I just had this same problem with a '96 . do you have a vats key in your '94? you need to bypass the VATS system. read some of the blogs on this site and it will tell you how to do it. I fixed mine with a $2 resistor from radio shack.

The chip is in the key. Either the key has lost it's program or the transceiver is not recognising the key. Try another key if you have one.

This means that your key is not being recogonized.Ethier the chip in the key is bad or the patts transciever at the lock cylinder. Do you have a spare key? If not you will have to get 2 new keyss cut and programmed.

SOURCE: Anti-theft system seems to have been activated?

Some months ago I began starting the engine of my 2001 Chrysler 300M but turned it of before it really started "was sloppy with the key". The anti-theft system went on for some unknown reason. I disarmed it by disconnecting one of the battery connections under the hood with a wrench. I connected it again, the anti-theft system was off but the battery was dead. Battery was OK after recharging, I have had no trouble since then.

I just had this to happen to me - here's what you do - when it will not crank - turn your key over to ACC and let it stay on here for 15 minutes, the THEFT SYSTEM light will stop flashing. Turn your key back to OFF then turn it over as normal when starting and it will start right back up! Found it out from an auto store! One lady paid over $700 and then found this out!!!

99 explorer alarm disables. Motor dies


Anti-theft system can keep vehicle from starting , Alarm is for vehicle content theft , open door without key alarm sounds (horns) ! PATS - passive anti theft system PATS enables and disables the engine from starting ,it will not cause the engine to die ! You have some other kind of problem ! If the vehicle engine doesn't turn over an red light on top of dash flashes fast ,then you have anti-theft system problem !
PATS differs from the perimeter anti-theft system in that PATS enables and disables the engine from starting. If equipped, the perimeter anti-theft system protects the perimeter of the vehicle (doors, hood and trunk) and sounds an alarm.

If the anti-theft light is flashing, I would think it is a problem with the key or the anti-theft system. The system would kill the power to the fuel system.

If it is a red flashing light that light belongs to the anti theft system, if the car is running normally there is nothing to worry about

No power to anything - how do I reset anti-theft system? Checked battery at Wal-mart - print out says okay low on charge. Charged battery for several hours on slow charge and then fast charge. Battery...


no... no power to anything means like the headlights are inop and such

in that case its a battery or battery cable issue

assuming you have headlights and power to accessories and the vehicle still will not start AND the theft light is flashing then YES your anti-theft system is trying to keep the car from what it thinks is a theft issue

simply pressing the unlock button on your remotes will resolve this

assuming you do not have the remotes then you will need the anti-theft computers reprogrammed at a dealer or good garage

keep us posted

The anti theft signal is on


The ligth is supposed to flash on and off slowly all the time the car is locked to let you know the system is armed. It's supposed to do that. Small red light on dash.
