The antitheft picture/icon is a visual indication that something in the car's antitheft system is failing. In most GM cars and trucks there is a hidden system that most people are unaware even exists. From the moment you put your key in the ignition, there begins a constant line of communication between your key's security chip or transponder, to the ignition's lock cylinder, and then to the car's TDM (Theft Deterrent Module). These 3 parts are in CONSTANT communication. If the key is in the ignition, then these parts are sending signals to each other. The security light illuminates when that signal gets broken, even just for a second. When the signal breaks, the car misinterprets this as an attempt at theft and goes into antitheft mode. The car thinks its being stolen or hotwired because it is not getting that signal from YOUR specific key. This is why the security light turns on and shuts down your vehicle. This link explains it pretty well.

How to reset the antitheft system on a 2005 gmc canyon it turns but wont stay on what do i need to do an i need to know quick


If the truck has a factory anti-theft system, the system will not allow the engine to crank or start. So if it cranks, you have a different problem.

Locked radio 2006 gmc canyon


Most modern cars have a security code enable for the installed radio/cd players. This is an anti-theft device.

The initial documents given to the owner when the vehicle was purchased lists this code and how to reset it.

If you are second owner/original owner who has lost this information, then, you can approach gmc canyon dealer and they will have this code on their server. Normally a free service (I believe).

The security code is lost from the radio whenever keep alive voltage is removed from the radio. i.e. You disconnected or replace the battery.

I hope this helps.

I have a 2008 ford ranger xlt 4x4 4.0 . changed the motor and the battery was disconnected . now the truck will not start cause the anti theft is locked what do i do ???


Ensure you have "ALL" the wires connected and a fully charged battery. Then use your remote to turn off the anti theft devises and your truck should start with no problems. You may have to switch the anti theft device from your old engine to your new one or take the vin of the new engine to the dealer and get the code for that engine.
