2002. Why is anti-theft light on, preventing it from starting?


The most common cause is the chip in the key does not match the security code, or the security module has failed. The chip in the key must match the factory setting to allow the car to start.
If it worked before you replaced the lock cylinder, you need to have a new key with the same old chip cut to the new lock.

CAR WON'T START, NOTHING AT ALL.HAVE LIGHTS,HORN WORKS CHECKED THE ANTI THEFT SYSTEM TO SEE IF IT NEED TO GET RESET


Most cars have an ignition chip on their ignition key. This is an anti-theft feature. If it gets damaged or your ignition switch doesn't read it properly your car won't start. Everything else will work your engine just wont crank over. You can replace the ignition switch and key or you could bypass this theft feature. Talk to a mechanic to locate your ignition wire under the dash near the steering column. You can get a resistor (at Radio Shack) that matches the resistance of your key. Cut the ignition wire and put the resistor in its place to reconnect the cut wire. If you cut the right wire and the resistor matches your key you can trick your onboard computer to allow the car to start. This is what I did rather than replacing the switch. Cost of this fix less than $3.00 this way.

If the security or anti-theft light is flashing when you attempt to start your car, and the engine does not crank or does not start, you have an anti-theft problem. The system may not be recognizing your key's key-less entry signal, or there may be a fault in the anti-theft module or wiring.
There is a reset procedure to stop this anti-theft light flashing.many a times this helps The reset procedure is as follows:-- Reset the alarm by locking and unlocking the drivers side door.Do this a couple of times and then check it will reset the factory security system . If the reset procedure does not helps then its time to get the anti-theft system checked.There is a short circuit in the anti-theft system wiring.

Anti theft light comes on the car won't start


Your "inmobiliser" system is actived.

The anti-theft feature prevents the car from being started when one of several anti-theft devices is faulty are have otherwise been activated. The problem you descibe might be the ignition swith, which is known to wear out quickly on those models. The system can be completly disabled only when the car is running (meaning the teft deterent system is inactive after the Passlock II system detects the proper key in the ingition). A wire can be cut that would perminantly disable Passlock II, meaning any key that opens the door (or a screwdriver) could start the car. If the ignition swtich goes out or this wire is cut while the engine is off (theft deterent system is active) then the car will have to be towed back to the dealer to have the ignition system replaced and reprogrammed.

I have called Chevy and asked how to fix this problem. If you turn the key to the on position, right before it cranks when the lights and radio turn on. Leave it there for ten minutes until the anti theft light turns off. Then turn the key to the off position and then try starting the car.

Rumour has it that it is a yellow wire to be cut. Do more research, but D O N ' T cut it with the engine off. See first paragraph above.

Hope this help (remember rated and comment this). Good luck.

1996 Explorer anti-theft system won't disable The anti-theft system on my 1996 Ford Explorer will not not turn-off with any normal method. Electronic keypad unlock on driver's door will not disable,...


Try re-setting the computer...Disconnect the negative terminal of the battery and leave off for 5-10 minutes. This will allow the computer to reset. The charger may have interupted the signal or something.

The theft system light comes on in my 99 chevy malibu how do i fix it


On line there are instructions for cutting the anti-theft wire. Very easy to do, but you have to leave car run while you do it. You have to pop radio out and it is a yellow wire behind it. I cut 3 different yellow wires and re-taped them until I found it. Anti-theft light will always stay and never shut off. I did this 4 months ago, and so happy that I did. Very easy fix.

With the car RUNNING cut the yellow wire to the ignition switch from the group of three wires.
Make sure the car is RUNNING when the wire is cut.
Tape the ends and thats it.....the car will start first time from now on....as long as you don't mind not having anti theft.
