Question about 1997 Plymouth Neon

1 Answer

A guy I do repos for gave me a 1997 neon, because it has an anti-theft device on it, and he did not want to mess with it. When you turn the key, nothing happens, and the battery goes from 12 volts down to real low. A mechanic friend of mine started ripping everything out, but we still cannot fix it. He doesn't seem to know what he is doing. Any advice? BJ

    Have you tried jumping it? Do you know if the battery has an internal short or not?

Yeah...find a real mechanic and the maker of the anti theft system

A good mechanic can do both.

My theft light is flashing but my 1997 expedition wont start.The vehicle turns over but just don't start.


ANTI-THEFT SYSTEM Passive anti-theft system
Your ignition key has a unique imbedded transponder which engages engine electronics and allows the vehicle to be started. Without the use of your special ignition key, the vehicle will not start.

During each vehicle start, the coded key is read by the anti-theft system. If the key’s ID code matches the code in the anti-theft system, the vehicle is enabled to start.

Anti-theft system
Briefly illuminates when the ignition is turned to the ON position to verify that the passive anti-theft system is operating properly.

Also, its possisble that tou have actovated the fuel pump switch.

CHeck it.

I just bought a 97 pontiac trans sports and i dont remember the anti theft thingy to starty it and the guy i bought the van from is gone


Contact a Pontiac Dealer, I believe on that van, if you take and cycle the key off and on 3 times, that will reset the alarm and anti theft thingy.

Ok. my car 97 pontiac sunfire needed a new alternator output cable. guy put a new one on but apparently messed with something else and now its not starting. said the theft light came on and that it isnt...


Tell the guy to call the dealer and ask them how to override the anti theft system or reset it. when you disconnect the battery and lose power it kicks on the anti theft device and it won't get fire.

1997 cadillac deville delagance - anti theft device


I've got a 97 deville d'elegance that has issues similar to these. Last year the red anti-theft light came on and the car wouldn't start-took it to the dealership and they replaced the PCM? (the main brain for the system) for $900...the guy told us the wiring was so corroded he didn't want to mess with it much. Today the message started flashing on the dash that says "anti-theft problem/ car may not restart" but it still turned over in the driveway a couple times so I am hoping I can reset it. The wiring system is jacked and will probably need to replace the wiring harness completely. Doubt its worth it. Not a secure feeling with 2 babies in the back seat in the middle of winter....
