Question about 2000 Saturn SL
SOMEONE TRIED TO STEAL THE VECHILE IN FRONT IF THE HOUSE. THEY MESSED UP THE DOOR LOCKS. i CONTINUE TO DRIVE THE CAR. THEN IT STARTED MESSING UP BY NOT STARTING. I WOULD WAIT A OF MINUTES THAN IT WOULD START. I STARTED SEEING THE SECRUITY LIGHT COME. NOW IT WILL NOT START. HOW DO I RESET THE ANTI THEFT
Hook up your battery charger, turn the key to the on position for like an hour or two to relearn the key. I have seen this take up to three or four hours (hence the need for a battery charger) if still doesn't work check the purple wire from the ignition switch (prob should check this first) it's the key transponder wire, may have gotten damaged by the a-hole who tried to thieve your car! If these things are ok and the key wont program you'll have to get a new key made (locksmith cheaper than dealer usually)

SOURCE: saturn sc l two door coupe, won't start, new battery, all lights, blinkers, radio work. Has a anti theft device, inwhich a computer plug is inserted on the far left side on the inside of the car, jus
IT COULD BE MANY THINGS BUT i FOUND THAT THE COMPUTER WAS BAD IN MINE AND ALSO THE CRANKSHAFT SENSOR WHICH IN LOCATED BEHIND THE FUEL INJECTORS AND ABOVE THE STARTER.
I WOULD CHANGE THE CRANKSHAFT SENSOR FIRST.
IT COST $15.00

Intermittent problem such as what appears that your car has is at best be describe as a test of patience.
Initially would appear to be electrically related. Based on your post/description, pls try and check the ignition wiring (going to the ignition switch behind the tilt lever) along the steering column.
Of course the normal checks should also be considered, battery, battery cables, fuse and fuse box (both in the engine bay and driver side of the center console), relay bank, harness and connectors. Manual cleaning and a spray of electrical contact cleaners should also be performed when in doubt.
Though the technically correct procedure would be to have your car's computer checked/scanned and the readings interpreted.
Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.
Good luck and kind regards.
Thank you for using FixYa.
