sounds like a problem with the anti-theft module. The module may have to be replaced or bypassed. I would not recommend bypassing it unless you are tech savy with vehicle electronics.

SOURCE: Theft light keeps flashing and the car won't start

The theft light will only blink rapidly while cranking if the immobilizer inside the ignition switch isn't reading the CHIP inside the key. the immobilizer is part of the factory antitheft system. they don't normally go bad, but the key could have lost its programming. or if you had a copy made with just a metal key without the chip in it. the dealership can reprogram it for you if that is the problem.

SOURCE: i have a 1996 sable car starts theft light starts

Take your chipped key in your driver side door lock. Turn in left and then right then left again. This should get it out of valet mode unless there is a button on the bottom of the dash. Your vehicle seems to be in valet mode which is why it is shutting down on you.

SOURCE: Instrument Cluster lights do not go on, emergency lights steady- Sable 2002

Has anyone figured this problem out? Our 2002 Sable just started this as well...instrument cluster lights out, turn/hazard lights on when the headlight switch is turned on. This has the auto on/off switch with fog lights. This is happening in the auto and manual on mode. Any solutions would be appreciated.<br />

Reset the alarm system. It won't start unless you do. If you can't reset thru your system controls, disconnect the battery ground terminal for 24 hours the re-connect. This will reset the computer and alarm should be cancelled.
