Is their only 1 alarm installed in the car? You don't have an aftermarket alarm installed in your car on top of the factory alarm do you?


I had a similar problem and it turned out to be the starter solenoid. Also, could be the ignition module or some high tech relay as James suggested.

sounds to me like the temp sensor.
