SOURCE: 1996 Camaro RS suddenly wont start - anti theft problem?

You can start it by putting into program mode...try to start, then turn it to off..,,then turn it to on (not start)..leave it on for 15 min...turn it to off for 2 min..and start..

This will reset the signal from the bcm to the pcm of the car.

you most like ly have a problem in the start switch key reader...It has to be replaced as a unit

Or it could be your bcm or pcm...very very expensive... try this first... If it does not work off to the dealership..don't even try to give this to a garage to fix. Gm has the software to reflash your computer.

SOURCE: 1997 ES 300 How to reset anti-theft system when car won't start

With the doors shut, insert the key into the drivers door lock. Lock and unlock the door 5 times. This should reset the system. If that doesn't work you should contact a qualified repair shop.

SOURCE: Theft light keeps flashing and the car won't start

The theft light will only blink rapidly while cranking if the immobilizer inside the ignition switch isn't reading the CHIP inside the key. the immobilizer is part of the factory antitheft system. they don't normally go bad, but the key could have lost its programming. or if you had a copy made with just a metal key without the chip in it. the dealership can reprogram it for you if that is the problem.

Anti theft reset in my mucury sabel 20010


Hi Melissa , why do you want to do a reset ? Vehicle not cranking over - engine not turning over ? When you try to start it is the red light on top of the dash flashing faster then with key off ? When key off a flash will happen every 2 seconds ! When trying to start it flashes very fast. If having a anti-theft problem the starter will not engage !

Anti theft light won't go out


There are 2 things to try:
1) Use your key to manually unlock the driver's side door - sometimes this alone is enough to reset your security system.
2) Put your key in the ignition and turn to ON position (do not try to start the car, just turn to ON)- after 30 seconds, attempt to start the car and see if the security light goes out.

I have a 2001 mercury sable and the anti theft is on and I can't start my car. will disconnecting the battery reset it?


Yes, keep it disconnected for at least 10 minutes. Also make sure your Battery is good. Sometimes the Anti-theft is sensitive to Battery voltage and will not connect the internal parts to allow a start.

If you have a Keypad, enter the Security Code on the Keypad and turn the Ignition Key within 5 to 10 seconds to start it.

It is probably not the anti theft system if it cranks over fast then slow it is your timing chain. If you want to try resetting the anti theft system disconnect the battery cables for 24 hours and reconnect them.
