If this is Factory Alarm:

At the Driver Kick Panel / Door Boot or behind the Glove Box at the Security Module:
Find the GREEN / BLACK (-) wire.
Connect one end of a piece of wire to the GREEN / BLACK (-) wire
Connect the other end of the piece of wire to Ground (chassis)

This will DisArm the Factory Alarm, until the wire is removed

This procedure DisArms the Factory Alarm........
If the problem of "no start" is related to the Factory Alarm, then yes it will
If the problem is not related to the Factory Alarm, then you will need further testing

You asked "how to disable Alarm", which I gave you the procedure to disable.
I can not tell you specifically if this will make the car run, as I do not know if the Alarm is the "only" problem............
But if you have had no other problems & the Alarm is the only problem right now, the procedure will DosArm the Alarm to make the car function just like if you were to DisArm with the Remote
