The ligth is supposed to flash on and off slowly all the time the car is locked to let you know the system is armed. It's supposed to do that. Small red light on dash.

How to reset anti-theft on a 2000 alero


The security, antitheft or lock picture/icon is a visual indication that something in the car's antitheft system is failing. In most GM cars and trucks there is a hidden system that most people are unaware even exists. From the moment you put your key in the ignition, there begins a constant line of communication between your key's security chip or transponder, to the ignition's lock cylinder, and then to the car's TDM (Theft Deterrent Module). These 3 parts are in CONSTANT communication. If the key is in the ignition, then these parts are sending signals to each other. The security light illuminates when that signal gets broken, even just for a second. When the signal breaks, the car misinterprets this as an attempt at theft and goes into antitheft mode. The car thinks its being stolen or hotwired because it is not getting that signal from YOUR specific key. This is why the security light turns on and shuts down your vehicle. This link explains it pretty well.

1260 code wont start


P1260 - This, basically is indicating that a theft has occurred, and the engine has been disabled.If the engine stalled, during travel, and the code was pulled after the stall, this will indicate the following:

1.A loss of power, or ground wire to the PCM
2.A Faulty PCM power relay
3.A Faulty EEC power diode
4.A Faulty VERF signal.

Passive Anti-Theft System (PATS) communicates PCM through instrument cluster to enable or disable vehicle's engine. Within one second after engine start, PCM must receive an enable signal from instrument cluster or engine will be disabled. Along with enable signals, instrument cluster and PCM share messages that confirm security codes shared during initial installation. This shared security data makes instrument cluster and PCM a matched pair, so neither will operate in another vehicle. When system is functioning properly and ignition switch is turned to RUN or START position, THEFT indicator light will turn on for 3 seconds, then turn off. Vehicle will be enabled to start and run. If a problem exists in PATS, THEFT indicator light will stay on or flash continuously.


NOTE_ The best action is to clear the code, by using a diagnostic CPU. Plug the CPU into your in car port, under the dash. Follow the instruction on the CPU display to clear the code. if the engine dose not start after the code is cleared, this will indicate that there are some issues with the PCM, or PATS

Tach needle buried at park


Purchase a new keyless remote FOB. The signal from the remote is weak and loses contact with the anti-theft module in the instrument cluster. We have 2 sets of keys and 1 worked while the other caused the instrument cluster needles to jump and jam the gear selector. The problem is not the car's battery, alternator, wiring or instrument cluster.

Anti-theft system seems to have been activated?


Some months ago I began starting the engine of my 2001 Chrysler 300M but turned it of before it really started "was sloppy with the key". The anti-theft system went on for some unknown reason. I disarmed it by disconnecting one of the battery connections under the hood with a wrench. I connected it again, the anti-theft system was off but the battery was dead. Battery was OK after recharging, I have had no trouble since then.

Anti-theft


no way around this.the vehicle will not start without proper signal from pats key.if your using the same keys you always use there must be a problem with the passive antitheft system.but if you or someone else have attemped to start the vehicle with a key that is not programed to this vehicle the antitheft will kick in and you might have to have get your vehicle scanned and the keys reprogramed.you could try disconnecting the battery for at least 10 min this will clear the memory,then try to start.if still does not start there is a problem with antitheft.
