Vehicle will not start! Replaced the battery but it will still not turn over. Oil light, battery and engine light come on when initially trying to start.


Is the security light on or flashing when trying to start the vehicle .
Anti-Theft The passive anti-theft system (PATS) consists of the following components:
  • Anti-theft indicator
  • Encoded ignition key(s) (the key contains a transponder)
  • PATS transceiver
  • Powertrain control module (PCM)
PATS will disable the vehicle from starting if there is:
  • a damaged PATS key.
  • an unprogrammed PATS key.
  • a non-encoded key (a conventional key or one that does not have any electronics).
  • damaged wiring.
  • a damaged transceiver.
  • a damaged PCM.
If it is a anti-theft system you will have to take it to the dealer .This system will keep the starter from spinning the engine .

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.

Car want start full of gas and the theft light keep coming on and i dont have the manual and im stuck at the gas station is there a button to push or somthing


you have really problem of starting the engine once theft light comes on. these because of the security system cuts off power of the fuel pump. you can cut the yellow wire(tape it) on the steering colume just to make the engine start and the car be use.
after, if you want to put your car in standard change the Anti-theft system.

1996 jeep gcl and pcm is locked in theft mode. runs for 3 seconds and stops. Scanned vechicle and everything is ok but wont come off lock


Hi James:
Just keep in mind that the 1993-1998 Grand Cherokee was called "ZJ Series", so they have the same device and systems; in your 1996 Jeep Grand Cherokee Anti-Theft System is equipped with Vehicle Theft Security System (VTSS).

VTSS system monitors vehicle doors, hood, liftgate and ignition. If an attempt is made to enter or operate vehicle without proper disarming of system, vehicle horn will sound, headlights, taillights and parking lights will flash, and engine will be prevented from running.

The following wiring diagram and electronics circuit contains detail schematics of The ZL's Jeep Grand Cherokee Anti-Theft System. HERE you will find interconnection between electronics parts of the system such as body control module, auto headlamp light sensor. VTSS led, driver door module, passenger door module, cylinder lock switch, junction block, power distribution center, and grounding.

Additionally, Is request your email account to send this diagram (big scale) and other details in PDF format where you will learn also how the Vehicle Theft Security System works, removal, installation, testing and troubleshooting procedures.

Hope this helps; also keep in mind that your feedback is important and I`ll appreciate your time and consideration if you leave some testimonial comment about this answer. Keep in touch.

Thank you for using FixYa, have a nice day.

When anti theft light is blinking the car wont start. Can you bypass the anti theft device


On a 2003 Chevy Maibu the theft system light comes on and blinks when the system is triggered. The car will not start and the fuel pump cuts out. You must turn key to on and have all doors closed. Keep the key to on for 10 mins til theft light turns solid and then disappears. Then turn key to start and it should fire up.

Can you bypass theft system


No, I think he has the same problem I do. I have a stock 99 malibu...no real theft system. Usually after it rains or gets cold, a "theft system" light comes on in my dash. I can be driving, and the light will come on. If I turn the car off, I cannot restart the vehicle till about 20 minutes have passed and the light finally goes off. Sometimes this light comes on when I try to start the car in the morning. I put the key in the ignition, and the car will not start for 20 minutes till the darn theft system light goes off. From what I gathered, the theft system issue has something to do with a "passlock II" defect. I have no idea what this is, all I know is that I can't get a mechanic to listen to me, because the issue never repeats itself when I go to a garage. It gets a little annoying, but I've learned to deal with it.
