    it should. look in your fuse panel for any added male spades with wire running from fuse panel face. also look and see if it might be connecter directly to the battery. follow any after market wires from battery or fuse panel to the main alarm controle box. you can also follow the wires you disconnected from the siren to their source. you should find what you need there. gl let me know

You need to reset the alarm by inserting the reset key(small plastic devise with visible contactors that should be with the keys) for a few seconds in the it's hole in the right-hand rear speaker. Open the boot look at the underside of the rear right-hand speaker to locate the hole.

Anti theft will engage

Try disconnecting the positive from the alarm. Sometimes its connected straight to the battery. If its not connected to the battery look underneath the dash drivers side. Find the alarm brain, the power cable (RED) should have a fuse on it. Take the fuse off, disconnect the negative from the battery wait five minutes. Then connect everything, if you took off the right fuse the alarm should restart. If its still doing it the alarm is not the problem. If you have a trunk switch to the alarm, you can simply disconnect it. These switches are optional and often get corroded or defective almost always causing the problem described. After disconnecting the negative from the battery you might notice your car's driveability different. This is because the car's computer also gets restarted. Don't mess with anything in the car the computer will set on its own. Let me know if you still have a problem after this.

Wont start with ignition

could be your starter relay, neutral safety switch, or if you have an alarm system that could also keep it from starting with the ignition switch. those would be the 1st things id check

96 Yukon (vortec) not getting fuel.....wont start.

I trust this is a throttle body fuel injection system?
If it is: purchase a "noid" for your vehicle at an autoparts store this little tester will let you know if your injectors are working. if they are not; they will not be spraying gas into your "bowl" the injectors are little electrical powered solenoids; check fuses, fuseable links and, the efi module.
