On two occasions, I've unlocked with the remote, then unlocked the trunk, and when i got in to start the car, it was dead... i read my manual and it sounded like a "no start condition", i rearmed, unlocked, used the key to unlock the door, tried everything to no avail..finally push started and it ran. when i turned the key all the usual accessory lights go on but the car is totally dead. after the push start it works normal and starts fine??? so if it happens just push start, but don't let anyone see ya!!! anybody got any suggestions/comments??

This is just a thought, but maybe if you turn off the alarm system with the switch under the dash and turn it back on it might reset the alarm.

i think that if your able to push start the car the problem is not the alarm system. i would think the system would kill the ignition or fuel pump. it sounds like the clutch switch is screwed up, take a piece of wire with alligator clips on both ends with you and the next time it won't start try to bypass the switch. it could also be the computer not seeing that the switch is depressed. just mtcaan.

Sorry it took so long to get back to ya. I have a swithc just to the left of the steering column under the dash. My alarm has a little red flashing light. The button is right behind that light. I have a KARR alarm and thats where the switch is. Hope this helps you.
