I really do not know
My expertise is w/ older Jeep CJs, using the Smith and Wesson type alarm systems.
I have been here a good while, and I read up on what happens to to newer stuff, as my wife will not drive a CJ!
This may not be exact--and others can and will, jump in and correct me.
Try this, or a variation of this. Just attemting to get you a quick, hopefully effective answer.
I do not remember exactly whether you unlock all of the doors w/ the key-less or not, or whether doing it with the driver's door button will be acceptable (this would be the experiment part!)
To continue with the procedure, manually lock (now "unlocked doors") each door on your rig (meaning: open each door, lock each with your fingers!). Many Space Age Born, do not really know what "manual" means anymore!
Then go to the drivers door and unlock it manually with the key, from outside
This supposedly will reset it
If it does not work, don't fret, someone else will be along to correct me!

Your driver's side keyfog has a switch that is damaged and needs replacement. What is going on is this: when you enter the key and turn it, the keyfob switch does not act dissabling the alarm. Next, when you open the door, the door open swhitch (which is a different switch) lights the interior lights and the alarm module interprets this as an intrussion and triggers the alarm outloud. So, all you need to do is to locate the switch in the extreme of the door keyfob and replace it. In my jeep such keyfob comes sealed with the switch so both things need to be replaced.

I fix the alarm system, I had to buy a new key and remote. No more alarm going off. The remote controls everything.
