Hey- I seem to have a similar problem with my 95' Chrysler Cirrus, and I see that a lot of people on this forum are having the similar problems (and are going unanswered), so maybe this will help you. On my car, the anti-theft seems to randomly (and silently!) Activate itself, so I can't start the car. (It will start, and then kill after about a second). The way I get it to work is to manually trip the alarm, and then reset it.
This is how-
1) get in the driver's seat.
2) open the driver's side door
3) use the button that locks all the doors (while the driver's door is still open)
4) close the door with you still inside (these steps simulate you leaving the car and arming the alarm)
5) IMPORTANT- WAIT for at least 30 seconds to a minute, so that the alarm will arm itself. If you open the door too soon, the computer may realize you just locked yourself in and will not arm the alarm
6) after the alarm is armed, open the door (this simulates someone breaking into your car) If everything went correctly, the alarm should sound.
7) Get out of the car, and use your key to MANUALLY lock and unlock the door- this should deactivate the alarm
8) Get back in, and try to start the car again
This procedure is annoying (I have to use it about once a week), but it always works on my car (with the exception of once when I messed with the fuse box. But now it works again thank goodness!), And is MUCH better than waiting for an hour (or a couple of days) to see if my car will start again. Best of luck, hope this helps you in some way!
BTW- I had also spent enough $$$ for the Chrysler dealership and friends to tell me they had no idea what was wrong (kind of annoying), and was about to spend more "fixing" things when this was figured out serendipitously (thank you, thank you, God :)). My current question involves how to conduct this procedure without waking the neighbors at all hours- hopefully some kind soul will help figure that one out too- you can find that post here
