2003 LC: key starts alarm, not engine

1082 Views 4 Replies 3 Participants Last post by  Bitter
I have a 2003 Land Cruiser. It was working normally until last week. Now when I turn the key to start, the car alarm (factory) comes on, and the engine does not crank. I replaced the battery this morning, and that did not help. My neighbors are more than annoyed with me :)

Any ideas on how to diagnose this?

problem solved

I bought the car used, and the dealer neglected to tell me that there was an after market alarm spliced into the wiring.
I had the after market alarm removed, and presto, everything works.
Thanks to those who responded!
