When it is locked, to unlock it you have to go a certain way or an alarm will go off. Some one unlocked it the wrong way and when I onlock it I have to put the key in the engine and the alarm goes off. How can I stop this.

FRONT DOOR LOCK CYLINDER CONTACT SWITCH
Remove front door lock cylinder contact switch. Using DVOM, check for voltage at lock cylinder contact switch connector White/Red and Red/Green wires. If voltage is not 4.0 volts, go to next step. If voltage is 4.0 volts, go to step 3.
Repair short or open in Red/Green and White/Red wires between contact switch harness connector and Electronic Time & Alarm Control Module (ETACM) connector " A" terminals A13 and A14.
Rotate complete square portion of front door lock cylinder contact switch counterclockwise. Using DVOM, check continuity between White/Red and Black wires. Also check continuity between Red/Green and Black wires. If continuity exists between White/Red and Black wires, and does not exist between Red/Green and Black wires, go to next step. If continuity is not as specified, replace front door lock cylinder contact switch.
