SOURCE: 1996 Explorer anti-theft system won't disable

Try re-setting the computer...Disconnect the negative terminal of the battery and leave off for 5-10 minutes. This will allow the computer to reset. The charger may have interupted the signal or something.

Either you may be using a key that you had copied from the original or your chip went bad in your original key. Most of cars now a days have the key censor in the key so if it is the incorrect key it will not start your car or if it does not read that chip it will not start

SOURCE: Ford F150 remote key does not work after car battery

Should not have happened,
For the Factory RKE ( Remote Keyless Entry ) have you tried reprogramming the key fobs to your truck. The procedure is in the owners manual ( need all of them at programming time ).
This is stored in NVR, and should not need to be done, but worth a try.

If this is an aftermarket Remote start / alarm, check the owners manual for t on battery replacement. Have seen some off brand with strange battery ( truck's battery that is ) replacement steps.

The anti theft system has disabled the ignition (or maybe car battery problem?)


Turn your headlights on and see if they are nice and brite, and than see if headlights get dim when you try to start the engine.

How do I disarm anti theft device on a 2001 ford taurus


SEE THE STEPS WITH CAREFULLY AND COMMON SENSE:God bless you
Press the unlock button on your vehicle's key fob to deactivate the alarm. If you've misplaced your remote for the car, use the PATS programmed key to unlock the driver's side door. Then, put the key in the ignition and turn the key to the "on" position. The vehicle's battery should be on, but the engine shouldn't be running.

  • 2 Locate the override button on the alarm box, beneath the driver's side of the dashboard. Press the button and hold it in until the alarm beeps one time. The LED light for the alarm should stop blinking, indicating the anti-theft system is disabled.

  • 3 To reset the vehicle's alarm, put the PATS programmed key in the ignition and turn the key to the "on" position. Press the override button. When the alarm resets, it chirps two times and the LED light begins blinking.

    Anti theft light flashing wont start


    You need to provide more information than that. Like what kind of vehicle, forien or domestic, year, etc. I will attempt to give you an answer. Most vehicles will do this that have a factory theft system when certan thing has happened to the vehicle. Like having the battery disconnected, or even hitting a large bump in the road. Try rolling down the driver's door window and locking the door then closing it. Next unlock the door with the key. This will usually reset the anti theft device. Good luck, let me know if this works.
    Thanks

    1994 Maxima anti-theft


    If the light is flashing than the anti-theft is activated. Try locking and unlocking the car with the door lock button on the drivers side. lock and unlock a minimum of three times until the light quits flashing. If the car has loaded up (smells like fuel when cranking) then pull the fuel pump fuse and hold the throttle all the way down when cranking to clear the cylinders, then replace fuse and repeat the procedure with the lock switch if the light is still flashing. It should fire right uo if the light is no longer flashing and the fuse (15 amp) is put back in.
