I am sorry that you have not been helped yet. I just came online and saw your question.

Ok, by engine alarm, do you mean the check engine light? If so, has the ECU been scanned for fault codes and if so, what are they?

If you put it into reverse or drive, the engine stalls out? Is that correct?

If so, can you rev the engine a bit and put in gear and keep it from stalling out?

Please remember that I am not there and therefore rely on you for as much information as possible.
