I need to disarn the anti theft on my 99 fire bird
I was cleaning it and my two year old was in it. I had the windows down so i reached in, unlocked it and opened the door from the outside . the alarm sounded and i shut it up. i then started the car and pulled it in to the driveway so that my wife could park in the garage. when i went to pull it into the garage again it would not start. any thoughts on this?

You can roll your driver side window down lock the doors and close them. Then reach in the window from outside and open the door from the inside without unlocking first, if there is anti-theft the alarm will sound. If alarm does not sound you don't, hope this helps!
no it is a anti theft design, try disconnecting the battery with the doors unlocked windows down, insert the key into the ignition doors closed, reconnect the battery, wait five minutes the reach in through the window and tray and start the car, hope this helps
This is the anti theft function working as it should. Your husband needed to override it with the key. The command told the car to lock down. Because the key was not in the car the anti theft set off the alarm and locked down the engine as well. This is exactly what you would want the car to do if you left it locked on the street with your windows down while shopping. Otherwise someone could reach in the window, unlock the door, slide in and start hot wiring the car. These lock functions are programmable and can be changed at the dealership.
The window track may have some grit (sand or dirt) in it causing the window to drop down when it reaches to top of it's travel. This is because the safety feature which keeps you from choking yourself in an electric window works on resistance. Keep the track clean - a shot of WD40 in the track will clean it out. That should fix the window.
The lock problem may be a battery issue in the remote. Otherwise it sounds like it is in the anti-theft unit. Check for a loose ground issue.
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.
