2003 cadillac deville, how do I deactivate anti theft system?

They say there are 75 reports of: "Problems with the anti-theft systems using the raised-chip key can prevent the car from starting. The wires in the steering column to the ignition lock cylinder tend to break. The the key and ignition lock cylinder must be replaced to correct this condition."

Anti theft system

pull the fuse, and reinsert, if that doesn't work, take the neg. battery cable off to reset com. but that will also erase any codes you may need for a machanic in the future. good luck

How do you deactivate the anti theft system in a 2001 saturn sl2

There is no switch or "easy fix". The antitheft is tied in very well. Remember its supposed to detour tampering. But here is a link that will help you alot. Alot of info, pictures, and ways to beat this yourself.

I have a 2005 Saturn Ion with the anti theft light on at all times. the car starts fine but the light won't turn off.

I suggest looking in your owners manual for resetting gauges. I know on a friends honda he had to leave the key in for 10 minutes unattended in the on position and then turn it over and put the car in reverse. Also if you have installed anything aftermarket dealing with electronics this could have upset the security system. The most common cause is a cd player. Hope this helps.

Radio locked, need a code

Radio code is specific for each and every car. It is specific like anti theft code.

You can get it by providing your VIN# and registration details in authorized dealership.
Nobody else can provide you. If anybody can provide you that , then there is no meaning of security for your car.

How much anti-freeze?

You need to fill the expansion tank and the radiator with 50/50 mix, it will level itself out. There is no quantity, just fill it up. About 2 gallons.

My 2004 saturn ion won't start when its cold I even have a block heater to plug it in and it won't start

the anti theft wire under the steering column gets to cold and locks out ignition. i just found the auto theft wire and disconnected it. or you can take a blow dryer or heat gun run under the steering column for 3-5 minutes. if you do disconnect the auto theft wire you must do it while the car is running. use the blow dryer method, start the car then disconnect the auto theft wire.

Recently our 2006 Saturn Ion has started turning on the not starting alarm. We have to wait 10 min. to be able to start it again. We don't know what we are doing differently

sound like problem is in the security anti theft system.your car keys are worn or ignition switch. the bcm and pcm dont recognize keys this will disable car from cranking.this is a dealership fix.

Anti theft engaged for no reason

That one your going to have to goto the dealer for. I think the alarm you have is after market, so you will probably have to if them check it.
