My 97 infiniti qx4 alarm is going off n won't start


When the anti theft system was created,the dealers forgot to tell the new car buyers about how much the fob matters to the vehicle,without it,owners are stuck,your anti theft device is activated,you need to lock and unlock your doors a couple times with the key fob,not the key,and then you need to put the key in the ignition and start it,if you dont have your key fob,call your car dealer to get a new one,they are programmed for each car only,you cannot bypass it.if you lost your fob or never had it,whatever,you need to have the exact fob that came with that car from the factory,the key and fob have a chip in them that only go to that certain car,if you do not have it,then you need to buy a new one from the dealer or ebay and then you need to contact your dealer about programming the fob to your car,you might not have to have it towed if they have the documents from the car,the only other way is to get a junk car,with the steering column,key,fob and all computer boxes and door locks and switch them,i just did that with a 98 dodge dakota,i havent finished yet,im hoping it works.

I need to know how to do a relearning process for the PCM to communicate the TDS on my 1998 Cadillac DeVille I recently replaced the computer and it won't start! I plugged my scanner to it and it only...


The last time I looked, the PCM has to be programmed by a dealer or authorized shop for the vehicle VIN number (the anti-theft and radio systems will already be programmed to only accept this number). If it is, then the anti-theft system has to be reset, also usually by a dealer with a programmer.

How do I reset the anti theft on my 98 Cadillac?


I think there is more going on than just the CD issue. Check all error codes (DTCs) in the vehicle for a better understanding of the problem.

My 97 malibu theft system light stays on as i drive


Most any garage can probably handle it.
Someone would need to check the sensor in the lock cylinder and the anti-theft module. The sensor in the lock is supposed to read the chip in your key.

This is just a guess, but try disconnecting the battery cables for a few minutes, then reconnect them and see if you can correct it.

97 Deville still reads anti-theft problem on dash even after the key resistor is by-passed with resistors., will not turn over, fully charged battery. ?


The key resistor that you installed only bypasses the key and ignition aspects of the security system. The theft deterrent module is still active and is most likely your prpoblem. This link explains.

I took a stock RDS radio out of my 98 catera and put it in my 97 catera... it reads "Locked-THEFTLOCK active" on the screen. Please help


If you never entered a lockout code for your radio, youll have to take it to the dealer to get them to clear it out.

More information is needed but, reading between the lines, this is usually an issue with antitheft device functionality and can only be accessed by the dealer.
