turning off anti theft alarm while having broken door locks

Asked by Araketu22 May 17, 2019 at 11:03 PM about the 1996 Nissan Maxima

Question type: General

I had my car broken into and they jammed the end of a scissor into both of my
door locks and now i can't use my key to unlock or lock my doors. Had to
have AAA come and unlock the door when I locked myself out of my car. When
they did the anti theft alarm came on and I had to disconnect the battery. Now
my car won't start and any time I hook up the battery the alarm goes off. I tried
taking the fuse for the horn and the anti theft out but that still didn't help with
getting my car to start back up. Any suggestions???
