Now the alarm goes off every other time.
Agreed with the previous response, it sounds like the ignition switch may have failed. Depending on where the car spent most of it's life the ignition components could have corrosion as well. Just for some credibility, the wife's bahn cruiser is a 94 100CSq ;-)
