My car has an automatic transmission.

Hi there. Try pulling the fuse that is marked security and see if the engine will start up. If the engine starts up, then the alarm control system has failed and needs replaced or the battery in the key fob is loosing it’s charge and would need replaced with the key reprogrammed. If you need further assistance with your alarm not working, then seek out a professional, such as one from Your Mechanic, to help you.
