Unhappy unalble to disarm the security alarm

I just had a problem with the security system on my 99 durango SLT. The car alarm suddenly turned on when I open the door and I just couldn't turn it off. The bad thing is I didn't have the remote so I had no idea how to disarm the security system. I have disconnected the battery, but durango still holding alarm state so I couldn't start the engine.
Is there anyway to turn off the alarm without the remote? I have been driving my durango without the remote(didn't come with) , but never had a problem until today.
The strange thing is When I closed and locked the door completely, all the locks became unlocked after about 20 minutes later. This happened twice today, and I was sure there was nobody tried to do something bad to my car.
Is this because there is something wrong with the computer? or Do I just need to buy a remote?
My durango is still in the parking lot of Target! Need a little help!

From my FSM,

DISARMING
Passive disarming of the VTSS occurs when the
vehicle is unlocked using the key to unlock either
front door or the liftgate and, if the vehicle is
equipped with the optional Sentry Key Immobilizer
System (SKIS), by turning the ignition switch to the
On position using a valid SKIS key. Active disarming
of the VTSS occurs when the vehicle is unlocked by
depressing the “Unlock” button of the RKE transmitter.
Once the alarm has been activated either disarming
method will also deactivate the alarm.
Depressing the “Panic” button on the RKE transmitter
will not disarm the VTSS.

thank you for your response.
Suppose, my durango has is equipped with the optional Sentry Key Immobilizer System(which I don't know). would I still be able to disarm without having a remote? I think I unlocked the liftgate when I took out my tools to disconnect the battery.

Your 99 wont have the SKIM key Or Sentry key. Alot of times what happens is the key on the driver side because of excessive use the switch goes bad that turns off the alarm. Try the passenger door or the liftgate. If that fails you can always disarm the system manually by tapping the disarm wire. Let me know if the other 2 dont work and i will walk you thru tapping the disarm wire. it is fairly simple.

Did you read what I posted? "....

a regular key's handle is 1/4" thick, the SKIS key is 5/16".
