Now, to add insult to injury, I was told to test the alarm system. I rolled down the drivers side window, closed all doors, waited for the alarm to set, then reached inside and unlocked the door. This set off the alarm and the remote wouldn't shut it off so I put the key in and turned it to acc. This shut off the alarm but locked out the starter. There is no indication of a prob except it will not start. Nothing from the security light. Ive locked and unlocked both front doors with the key but it wont reset the system. I don't think disconnecting the batt would help since that would make it too easy to steal the car. Anyone have any suggestions?
Not sure if it could be related, but the key works perfectly in the passenger door, but in the drivers door it will not immediately work. It has to be jiggled around quite a bit to work, then it operates fine until you remove it. Could the security sys be trying to lock out the key? The key is the factory master key and has never had issues before.
