Is it a factory alarm or aftermarket. I don't think the 1996 had a "factory alarm" and most aftermarket alarms would give the problem you describe if the battery was removed. What is the writing on your remote control to open and close the doors. If it says Viper of BEL or such look on Google for that alarm manufacturer and look on there website for instructions to rearm the alarm. Not sure if the information goes back that far but Hyundai as a car manufacturer put a lot of free technical information and workshop manuals on line for Hyundai owners. Check out lots of great information.
