In dealing with alarms/starter kill devices, I recommend you taking it to a car audio shop and having them remove it. It sounds like it is defective to me.

If you arent familiar with the way a starter kill functions, it may be worth a tow truck. If you are I can find out the starter wire color and maybe walk you through bypassing the starter kill relay.
