I would suspect a loose connection at the battery or power distribution panel (fuse/relay box). Could be a bad ground connection. Could be a bad ignition switch.

Due to the occasional/intermittent nature of this problem, A service shop might take a while (days or weeks) to reproduce the fault condition, let alone repair the vehicle. Find a mechanic that is electrically inclined for best chance of success.

When you turn key on does it click repeatedly? When an alternator is going bad the electrical goes all kinds of crazy sometimes, you may want to start there if you havent chkd that yet.

THE CAR DOOR WOULD NOT UNLOCK I REACH THROUGH THE WINDOW AND UNLOCK THE DOOR. NOW THE CAR WILL NOT START TRIED TO RESET THE CAR BUY TAKING OFF THE CABLE TO THE BATTERY AND NOW THE ALARM GOES OFF AND CAR...


I think this is that silly security system a lot of cars have now. You have to open the driver's door with the key, or else it goes bananas.
I would lock all the doors, remove the battery terminal, wait at least 5 minutes, and then try unlocking the driver's door again.
(of course if there is something wrong with the driver's door lock, then fix that first.)
If the alarm system is still not working right, I would just hot wire a momentary push button to the starter solenoid and leave it at that.

I hate it when they put complex electrical devices like a security system in a car that sits outside in the cold, heat, rain, etc.
They make cars worse and worse all the time.

Check your harness on the driverside, between the door and the body frame. The harness sometimes get spliced by the hole in the frame. This would cause the electronics wires to touch (sometimes work/ sometimes don't). GL.
