Call your Volvo dealer with the VIN number. They can give you the code and advise if you can reset it yourself or if you will have to take it in.

With the doors shut, insert the key into the drivers door lock. Lock and unlock the door 5 times. This should reset the system. If that doesn't work you should contact a qualified repair shop.

SOURCE: starter will not engage anti theft light is on

I found this on a website try this

1. Put the newly cut Master key into the keyway and turn it to the ON (RUN) position. A "security" indicator
light on the dashboard will stay on for 10 minutes.
2. Within 1 minute after the indicator light goes off, turn the ignition to "OFF", then return to the ON (RUN)
position. The indicator light again will stay on for 10 minutes (Do not remove the key.)
3. Again, within 1 minute after the indicator light goes off, turn the ignition to "OFF", then return to the ON
(RUN) position. The indicator light again will stay on for 10 minutes. (Do not remove the key.)
4. When the light goes off the third time, the new key is programmed into the computer and will start
the car. Remove the key and then re-insert it into the ignition lock and start the car.
All previously stored codes will be erased. To stop the process at any time, simply remove the key and use
an existing key to start the car.

SOURCE: Anti-theft system

my wife locked her keys in and it is the only set. we have a 1994 ford explorer eddie baure edition. it is equiped with an anti theft system on it . if u or someone else has jimmyed the lock on one of the doors that may be your problem. on the lock is a senser and if that senser is not on there then the alarm will go off every time you open that door. so you have to take the door panal off and put it back on. if you don't know how to put it back on then take the opposite door panal off to see how it goes on. hope that helps you out

Can the kill switch on a 2000 montero sport be bypassed by shorting across both starter solenoid terminals when the key is on? Have tried everything else.


if I ever run across a "how to steal a car" section, I'd be happy to post replies that will injure the person trying to bypass anti-theft systems.
I have posted half a dozen replies to this affect today alone.
If you are in need of bypassing anti-theft systems, the best bet is to take it to a shop....or tow it.

I hope you can see through my sarcasm and realize that posting the correct answer would just teach car thieves new tricks.

Anti theft reset in my mucury sabel 20010


Hi Melissa , why do you want to do a reset ? Vehicle not cranking over - engine not turning over ? When you try to start it is the red light on top of the dash flashing faster then with key off ? When key off a flash will happen every 2 seconds ! When trying to start it flashes very fast. If having a anti-theft problem the starter will not engage !

How to reset anti-theft on a 2000 alero


The security, antitheft or lock picture/icon is a visual indication that something in the car's antitheft system is failing. In most GM cars and trucks there is a hidden system that most people are unaware even exists. From the moment you put your key in the ignition, there begins a constant line of communication between your key's security chip or transponder, to the ignition's lock cylinder, and then to the car's TDM (Theft Deterrent Module). These 3 parts are in CONSTANT communication. If the key is in the ignition, then these parts are sending signals to each other. The security light illuminates when that signal gets broken, even just for a second. When the signal breaks, the car misinterprets this as an attempt at theft and goes into antitheft mode. The car thinks its being stolen or hotwired because it is not getting that signal from YOUR specific key. This is why the security light turns on and shuts down your vehicle. This link explains it pretty well.

Transponder keys


I would check the circuits at the key switch first. The anti-theft should only affect the starter and engine, not things like power windows.

89 firebird anti theft code won't let car start


If code 53 involves the PASS system for your car, the chip in the key has failed, or the sensor in the lock cylinder, or the control module.
The anti-theft system disables the starter and the fuel injectors. You could bypass those circuits to get the car started.

Won't start


A mechanic would check for power at the starter, the neutral safety switch, and the key switch. If the security light in the cluster is on, you could have a problem with the chip in the key or the sensor in the lock cylinder.
