Theft light flashs ignition wont even click


When the light is flashing, the theft system is armed and immobilizing the car. Try leaving the ignition key in the on position for 10 minutes. See if the light stops blinking and goes off-if it does, the system is reset. Turn key to off and then try to start it.

Starter ok no blown fuse. all lights working but it wont start. anti theft light blinking fast os soon as you turn it to on. what is the problem.


it is the microchip on your key.. you have to reset the key by sticking it into your ignition and turn it to the run position for 5 mins. at this time the light should stop blinking then turn your key to the off position for 1 sec. repeat six times then your last attempt the car would start guarantee.... notice: as you turn the key to run position the light would blink rapidly for 5mins.. right when it stops turn to the off position for 1 sec.. remember six times..

This is ONLY a suggestion. Take your positive battery cable off for at least ONE MINUTE. Then put it back on. Other than that I wouldn't know. The car has a computer. Sometimes resetting them gets rid of small quirks. If the car didn't turn over at all you might need a new car battery. But try the battery cable thing first. Its the least expensive.

2002 Ford Explorer: Security system prevents car from starting.


Your ignition requires a radio signal from a chip inside your key to start the car . Your car wont start because you are using the wrong key, your ignition is no longer able to read the key (ignition replacement), or your key is malfunctioning.

Theft light blinks rapidly and car wont start


You may have a problem with the key sensor in the ignition lock cylinder, if it goes bad the system can't id your key code and it locks you out.

If the light has not stop blinking when you wait ten minutes then it is not going to crank. My does it a lot but after 10 minutes the light has stopped blinking. I think that the ignition switch needs replacing or maybe just the key is worn out. I think when anybody goes to fix this GM problem it is a guessing game.
