This is how it is done. I called a dealer.

How many remotes do you have? if more than one, you MUST have ALL remotes with you when you do this process.

1. Collect all remotes for the car, have them with you in the car.
2. Put the key in the ignition switch.
3. Get in car car, DOORS MUST BE CLOSED.
4. Turn the key from OFF position to the On position (II position) 5 times times, on the 5th time leave the key in the On position, then you press any button on the remotes you have. They should at that point be reset.

That is it.

Hi guys,
I came on here but like you guys didn't find the answer to the actual question, " how to reset alarm once it's armed if your door switches won't work? "
Now although the central locking still worked once the door is open the alarm goes off and then your in trouble cos you can't drive it even with the key in, as its suposed to its immobilised, the old on off with the key will not work , but if you put the key in within 10 seconds and turn ignition on and hold in the start position after a few seconds the alarm resets, now program your alarm fob, With new batteries fitted first, as it appears if your unlucky enough for batteries to fail once alarm is set you get this senario we have just been through. I have just done this last night as my batteries failed while I was at work, lucky I had a spare set, but then the above problem started . Took 2 hrs to find solution but he it is, hope it helps someone.
