problem disarming security alarm system without remote

Is there a way to disarm the vehicle alarm system without the remote so that you can start the vehicle? I have searched the internet and the user manual is no help. The scenario is that I'm hundreds of miles from home, I lose the remote, or remote battery dies, and now I cannot start the vehicle, essentially leaving me stranded. This is a factory installed system with remote only - no smart key, so unlocking with the key does not disable the alarm.
