it sounds like you have blown fuse to the Alternator.. I don't know what car you are talking about but they charging systems vary.. But if alternator isn't getting all the power it needs it won't charge. this should be checked.
had same problem outside restaurant, pulled cable off battery but every time i reconnected the alarm would go off, wound up calling AAA he was stumped and called a friend of his who said use key to open trunck.we laughed at him as we tried it but............................it worked, the alarm turned off and no problems since (2 mos)
The immobilizer feature was tripped when the alarm went off. It sounds like the battery was indeed dead. My Nissan 300ZX used to trip the alarm when I jump-started it, although my Audi A4 does not. When the alarm is going off, you have to disarm it with the key or key fob first, or you won't be able to start it. Try putting the key in the door, lock it, unlock it, lock it again, and unlock it again, just to make sure you get a couple of arm/disarm cycles, then try starting it.
I have a 95 camry 2.2 and it did the same thing. i helped jump a buddy's car then the horn started sounding. so i called the parts service for toyota they told me theres a switch under your dash, on the floor board, right above where the left is placed. there was a switch, he told me to flip it then my car started working no problem. that was about 1 yr 1/2 ago.
