    no.. The locks and windows are manual not powered and we only have one key with it... My Father gave it to my son for his 15th birthday and now it just sits since we have no idea how to fix it.. It is brand new and just needed a battery and we drove it here from florida to n.c. with no problems but it all changed when we got him a new battery...

Anti theft light is blinking and car won't start or go into gear. How do I get the anti theft system to let me start the car? Where is the system located?


Possible causes: The anti-theft lock cylinder isn't recognizing the chip in the key. The key is bad or the anti-theft module is bad. If you have multiple keys then you need to try them. If only one works then the other is bad and you need to get another one.

The other possibility is the lock cylinder is bad and some cars like the 1998 Honda accord had a recall on it. Check into this by calling the dealership.

One other possibility: When you insert the key and turn the ignition, the anti-theft reads the key. Normally, you will see a green key light (depending on the car) blinking and go out shortly after the car starts. This means it is working obviously.

If you see the green key light blink but your not getting any start, it may be that the Main Relay for the car is bad. This happened on my 1998 Honda Accord. It was an $80 relay that is under the steering column. You may have to get a repair manual in order to locate it. You will have to get a replacement from the dealership.

I would try the different keys first, then the relay, these are cheaper to try. The lock cylinder being replaced is the last thing as this is very expensive and the dealership will gladly do it even if its not broken because they often guess and do whatever the customer asks rather than actually do a good job. At least in my experience with San Antonio dealerships. Hope this helps. Cheers.

Changed the battery now the radio/cd and clock do not work. Fuses ok.


Its the Anti-Theft System. See what the owners manual says about it, if you have it. Normally, with late model cars a low power 12volt source is first plugged into the cigarette lighter socket to keep the Anti-Theft System from arming, when disconnecting the battery You will have to have it reset at a good garage or dealership.
