To start the engine you have to turn this light off. Locking the car and opening the drive's door with key sometime help. Disconnecting the battery for 30 minutes might clear the code. If all these won't work then you need to scan the codes with a good scanner. Hope this might help.

    You might have a bad battery or alternator too. The battery voltage should be at least 12.6Volts with engine off. If the battery voltage is less than 14 volts with running engine this indicates charging system trouble. A stop at AutoZone will help to scan engine codes and check alternator for free. Sorry for the delay ...

Try leaving the key in on for 10-15 minutes. If the blinking theft light stops blinking and goes out, it has reset. Turn key to off, and then try to start it.

Turn your key all the way back towards you in the battery only postion. Then press and hold the red alarm flashing button til you hear the beeping noise it makes. This will disable your alarm and your car will start.

The theft system light is on and the engine only turns over. it won't start


you will have to pull the fuse for the anti theft system, (it may be in the power distribution box in the engine compartment rather than in the cabin fuse panel, but it will be shown on the diagram regardless) it wont start because the fuel pump is disabled any time the alarm goes off.

No odometer light or gear selector. tried changeing cluster didn't work. didn't know if it was a common problem. maybe an easy solution before i start diggin into it.


Thanks Johnyboyy & Sam35edm! I checked my fuse (10amp) and it looked ok. I replaced it and the lights for the odometer and gear shift indicator both lighted up. I then inspected the old fuse and it looked a little tarnished on the contacts. I then cleaned the contacts on both sides of the original fuse with a razor blade to remove the tarnish. The light lit brighter than ever! Looks like the fuse wasn't making good contact in its socket because of the tarnish.

Security Light always on, door lock fuse keeps blowing


This is most likely a problem with your Passlock anti-theft system which is known issue with these cars. Passlock is a "passive" anti-theft system, which means that it will disable your ability to start the car if it thinks there is a problem. The three components that can cause this are: 1) Ignition Switch, 2) Ignition Cylinder, 3) Body Control Module (computer). The dealer is the only one who can solve this problem (unless you can bypass it, but it is not that easy). Estimated repair from most dealers is $800 and up.

Try pulling the fuse for the anti theft system and starting. If the car starts normally, then the problem is with the theft system. The theft system will reset itself after a period of time.
