Put the key in the ignition and turn half way (the car will not start even if you turn all the awy because the ignition cut off is still active), reach under the dashboard for the cut off switch and press it once. Turn the ignition back to off and then again to on all the way. The car should start (because the cut off switch was deactivated ) and the alarm will go off. This has worked me for me a few times. This has been happening for the past 5 or more years. This is not new. Just getting some publicity finally.
