The factory alarm system will NOT kill the ignition or fuel...it WILL keep the starter from engaging. If you can crank it over, it's not the alarm system causing the no-start condition.
The alarm is disabled/turned off by using the key to unlock the door. The Security light will be on until you turn the key on.

Chances are the fuel pump has taken a doo-doo...pretty common problem. Need to test for fuel pressure and go from there. Thumbs Up
