May not be a solution, but do you have keyless entry? If so and you have the fob in your pocket, pulling the handle will open the door and should disable the alarm. If no keyless entry, check the child locks on the rear doors to be sure they are off. Also check the fuses for the door locks to be sure they are not blown, there may be more than one. Finally, do you have to press "lock" twice to lock all doors?
The reason your alarm system is going off is because you used a coat hanger to open the door. This only proves that the system WORKS! It simply thinks that you are trying to steal the car - so it is screaming about it to tell on you!
To get the alarm to turn off, close and lock all of the doors (don't forget the keys :) ) Then use the KEY to open the driver's door. This should disarm the system and the security light will stop flashing and the horn and headlams should turn off and everything should be back to normal.
Child Locks will stop anyone on the inside of the car from opening the door. If the child lock is on then the door can only be opened from the outside of the car. Of course the main door lock must be off just as any door must be unlocked to be opened from the outside.
Now if you do not want the child door lock to be on then you must first open the door from the outside with the main lock open or unlocked. Look at the space that is covered when the door is closed. There you will see the lever that turns the child lock on or off. Simply move it to the off position.
The key lock on the driver's side door is mechanically linked to a switch that turns the alarm on and off. You don't need a remote. Locking the door with the key turns the alarm on. Unlocking turns it off. I think the remote actually works through the same switch by mechanically locking or unlocking the door.
I've had a problem with mine intermittently setting off a false alarm as soon as the alarm is armed, which is about a minute after locking the door. It seems to be a problem with a switch in the trunk lid, because opening and closing the trunk is the only thing which relates to the problem appearing or not.
So my workaround, if the alarm is screwing up and I'm in a hurry, is to get out and walk around to the passenger side, open the door, press the dashboard door lock control to lock the doors, then close the door. That locks the doors without turning on the alarm system. To get back in I just use the remote or the door key.
Opening the drivers door with the key is supposed to shut down the factory security but the drivers key cylinder usually goes bad. You will have to unlock the rear tail gate lock cylinder with the key and that will shut down the factory security, before opening the drivers door.Your other option is to have an aftermarket keyless entry system installed, which will open the doors remotely while shut down the factory security at the same time.
battery of car is zapped of energy...not sure if alarm system to blame, after driving it for a few minutes..clock and radio display lights turn off, horn can barely be heard...sometimes, motor shuts down completely. have had to put in 2 new batteries in just a matter of 2 months?...any idea what this may be?
take the child lock off,and open the door as you would when the door is normally shut , i mean just pull up on the door handal like you do when opening it.it should spring back to its norma position. good luck
