Hello and welcome to JustAnswer!
It sounds like you have a couple different problems going on. I'm assuming you have only factory security since you don't mention otherwise.
Factory security watches door ajar switches and if it sees an ajar switch circuit close without it being disarmed then the alarm goes off. If the alarm is going off on it's own it's because of a bad ajar switch, wiring issue or possibly a door that isn't closing correctly; an ajar switch would be most common.
Does the engine start but the transmission doesn't engage?

What Customers are Saying:

I AM VERY GLAD THAT I TOOK A CHANCE ON YOUR PROBLEM SOLVING SKILLS. I WAS SUCCESSFUL IN REPLACING THE FUEL PUMP. MY TRUCK RUNS LIKE A CLOCK. IT RUNS LIKE THE DAY I BOUGHT IT. NO LUNGING FORWARD, THE TURBO REACTS THE SECOND I STOMP ON THE GAS, AND IT HAS A LOT MORE POWER AND EVEN SOUNDS BETTER TO ME. IT SAVED ABOUT $500.00 BY DOING THE WORK MYSELF. I GIVE YOU ALL THE CREDIT FOR YOUR DIAGNOSING THE PROBLEM, JUST FROM THE SYMPTONS I GAVE YOU OVER THE e MAIL. I WILL USE YOUR WEB SITE AGAIN AND REFER MY FRIENDS. THANKS SO MUCH FOR THE HELP.
