    press and hold the 2 buttons for the map reading lights, untill the alarm LED on the hazzard switch starts to flash quickly. then get out, and lock the car using the hey. this won't arm the alarm.

    Pressing the 2 lights on the interior light doesn't disable the alarm, just the interior sensors.

    The LED flashing rapidly means there's a fault but it shouldn't flatten the battery, why do you think it will? Maybe even if you left it unlocked the battery would go flat anyway but obviously you don't want to do that
