Turn the key on and try to start the engine it should start than stall, leave the ignition on for approx 10 min the security light will flash when it stops flashing turn the car off and then repeat this procedure after the third try the theft system will attempt to relearn the security data, if it is valid it will then start if not you will nee someone with a tech 2 scanner (gm shop) to help you out

1998 cavalier wont start no spark

If you have no spark try the ignition module, it controls the spark and if you don't have any and the coil is new its the only other option short of wiring or ecu!!

My 1996 cavalier wont turn on an the anti thef light is on i changed the starter , alternater, an still wont turn on

I hate to tell you this, but all of the components you have just change will not do a thing for the anti-theft light. The vehicles security system has been activated, and that is what is not allowing the vehicle to start. The only way to diagnose what is causing this is to have a scan device capable of Body Control Module communication.

My 99 ford ranger died while driving and now will not start. Thef light in dash keeps flashing


this may be because the injection sensor sensing the amount of fuel going in may be failed. so it might stopped the fuel going inside the cylinder. so when you start the engine it turns over but fuel is not been injected inside the cyclinder so no firing is taking place. the light is the warning light which keeps on flickering.

2. may be there is a bloack in the fule injectors which blocks the fuel to enter the cylinder.

so try servising the injection sensing unit and injectors too.

You don't. You will have to go to a shop and have them put a scanner on your vehicle and then repair the problem with the PATS System
