Both alarms going off WTF?

Wrap your head around this one guys! I'm pulling the Mustang out of the garage today and had to pull the ZJ over to the side. Tucked it away in the back corner, no problem. Go to take it out a couple hours later the OEM alarm starts going off with the regular horn. NEVER has that gone off before. I bought the car with a DEI aftermarket alarm hasn't given me a problem. So while the horn alarm is going off I get in to try to start no luck. Now my aftermarket alarm starts wailing! It starts and shuts right down. Pull the battery terminal. Let it sit. Put it back on and aftermarket alarm will not stop. Currently the car will not start and lights will not stop blinking. Had to pull the battery! What The EFFFFF?! This is my daily and now I'm pretty screwed. Any help is GREATLY appreciated. Thank you.

BTW 94 GC limited 5.2

try unlocking it from the hatch and see if that shuts the factory alarm off. might have broken wires in the door jamb wiring inside the rubber bellows. mine has had issues for a bit and in the last 2 weeks its had the alarm go off 3 times for no apparent reason. found multiple broken wires in the bellows...

Thank you I'll check that out tomorrow. Too late right now. The factory alarm with the horn is finally off. Just the aftermarket. Turns on as soon as battery terminal makes contact. And won't turn off.
