Hi,

Depending on the type of vehicle you can but not usually. The alarm would have tripped off due to the battery going flat thats why you could not open the doors with the remote, or switch the alarm off.

The only way you can disengage the alarm is to remove the alarm relay and bypass it.
But unfortunately we can not give you this type of information as it can be used in a ' negative way ' or thieft of vehicles.

But for you, just fit a good battery and then you should beable to switch the alarm off with the remote.

Hope this helped.

Jason

try replacing remote batteries, but must have a second programmed key to reset first one in case its gets uncoded, best advise do not take long time to replace battery, if problem persist have a good honest mechanic inspect door key cylinder security switch if it is not disconnected, but before you do this, if right side front door or rear door has cylinder try opening vehicle from this doors, if they unlock vehicle and alarm doesn't go off you might have problems inside driver's door cylinder switch, on this year vehicle must use STAR SCANNER from chrysler jeep dodge to solve problems

Assuming you have a second key try using that one to deactivate the alarm, if not replace battery in remote. Does lock and unlock work now? you will need to get the remote operational to disengage the security feature that will not allow car to start.
if not disconnect the car battery let sit for 15 min to reset system try again..make sure bettery in remote is installed properly.

Keyless entry stopped working on 05 cobalt now i have to unlock door with the key and when i do that the alarm goes off. Help


Lock all the doors from the inside (with all the doors closed), unlock your driver's door by manually lifting the lock, then press it back down after you are out - this will prevent the alarm from sounding when you use the key to unlock the door.
