I unplugged my after-market alarm, but the car is not

Customer Question
Hi, I unplugged my...

Hi, I unplugged my after-market alarm, but the car is not starting. I guess it has to do with the starter kill preventing, but I'm not finding it. My car: Sonata 2004

Mechanic's Assistant: Have you checked the battery, particularly the terminal connections? Are they corroded?

The battery is fine, the car was starting before unplugging the alarm system

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your Sonata yourself? What have you tried so far?

Yes, myself, first time. I unplugged all the "brain" from the after-market alarm system. and reprogrammed my new keyless fob (oem)

Mechanic's Assistant: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?

I guess no, thanks
