Good Evening, this is a common ocurrence with the gm ignition switches. What you need to do is try and start the car then leave the key in the forward position for 11-15 mins then shut it off and do it again 2 more times and that should recode the system. I hope this helps and if you have any more questions please feel free to ask.

I own a 2.2L Chevy Malibu and I was changing a couple old fuses; when the anti-theft system kicked in and I don't know how to reset it. Any ways to reset to the anti-theft system.


ignition on number 2 so the ignition lights come on and press fob to lock unlock doors should reset then. if not then you need to remove the battery for 10 min and then try again.

How am i supposed to get ride off the Service theft system?


It's hard to fix something if you don't know how it works ! Fixed ignition ? What did you fix or change ?
SERVICE THEFT SYSTEM
Security: Refer to Theft Systems Description and Operation in Theft Deterrent
You need to have it checked for trouble codes .
The theft deterrent system on this vehicle is comprised of two separate systems, the vehicle theft deterrent (VTD) system and the content theft deterrent (CTD) system. The VTD system prevents drive away theft by keeping the vehicle from starting. The CTD system is the vehicle alarm system which discourages unauthorized entry into the vehicle. These systems are described and diagnosed separately within this section.
Theft System Indicators
SECURITY The instrument panel cluster (IPC) illuminates the SECURITY indicator as determined by the vehicle theft deterrent (VTD) system and the content theft deterrent (CTD) system. The IPC receives a message from the theft deterrent control module or the rear integration module (RIM) via the serial data circuit requesting illumination.
?€¢
The VTD system requests the IPC to illuminate the indicator only when the ignition switch is ON. The VTD system uses the indicator as a malfunction indicator. For specific VTD condition that will illuminate the security indicator, refer to
Vehicle Theft Deterrent (VTD) Description and Operation .


?€¢
The CTD system requests the IPC to illuminate the indicator only when the ignition switch is OFF. The CTD system uses the indicator in order to identify system status. For specific CTD condition that will illuminate the security indicator, refer to Content Theft Deterrent (CTD) Description and Operation .


?€¢
The IPC performs the displays test at the start of each ignition cycle. The indicator illuminates for approximately 3 seconds.
SERVICE THEFT SYSTEM The radio illuminates the SERVICE THEFT SYSTEM message when the VTD system detects a failure. The radio receives a message from the theft deterrent control module via the serial data circuit requesting illumination.
This is one you need to take to the dealer , unless you have a GM factory scan tool !

How do you reset the alarm system on a 98 olds silhouette after it triggers without the remote entry


Theft Deterrent Arm/Disarm Modes
Important: Although mode 2 provides increased security, the content theft deterrent system disarms only by pressing unlock on the keyless entry transmitter. This can pose a problem if the keyless entry transmitter is damaged, lost, or inoperative for any reason while you attempt to disarm the content theft deterrent system.
Mode 1: The system arms when you lock the doors with the keyless entry transmitter. The system disarms when you unlock the left front, right front, or liftgate door with the key or the keyless entry transmitter. The system does not arm when you lock the doors with a power door lock switch.

Mode 2: The system arms when you lock the doors with the keyless entry transmitter. The system disarms when you unlock the doors with the keyless entry transmitter. The system does not disarm when you unlock the doors with the key.

Mode 3: The system arms when you lock the doors using a power door lock switch or the keyless entry transmitter. The system disarms when you unlock the left front, right front, or liftgate door with the key or the keyless entry transmitter.
Changing the Feature Customization Modes
  1. Turn off the IP dimmer switch.
  2. Turn the ignition switch to the LOCK position.
  3. Remove the BCM PRGRM fuse.
  4. Turn the ignition switch to the ACC position. The BCM flashes the fasten belts indicator and sounds the chime 4 times, which indicates that BCM type 4 is installed on the vehicle. At this point, the BCM has entered the feature customization mode.
  5. In order to change the theft deterrent/shock sensor mode, turn the headlamp switch from OFF to PARK and back to OFF.
  6. The BCM flashes the fasten belts indicator and sounds the chime a number of times equivalent to the theft deterrent/shock sensor mode. A transition past mode 4 repeats the sequence starting with mode 1.
  7. Complete the following steps in order to change the theft deterrent arm/disarm mode:
6.1.
Insert the key in the left front, right front, or liftgate door lock cylinder.


6.2.
Rotate the key from the center to the unlock position.


6.3.
Press the horn button on the remote keyless entry transmitter.


6.4.
Count the number of chimes that you hear. The number of chimes tells you which mode you have set.


6.5.
Press the horn button again in order to change the mode. Continue to press the button until you hear the number of chimes that indicates the mode that you want.


6.6.
Turn the key back to the center position and remove the key from the door key cylinder.

In order to exit and save the current feature customization modes use the following procedure:

  1. Turn the ignition switch to the LOCK position.
  2. Reinstall the BCM PRGRM fuse.
If you are unable to change locking modes Theft Deterrent System Feature Customization Inoperative

How to reset a anti thef system


There is no way to reset the "Anti-Theft" system. Hopefully you have more than one ignition key. Slide one key into the ignition cylinder and try to start the engine. If nothing, try the same thing with the other key. There is a transponder inside each key and the exciter ring will send a signal to the key. If the signal that it receives is not valid, then the Anti-Theft system will tell the ECU not to allow the car to be started. What is the security light doing while you try to start the engine? Did this problem happen out of the blue? Was a repair performed on the ignition switch? Are there any other symptoms? Please write back and let me know, good luck.

Replaced the starter, the ignition switch, and the relay on the starter and know my 1999 Pontaic Sunfire will not start. I have a theft system but it don't work do I need to reset that?


Changing the ignition has caused a break in the communication of the anti theft security system. Here is a link that will explain how this system works and offer some ways to fix it yourself. I've been dealing with these systems for a long time, i've had great luck with just bypassing the entire system. there is a link for that also on this page.

Would anti theft cause car to quit


Sounds like a bad ignition switch have ur body control module checked for codes if u have a B2960 and or B3033 then replace the ignition switch.

SECURITY
If your vehicle has the remote keyless entry system, this feature allows you to select the method used to arm the vehicle's security system. When SECURITY appears on the display, press the reset button to scroll through the available settings:
* RKE (Remote Keyless Entry) (default): The content theft-deterrent system will arm when the lock button on the remote keyless entry transmitter is pressed or when the power door lock switch is pressed.

* PASSIVE: The content theft-deterrent system will arm itself 60 seconds after the ignition has been turned off and all of the doors have been closed.
