I put this car back on the road last week---my summer car

 

it has the stock alarm and fobs

 

So...I was not carrying the fob yet...was in my drawer at home

 

I was at home depot and locked the doors

I came out and unlocked the passenger side door and the alarm started blaring

 

Went around to drivers seat...put key in and tried turning on in hopes it would stop

It didn't and seemed to time out in 30 seconds or 45

 

I tried starting the car again...nothing...and the alarm started blaring again

Did this a few times regardless of the stares haha

 

I thought I was screwed and stuck and would have to call my sister to bring the fob

 

I decided to try rolling the car in the lot and pop starting it...thankfully there was a small incline

was not sure it would work...but it did

 

So.....how do I handle this alarm without the fob??? I am afraid to lock it now...and I don't like if I have to HAVE the fob at all times

thanks guys

the alarms in the 00 - 04 years are ALWAYS on unless you put it in valet mode.

only then can you open the door with a key and no alarm sound.

 

you can silence the alarm sound by turning the key on and off 3 times quickly, on the fourth ''on'' the car will start.

but it will still sound the alarm the next time you use the key to open the door.

 

the fob will cure all ills,

and you NEED it to go into valet mode and programming mode.
