The alarm going off is normal. Yes it will quit when it is fixed. Things to check first before you buy another door latch. First , unplug the plugs and plug them back in, see if it works. Corrosion make them loose contact. Next would be checking for power and ground at the plug. You will have to cycle the locks to check for this. If no power or ground. Then at the front of the door jam, you will see a rubber boot. It pops off both sides. This usually where wires break.

SOURCE: power door locks do not work

the reason the locks dont work more then likely there is a code stored in the bcm for a lock output circuit normally caused by one if not both of the sliding door acuators. even if you change the acuators the locks still will not work until the code is cleared.

Sounds like the link rod to the latch are jammed in the locked position by something inside the door or it came off. Any way, you have to remove the door panel to get access to it.

Try "clearing the cache" by removing the negative battery cable for a few minutes. Before doing so, be sure you know how to reset the clock and radio codes & presets.

SOURCE: 2005 Grand Caravan power door lock quit working.

The lock actuator is probably broken in that door. We got one of the internet for 80$ and replaced it outselves and it solved this problem. IOD fuse is very temporary fix as system is sensing problem and flipping to protect itself like the breaker switches in the house.

1996 saturn door locks have stopped working on the inside

If they are electric locks, you could have a bad switch in the drivers door.  I had a similar problem.  The locks made a noise from time to time like they were rapidly locking and unlocking for 5 seconds at a time.  I replaced the toggle switch (lock/unlock) in the door and that fixed the problem.
