My name is ***** ***** I am a professional here at Just Answer. I noticed that your question was not getting a response and thought I would see if you still need help with this.I apologize for the delay and I hope I can still assist you with this here.
With the issue with the key in alarm going off with no key in it and the intermittent crank no start issue this sounds more like a possible fault with the electronic ignition switch itself.I would have this tested further to see if this is the cause here and replaced if found to be at fault.
Thanks Pete
