My truck was shut off. I got out locked the doors, forgot something, turned around and opened the door from the inside handle through the window the alarm was set off and it would not start or shut the alarm off. I disconnected battery it sat overnight, and it still will not start, and the alarm still goes off until battery is disconnected again forgot my key n cannot get to it now. Is there a way to reset security by changing fuses and battery?
