Have you tried to disconnect the remote start alarm system to see if that changes anything?

When you connected your alarm system, I figure you connected 1 wire directly to the + terminal of the battery. Any chance you missed hooking up the charging wire when you reconnected?

Also check the power distribution box for a horkin big fuse (100A or bigger). It's probably held in with big screws or small bolts. Might be marker 'Gen' or 'Generator'.
