Default Wife Lost Remote Keyless Entry, Car will NOT start with key only --HELP

As the title of the thread states.....

She lost her keys with the Remote Keyless Entry fob. I've tried to start the car with my spare key, but every time I try, the factory alarm goes off, and the only way I can get it to shut up is disconnect the battery. Well I let it sit over night with the battery disconnected, and I hoped today I could re-connect the battery and start it. But no Luck.... Some how, it remembers not having the RKE fob disarm it. Saturn did TOO good of a job with the alarm system. Has anyone encountered this? Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks in advance.

I'd suggest contacting a Saturn retailer. They should be able to help.

SatrnFreek, my daughter's car is the same way, can't start it without the remote. If you figure this out would you please post the answer?

On most cars, will the alarm auto shut off after like 2 mins? Then when it does turn off it disables everything and then you can start your car will the spare key?

This is from the manual for my 97 for the situation when the transmitter is lost.

Use key to open door. Alarm will sound for about 2 minutes.
After alarm stops, turn ignition to run.
Remove key from ignition
After about 30 minutes the car should start.
