this usually means that the remote did not recieve a signal back from the module or the module did not recieve the remote signal
have you tried repeatively to press the unlock button? does the remote starter work or aux( trunk ) ?
also when putting the battery in the remote , be easy because there is a connector plug soldered on the board real close to where the battery is , and if it is hit by the battery hard enough it will cause those solder connections to disconnect and you will get the beeps and or other malfunctions

i have this alarm also.... for starters your batteries are dead, so get those when you get a chance. (best buy or radio shack) for now you can manually over ride your alarm... what you when need to do is get into your car by using the key, and the alarm is going to go off
1. locate your antenna, which is going to have your blue LED and a square push button. usually at the top of your windshield
2. while the alarm is going off, you will need to put the key in the ignition and turn to the on position, ofcourse it isn't going to crank.
3. within 5 sec of turning the key on, you will need to push the valet button( button on the antenna next to the blue LED) 1 time, release, then push it a 2nd time but hold it down until the alarm shuts off, this will allow you to start the car with the key. if it doesn't work the first time, turn the key off and try it again
the default is 1 press, the pushing it one more time and holding, but it can be programmed by whoever installed to be 1-5. hints, pressing it 2X the holding on the 3, or 3X then holding on the 4 ect

You must change the doors trigger connection if you have a negative input change it to positive input or vise versa and try. I’m sure that this is going to end your problems or the smart way is, take it back to Best Buy
