The alarm light was on solid, and it kept randomly unlocking and locking on the rest of my way in. After about 5 minutes it stopped, then the alarm light just went out, and when I got to the garage at work, it would restart, however the fob no longer locks the car.

Its some sh!tty Clifford alarm that I've never liked, so I don't particularly care if its dead, but I gots big issues if its going to keep preventing the car from starting.
This is funny b/c it reminds me of what happened to me one time. I was leaving gamestop video store and went to unlock my car with key fob...nothing, the battery was dead. Therefore I used my key to unlock the door and alarm would not stop going off. I tried everything, including unhooking the battery and once rehooked it went off again. I had to drive 10 minutes home and went off the entire way like I stole the car Got home and turned it off with my spare key fob. Was pretty embarassin untill I thought of it looking like I stole the car then it was hilarious to see everyones faces.
