WILL TURN OVER BUT WON'T START

2001 Chrysler Sebring

Engine Mechanical problem
2001 Chrysler Sebring 6 cyl Two Wheel Drive Automatic 53000 miles

this started intermittently and I would turn the alarm on and off and then it would start. It may or may not have had anything to do with it?

It turns over fine, feels like its out of gas but its not and just won't start.

I do believe that the alarm has something to do with it. Often times, if the alarm system is triggered, it sends a " kill" signal to the fuel pump relay, rendering it inoperable. You can try starting, but it won't catch because there is no fuel going into the engine.

You may have a sensor that is very sensitive, or defective, creating the alarm system to think that it has been compromised.
