    Hi there,
    My car alarm went off as I left a window slightly open, I tried turning it off with the keyfob as normal and nothing happened, naturally I **** myself and tried all kinds of things. Eventually after pressing the button by the drivers side post and locking by hand it's turned off.

    Now the keyfob doesn't work....

    I am sure someone here will have had this happen.

    It was working fine before the alarm went off so can't see why it would be that. The odd thing was that when the alarm was going off I couldn't get it to stop by pressing the keyfob lock/unlock.
    I've just tried pressing the lock button when in the second ignition position and that doesn't work either.
    It's as if it's stuck in a loop of alarm being on... Or not?
