    insert into driver door and unlock it. If it DOES NOT disarm this way, you have a bad door latch as well.

    When you turn the key to unlock or lock twice, do all the other doors lock or unlock?

    problem solved,
    open the car with the key, started te engine which stopped the alarm then turned it off again, this must have reprogrammed the fob becuase it now works

    Re: HELP, cant turn off the car alarm without the key fob and its battery is dead

    You have an underlying issue here and you need to check it out. When you turn the key in the door to unlock, it disables the alarm. If it does not, then you have a bad latch or a bad wire (much less likely in your car) to the latch. The problem may be sporadic.
