Try to start vehicle. Leave key in the on position until the theft light stops blinking (about 10 minutes). Turn the key off - leave off in ignition for about 10 minutes. Try to restart vehicle.

SOURCE: theft system 99 sunfire

The security, antitheft, or passlock light 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 misinterperates 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 may help you find ways to bypass this or fix it yourself.

2002. Why has anti lock cut off ignition and fuel?


Anti THEFT cuts off fuel pump and the ignition module. That is what it is for. The theft light on the dash should be on too. Something tripped the anti-theft system Try resetting the anti-theft module by locking and unlocking the drivers door with the key.

Where is the fuse for my alarm on my 1998 ford expedition


Yes the PATS (Passive Anti Theft Sytem) will disable your fuel pump. If you have a second key try that first, in case it is the chip in the first one.

Try leaving the key in on for 10-15 minutes. If the blinking theft light stops blinking and goes out, it has reset. Turn key to off, and then try to start it.

Replaced the fuel pump. the car starts, but won't stay running


The anti-theft system will keep the car from being driven, so I would start there. You may need to reset the anti-theft or check the ignition key for problems.

My theft light is flashing but my 1997 expedition wont start.The vehicle turns over but just don't start.


ANTI-THEFT SYSTEM Passive anti-theft system
Your ignition key has a unique imbedded transponder which engages engine electronics and allows the vehicle to be started. Without the use of your special ignition key, the vehicle will not start.

During each vehicle start, the coded key is read by the anti-theft system. If the key’s ID code matches the code in the anti-theft system, the vehicle is enabled to start.

Anti-theft system
Briefly illuminates when the ignition is turned to the ON position to verify that the passive anti-theft system is operating properly.

Also, its possisble that tou have actovated the fuel pump switch.

CHeck it.

Fuel pump won't run Theft system shows P1260 code


It sounds like the computer chip in the key is bad. They get damaged really easy and that will cause the fuel pump to stop. If the "Theft" light is flashing continuously when you try to start it, that is the problem. You should be able to get a new key from the dealer or off ebay, and have it programmed. Should be under $100.

Fuel shutting down


Anti theft system. You might have a door lock causing the anti theft system to kick in. (thinking its being stolen.)
