I just had the same problem and I was driveing myself nuts trying to determine which control unit or relay was bad. I decided to go back to basics,starting with the battery,cleaning all the cables and makeing sure all the ground studs were tight. On the firewall there are 3 power supply studs,1 on the left,1 in the middle for the starter supply and 1 on the right.put a wrench on each connection and tighten them.Worked for me! Good luck

I think you have put a power spike through the electrics. Try disconnecting the battery give it a minute and reconnect. The alarm runs through the body processor you can't disconnect it.

Starting issue with 1994 jaguar xj6


Had similar problem which ended up being the Park Gear selection position. Do you get a beep noise when out of gear? What about when in park. Although my car was in Park, it needed wiggling out a little while turning the ignition to get it to crank and has been this way ever since.
Also had a Sovereign with an immobiliser that gave me the same no start problems some times, no solution other than an expert auto electrician for that.
