You can't remove the device as you call it, you can bypass the key sensor only. As far as the failed smog test goes that can one of about a dozer problems, some as simple as an oil and filter change. To bypass the VATS passkey security system follow this link.

SOURCE: anti- theft relay

The fuse or switch would be up under the dash panel on drivers side. Or follow your horn wiring and it will lead you to security system main control box.

SOURCE: Emissions

Sounds like it's not getting enough oxygen to burn all the hydrocarbons and carbon. Change out the oxygen sensor. Hope that helps. Is the air filter dirty? It might even improve things enough if you just change that.

Car will not start - no clicking sound when providing ignition, wipers and lights worked fine. Mechanic started it with external starter - says its a starter motor problem - need another opinion.


Don't you trust your mechanic ? If he's any good he would have done a voltage drop test on the starting system . This test would eliminate connections an battery cables as the problem . Leading to the conclusion the starter is bad . Any lights like anti theft lit ? SECURITY , Immobilizer On the instrument cluster . Starter Voltage Drop

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.

I believe your battery is not the problem. But have it checked. The slow crank-over is due to the anti-theft feature in your car. When the car senses a theft attempt, it reduces cranking voltage to your starter to around 7 Volts.

Some wiring is crossed that is telling the Brain that there is a theft attempt. There are only a few things which happen when you fill gas. The Emissions system is open due to the gas cap being off and the fuel sending unit is reporting to the fuel gauge.
Possibly the fuel pressure regulator is feeling resistance due to the change in fuel volume.

Again, get a free battery test at Autozone, Advance, or Oreilys. I have not seen a problem like this in several years of working for Fixya. The battery is probably not low, but restricted by the antitheft. Yours is probably a unique condition.

Anti-theft system has nothing to do with it . Battery cables , maybe , Park neutral safety switch possibly ! With anti-theft system problem you wouldn't a click or anything , that is if the anti-theft disables fuel or the starter . Plus the SECURITY light would be on if it were a anti-theft system problem . Your best bet , take it to a qualified repair shop that knows how to do starter circuit testing >
Starter Voltage Drop
How to voltage drop test starter motor circuit

And what's this identity anti theft system ? No such thing ! The vehicle has a content theft an vehicle theft deterrent system !
This system disables fuel not cranking of the engine. The VCM/PCM will not disable the fuel due to any BCM message for the remainder of the ignition cycle.
If the VCM/PCM does not receive the same password from the BCM as the last learned one, the vehicle will start and then stalls due to the Fuel Lockout.

Do you have a combination code for the driver door keypad? If so, try inputting that as you would to unlock the car.

My 2002 Ford Explorer won't start after a diagnostic test was performed. Mechanic is stating it's due to the anti-theft device system, but they have no idea how to fix it.


How is that possible,they should have a data
base, such as AllData or Mitchell, etc or
they can not work on any product & may as
well close their doors and go out of business

Your owners manual will explain the system as
far as using it

Any repair shop, should have 15 years experience
with an Explorer,there are a million out there

You need to move on to another shop,don't pay that
one anything

1997 cadillac deville delagance - anti theft device


I've got a 97 deville d'elegance that has issues similar to these. Last year the red anti-theft light came on and the car wouldn't start-took it to the dealership and they replaced the PCM? (the main brain for the system) for $900...the guy told us the wiring was so corroded he didn't want to mess with it much. Today the message started flashing on the dash that says "anti-theft problem/ car may not restart" but it still turned over in the driveway a couple times so I am hoping I can reset it. The wiring system is jacked and will probably need to replace the wiring harness completely. Doubt its worth it. Not a secure feeling with 2 babies in the back seat in the middle of winter....

Starter disabled due to theft system


the wire that goes to the ignition to the anti theft device is probably broken if you call a good locksmith they can go in through the steering column and fix it same thing happened to my 95 eldorado apparently cadillac designed the anti theft system to coincide with the ignition and is connected to the ignition with two wires that turn as the key is turned the wires twist and eventually they wear out
