    CoolAlarm Challenge

    We just bought our 97 Catera a few months ago. Today my wife called and said that whenever she opens the door, the alarm goes off. We do not have the keyless entry remote, but haven't had a challenge before.

    Is there a button under the dash or something I can do to deactivate this?

    How is she locking the car? Is she using the central lock system in the side of the door on the inside, locking it with the door open and then closing it? Or is she locking it with her key?

    I think the same thing happened to me with my 98 catera. Simply close the door and use your key to lock and unlock the door and it will shut off the alarm. Hope that works for you.
