Try disconnecting your battery cables then wait about 10 minutes. The computer should reset itself. Reconnect the wires to the battery. It is normal for the theft light to blink about every 5 seconds when the ignition key is out or in the off position. This means the system is armed and working properly. Hope this helps. God bless!

That would be the actulator on the transfer case. More than likely it needs replaced. Check for good connection at the plug on the tranfer case.

Put the key in the ignition, and turn forward all the way just before cranking. Then within 5 seconds, locate, press and hold in the valet/overide button, found under the dash area, (push button, spring loaded)until the installed LED (the blinking light) in your dash area goes on solid, and the siren chirps once (your valet switch might be the toggle (on/off) type. in this case, key on, flip switch in opposite direction, then turn the key off.).
This should reset the alarm, and resetthe grounded relay on the starter wire, allowing you to start the engine.
At this point, the only thing working would be the keyless entry from the alarm, if it came equipped that way.
Just Repeat these steps to place itback to usable armed mode. You may get 2 chirps, confirming it,and the lights may flash twice as well. That should do it.
