Hi. I am a proud owner of a 1996 chevy monte carlo Z34. It has 80,000 miles and runs pretty well. This car is equipped with a Chapman auto alarm system installed by the dealer. Recently, and approximately twice a week, my car wont start when I turn the ignition. I discovered that In order to start the car, I have to disengage the alarm, play with the toggle switch, then engage the alarm. I wait for it to reset, wait about a minute to pass than try the ignition again. It usually starts if not I go through this process again and it starts. I am thinking its the alarm. My mechanic does not beleive it is the starter or ignition system but otherwise is unable to disgnose the issue. What do you suggest? Thank you in advance!
