2001 Chrysler LHS alarm goes off when I open driver door with key

I just bought a used Chrysler LHS and have a problem with the alarm system. Everything works fine with the alarm it seems, however, when I get out of the car, lock the doors with the keyless remote, and then open the door with the key (I didn't have a remote with my previous car so I'm quite unaccustomed to using one), the alarm goes off and the horn starts honking and the lights start flashing. I guess I should say that the door was open during this time, and I didn't shut it because it threw me for a loop. I just kept hitting the panic button and that eventually shut it up, but is there any way that I can open the door with the key and NOT have the alarm go off other than disabling the alarm (because I would like to keep it on if possible, but I'd also like to open my door with the key)? Thanks.

SOURCE: Remote car door opener got wet and won't work

Well first open it up completly. Remove the battery. Get a hair dryer and dry it out completly. Then let it stand for several hours to cool down. Make sure that the contacts where the battery fits are clean of any rust, or corrosion. Now install a new battery. It should work.

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.

1999 CONCORDE: check the battery terminals probably they are not tight enough...something like that happened to me just the lights turned on and the car seemed to be dead, the battery is still ok since then. I just needed to buy new terminals.

My 2000 Chrysler LHS alarm goes off hours after locking doors either manually or with remote. Unlocking the driver or passenger door will shut it off but how do I correct this problem?

I do not know how to "fix" the problem to make it right, but you can disable the alarm through the relay box or fuse box. You'll lose the alarm, but can lock the car. Several may be labeled "Alarm and... try to find one that is the alarm alone or something significant, if possible. Not an answer, just an Idea.

How can I get the alarm system to reset after it goes off? I did not know there was an aiarm system on the vehicle when I bought it.

Put the key in the driver door and lock/unlock it to reset the alarm. I'm guessing you reached through a window to open a locked door and set it off?

Lost keyless entry remote

The fuse for the alarm is under the hood. Give a good look and you should find it. Once you have pulled it it will deactivate the alarm I am not sure if this is exactly your problem since you said that the car wont start.... but it is worth a try.
