as he said it looks like the starter kill that was installed has now turned on, or the wiring to it has become disconnected. Often on a starter kill there is an offboard relay that the starter kill controls. Look up around the ignition wiring or again in the kick panel for the relay and check the wiring going to it.

Or call the dealership as it could be a good pia to hunt down what has happened.

I have a button on my 95 in a similar location. It is for the starter kill relay for the factory alarm system. If it won't crank, turn the key on, hit the button and try again. Could well be a dealer installed alarm.

I tried that. pressed with the key on, key off, key out...
As far as the dealer installed alarm:
The dealer told me today that it could be a "lot alarm" installed. An alarm that the dealer installs for their security and if the buyer doesn't want it they pull the module. I was never told anything about it. Plus, I have never noticed it until now. I guess it could be possible that I have overlooked it all these years. My wife has been the primary driver until last month and she took it to detail shops for cleaning.
Any thoughts on this "lot alarm" idea?

factory alarms do not use add-on modules like that that screw into the panel, this was definitly an add-on aftermarket alarm.

Having installed audio/security for 10+ yrs I can tell you that lot alarms are the worst thing you can imagine. They contract out to the lowest bidder normally, that uses the cheapest products and then wants to spend as little time as possible in each car. I know people that could literally be in/out in 10 mins but they would not do it to their own car and you would not want it done to yours. Good news is that they are easy to pull out. Follow each wire from that alarm hrns till it ends and cut it and insulate all the bare copper. It sounds like alot but would probably take a diy'er 45 mins.
