    I know its the anit theft system because i hav had this car for a little more than 5 years and I never even knew it had an anti theft system until yesterday i changed the radiador fan and I tried opening the car and it started to honk on its own and it just didnt want to turn on anymore, so i refered to the owners manual and i read thet when the alarm is active the starter motor shuts off..

    How do you know it's the anit-theft system causing the problem. 9 times out of 10 the anti theft system gets blamed and its not the culprit.

    Factory systems have no such thing as a kill switch, do you have an owners manual, look up the dis-arming procedure for the anti-theft system.

    It is integrated into the cars electrical system and is not removable, The dealer is the only one that can fix this, you provided no info about the problem that would lead me to give u any kind of answer to even begin to figure the issue out, unless you have great skill in electronics and allot of basic test equip and a factory wiring diagram you are wasting your time trying to fix it yourself.

If you use the drivers outside door lock to unlock the vehicle it should disarm the vehicle. emmissionwiz is correct, you can't simply shut the factory alarm off.

the anti theft control wont keep the engine from turning over if this is the case and the engine will not spin over. THEN this is not your problem. Have someone bump your starter with a obgect while you hold your key in the start postion. Before doing so make sure your battery is chared and you have good connections.

The ignition in the vehicle i want to purchase was punched out and i am having problems starting the car. there is an anti theft device installed and i was wondering if that would have anything to do with...


you can remove the ignition switch (the electrical part) from the ignition lock (the key and lock part} and put a screwdriver in the switch part, and turn it like it was the key. as far as the anti theft part goes it may be an aftermarket alarm system installed on the starter circuit.
if that is the case it usually only keeps it from turning over not running.
so you may be able to just bypass a relay,
Look for a wire that someone cut in half up by the switch, and attached there own wire to both ends. just remove there wires and reattach, or temperarily jumper the factory wire back together. see if it turns over.

1999 Nissan Maxima-wont start, no injector pulse


I have a service manual. I suppose you are talking about the anti-theft system. It says that if there is power going to the starter when you try and start that the anti-theft system is ok and that means that it is allow the car to start. If there is not power to the starter then your anti-theft system is stopping the car from starting for some reason.
