Try locking and unlocking the drivers door 3 or 4 times with an original key to reset the alarm. You may have to go to the dealer to have the alarm reset with their scan tool.

Try disconnecting the battery for an hour and let the system try to reset properly. If it continues to malfunction, it sounds like the alarm module has failed.
