Thank you for using just answer.

Clarify this please-

you stated alarm and starting at the same time?
Are you saying that the alarm is going off and while it is going off that the starter is engaging itself?

yes that is correct

Does this truck have an aftermarket alarm with a remote start on it then?
Customer: replied 7 years ago.
I think it is a aftermarket alarm but I don't think it has a remote start. When I purchased the truck it came with two keys which have three buttons. one to lock, one to unlock and the third is green which I don't know what it is used for.

Can I get a picture of this remote to identify it?

Yeah that is definately an aftermarket system.

Remote keyless entry is only wired to lock control wires, if the starter runs when the alarm goes off then this system has a remote start also.

You are going to be dealing with a control module issue on this truck, the unit will need to be replaced. You whould seek an aftermarket audio specialty shop in your area for this one.
