Hello my name is***** sounds like the factory alarm is disabling the starting system. You need to try and manually reset it. Put the key into the ignition and without cranking the engine leave the key in the run position for 10 minutes. Then turn the key off without removing it and turn it back to run for 10 more minutes. Then off and back to run for a third ten minute cycle. After the third time turn the key off and then try starting it. If it still will not start then you will need a scan tool to program the key to the vehicle. Please let me know if you need more help.
