So whenever i unlock my doors, the alarm goes off

I just bought my 98 camaro, v6, back in june, it comes with a remote starter that also has a lock button on it that occasionally works, so everytime i exit my car after parking it, i press the lock door button on the door, so both doors lock, later when coming back out to unlock my car doors, i put the key in the driver side door, open it, and right then the alarm goes off, then i have to rush into my car and start it up or else everyone will just look over and be suspicious, so if someone could help me out, i would really appreciate it, and instead of starting another topic, my remote started, it works, and can i drive without the keys in the ignition or do they have to be in, and i noticed, is the only way to shut the car after remote starting to press the button again?

Re: So whenever i unlock my doors, the alarm goes off

Well, I had a remote start in my Chevy Truck, it was aftermarket from the dealer. It pretty much ran off of it's own system, I had two fobs, one was the remote start fob and the other was the orginal that came with the truck. They are pretty much two different systems, I used to do the same thing, I would use the after market fob to lock and arm the car, then use the factory one to unlock it, which set the alarm off everytime. So I had to use one or the other, not both. Hope this helps.

Re: So whenever i unlock my doors, the alarm goes off

If the system gets armed with the remote you then have to then later disarm the alarm by hitting an unlock button on the remote. This will turn off the alarm. By arming it with the remote and then unlocking the door and opening it the alarm is still active and should sound off.
If you can remote start the car and then drive, steer it, and use the brakes without the keys being in the ignition then it is wired wrong and probably the column is broke as most late model columns do not allow the shifter to be moved out of park (unless it's a manual transmission) and key cylinder is also tied into a steering shaft lock.
I would find the main brain for the remote starter system and find out who made it and get an owner's manual for it so you know how it should work (although who knows what options might be wired into it also).
