Hello

To solve this on your fuse box you will see the theft icon. You probaly need to take the fuse out. Wait for a minute (you cloud try to start there will be no power going to the theft control board) then place it back then. If that doesn't work then your Theft system board might have problem. You might need to contact a mechanic.

Hope this helped

2004 ford explorer will not turn over with key but remote starter switch makes it turn over


Its a good possibility that the Anti-theft is interferring with the circuit. If you have an extra ignition key, use that in case the password chip in your regular FOB has detriorated.

There is a brake sensor which is on the upper brake pedal. It interlocks with the starter to prevent starting without having your foot on the brake pedal. Check your brake lights for operation. If the brake lights stay dark with your foot on the pedal, the switch is broke or knocked out of position. A common problem.

Next, there are small wires for the starter solenoid. You can use a test light on one removed wire and ground the test light to the vehicle, the other end in the small wire. Turn the keyswitch to start, with brake pedal pressed and see if it lights up. If it does light up, the starter solenoid may be bad.

Battery level. Ford Anti-theft and some say Battery-saver, can cause both starting and charging problems. A fully charged battery can be at 13.2V- 13.6V. When Ford systems detect low voltage it can activate the Anti-theft, battery-saver, and even disconnect the charging system to allow the battery to completely drain. In some cases the Anti-theft drops starter voltage to around 7V so the starter will not spin. Have the battery tested.

I know of 2004 trucks that were jump started and showed charging, then after 5-10 minutes they lost the charging system. Some people lost the charging system at 70MPH and drove until they stalled. All because of the automatic features built into the trucks. A new battery fixed the problem. Your problem could stem from this.

My BMW E30 1992 does not want to start. It sounds as if the anti theft code does bot want to disarm once one has put in the right code. So disconnected battery and waited fro 24hours reconnect battery...


Here is information on disarming the alarm! First you need to know if it is a factor or after market system! Here is how you tell if the headlights are flashing, the alarm system is factory installed. Inserting the key into the driver door lock and turning to the left then back to the right is supposed to disarm it. If the parking lights are blinking,, the alarm is an aftermarket add on, and there should be a disarm button under the dash on the driver side. If it' an aftermarket alarm, you should be able to have it removed. There is a way to bypass the factory alarm. There is a wiring harness in the driver's door. You will have to remove the door panel to find it. The wire is dark green and purple. Splice into that wire and ground it to the chassis and the alarm should no longer work

Anti theft light comes on the car won't start


Your "inmobiliser" system is actived.

The anti-theft feature prevents the car from being started when one of several anti-theft devices is faulty are have otherwise been activated. The problem you descibe might be the ignition swith, which is known to wear out quickly on those models. The system can be completly disabled only when the car is running (meaning the teft deterent system is inactive after the Passlock II system detects the proper key in the ingition). A wire can be cut that would perminantly disable Passlock II, meaning any key that opens the door (or a screwdriver) could start the car. If the ignition swtich goes out or this wire is cut while the engine is off (theft deterent system is active) then the car will have to be towed back to the dealer to have the ignition system replaced and reprogrammed.

I have called Chevy and asked how to fix this problem. If you turn the key to the on position, right before it cranks when the lights and radio turn on. Leave it there for ten minutes until the anti theft light turns off. Then turn the key to the off position and then try starting the car.

Rumour has it that it is a yellow wire to be cut. Do more research, but D O N ' T cut it with the engine off. See first paragraph above.

Hope this help (remember rated and comment this). Good luck.

Need to disconnect anti teft device. where is it located?


if you activate the anti theft on the jeep because of no remote,you have to lock and unlock the passenger side door twice to disarm it.
it is not easy to bypass the anti theft module.a place that installs alarms would be the best bet.get an after market alarm put in for about the cost of a couple remotes.or if you buy a used remote,it can be re programmed using the obd2 diagnostic unit.
