I would like to know where the fuse for anti theft is location
My wife started her car this morning , and for some reason she pulled out the anti theft key ,( she was looking for something under her seat and found an anti theft key, so she put the one she found in while the car was still running, causing the car not to restart.) She called the dealer and they told her it could be the fuse. They told the fuse box was located unded the hood. I found the fuse box , but not sure what fuse is the one . Also what amp is the fuse. Thanks.

Explain anti-theft fuse box ! what do you think this is ? There is an anti-theft system on your vehicle , called PATS - passive anti theft system .Sorry , but there is not anti-theft fuse box .
Anti-Theft -Passive Anti-Theft System (PATS)
The passive anti-theft system (PATS) contains the following components:
encoded ignition key
PATS transceiver module
powertrain control module (PCM)
standard corporate protocol (SCP) communication network
The shifter release solenoid is activated by the brake light switch. Check to see if the brake lights are working when you press the brake pedal. If not, that may be the reason why the shifter won't come out of park. You may need to replace or adjust the brake light switch. (It's located at the top of the brake pedal arm).
It is hard to give a definite answer because I don't know which and how many wires were damaged...Anti theft can be a real HEADACHE.....You can begin by disconnecting battery cables..Use your VIN number for parts,Get new ignition with a programmed factory key from dealer only.....They probably blew certain fuses and or relays when this happened...Or maybe not..Install new ignition connect battery cables..,turn switch on just to check for bad fuses and relays...Disconnect battery again...replace any fuses blown...Connect battery again...( Each time you disconnect battery it resets the computer system and should clear anti theft codes..)..make sure all doors are unlocked by using door remote key fob....Now see if vehicle will crank..If all is done correctly it should start...However I don't know how much damage was done.....It may possibly be too much work to totally disengage anti theft....You could start with removing all fuses and relays related to anti theft but disconnect battery before...I DO NOT RECOMMEND trying to disable the theft system.....You may create more headaches that you want.......Begin by trying what I described just to be safe...!!....
there is no fuse its hard wired in such a way only the dealer has the instrument to fix it otherwise a thief could just pull the fuse and thats no anti theft at all the wires go thru the entire car too so you cant jus snip the lead
To clarify, the anti-theft system will not kill the engine once it is running. The check gauges warning would be expected if the key switch was on and the engine was not running. No oil pressure was the most likely cause for the warning light. The anti-theft would prevent the engine from cranking, but since the engine died I would expect to find something mechanical or electrical with the engine. Especially since you just had it replaced. I would have the car towed to another shop and get it checked out. You may need documentation for a future lawsuit against the previous shop. If you work on it yourself its your word against theirs. I hope you have a written warranty from the shop that installed the engine.
The dealer are the only ones that can disble the anti-theft device with the Tech2,but thepblemou hve ,it souns tome likethe Crank shaft pos sensor, common problem for that year model, agter you let the engine cool down a little bit the engine will start again.
If the anti-theft light is flashing, turn the key to the On position and leave it there until the light stops flashing. Turn the key off, then try to start the car. The Anti-Theft system can get tripped for no reason and cause this exact problem.
