Your car has pass lock I, this is an easy fix. Simply attempt to start the car. The theft light will come on and may flash. Leave the key on after you try to start it for about 10 mintues. IF indeed it is a passlock I issues it will relearn and start up after 10minutes. If at anytime the key is turned back off after the intial start, the process must be restarted. Pass lock allows fuel to make it to the injectors and then pulse enough to get engine RPM to around 800 and then shuts the off injectors not the fuel pump. Let me know how you make out.

SOURCE: Anti-theft system

my wife locked her keys in and it is the only set. we have a 1994 ford explorer eddie baure edition. it is equiped with an anti theft system on it . if u or someone else has jimmyed the lock on one of the doors that may be your problem. on the lock is a senser and if that senser is not on there then the alarm will go off every time you open that door. so you have to take the door panal off and put it back on. if you don't know how to put it back on then take the opposite door panal off to see how it goes on. hope that helps you out

You have to do a relearn procedure on the anti-theft system:

Attempt to start the vehicle. Leave the ignition on until the THEFT SYSTEM indicator turns off (about 10 minutes). Turn the ignition switch off. Leave the ignition switch off with key in for about 10 minutes. Attempt to start vehicle.

1997 Chevy Cavalier z24. Theft Light blinks. Car will start for 2-3 seconds and then die. I read online and tried a few things but won't work. I turn the key so the radio and lights come on and left them...


Sounds like a dead battery. Clean the battery posts and terminals and charge it up. Then give it a try. If it starts go to auto parts store and get the charging system tested.
