Mine is exactly the same, forever to warm, and stays warm for a long time, but doesn't move past the 12 point.

The alarm light was on solid, and it kept randomly unlocking and locking on the rest of my way in. After about 5 minutes it stopped, then the alarm light just went out, and when I got to the garage at work, it would restart, however the fob no longer locks the car.

Its some sh!tty Clifford alarm that I've never liked, so I don't particularly care if its dead, but I gots big issues if its going to keep preventing the car from starting.
That sucks, nothing more embarrassing than getting shut down by your own alarm!
