Hello, it most likely has an aftermarket alarm installed, most used car dealers either give you a remote or remove the system completely. try doing this:
with the key out remove the negativw battery cable
Put the key in and turn to ON
leave the door open
re connect the battery
try to start

The first thing you should do is remove the cables from the battery and clean both the clamps and the battery posts until the surfaces look bright.
I apply a protective coating before I replace the cables but it's not necessary to find out if you have found the problem. After you tighten the battery clamps, try to twist the clamp with your hand. If it moves it is not tight enough.
I've often see cars with battery post to small for the clamps.
If it's loose and you can't tighten it any more, you can purchase lead cups that fit over the post.
Remove the clamp and back the nut up as far as it will go, then use a screw driver to spread the clamp. Put the lead cup over the post and press the clamp down until the post is flush with the top of the clamp and tighten it.

SOURCE: anti theft engaged for no reason

That one your going to have to goto the dealer for. I think the alarm you have is after market, so you will probably have to if them check it.

Your alternator should power everything when engine is running. Battery is only for start up. Test voltage with a multimeter when engine is running , should be 14V or more . Any less indicates low alternator output.

I have a 94 camero just replaced ignition starter switch but when I turn the key to start position I get nothing no click nothin wat else could it possibly be?


Is that why you changed the ignition switch in the first place ? No crank - no start ? Did you check the park neutral switch ? Is there a theft light lit ? Theft deterrent relay ? You have to know how it works if you want to fix the problem . When you turn the key to start , the B+ power goes through the park neutral switch for automatic transmissions or the clutch start switch for manual transmissions , to the theft deterrent relay , to the theft deterrent module . If there is no anti-theft system problems the theft deterrent module energizes the relay ,closing the contacts inside sending B+ voltage to the S terminal on the starter solenoid .

I have cadillac deville 2003 my battery reads good but my front fuse panel fuse number eight itpcm/batt keeps poopping car shuts off I am trying to figure out wat is ausing this need hel


This fuse has nothing to do with the battery .
PCM BATT Fuse 10A Powertrain Control Module (PCM), Theft Deterrent Module. That just means it's B+ voltage feed for the PCM an theft module . IT actually supply's B+ voltage too two different feed's for the PCM . Connector 1 terminals 20 & 21 . You have a dead short to ground on one of those feeds or your PCM or theft control module is shorted . If you don't know automotive electrical , I suggest very strongly you take to someone who is !

98 chevy lumina wont start replaced starter and VATS relay only get click no crank what next?


Hey Todd how's it going ? How's the battery ? battery connections ? Are there any lights lit on the dash , security , check engine ? Because your getting a clicking there is nothing wrong with the theft deterrent relay ! Take a volt meter on the 20 volt scale an put negative lead at the negative battery post , then take your positive lead an put it on s terminal small wire on the starter solenoid an have someone turn the key to start position , you should see battery voltage . If you see battery voltage there is nothing wrong with the theft deterrent relay ! or the crank circuit. You need to do a voltage drop test on the starting system ! I'm thinking possible battery cable ! Starter Voltage Drop . you do know that you replaced a starter for no good reason !

2003 taurus lights dimed &suddenly died as if there was no battery. I tried to jump start it but i got nothing but clicking from curcuit breakers by the battery compartment


Yes... Your battery died. But why?

First, leave the cables on longer, a good 10 or 15 minutes. When you hear that clicking noise, it's because there is not enough power available to turn the starter. It means you need more power. Leave the jumper cables on for a few more minutes and you will have the power you need to start the car.

Once the car is started, remove the jumper cables and pull the positive (Red) cable off the terminal on your battery. If the car stays running, get a new battery. If the car dies immediately after pulling the positive battery cable off, then your altenator has gone out. The altenator is the electrical generator that provides electricity to your lights, engine, stereo, AC, etc. It should be putting out about 14.2 volts. Since your car is a 12 volt system, there are a couple of extra volts to spare, which are used to recharge the battery. It takes a lot of power from a battery to start the vehicle. That's why the alternator is there to takeover after startup, plus recharge your battery in the process.

I replaced the battery in a 06 impala ls but now it says service theft deterrent system how do i clear that message


Check your owners manual for a way to turn the anti theft sytem off. I have a car that when i take the terminals off or the battery dies, the theft system is active and the parking lights flash. There might be a small button somewhere under the dash you must hold for a certain amount of time and then turn the key. If you have your owners manual, it'll be in there.
