    battery is good cleaned the terminals works fine. I think it's the alarm system that is acting up the only way to get in the truck is by the remote.

    Around $26,000 worth of unleaded in the fuel tank.
    Your door lock cylinder has an electrical switch in it, and the alarm has current sensing. The alarm is working the way it's supposed to work.

    Why would you want to unlock a door with the alarm on anyhow? Is there something special you're trying to do?

    is it an aftermarket alarm system?

    I had one, I disabled the horn of the alarm...there should be an re-set button, turn the key halfway while holding the button until the alarm shuts off.
