What light came on in the dash? All, some? When you turn the key there is no click or nothing nothing?
That wire depends on the alarm system. You'd have to check with the manufacturer.
It could be weak batteries still. You need at least 850CCA batteries that BOTH load test good individually. On the pass fender inner wall there is a starter solenoid. You can try bridging the terminals and if it starts, then that's something. Could be a neutral safety switch, key tumbler, wires in the column, bad starter solenoid, many, many things.

Agree with above. Way too many things can be wrong.

Also, what kind of weather/temps are you experiencing this time of yr?

Well that's a good start.
I'd go checking every single fuse just to be sure cause something is not allowing the starter solenoid to be engaged, which is usually electrical. So fuses first. Then bridge the two posts to see if it will turn over. You can leave the key on so that if it does turn over, then it can start and stay running.

I cant help you on the alarm question.

On the starter solenoid, there should be the 2 big wires and a smaller wire.
Check the smaller wire for 12 volts when the key is turned to start.

Or replace the alarm starter kill relay if the alarm still works. 5.99 at autozone or any parts store.
