Normally the problem like this is caused by faulty starter relay.This can be solved by replacing the starter's relay contact mechanism.After a prolong time the starter relay contact mechanism will get worn out as a result of arcing.Check also to make sure there is no loose cable at the connection.

HOW to reset or acquire anti theft feature it seems to be preventing car from starting

acquire? (you have one now, my guess you mean buy spare?)
id bet $5 is not bad, just the key ,is, so many people drive with only 1 key, and this always happens....
this part is the immoblizer part... (no alarm part)
the key is bad, lost the spare? this be first step.,...
it has to like your key, that is its #1 purpose,
first is to check all fuses. there are many fuses related to
the antitheft option.
clock dome fuse? and C13 fuse (antitheft)
this module kills the starter relay dead. (can be bypasses ask)
finding a 2nd key or fixing antitheft on any Isuzu (they bugged out in usa, )
can be hard finding support for isuzu, in usa, (like Yugo,Daewoo,and suzuki.)

try my hack.
this blu wire if grounded, enables the starter relay.
give it a try.
theory, when the Anti box likes your key.
it grounds pin28 and the starter relay wakes up.
the key start wire powers the starter relay on its other coil pin.

I really think you have some other problem going on that you think is the starter. Maybe a starter relay. Does it just not start when it is warm and after it sits it starts? Does you remote starter switch bypass the key switch and go straight to the starter and then it aways cranks over. That would indicate to me that something is either wrong with the key switch or wiring to the starter relay or solenoid.

    I just recently purchased a 1996 cadillac el dorado etc. it starts then shuts right off. i dont know if it is something wrong with the anti theft system. maybe the keys. i need to know how to check this. i...

    Heres the deal. When you put a remote starter on this year Cadillac (and about 100 other GM models) you have to bypass the security system. On these vehicles, that chip in your key has to communicate with the ignition/lock cylinder and then the TDM (computer) to allow your starter to start and/or allow the injectors to continue working. So what people will do is "bypass" the key and lock cylinder to fake the TDM into believing it has the correct key chip inserted. This allows you to remotely start a vehicle with an antitheft. My guess is that your TDM has now failed. Since the remote starter (which is hooked directly to starter) works and the key doesnt AND we already know that the system has been altered.... I'd put money on the TDM (theft deterrant module). Check out this link. You'll find an answer to your problem for sure.

    1996 vette has new battery running fine and now wont start

    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.
