Hello, I need to clarify some things so I get what your machine is doing. It sounds like you have the keypad controls on the right hand side since you mentioned a "stop button". Let's walk through the process for a keypad machine. 1) you power up the ignition by pressing the Run/Enter button. The consoles on left and right side power up and you hear a single/long beep from the alarm. 2) you press the Start button to start the engine. What happens at that point? Is the engine cranking but won't start? Or is there no cranking at all? Do the left and right panels remain lit up when you press the Start button or do they go blank?
