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.
a work around for when you turn the key to the unlock position and alarm goes off.
Turn the key back to the lock position.
Turn the key back to the unlock position. The alarm should now be disabled.
hope it helps a little
You can take the door handle off the drivers side and replace the tumblers in the key slot or just remove the tumbler pieces and then any key will turn in the lock. What really matters is that you have to center the door latch lock piece with a lock or a flat screw driver.the line up should be straight up and down in side the door you can see it when you get the door handle off.
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.
