You can try resetting the alarm first before disconnecting it and check out. The reset procedure is as follows:-- You don't need the remotes to disable the factory alarm. Have the driver's door open, lock the doors with the door button. 
Close the door and unlock the driver's door with the key.
-------- This problem mostly comes up due to battery disconnecting. The worst thing anyone can do is start removing fuses and disconnecting the battery. If the battery is disconnected and hooked back up on either factory or after market security, the alarm will trigger.

Resetting the factory alarms and the PASS-LOCK system. The correct way takes 30 min. Key on for 10 min, off and back on for 10 min, off and back on for 10 more minutes.

This goes to everyone with a factory alarm system that is triggered. NEVER DISCONNECT THE BATTERY because the system just rearms when you hook it back up and now you need to reset your digital heating, your stereo and other things. NOTE:-- The programming methods won't work if the power locks are not working.------------- If the above mentioned procedure is not helping then try this procedure as follows:--  Disconnect one of the battery cables, then turn the ignition key to the run position (not start position) and reconnect the battery. This sometimes will put the alarm in valet mode.
If this is also not helping then the alarm needs to be disabled.But this is not advisable. Still the procedure is as follows:-- To Disarm/Disable It.
To start with, you can identify which system you have by using the FCC. ID.# found on the back of each remote. 
Put the system into overide mode.
As far as the valet/overide button, it's a hidden
device-switch, a little spring loaded micro button,
red or black possibly and is probably down under
the dash area, near your knee/leg. In some
remote start/alarm combos, the antenna on the window
glass will also have an override/valet button.
Older sytems will have a flip type toggle switch.
When you locate the button or switch,
turn on the ignition key, press and hold
in the button until the alarm chirps 1 time
(for toggle types, key on, flip switch in the
opposite direction, then key off)
This should over ride the system, and only the
keyless entry part, if installed, would still be
You would get a single chirp to confirm from the siren.
The LED (light emiting diode) light in the dash
should also go on solid. This is valet/overide/reset.
This should correct any issues like starter disable,
or anti-hijack. Your keyless entry, if installed,
will still be operable. The have it inspected for the
falsing issues you are experience at a local shop.
You would repeat the same steps to toggle
back into user mode.
That should do it for 90% of the  alarms 
out there.
Thanks. Keep updated for any more query. You can rate this solution and show your appreciation.
