I would change the battery and make sure it has a good charge. Or take that battery to auto parts store and have them test the battery to make sure it is good. If it is, have them do a fast charge. If that don't work I say you might have a grounding issue

I went to open my car door with my key and the alarm starting going off, I have never used the remote on my keys. Now the alarm wont go off and I can not start my car. What do I do?

Close the door and use your remote to lock, then unlock the doors this will reset your security system. If this does not work, the most likely cause of your problem is a very low battery or poor battery cable connections.

The reset may work. Try opening your trunk, leave it open, put one key in your driver's door and the other in the ignition (on position) then your buttons on your remote should be able to turn off the car alarm again.

This sounds like a alarm problem, try closing and locking your door, then using your remote to unlock as if you have just got to your car in the morning... Im thinking along the lines that you car alarm is activating the ignition auto shut off....

Okay you may want to check to see if the sensor on door lock cylinder hasn't fallen off from the lock itself. Pull of the door panels and check the wires at the door lock cylinder. Hope this helps.
