Dude, sounds like overkill. There is a button under the dash that you depress and you'll be able to start car. If its OEM equip there's a way to disable alarm and still use remote key. to find button (run left hand down the outer edge of dash where padded dash meets hard plastic - then slide to the right and feel or look around . It may be black and hard to find - its small)

98 chevy cavalier trunk won't stay shut

Could be. Or the electric part of the latch could be faulty.
Assuming you have an electric release you should be able to disconnect it and just use a key.

My 1998 Chevy Cavalier turnsover but it won't start. Can someone tell me what is going on??

Three checks you can do yourself if you have a few tools. Is it getting fire, getting fuel, and cranking. Every engine needs both to run.

When I start my 1998 Chevrolet Cavalier the dome light goes on & will not shut off while the car is on, when you stop & shut the motor off it goes off after about 5 minutes. Any ideas on how to...

Sounds like your door switch is acting up, in most cases it is the drivers door that is doing it, do you have a light on the dash that says the door is open, some cars have it and some don't. i have seen the switches wear out after alot of use.

you have to use the key to unlock and lock a door.that is if its a factory alarm. after market add on may not work that way and may need the remote. if drivers door dont disarm it try the key on pass. side. doors have to be closed when lock/unlock with the key

Theft system keeps my car from starting

This is an easy 1, you need to locate the fuse for the alarm and just simply take it out. if this does not work try unhooking the alarm, the fuse should be located under the dash on the drivers side.
