You can't disconnect or bypass the alarm system. Think about it. It is there to stop exactly what you are trying to do.

All your symptoms are that of an anti-theft system that needs resetting.

Disconnect the battery overnight. Hold the two battery terminals together for 5 minutes. PUT THE KEY IN the IGNITION, but not turned on (this is the most important part). Connect the positive lead. Connect the Negative lead in one swift movement. Leave the car for 15 minutes to fully reset. The alarm should not be sounding at this time. If it is, you need an auto-electrician.

The bendix [cylinder ] you talk about should spin out to conntact the starter ring on the flywheel .If it is not then the starter moter wants checking out at the garage The bendix should be on the shaft closer to the starter motor,not on the end that is the end of the stroke . But some starters pull in to the starter ring and have to be installed by lifting over the starter ring on installing it .Pull in type starter motor will have the gears on the inside of bendix .[cylinder] And throw out type will have the gear on the end of the bendix [cylinder] hope i have not confused you .

Most likely, but check your oil level. Too much and the vacuum applied to the valve will suck up more oil vapors. I had a car come in that had caught fire and I had to determine the cause. It was because the engine had 8 quarts of oil in it. The extra oil went overboard onto the hot exhaust manifold...poof fire.

The brake light switch is adjustable. Before adjusting it, make sure the brake pedal is in it's full up position. Sometimes a weak return spring will be the cause.

The ECT sensor needs a power and ground to operate. It uses resistance to create a signal that is sent back to the computer. You can use a volt meter and check the plug for a 5 volt reference on one wire and the other wire will be a ground. If no 5 volt reference, look for a burned out fuse or broken/damaged wiring. A scan tool that shows data would be very helpful in knowing what the sensor is reading. The sensor may be reading properly and the problem may be due to a low coolant level or defective thermostat
