I was shopping and when I came out my alarm went on - I turned the door key, other door key, trunk key but to no avail - the alarm kept going off and finally shut down the whole car. I put the key in the ignition and nothing - the car sits in a lot and I am totally depressed

the valet key doesnt have a transponder chip in it, so it will allow physical turning of keyways and operations, but will not disable the alarm and often wont disable the immobilizer.
sorry to say i think you will need to get an autolocksmith , or main dealer to get you a functioning key with transponder chip mapped to your cars rfid system that will allow alarm to be enabled /disabled
You need to disable the alarm with the key in the door. Hook the battery up, then just stick the key in the door and unlock it. If you have door lock problems, you should be able to disable the alarm by opening the trunk with the key.
Serouly. If it's the same as my '05 Stratus R/T then look at where the doors shuts on the interior trim and look for a activator that stays closed when you shut the door. open it and unplug it. There you go. No more alarm set off when you open your door.
My 2000 Beetle does same thing (although not all the time). Just found an internet post that suggests there is a problem in the door lock sensor. I assume you are using a regular key - not
the keyless entry - like I am. He also said that you can disable the alarm (also disables the
keyless entry - which doesn't bother me) by leaving the front door AND the rear trunk open and
starting the car up. Seems to work so far. I will get the door lock sensor replaced and turn the
alarm system back on (not sure how yet), and let you know if that stops the problem.
Sounds like you have an aftermarket alarm with starter disable. By disconnecting the battery the alarm reset and the defualt setting is usually to set the alarm automatically (active arming). You have three options.. A. If you have the key fob that went with the alarm you can disarm the alarm. B. If no key fob is available you can disconnect the battery again, turn the ignition key to the on position and reconnect the battery. This usually doesn't allow the alarm to set and allows the car to start. C. Remove the aftermarket alarm system. This is usually the long term fix i recommend if the fob isn't available. Option B should get you going though.
Sounds like 2 problems. One a low battery. When you used the laptop you might have drained the battery of the vehicle. The alarm sounds like broken wires in door harnesses between the doors and frame. Remove the rubber seal beween the door and body of the car and look for cracked and broken wires. If they are broken or touching it can cause many wierd problems. Once you locate it which is easy you can show a certified mechanic and he or she can repair or replace the harness.
We have a similar problem - it doesn't go off when we open the door,
but sometimes the alarm light stays on after we open the door and then
when we put the key in the ignition to start the car the alarm goes
off. The only thing we've found to shut the alarm off is to get out of
the car and put the key in the trunk manually and open the trunk. Then
after we've opened and closed the trunk, the alarm disables and then we
can unlock the doors (which I believe is the step where the alarm
disables) and then we can start the car without a problem.
