Overly annoying security ignition lockout system 900 1994

The security system is too secure. I just bought a '94 960 Sedan. Is it normal for the security system to inhibit starting unless I had locked the car with the keyfob. If I open the door after NOT locking the car, it will not allow me to start the car. I must get out, then lock and unlock. Also, sometimes when I have unlocked it and sit down, I hear a rather loud "Cur-Chunk" sound which I have learned means I must get out again and do the lock/unlock thing again. I noticed that the siren under the hood was disconnected as if its constant sounding had to be stopped by the former owner.

Could there be a sensor error that is confusing the alarm system, such as an indication that someone is sitting in the passenger-side front seat when no one is?
