the alarm has no control over the dead car issue. it's an unrelated problem that's causing it not to start.

the alarm ONLY blows the alarm horn when activated and working properly. me, i'd unplug the sob and get on with life. the control unit is under the carpet, below the dash, next to the injection ecu. good luck, chuck.

Yes, unplug the alarm. Its on the pass side under the false floor and iis a black box with Becker writen on it. Unplug both connectors. Then figure out what your starting issue is.
