I am assuming it is an aftermarket alarm system.

You need to check the alarm wiring which will be located under the dash attatched to a black control box. { Could be in the kick panel depends on how it was installed}

There are three most comon causes for this problem

1. The relay for the start module is faulty { Check to see when you hit the start button if the relay clicks}

2. Some systems have a fuse for the start system { Check with a test light to see if this is faulty }

3. Check for melted wiring.

4. Take it to a competent Auto Electrician if no resolve as per above measures.
