check all the alarm switches, the switches on the doors, the rear hatch, and the hood. work them up and down see if they feel funny. one bad switch will make the whole unlock/alarm system act funny.

Mine started doing something funny. Maybe I am not doing it right.

When I lock the doors with the key, I hear the beep. When I unlock the front door with the key, the alarm goes off until I stick the key into the ignition!

What is up with that?

This is what it is supposed to do. It is the anti-theft device. It will go off if you unlock the passenger door or open any of the doors hood or back hatch.
Do not worry about this. :mellow:

Check your horn to see if it is working correctly. I had an issue with the horn not working. I thought the alarm was not working but found it to be the horn was out. I guess that I drove through a large puddle of water. and it got full of water, and it killed it. :thumbsup:
