If theres a chip in the key and the key your son is using is not programed or doesnt have the chip then it will not start, you need to try the key you used to drive the car there with, another thing is to try and unlock the passenger side door with key and see if alarm shuts down,

When we use our key fob to lock the doors, i know we must use the key fob to unlock the doors to avoid the alarm from going off. Recently I parked in a parking garage at an airport (left key fob at home)...


You should be able to just unlock the door with the key, and even if the alarm is still going of try to start it the key should override the alarm.

While parked, I heard a chirping sound coming from the car. The remote key system would not work. After manually unlocking the car, with key in ignition, car would not start. There is no power to start...


It sounds like there is a short in your alarm system which is draining the battery while the car is sitting. Try jump starting the car, then pull the fuse which goes to the alarm system. If the vehicle takes a jump and starts, and you can't locate the fuse right away, disconnect the positive battery terminal when you let your car sit. When the car is running the alternator will keep the battery charged.
