Hello,

Disconnect the battery For 30 minutes, then hook it back up again.

Close all doors, engine hood and luggage compartment door (trunk lid) and lock the car wait 30 minutes and unlock the drivers door with the key or remote this should work.

Please let us know if you need anything else to get the problem fixed.

Cheers, Ken

No you need a pro to read any codes as the code readers won't read any thing other than engine/trans and some can read abs. So it will have to go to a service center

CHECKING THEFT DETERRENT SYSTEM WARNING (ALARM) OPERATION
Ensure theft deterrent system is set and indicator light is blinking. When hood is opened or any door is unlocked without using key, vehicle horns and theft deterrent horn will sound, and headlights and taillights will flash for approximately one minute. If doors are not locked when alarm is sounding, theft deterrent system will repeat door locking operation every 2 seconds during the one-minute alert time.
CANCELING THEFT DETERRENT SYSTEM SETTING (ALARM SOUNDING)
When system is set (armed) and the alarm is sounding, use one of the following methods to cancel the system setting:
Unlock left or right door with key.
Unlock doors with wireless door lock control system.
Insert key into ignition cylinder and turn to ACC or ON position.
Wait approximately one minute after alarm has sounded. After one minute, theft deterrent system will automatically reset in about 2 seconds if all doors are closed.

Disconnect theft deterrent ECU connectors. Measure voltage or resistance between following theft deterrent ECU connector T3 terminals. See Fig. 1. If voltage or resistance is not as specified, repair wire harness or replace components as necessary. If voltage and resistance are as specified, theft deterrent ECU may be faulty.
