Default Aftermarket alarm might be causing weird problems?

Hey guys I dont know whats wrong with my 92 mustang. I just got back from my deployment and my car hasn't been able to start or if it does it wont stay running. When I turn the key to let the battery turn on it will only stay on as long as I hold the key in place or for some reason when I dont touch the key and i push the clutch in it comes to life but as soon as I let it go, it will die. During 90+ degree weather I dont have these problems but anything lower than that all these problems occur. I think its something electrical and I do have an aftermarket alarm. Do you guys think that this could be causing this weird problem. Any help will be greatly appreciated. Thank you.

Do you know the condition of your ignition cylinder and the ignition starter module (attached to the steering column)? Chances are strong you have a hot wire for your alarm going to the module.

Actually when I looked at my car today I noticed the ignition lock was very loose in a way that if you just tap it it will shut off or if let go of the ignition too fast it will shut off. So im changing that out along with the ignition switch since im down there already and hopefully that will fix the problem. Also im just going to uninstall the alarm it's not worth it

Those are good bets, especially the loose ignition cylinder. Alarm removal is a personal preference.
