This is based on experience with a 1992 400 E, so it may lead you no where, but it is worth a try. Try having your wife lock then unlock the car from the passenger side, then get in and try to start the car. With my experience the switch that arms/disarms the factory alarm was worn out in the drivers side key hole of the 400 E, but the switch in the door on the passenger side was fine, so unlocking the car from the passenger side would properly disarm the alarm. Of course being that you're 1000 miles from home this would be to simple and easy of a fix to actually work, good luck.
