How do I reset the ProLock system?


Hi Carol , do you mean PATS passive antitheft system ? Locked up your car ,do you mean it won't crank over an start ?
The passive anti-theft system uses radio frequency identification technology to deter a driveaway theft. Passive means that it does not require any activity from the user.
  • During each vehicle start sequence, the ignition key identification code is requested by the vehicle protection anti-theft electronics.
  • If the key's ID code has been programmed into the system, the powertrain control module (PCM) (12A650) is signaled to enable the vehicle to start.
  • If the key's ID code is not programmed into the system, or if no encoded key is detected, then the powertrain control module is signaled to disable the vehicle.
The passive anti-theft system communicates the state of the security system to the powertrain control module via the J-1850 communications network data link connector (DLC). The powertrain control modulebased on the communications from the passive anti-theft system, will determine if the vehicle's engine is enabled to start. The passive anti-theft system differs from the active anti-theft alarm system in that the passive anti-theft system enables/disables the vehicle from starting and only operates with the ignition switch in RUN/START position. The active anti-theft alarm system has perimeter protection capabilities and operates only with the ignition switch OFF. Refer to Section 13-11A for active anti-theft alarm system information.
Vehicle Disabling The passive anti-theft system will be activated and disable the vehicle from starting if any of the following conditions exist:
  • damaged encoded key
  • unprogrammed key
  • non-encoded key (key has no electronics)
  • wiring concern
  • transceiver concern
  • Passive Anti-Theft System (PATS) control module concern
  • J-1850 Communications Network concern
  • Powertrain Control Module (PCM)

Reset anti theft system


it has gone into theft mode. you will need to have the system rest. it makes it so the parts are useless. when you take the battery off for any reason you need to have the key in the ignition on number 2 then off to 0. leave key in and you now have 30 seconds to take of the battery. just taking off the battery with out doing this can activate the systerm.

I need to deactivate the immobilizer on my car


There is a small switch that activates/deactivates the anti theft security feature on your car. It is located near the hood release. Flip the switch off. Try to start. This should reset. The security system is activated inadvertently by locking and unlocking the doors. If the correct series is not followed the system will be armed and silent, often resulting in a dead battery.. no fun! I went through the same problem for a month before I found the solution- jump starting the car will also bypass the system, however it's not the ideal long term solution :)

Absolutely! If the Passive Anti-Theft System (PATS) "thinks" you are trying to steal the car, it is SUPPOSED to keep it from starting. The problem is that the PATS thinks you are a car theif when you are not.
Below is a table straight out of the service manual for your vehicle. Please note that the FIRST action that must be taken for any PATS system malfunction is to scan the computer system for fault codes.

Theft system problem car may not restart, car shuts down and a jump overides system and restarts


Not sure your anti-theft system has activated. You have the Passlock II system, and jump will not deactivate. Suspect your battery is low or the terminals corroded. Recommend you check the charge on the battery and clean/tighten the terminals. If the battery is low, you may have an alternator issue. Let us know what happens.
