Stan :

I suggest to have the car's battery charged up first of all. If it is empty enough, the key will not be recognized. The siren on your car might have an independent battery.
If the main battery is fully charged up, then try to start the car with a spare key.
Switching the ignition on with properly working key will deactivate factory alarm.
