Unlocking by Key Sets off Alarm...?

I hope this is the right place to put this, I don't see another place that it'd really fit perfectly into.

So my remote broke (fixed it now though) and I was having to use my key to unlock my car. I can't say how annoying that is in itself, but ontop of that, my alarm goes off everytime I unlock my car with the key. Any clue why this is doing this? It's just the "little beep alarm", but eventually turns into the full alarm if the car is not turned on.

Its just the anti theft feature doing its job. Its normal, but yes rather annoying!

Alright... I suppose it's so anti-theft it doesn't even want the owner with a key taking off with it. :-P

Check your owners manual -- I think you can change it through the DIC so it won't honk by opening the door with the key.
