Turning the key without starting it untill you hear the fuel pump stop (it will make a humming noize this is the fuel pump pressurizing the lines) then immeadiatly after it goes off turn your key to the off position repeat this 3 times then your car should start

Try to start the car, than the anti theift would shut the car off. you wait ten min with the key on, until you see the anti theift flash or disapear. than turn key to off position and try to start it. this will reprogram the computer.. Good luck.

you can also try disconnecting the battery for 30 minutes

This is something that you cannot afford to throw any more money at. Get a timing light to check to see if there is spark. Use a pressure guage to check fuel pump. Get bug lights to test injectors.

The theft system is set on my 1997 chevy cavalier help


If it is a pass lock system just turn the key to the on position, but do not start the engine and wait 10 minutes until the light stops flashing. Then turn it off and restart it. It should go away. If the light is not flashing in the first place then I don't know.
