Question Disable Car Alarm Honking??

Ok, heres the deal:

My key fob doesnt work anymore (tried new batteries, nothing)
So I'm stuck unlocking my car with my key now.
When I do this, the car alarm goes off EVERY SINGLE TIME when I open the door.
This is annoying as hell, and is there ANY way I can disable this?

The only way to get it to stop honking is if I crank the car up.
Which is a pain in the ass if I just need to get something out of my car.


Thanks guys
Garrett


EDIT: 9-26-10 here is how I fixed my key fob temporarily.

Ok, so i can apparently push down on the locks instead of using the lock button and that will not enable the alarm when I go to unlock it with my key.

Ill check in a bit
Still looking to see if anyone knows a seakret way to disable the alarm

Ok, so if I manually press down the locks before I get out of the car, it wont honk when I unlock it with the key.
Thats a start

Yeah if you manually lock the door and use the key the alarm won't start.

I dread the day this happens to me. Besides manually locking the doors, the only other option I know of is unplugging the horn (which probably isn’t the best thing to do).
