Default 1999 900SE Alarm wont stop, how do I reset

I went to start my 900se Convert today and they when I opened the door the alarm went off for about 10-15 seconds? I got in the car and it stopped, tried to start the car, alarm went off again. These are the original keys, fobs have never worked. Is there a way to avoid going to the dealer for reprogramming?

If only the alarm is sounding, and you can unlock the car and start it, I would unplug or remove the siren unit entirely. It's located behind the plastic wheel well cover on the drivers side (LHD) of the car. It's on the rear side of the wheel well, not the front side like the 9-5s... Ron

This happened to me once. After work i tried to unlock my car with the FOB, but the FOB was out of batteries. With the alarm armed, i could get into my car with the key (with a ton of noise from the alarm) but it wouldn't let me start the engine, trying to start merely triggered the alarm again. I think it's bad design that the malfunction of loss of a FOB can cripple the car completely. I had to have a friend drive me home.
