SOURCE: the turn signals in my 1992 Pontiac Firebird do not work

Be careful. There are two flashers. I replaced one once, and it didn't fix it. Found out later I replaced the Hazard flasher. Go to Autozone.com and see the manual for a diagram of where they are. One is hidded to the very right under the panel, the other one in the center.

SOURCE: How can you turn off or reset anti-theft alarm in

You cannot shut it off, If was that easy a thief could steal it.

You need to get the code and fix the problem. Most likely the problem is the key tumbler failed. If this is the case the code would say something like could not reconize key

99 explorer alarm disables. Motor dies


Anti-theft system can keep vehicle from starting , Alarm is for vehicle content theft , open door without key alarm sounds (horns) ! PATS - passive anti theft system PATS enables and disables the engine from starting ,it will not cause the engine to die ! You have some other kind of problem ! If the vehicle engine doesn't turn over an red light on top of dash flashes fast ,then you have anti-theft system problem !
PATS differs from the perimeter anti-theft system in that PATS enables and disables the engine from starting. If equipped, the perimeter anti-theft system protects the perimeter of the vehicle (doors, hood and trunk) and sounds an alarm.

Anti theft system


this is difficult because it's part of anti theft system , anyways this gismo works by a tiny chip imbedded into key , if you don't get a good "chip" car don't start , if your sure you got a good key/chip combo then clean the key hole contacts with spray electronic cleaner , most lock shops can help with the chip/key combo if thats dammaged

My 1999 firebird won't start. I had the battery and altinater checked and both are good. A light that says security comes on when I try to start it.


That is your starter anti Theft system kicking in. It sounds like you have an alarm installed int eh vehicle and if that is part of the dash it is most likely part of the ECM, a bad thing. If this is just a little led light that was installed when an after market alarm was installed that is actually a good thing since you can remove the power wire from the alarm and disable this feature of the alarm. The down side is that will also disable the alarm you have installed.

My check engine light comes on after driving a while it first had code 32 and then the car (92 firebird, 305) does not start now and checked the codes and they are code 32,53,54. My engine does not role...


code 32 - egr system error.
code 53- vehicle anti theft system fault
code 54 - fuel pump voltage low
suggest that your vehicle anti theft system is causing the no turn over condition

Replaced the alternator, now anti theft won't disable


The ignition lock anti-theft switch (19A438) detects if the ignition key cylinder is broken or "slam pulled" during a theft. The ignition lock anti-theft switch is always monitored by the remote anti-theft personality (RAP) module. This allows the alarm system to be triggered in the case that the ignition lock anti-theft switch detects tampering of the ignition key cylinder (even in the event that the alarm is not active at the time).
Refer to the Section 501-14B for more details on the keyless entry remote transmitter (15K601).
The door open warning lamp switch (14018) communicates to the RAP module through the generic electronic module (GEM). This input to the RAP will cause the anti-theft alarm to be sounded if the anti-theft alarm was armed.
The door disarm switches are assembled into both LH and RH lock sets. The door disarm switch must be triggered before the mechanical lock unlocks. This is to prevent the anti-theft alarm from activating when it should have been disarmed.
The RAP module controls the anti-theft system and is the brains of the keyless entry system. The RAP module communicates with the GEM to request that the interior lights be turned ON/OFF with use of the keyless entry remote transmitter, and the GEM communicates to the RAP to inform when the door is opened. Refer to Section 418-00 for inter-module communication.
The RAP module has three wire connectors attached to it:
  • The antenna for the keyless entry remote transmitter.
  • 26 circuit connector (C256).
  • 22 circuit connector (C257).
In addition to the perimeter alarm that uses the door open warning lamp switch, the RAP module also uses the ignition lock anti-theft switch and the autolock/relock feature to prevent theft of the vehicle. For a full description of the autolock/relock system, refer to Section 501-14B .
The THEFT LED is found on the instrument panel between the tachometer scale and the needle pivot point. The LED is illuminated during prearming and flashes when armed or triggered.
Prearming and Arming the System
The system can be armed if:
  • The ignition is OFF.
  • The PANIC alarm is OFF.
  • All doors are closed.
There are two ways to prearm the system:
  • Press the LOCK button on the transmitter.
  • Open a door, press the power door lock button and close the door.
After 30 seconds the system will be armed and the theft indicator in the cluster will flash every two seconds.
Disarming an Untriggered System
An armed system will be disarmed with one of these valid actions:
  1. Pressing the UNLOCK button on the transmitter.
  1. Placing a key in the door and turning to UNLOCK.
  1. Turning the key to RUN or ACC.
The anti-theft alarm can be triggered by the following conditions:
  • The ignition cylinder is damaged with or without the RAP being armed.
  • A door is opened without disarming the armed RAP module.
The remote transmitter can activate a panic alarm which is similar to an anti-theft alarm, but does not deactivate the starter or cause the theft indicator to flash.
Disarming a Triggered System
If the system has been triggered, (the horn honks, the lights flash, and an external starter interrupt relay is engaged), the system can be disarmed by:
  1. Pressing the UNLOCK or PANIC button on the transmitter.
  1. Putting a key in the door and unlocking the door.
  1. Turning the ignition to RUN/ACC (Turning the key to RUN/ACC will not disarm an alarm that has been triggered by the ignition lock anti-theft switch.).

Motor suddenly goes off while driving


more likely it is a fault with the ignition, possible crank sensor or defective ignition module. Have u tested it for trouble codes? if not go to Kragen auto or Autozone they do the test for free.
