94 deville wont turn over, i think my alarm is in theft mode

I have a remote starter on my 94 Caddy deville, well theyesterday i started it without the key and it started and was running fine. I was cleaning the inside of the car with it running and when i accidentally turned on the air the car just shut down and wouldnt turn back over. it wont do anything even with the key, the dash lights come on but wont turn over, and the radio has no power either,thats wierd. I know that the car comes with a anti theft security system on it and mybe somehow it armed itself, but the alarm i had put on it six years ago has engine kill to.Which one is preventing me from starting? And how do you reset it? I tried everything, brought new battery,checked all fuses, locked and unlocked door with the key, still nothing. Is their a button i need to push to reset? where is it? Do you think the security system is even the problem? please help.

How do u disable a 94 cadillac deville anti theft system


U can bypass it (called the VATS system) but not fully disable it, what is done mimics the key code to fool the VATS module into sending a OK to start signal to the fuel injection computer (called the ECM). go to the web link below for instructions on the bypass.

I have an 08 Jeep Liberty that has a remote starter on the key. I tried to unlock the car with the remote, however, that didn't work, so I unlocked the car with the key. The alarm went off, I tried pushing...


Sounds like you have a key without the chip in it. Replacement keys without the chip will only unlock the doors and will activate the theft alarm when you start the vehicle.

My cadilac will not start it says car start disabled something about car theft?


do you have the keypad for the alarm? The car thinks the alarm is tripped and it's disabling the starter. If you don't have the alarm pad, either get a new one or you can try to disable to starter kill relay. Is it a factory alarm or after market?

My 1990 Cadillac Deville wont start or engage starter


Sounds like you blew fuse. Fix fuse and borrow a car starting switch they use at car repair shops. As long as you can turn tumbler to on ,you can start using the starting switch from repair shop..There should be a way to run a start button to start car and your off/on key should be OK

Keyless remote wont work and everytime a door is opened alarm sounds for 30 secs can it be reprogrammed to work?


try replacing the battery in the remote and then have the alarm program re flashed if the new battery in the remote doesn't fix the problem.Unfortunately I believe this has to be done at the caddy dealer.good luck

1999 Infiniti 30 wont start. Disconnected battery for 20 mins. and it strated 4 times in a row. Then I set the alarm and turned alarm off and it wont start. Is this a security issue or a starter problem?


Sounds like it went into theft mode when you unhooked the battery and tried to start it multiple times. Most cars have some sort of SKIM key which is a key with a computer chip in it that is programmed to a module in the car. If this programming is lost by a battery diosconnect it usually needs to be reprogrammmed by a dealer. The reason it won't start is because the theft mode probably has the fuel or spark disabled as a theft deterrent.

94 vw jetta would not start


94 Jettas have a anti-theft kill switch. It can mimik the starter or alternator. Lock all the doors with them closed, then unlock the drivers side with the key. Wait about two min then try cranking it. Should start up instantly, if not reset the computer.
