My guess is the alarm, where the standards for install of most aftermarket alarm/security systems are atrocious.
Do you get a click when you turn the key to start, or nothing?
If you can, I strongly suggest completely removing the alarm and wiring your regular ignition circuit back to factory standard.
But, if you are getting click/noise, you might have a starter or solenoid going bad.
Not uncommon, the starters are readily available and not that hard to change out.
