The answer to your question, when you unlock your car manually, the alarm should deactivate. If it doesn't, there is a short in the driver side locking mechanism. The unit is probably stuck and needs to be lubricated. The whole door panel needs to be remove to access it. Your doors should work fine even if you unplug the alarm unit.
You can try removing the fuse(s) #18 and/or #21. The fuse box is located in the left hand/far end in the engine compartment.... Remove the cover to access the fuses, they will be numbered!!
Also, after trying the fuse option... you may want to disconnect hte battery and see if things reset themseves back to normal. My concern is your car not starting.
Where are you located? I'm in California. Send me an email with your phone number and I'll call you. I'll be home around 7:30 tonight (10:30 eastern time)
