Left the key in the ignition accidentally the other night, in the morning the battery was completely dead. Jumped it but the lights and alarm seem to be running so much that the battery is not able to recharge itself. Is this a problem with the electrical system? Or is it the battery?

Re: 99 Chrysler 300M alarm running battery down
Battery was just drawn down so much that when it regained power it set the alarm off which flashes the lights. I would put a charger on the battery for a few hours untill its charged and that should solve the problem

If you haven't already, turn the key to the unlock position twice and see if that disarms the alarm. Replace the remote's battery. I cannot get into any detail because I don't know what year your 350Z is.
you can sometimes 'unremember' your key. sometimes if you have too many keys on your key chain the computer can see your key, you should try the key alone first, if this still doen't work, you can try and re program your key, there should be instructions way better than i can give here in the manual. other wise you might have to take it to a dealer.
if the lights are bright and the blinkers still blink as fast as ever then the problem isnt the battery.. It may be the starter. smack it a few times with a hammer and it may start. If you jump the two wires on the starter the starter should turn over. If it doesnt turn and you did get a spark then the starter is bad. If it does spin then you have a ignition switch issue or starter relay issue.
Assuming that all is well with the vehicle's electrical system (fuses, etc...), the following should work, as Viper/Clifford uses the "fail safe" method of starter disable, and it only works to lock out the starter when the alarm is functioning properly and in the armed state.
That system has a "starter kill" system. When the alarm is actived, the starter kill is engages, and won't let the starter get voltage from the ignition switch. First thing I'd try is connecting the car's battery while the ignition key is turned to the "on/run" position. Cycle the alarm to arm, then disarm, so that the LED is not blinking. It also may require using the manual override button/switch (with the key on) to reset the alarm. Should start after that.
If all else fails, reconnecting the starter wires back together (they are spliced and running through the alarm via a SPDT relay.
you should not have a problem with this as the key is located in the remote and the alerm will sound but as soon as you put the key in the ignition the vehicle cancell the alarm[sword key in the remote
