Sounds like your fob battery has given up.
Buy a CR2032 battery and swap the batteries over and you should be fine.
If the fob still doesn't work you may need to reprogramme the central locking to the key.
Easy to do-
Insert the ignition key and turn from position II (Ignition) to position 0 (All off) and back four times within three seconds.
Remove the ignition key.
The locking control system is now in "learn mode" for the next 20 seconds and the red warning system LED should stay on continuously to indicate this.
During the 20 seconds press one of the transmitter buttons.
The remotes signal and code number is learned by the locking module and is indicated by flashing the warning system LED.
Wait until learn mode times out (20 seconds) or switch the ignition back to ON.

If the key starts the car it should turn off the alarm too.
Btw, who told you that the key won't deactivate your alarm?

Do you not have a few seconds delay before the alarm sounds on opening the door?
On my Mk2 focus there's about a 5 to 10 second delay with a beeping alert before the alarm sounds.

Usually when a fob battery packs up the exc loses it's code.
The programming method hasn't failed me yet.
