Default Alarm not allowing truck to start.

I saw a previous thread about disabling after market alarms but I couldn't find what was decribed in the forum on my truck. I had the battery drain because a light left on. When I tried to jump the battery the alarm that I didn't know I had and don't have a fob for started its siren. Of course the truck won't start either. I cut the wires to the sirens just to quiet them. the wires to them trace back to the radio. I can still hear the flashers clicking. I can't identify a reset button or switch anywhere under the dash and can't identify anymore wiring associated with this alarm system. Any thoughts on how to get my truck going again?

Do you have a picture of the siren. If it is the same as the one in my old truck it would be a Mopar unit and would have a little red button on the lower left side of the knee bolster, left of the steering wheel. The red button has a push in type actuator. If you can give some pictures and more info it will help. When the alarm actuates there should also be a red led flashing.

Red face Truck won't start after replacing battery

I am having a similar problem with the security. The truck was setting for a month or so and the battery went dead and was unable to be jumped. Purchased a new battery and installed it. After putting the cables on the new battery the horn started going crazy. After pushing the buttons on the key fob several times it finally stopped the horn blowing. The problem is now the truck won't start at all. All of the lights work, the radio works, etc. However, the gas gauge and odometer reading won't work. The red alarm light is on and sometimes flashes. We have the grey keys and have tried both keys. We tried locking and unlocking the truck with both keys, both key fobs, we pulled fuse # 20 and putting it back in and it still won't start. The dealer is saying we may have to have it towed and have it reset somehow. That sounds very $$$. Anyone have any ideas? I've never heard of a problem like this from just having a dead battery. Thank you.
