If you are using the spare key, the computer may not be reconizing it and it is going into theft mode. There is a code in the computer that will tell the tech what is going on as far as the light goes.

I have a 2003 chevy malibu that won;t start. When you turn the key to on the Theft System light comes on steady ( no flashing). I t used o go into this mode periodically where the Theft System light...


I have had the same problem. This has happened to me three times in the past nine months or so. Per the owner's manual, you turn the key to the on position and wait about ten minutes. This resets the system and when the "Theft System" light goes out, it starts right up. I did this each time and it started right up.

Replaced the fuel pump. the car starts, but won't stay running


The anti-theft system will keep the car from being driven, so I would start there. You may need to reset the anti-theft or check the ignition key for problems.

Lincoln Towncar won't start


When the theft light blinks fast when trying to start the car, check if this occurs; if yes, then the car is in theft mode. I do strongly believe the next step is to program the keys. If the PCM was bad, the light would be steady when trying to start which indicates the PATS system is working correctly.

Can you bypass theft system


No, I think he has the same problem I do. I have a stock 99 malibu...no real theft system. Usually after it rains or gets cold, a "theft system" light comes on in my dash. I can be driving, and the light will come on. If I turn the car off, I cannot restart the vehicle till about 20 minutes have passed and the light finally goes off. Sometimes this light comes on when I try to start the car in the morning. I put the key in the ignition, and the car will not start for 20 minutes till the darn theft system light goes off. From what I gathered, the theft system issue has something to do with a "passlock II" defect. I have no idea what this is, all I know is that I can't get a mechanic to listen to me, because the issue never repeats itself when I go to a garage. It gets a little annoying, but I've learned to deal with it.
