If this is the Prestige 997C, there is a remote starter disable feature that can be activated through the programming switch. When it is active it will display "inhibit' on the screen. To deactivate this feature, press and hold programming switch, turn key on, off, on, off, on then off. When the hood pin switch is not making contact with the hood when closed, the screen will display inhibit. When the brake shutdown wire is active the screen will display inhibit.

You did not mention the year/make/model of your vehicle but, the issue appears to be the factory alarm. The installer failed to make the connection. If you intend to make the connection yourself I would need information pertaining to the vehicle. The (-) pulse before start wire for Prestige remote starters is black with a blue stripe. It is in a 4 pin connector at the module. This wire can be used to disarm the factory alarm before the remote start sequence.

My alarm light blinks twice stop then twice and stop its continuous and my alarm shows a picture of the hood and trunk door up. when I press the green button to remote start my vehicle my alarm sounds. I...

The LED blinking twice and, the trunk and hood being displayed on the remote indicates trunk/hood trigger. Now, when you attempt to remote start the vehicle and nothing happens, it's definitely the hood pin switch. By the way, the remote should be displaying "inhibit" as well at this point. Check for the hood pin switch under the hood; it's probably bent downward, not allowing the pin to make contact with the hood when it's closed. If it's a bracket, bend it upwards. If it's a pin, unscrew it upwards a couple of turns so it makes contact with the hood when it's closed.
