.

I had the same issue on my '01 530i. The window stayed in one place and I could hear the motor going up and down. It took me 30 mins to fix both the Driver's window and the front Pass window. Remove the door panel, then pull back the plastic liner. There are 2 clamps that hold on to the window. You will need to loosen these 2 clamps (that ride on vertical guides), either find the rubber pads (2 per clamp) that wedge between the glass and the clamp. (one on each side of the clamp.) or purchase new ones. Replace these rubberpads, slide the window back into place. Gently snug up the clamps, and carefully raise the window until it seals. This will set its position. Now tighten up the clamps again. Done. One other issue that sometimes occurs is that there is a plastic clip that needs to be replaced that holds the cable to the clamps, but normally only one clip goes at a time and the window will twist and some times break. That doesn't sound like your issue. Good luck.

the same thing happened to my 1996 jetta trek.
when the alarm went off on me and the car would not start i walked around to the passenger door, locked and unlocked it, therefore the alarm went off.
but the alarm only went off if the car battery was low and had trouble starting.
