If your car hase a security chip in the ignition key I think you will find a broken wire going to the key reader in the ignition switch, they are known to break with age because they flex with each key cycle.

To clarify, the anti-theft system will not kill the engine once it is running. The check gauges warning would be expected if the key switch was on and the engine was not running. No oil pressure was the most likely cause for the warning light.
The anti-theft would prevent the engine from cranking, but since the engine died I would expect to find something mechanical or electrical with the engine. Especially since you just had it replaced.
I would have the car towed to another shop and get it checked out. You may need documentation for a future lawsuit against the previous shop. If you work on it yourself its your word against theirs.
I hope you have a written warranty from the shop that installed the engine.

Car won't start anti-theft light is blinking


try reseting the computer by leaving the battery unhooked for about 30 min. if that doesnt work then it may be a clogged fuel filter or you could check the fuel shut off switch in the trunk behind the drivers trunk panel.

My 2000 ford expoler 4.0 dohc won't start fuel pump won't come on mabe my anti-theft how do i check that


Drop the tank and on top of the tank where the wires go is a special sort of electrical gizmo that will not allow the pump to work unless it gets the right frequency signal so just bypass it and run the wires direct onto the fuel pump --sorted--

Replaced the fuel pump. the car starts, but won't stay running


The anti-theft system will keep the car from being driven, so I would start there. You may need to reset the anti-theft or check the ignition key for problems.

06 trailblazer trouble with anti theft system, I think, starts right up then other times the anti theft light comes on and it won't start. can try it 2-4 hours later and it starts right up????


The first thing to do get it checked for DTC'S - diagnostic trouble codes . Not at auto zone or any other parts store , you want to have full scan of all the modules on the car. Don't know how much you know about automotive electronics , computer controlled systems etc.... Your vehicle has at least 10 modules (computers ) on board , there all talk to each other on a serial data network . C.A.N - controller area network . Or in the case of GM it has it's own . GMLAN -
How to Diagnose Controller Area Network CAN When you turn that ignition switch to start it is an input to the computer ,be it the PCM or BCM ..

Replaced ignition switch in 1999 chevy cavaliar rs, anti-theft light comes on and stays on and won't allow car to start and remain on or run


You have to do a relearn procedure on the anti-theft system:

Attempt to start the vehicle. Leave the ignition on until the THEFT SYSTEM indicator turns off (about 10 minutes). Turn the ignition switch off. Leave the ignition switch off with key in for about 10 minutes. Attempt to start vehicle.

99 chevy cavalier theft system light on steady, car wont crank.


My 2000 cavalier has done this for 6 months. You take your key out then open your door, wait ten minutes and the system resets itself and the car will start-annoying you bet!!!
