Entirely dependant on the vehicle. If it is a ford they will not start if the battery in your electric fob dies. GM's VATS system has a problem with the ign wires that control the starting system. These vehicles will have a small tab on both sides of the key with metal strips in the middle. Incorrect resistance or worn contacts can be the problem there. Not sure of your vehicle make, so much is dependant on that.

SOURCE: 2005 ford taurus. Remote entry wont work theft light keeps blinking when key is engaged

HI, I'm reading your problem,
Let me explain something about your car.

2005 Ford Taurus, The key on that car has Chip inside of the key and receiver on the ignition switch,
Check if the key you are trying to use is Black and has a plastic head.
If not you need a key with that characteristics.
But if you have the right key, Remenber if you had drop on the floor, or hit with something,
Because some times they come damaged, with insignificat thins.
Remenber if you left the key close to a magnets like speakers.

If nothing aply at your case, you need to call a place Aloha Smith, they have the computer to program or reprogarm your key. IF not you can't start your car.

OK.. I hope this information work for you.

Thank's for submit yous question on fixya.com

If you have key numbers on the door, you should enter the code, then immediately start the truck. If this does not work contact the dealer for a sequence to reset the alarm.

I changed the starter with new as old one was not turning. After replacing new starter my truck does not crank and start, Please help me to start my Truck. Anti theft light is blinking all the time.


You solved your own problem.
The anti-theft system is probably keeping it from starting.
Get the system checked out and you may find the problem is the chip in the key.

When anti theft light is blinking the car wont start. Can you bypass the anti theft device


On a 2003 Chevy Maibu the theft system light comes on and blinks when the system is triggered. The car will not start and the fuel pump cuts out. You must turn key to on and have all doors closed. Keep the key to on for 10 mins til theft light turns solid and then disappears. Then turn key to start and it should fire up.

2003 malibu won't start. Will turn over fine and it amost starts if you leave it for awhile. Hoping its just fuel filter. If so how do I replace it ?? Thanks.


I just had this on my car too. Turn the key to "on" without starting the engine. Look at the display and see if the Anit-Theft light is blinking. If it is, you need to keep your key in the on position for about 15 minutes until the light stops blinking. Start the car when the light starts blinking.

No power to anything - how do I reset anti-theft system? Checked battery at Wal-mart - print out says okay low on charge. Charged battery for several hours on slow charge and then fast charge. Battery...


no... no power to anything means like the headlights are inop and such

in that case its a battery or battery cable issue

assuming you have headlights and power to accessories and the vehicle still will not start AND the theft light is flashing then YES your anti-theft system is trying to keep the car from what it thinks is a theft issue

simply pressing the unlock button on your remotes will resolve this

assuming you do not have the remotes then you will need the anti-theft computers reprogrammed at a dealer or good garage

keep us posted

Try pulling the fuse for the anti theft system and starting. If the car starts normally, then the problem is with the theft system. The theft system will reset itself after a period of time.
