DESCRIPTION

VEHICLE THEFT SECURITY SYSTEM

The Vehicle Theft Security System (VTSS) is designed to protect against whole vehicle theft. The system monitors vehicle doors, and ignition action for unauthorized operation.
The alarm activates:
  • Sounding of the horn
  • Flashing of the headlamps/park/tail lamps
  • An engine kill feature (with SKIS)

SENTRY KEY IMMOBILIZER SYSTEM

The Sentry Key Immobilizer System (SKIS) is designed to provide passive protection against unauthorized vehicle use by disabling the engine, after two (2) seconds of running, whenever an invalid key is used to start the vehicle. The SKIS is active whenever the ignition is on and does not require any customer intervention. The primary components of the system are the Sentry Key Remote Entry Module (SKREEM), Sentry Key (ignition key with a transponder molded into the head), indicator light, Body Control Module (BCM), and the Next Generation Controller (NGC). The SKREEM is mounted on the ignition switch/lock cylinder assembly with the molded, integral antenna mounted around the ignition housing. The indicator light, is located instrument panel switch pod, just to the right of the instrument cluster.
Electrical • Vehicle Theft Security • Operation Report a problem with this article

OPERATION

VEHICLE THEFT SECURITY SYSTEM

Upon failure of proper SKREEM communication to the Next Generation Controller (NGC), the NGC will shut off fuel after two seconds of run time. The engine will not re-crank on the key cycle that the failure occurred, a full key down sequence must be performed for the engine to crank again. After six consecutive fuel shut-offs, the engine will no longer crank on subsequent key cycles. The failure must be corrected and a valid communication process between the SKREEM and the NGC must occur for the engine to crank and start again.
The electronics for the VTSS are part of the Body Control Module (BCM). The system is armed when the vehicle is locked using the:
  • Power door lock switches (with any door ajar)
  • Remote Keyless Entry transmitter.
  • Door Cylinder Lock Switches.
For vehicles equipped with SKIS, the doors do not have to be locked to enable the fuel shut off feature.
After the vehicle is locked and the last door is closed, the set LED indicator in the instrument panel switch pod will flash quickly for 16 seconds, indicating that arming is in progress. If no monitored systems are activated during this period, the system will arm and the LED will flash at a .5 Hertz (Hz) rate. If the liftgate is open, the LED will change its flash rate.
This indicates that the system is armed. If fault is detected on the driver key cylinder input, the indicator LED will remain solid during the arming process, although the system will still arm. If the indicator LED does not illuminate at all upon door closing it indicates that the system is not arming.
Passive disarming occurs upon normal vehicle entry by unlocking either door with the ignition key/remote transmitter. This disarming will also halt the alarm once it has been activated.
A tamper alert exists to notify the driver that the VTSS had been activated. This alert consists of 3 horn pulses when the vehicle is disarmed.
NOTE: The VTSS will not arm by pushing down the door lock mechanism. This will manually override the system.
For Door Cylinder Lock Switch service, (Refer to 8 - ELECTRICAL/POWER LOCKS/DOOR CYLINDER LOCK/UNLOCK SWITCH - REMOVAL).
If the VTSS is triggered, the horn will pulse, headlamps/marker lamps will flash, and the VTSS warning lamp will flash. If BCM determines the threat to be false and the VTSS is not triggered again, the system will shut down and rearm itself after three minutes. If a trigger is still active, the alarm will continue for an additional 15 minutes without the horn. The VTSS monitors the passenger compartment.
NOTE: System will not arm if passenger compartment is not secure.

ARMING THE VTSS - METHOD A

  1. With the key removed from the ignition lock and any door open (excluding liftgate), actuate one of the following:
  • Power door lock button to LOCK,
  • Key fob LOCK button
  • Driver door lock key cylinder to locked position.
  • Close all opened doors. Liftgate can remain open.
  • After the last door is closed, an arming time-out period of sixteen seconds will start, then the VTSS will become armed.

    ARMING THE VTSS - METHOD B

    Actuating the key fob transmitter LOCK button, key locking the front doors with the doors closed and the ignition locked will begin the arming time-out period. If method A, 16 second time-out sequence was in process when method B was actuated, the 16 second time-out will restart from the time of the second actuation.
    If the security lamp does not illuminate at all upon final door closure, it indicates that the system is not arming.
    The current VTSS status armed or disarmed shall be maintained in memory to prevent battery disconnects from disarming the system.

    TRIGGERING THE VTSS

    After the VTSS is armed, the following actions will trigger the alarm:
    • Opening any door (excluding liftgate).
    • Turning the ignition to the RUN position.
  • NOTE: When the VTSS is ARMED, the interior power door lock switch ?UNLOCK? will be disabled until the vehicle is disarmed.
    CAUTION: The VTSS indicator LED will trigger and engine will continue to run if the vehicle is equipped with SKIS and the proper key is used to start the vehicle. This condition will occur if the VTSS has been triggered. If valid key is used, VTSS will disarm.

    CENTRAL LOCKING/UNLOCKING

    This vehicle theft security system feature allows you lock all the doors with the key by using the drivers door lock cylinder.
    All vehicle doors and liftgate are locked with the first turn of the key to the LOCK position from the drivers door. A double activation feature of central unlocking requires you to turn the key in the door lock cylinder to the unlock position two times within two seconds to UNLOCK all vehicle doors at once.
    The first turn of the key in the door lock cylinder will disarm the system (the driver door cylinder lock switch connected to the back of the driver door lock cylinder) and unlock your drivers door. The second actuation within two seconds will then unlock all doors and the liftgate.

    SENTRY KEY IMMOBILIZER SYSTEM

    The SKIS includes keys from the factory which are pre-programmed. Each SKIM will recognize a maximum of eight Sentry Keys. If the customer would like to own additional keys other than those provided with the vehicle, they can be purchased from any authorized dealer. These keys must be programmed to the SKREEM on the vehicle in order for the system to recognize them as valid keys. This can be done by the dealer with a DRB III® scan tool or by a customer if this feature is available in their market and they have two (2) valid keys already available to them. The SKIS performs a self-test each time the ignition switch is turned to the ON position and will store Diagnostic Trouble Codes (DTC's) if a system malfunction is detected. The SKIS can be diagnosed and any stored DTC's can be retrieved using a DRB III® scan tool as described in the appropriate Body Diagnostic Procedures manual.
    With the light being on there is a code stored in the computer that controls anti-theft , Your best bet would be to take your vehicle to the dealer !

    How do i diss-arm the engine immobilizer?


    The 'immobilizer' is an integral part of the engine computer and cannot be disarmed. It can, however, be tricked. There is a device used on cars with this system that tricks the computer to think the key is there during remote start. The bypass module, as it is called, learns the transponder code from the key (more advanced models) or just uses a spare key with a transponder in it to trick the engine computer. This requires you to have the key to the vehicle. If you don't have the key, the only option is to get a dealer to cut you one based on your VIN number. You'll have to provide proof of ownership. They do it this way because just anyone could get a VIN number from a parking lot and have a key made if they didn't require proof of ownership.

    Now, you didn't give any information about what model car you have and the year, so I can't give you more detailed information on what type of immobilizer system the car has and different ways, if any, that it can be tricked. Keep this in mind when you rate.

    I work for a garage and we have a 1998 mystique that wont start we were wondering if there was some sort of anti-theft systeme that we dont know about and also we would like to have the were abouts of the...


    Starting System
    The function of the starting system is to crank the engine at a speed fast enough to allow the engine to start. Heavy cables, connectors and switches are used in the system because of the large currents required.
    The starting system consists of a gear reduced starter motor, battery, remote control switch (ignition switch) and relay.
    Vehicles equipped with automatic transaxle have a transmission range sensor attached to the circuit which prevents operation of the starter motor unless NEUTRAL or PARK are selected.
    Vehicles equipped with a manual transaxle have a start inhibit switch in the starter control circuit, which prevents operation of the starter motor unless the clutch pedal is in the applied position.
    ------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    The anti - theft protection system provides protection from unauthorized entry into the passenger compartment.
    The system is controlled by an anti - theft alarm control. When armed, unauthorized entry into the vehicle is detected by lamp switches.
    Once triggered, the system flashes the headlamps, the parking lamps, the alarm indicator, and sounds the horn. In addition, the starter circuit is disabled to prevent starting the vehicle until the system is disarmed.
    System Arming
    The system will be armed by the remote entry transmitter when the following input sequence is followed:
    1. Turn the ignition switch off and remove the key.
    1. Close all doors (unlocked).
    1. Press the LOCK button on a transmitter to lock doors. Alarm warning lamp will turn on.
    1. Wait for the anti - theft warning lamp to turn off.
    The system will also be armed when the following input sequence is followed:
    1. Turn the ignition switch off and remove the key.
    1. Open a door. Alarm warning lamp will flash.
    1. Lock doors with power door switches. Alarm warning lamp will now glow steadily.
    1. Close all doors.
    1. Wait for the anti - theft warning lamp to turn off.
    Opening any door will activate the alarm after the alarm is armed.
    Disarming an Untriggered System
    The system can be disarmed by performing one of the following procedures.
    • Driver or RH front door is unlocked with a key.
    • Driver door is unlocked by pressing the UNLOCK button of a remote entry transmitter.
    • If remaining in the vehicle, turn the ignition switch to ON or ACC position.
    System Triggering
    The armed alarm system will be triggered if any door is opened without using a key or a remote entry transmitter to unlock the door first.
    Disarming a Triggered System
    Carry out either of the following steps will disarm the triggered alarm system.
    • Driver or RH front door is unlocked with a key.
    • Driver door is unlocked by pressing the UNLOCK button of a remote entry transmitter.
    Two minutes and 45 seconds after the system has been triggered, the horns and exterior lamps will shut off automatically. The system will then reset to an armed state and will trigger again if another intrusion occurs.
    --------------------------------------------------------------------
    Passive Anti-Theft System (PATS)
    The Passive Anti-Theft System (PATS), known as SecuriLock, is fully passive in operation and requires no special procedures by the driver to arm or disarm the system. It is invisible to normal scrutiny and is operated by a transponder within the key body. This communicates with the module through a transceiver mounted around the ignition switch lock barrel.
    The PATS functionality is incorporated within the powertrain control module.
    PATS keys contain an electronic device inside, and are physically larger than a non-PATS key.
    The transponder code reading is carried out when the key is inserted into the ignition lock barrel, and turned from position 0' to position II' or III' to crank the engine. If the PCM receives the correct code signal, the engine will start. Should the code received not be recognized, the engine will not crank as the PATS is still armed and the engine immobilized.
    Anti-Theft Indicator
    Whenever the ignition is switched on the anti-theft indicator will remain on for three seconds while the system carries out an initial ignition key-read.
    The anti-theft indicator will flash rapidly for three seconds to indicate the PATS has immobilized the vehicle.
    For additional information on the PATS fault codes, refer to the Diagnosis and Testing section.

    The car wont start sometimes and sometimes it will. The engine doesn't even turn over but it's not a battery problem because we had that checked. What could it be?


    Dear Madam or Sir,

    this is a well known problem with the immobilizer system.

    See the following official tech bulletin :

    Affected vehicles:
    All models with Bosch RB8 instrument panel up to 2002 MY.


    Problem:

    Engine starts and cuts out immediately.

    Trouble code stored: 17978 (P1570) - engine control module (ECM), immobilizer active.

    Trouble code stored: 18058 (P1650) - CAN data bus, instrumentation - no signal.


    Cause
    Immobilizer fault.
    System arms when ignition switched ON.

    Remedy:
    Access fault memory. If trouble codes present fit modified instrument panel (incorporating immobilizer control module).

    Note: Immobilizer can only be programmed using diagnostic equipment.

    How can I reset my Factory Alarm on my Jeep it wont run


    Alarm Module Reset Procedure
    NOTE: This information applies to a Vehicle Theft Security System (VTSS) that was armed when the battery was disconnected and reconnected.
    When the armed VTSS senses that the battery has been disconnected and reconnected, it enters its power-up mode. In the power-up mode the alarm system remains armed following a battery failure or disconnect. If the VTSS was armed prior to a battery disconnect or failure, the system will have to be actively or passively disarmed following a battery reconnection.
    The power-up mode will also apply if the battery goes dead while the system is armed and battery jump-starting is attempted. The engine no-run feature will prevent the engine from starting until the alarm system has been actively or passively disarmed.
    Passive disarming of the Vehicle Theft Security System (VTSS) occurs when the vehicle is unlocked using the key to unlock either front door or the lift gate. Active disarming of the VTSS occurs when the vehicle is unlocked by depressing the Unlock button of the Remote Keyless Entry (RKE) transmitter.
    Once the alarm has been activated (horn sounding, lights flashing, and the engine no-run feature), either disarming method will deactivate the alarm.
    Depressing the Panic button (if equipped) on the RKE transmitter will also disarm the VTSS, but the horn will sound and the lights will flash for about three minutes as part of the Panic feature. The horn and lights can be stopped by pressing any of the RKE transmitter's buttons or driving the vehicle above 15 mph.
