If others dont know about it it could prevent the theft of your vehicle...it might not be a bad idea to leave it alone casue theres no telling what it would tkae to disable it and getting into your wiring could create more issues than just disabling the anti theft system

Trunk&gas tank buttons in driver door would not let you pull up or push down.its stuck.what seems to be prob.on 2002 honda accord.


Can you open the trunk with the key? If so, look around the latch mechanism for a tiny lever. This lever can be pulled up or down and is meant to be an additional anti-theft device on many models. On one position it enables the remote lever to open the trunk and in the other position it disables the remote lever to open the trunk, forcing the person to use the key at the trunk to open it.

Ok. my car 97 pontiac sunfire needed a new alternator output cable. guy put a new one on but apparently messed with something else and now its not starting. said the theft light came on and that it isnt...


Tell the guy to call the dealer and ask them how to override the anti theft system or reset it. when you disconnect the battery and lose power it kicks on the anti theft device and it won't get fire.

95' cavalier hesitates to start and switch to 2nd gear


My friend it sounds very familiar to a TPS (throtle position sensor). Locate it by the throttle lever on the intake box.Place an ohmmeter on little brute while unplugged set the meter to 100 ohms and manually activate the throttle lever.Should read at 0 closed and 8 to 14 open . If not install a T P S unit.Cheap and readily available at most auto parts stores

I cant get my truck to start because of the anti-theft lock.


Do you have any engine codes?
Does your fuel pump turn on and do you get sufficient fuel pressure?
Do you get spark? Power to plugs, ignition module, coil packs?

Check all fuses and relays?

I can't get my truck to start because of the anti-theft lock.


One way I have found to fix that is to by-pass it. You might check your fuses and the little anti theft key under the steering wheel first though. Hope that helps.
