Thanks, good idea. I tried hitting the passenger door lock buttons on the door panel and the only one that did anything was the unlock button. It clicked and it opened all doors. I manually locked all doors and walked away and before I got a few feet away, all locks popped up again. The only way I seem to be able to lock all my doors right now is to turn the engine on, and use the remote to lock all doors. I open the driver door manually, exit, and manually push that lock down and so far they seem to be staying locked. I spoke too soon because the locks popped up again minutes later.
I think in the past I held the remote lock button down, or the unlock button down for a few seconds until the car chimed, and that deactivated the alarm and allowed me to lock the doors manually without the car horn honking when I open the doors with my key. I can't remember what sequence to do to deactivate the alarm but I did it once in the past when I had this problem before. Whatever I did, it worked and I locked all doors manually until the other day when the passenger caused this problem.
