Mine has done this and i as well do not have a working remote. To disengage it just put the key in the driver door lock and turn for 2-3 seconds and it will disengage. i didn't even know mine had an alarm until coming out of work one night and it went off and i could not get it to turn off unless i went to "unlock" the door and hold it there for a few seconds.

How do i bypass the anti theft system in a 2002 Stratus

Unfortunately if you are referring to the factory anti-theft system - it will have to have computers replaced. Once the Engine Computer sees a Theft Alarm request it will remain there forever and it will shut down the fuel system until seeing an OK To Start from the Theft Alarm.
If it is after market alarm - find it and disconnect wiring - restore connections to original
does that help?
If you are having trouble with the system? Make sure the battery is good and fully charged. There are entry switches on the back side of the lock cylinders on both front doors (probably knocked off when the door is "Slim Jim'd") and the trunk lock.
If your battery is dead and you try to jump it - you will have to turn off the alarm again after hooking up the jumper

Why is the security light coming on causing it to stop running? It will run fine for a while then the light will come on and shuts down.

More than likely if u are using a extra key instead of the factory key it's tripping the anti theft module. If using the factory key then anti theft module is going out.

There is a non-factory anti-theft device keeping my truck from starting. How do i remove it

I would before you do that call a few places that install after market alarms---cutting may not solve the issue and could just make things worse--see if you can locate the unit (brand on the remote??) for a brand or model number.

Cutting without knowing may be foolish.

they didnt come with factory remote start. figure out how to go into valet mode and that should at least temporarily solve your problem.

Hesitation in starting and getting worse

if others dont know about it it could prevent the theft of your 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
