you can reset the system by turning key to on position for 5-10 mins and then try starting it but its probably a short or grounding prob try the engine to chassis ground

SOURCE: Theft-deterrent system problem

let it sit for about an hour, untouched to let it clear out of theft mode. If it doesn't start with a programmed key after that, you may have to take it into a shop and have it looked at. It may just be a bad transceiver but if any piece of the system has been replaced the keys have to be programmed with a dealership scan tool.

SOURCE: i can start my car

My guess would be the ignition switch itself since they are working in the axillary position. Never seen this happen personally, but has to be the problem. Don't know the model or year of car your working on, but if it's not a 60's model check your engine compartment fuse box or box's. Look for the ignition switch fuse's. On my GM car there are 2 60amp fuses that run the ignition on controls the starter circuit and the other controls the electrical system. Maybe not exactly how it works but would be worth popping the hood and taking a look at them.

SOURCE: 1997 chevy malibu anti theft system how do I fix

The late-90's GM Passlock system (e.g. 1997 Malibu, Regal, Impala, etc.) has a part around the ignition tumbler that goes bad and no longer reliably detects the valid key. In that situation, the "Theft System" light will slowly flash and the carburetor is cut off so the engine won't start. The time-out on the system is 10 minutes - you don't have to do anything, you don't have to disconnect the battery, the key can be out of the ignition -- it's just a time delay. After 10 minutes, the light goes out and you can try again (but if the key is again not detected, the light will start flashing again and you have to wait another 10 minutes)
Someone else, who had this problem, told me to remove all other keys from my keyring. The weight of the other keys pulls on the ignition key causing the key to be unreadable. It has been 7 weeks since I have been doing this and have not had a problem

My car is stuck in anti theft mode and I cant get my car to start


The problem is your Vats security system. This causes the car to either "not start" or "shut down" while running. (depending on the system) If the security light flashes, i guarantee that this is what the problem is. 1st trick, turn the key forward 2 clicks till right before it would normally start, leave like that for 10 minutes. ( no less ) After 10 minutes, turn key back then forward and your car might start.
Cheap fix:
----- http://vats.likeabigdog.com/
----- Bypassing the key
Never worry again fix:
----- http://newrockies.ca?ap_id=judd0081
----- With this fix, you can take that whole Vats, passlock, passkey **** system out of your car all together. Good info on both sites

SOUND LIKE THE THEFT SECURITY PROBLEMS. MOST OF THE TIME.THE IGNITION KEYS OR IGNITION SWITCH KEY LOCK CYLINDER WORN WHERE THE BCM AND PCM DONT RECOGNIZE KEY OR SWITCH SIGNAL.SO THE BCM AND PCM WILL GO IN THEFT SECURITY MODE.THE DEALERSHIP WILL HAVE TO FIX.BECAUSE IF THE KEYS , IGNITION SWITCH AND LOCK CYLINDER AND BCM HAS TO REPLACED.THEY WILL HAVE TO BE REPROGRAM USING DIAGNOSTIC EQUIPMENT. NOT A HOME FIX.YOU WILL NEED TO GET FIX SOON AS POSSIBLE.BECAUSE FAULTY SECURITY THEFT CODE WILL SHUT DOWN VECHICLE FUEL SYSTEM WHILE DRIVING OR IT WILL GET TO A POINT WHERE CAR WONT START NO MORE.THIS FIX WILL COST ABOUT $600.00.

This is from Ken on CarPros:
Here is the way to reset the security system.

https://www.2carpros.com/articles/how-to-reset-a-security-system

Here is the systems descriptions

There are 2 security system, namely anti-theft and immobilizer.

Here are the 2 systems.

DESCRIPTION & OPERATION
Anti-theft system is controlled by Body Control Module (BCM). BCM receives signals from hood switch, trunk switch, door switches and Local Control Modules (LCMs). There are 5 LCMs located throughout vehicle.

To set anti-theft system in armed mode, remove ignition key, close all doors, trunk and hood. Lock doors using key or remote controller. The SECURITY light will illuminate for 30 seconds, then flash in 2.4 second intervals, indicating system is in armed mode.

To cancel armed mode, unlock and open any door or trunk lid using key or remote controller. SECURITY light will flash every second, indicating system is disarmed.

Alarm will activate (horn sounds, headlights flash and starter circuit is disabled) if any of the following conditions occur while system is in armed mode:

Engine hood or trunk lid is opened using the hood or trunk lid release.
Door(s) is unlocked without key or remote controller.
Tampering with any door/trunk lid key cylinders.
To deactivate anti-theft system, unlock door or trunk using key or remote controller.

If it is the immobilizer that is preventing the engine from being started, ensure you have the correct key and the transponder is intact. Quite often keys are dropped and if it breaks open, the internals would scatter all over. When this occurs, there is a tendency for the transponder to be lost.

Please let us know happens so it will help others.

Best, Ken
I hope that helps you out!

Replaced stock stereo and now jeep wont start, it turns over but just wont start. The security system did honk a couple times during the installation of the new stereo


these vehicles have an anti-theft designed into them. When you remove the stereo, you probably shorted out the anti-theft and it won't let you start the car as if you were trying to steal it......
