I'm not sure if I understand what you are saying.. what happens?
Push the electric lock button on the switch panel on the drivers door.
Close door and use one of the aftermarket remotes to unlock or start the car. Factory alarm will start up.
Be ready with the key to unluck the door or factory fob (electric door switch and aftermarket fob won't work) to shut the alarm off.
The installer forgot to hook up the wire to the "factory alarm disarm." This is usually a green wire on GM vehicles. For the Bonneville it'* most easily reached under the rear seat. The problem is that the aftermarket "brain" for the remote start isn't disarming the factory alarm, which it should do.

I had a system like this on my Cutlass...same exact thing. Worked like a charm.

I've known several people having problems with aftermarket remote starters including my brother. I don't want anybody messing with the electrical on my 03 though...I can deal with the cold for a few minutes. At least my butt will be warm.

the trick is on remote starters, get good ones, and make sure it has a good warranty....also make sure it is installed by people who know what they are doing.

Sometimes you don't really know if they know what they are doing until you start having problems. Of course getting referrals from friends is always beneficial.
