So I didn't have the remote key fob today. My car was locked. I used the key to open the car from the trunk. I turned the key and the lock popped up. The second I opened the trunk the alarm went off!! How stupid is that. I had to put the key in the driver's side door to unlock the door to shut off the alarm. This doesn't make any sense to me.<p>Speaking of this...I need a second remote key fob. How much should this run me?

Re: Why did the alarm go off? (soledoc)

If the alarm was set by the remote and you opened it with the KEY you must unlock the rest of the doors<B> by reaching on the armrest </B>and unlocking the rest of the doors with the door switch FIRST or it thinks someone is breaking in.<br>Makes total sense

OK...so if I lock it manually with the key and then open the trunk with the key, the alarm won't go off right?
