My car has the stock alarm on it. Btw my car has been running fine since I changed the fuse out.

My solution was post #3 in that thread. I did not need to jump my car once I replaced the fuse. The car fired up on its own

My car will also sometimes kick itself out of cruise control. Does that possibly have anything to do with my no start problem?
