Default Security Alarm goes off every time I open the door

Hey there,
So I have a 2008 Ranger that I bought not too long ago. Everything was working great (like a 2008 should) until one day when I unlocked my doors the alarm went off. I could not shut it off for the longest time and it did it every time. I found the reset switch just under near the brake pedal ad I was able to shut it off. The truck didn't come with remote key fobs so I was just using the key to get it. Right now however I need to lock my doors manually to avoid the alarm going off when I come back to the truck. I'm 21 and almost done university so I can't right now take it in to the garage. Truck is still under warranty maybe it is covered? It is the factory alarm. Please help!

It could be a factory alarm you can take it to the dealership they will be able to tell. They might can get you a remote as well.

question: why isn't there a remote key fob? if your ranger has an alarm, Ford would have given you a key fob when you purchased the truck back in 2008.

I bought it used in August of 2010 off a used lot, it didn't come with a key fob. I know, I thought it was unusual as well.

----------

Thanks for the feedback guys!

If the dealership wont honor the key fab warranty, Just get them off ebay and I think they come with programming instructions
