The valet switch you have to find this in your truck press and hold should disengage the anti theft module

I have a 03 cavalier it starts up then shuts back off what causes it


Hi Missy , There are a number of thing's that can cause this . Fuel system problems , ignition system problems , the PCM - powertrain control module , the PCM is the engine computer ! There are multiple sensors on this vehicle as with all cars for the 80's on . From 1996 on they have more electronic modules then before , Anti-theft systems , air bags, anti - lock brakes etc.
Does you car have any lights light on the dash ? check engine ? Security ?. When you first turn on your key the dash lights light up an after 7 seconds the lights should go out , Do they ? You should check for DTC's - diagnostic trouble codes . That means hooking your car up to a scan tool . If it starts an shuts back off right away I would think a anti-theft system problem . If the anti-theft thinks it being stolen it disables the fuel injection in some cases !

2007 ford ranger truck don't know how to shut off antitheft device help


You most likely have a bad chip in your key. When the chip starts flaking out it will put the truck into anti theft mode as if someone else put the wrong key in it. One way that might work to reset this is to disconnect the battery for a few minutes. This will only get the anti theft to go off so you can try again. If your key causes it to activate again then you know it is the chip.

I have a 2008 ford ranger xlt 4x4 4.0 . changed the motor and the battery was disconnected . now the truck will not start cause the anti theft is locked what do i do ???


Ensure you have "ALL" the wires connected and a fully charged battery. Then use your remote to turn off the anti theft devises and your truck should start with no problems. You may have to switch the anti theft device from your old engine to your new one or take the vin of the new engine to the dealer and get the code for that engine.

A factory anti-theft system does not have a reset button.

Have you tried a different key?

2003 ford ranger theft light blinking and won't start


the anti-theft has been activated and needs to be reset.you may have to get it to a shop that has the tools to do this or go to the dealer to get it done.did you use a key that was cut as a spare and doesn`t have a chip in it.this usually can cause this.also if the wires at the switch break it can activate the anti-theft system.
