The anti theft is working! try manually locking your doors,then wait 15 minutes,unlock the doors with key, the last door you should lock is drivers. lock all doors from inside but drivers, when you shut drivers door,lock it from outside with the key.leave it alone for about 15 minutes please! when you unlock it with the key, if the alarm goes off, disconnect the battery for 10mins. then start over,just remember to lock the driverside door from outside this time with the key!!!

Stalling and not restarting when warm, crank sensors were changed and it made no difference


You might try and remove the anti theft system. If that doesn't work try to disconnect the battery until the system resets itself. BTW howdoes it run? Is it in good shape otherewise?

The security, antitheft, or passlock light is a visual indication that something in the car's antitheft system is failing. In most GM cars and trucks there is a hidden system that most people are unaware even exists. From the moment you put your key in the ignition, there begins a constant line of communication between your key's security chip or transponder, to the ignition's lock cylinder, and then to the car's TDM (Theft Deterrent Module). These 3 parts are in CONSTANT communication. If the key is in the ignition, then these parts are sending signals to each other. The security light illuminates when that signal gets broken, even just for a second. When the signal breaks, the car misinterperates this as an attempt at theft and goes into antitheft mode. The car thinks its being stolen or hotwired because it is not getting that signal from YOUR specific key. This is why the security light turns on and shuts down your vehicle.
This link may help you find ways to bypass this or fix it yourself.

It can be as simply as a bad battery. The Antitheft system views a low battery as an attempted theft action. Then the Antitheft cuts cranking voltage to around 7 Volts to prevent the engine from starting.

Battery voltage drops in cold weather. This would explain your problem and the activation of the Antitheft light.

Please rate my info. You might try adding a battery charger for a few minutes before you try starting it and see what effects it has.

Another idea is to turn off the A/C when cranking. The A/C clutch is a big drag on the system AND is temperature controlled to disengage the clutch at lower outside temperatures. If this control is not working, the A/C would not disengage.

You can get the starter tested on the vehicle with a DRAW test. The battery can be tested too. FREE at most big parts stores like Autozone.

Truck will not start


Hi there:
You will have to pinpoint what the engine is missing...
- Spark
- Fuel
- Compression

All three of these are tested when the engine is being cranked over. There are two way of checking for fuel. Fuel pressure and fuel trigger. Both are very important and must be present for the engine to start. Fuel pressure is self explanatory. You just hook up the gage and see what the reading is. Fuel trigger is check with a noid light. The injector gets unplugged and the noid light gets plugged in to the injector clip. With the engine cranking over, this light must blink. This is the signal to the injectors from the computer. You can have all the fuel pressure in the world, but it wont matter if the injector is not pulsing gas into the cylinder like it should.

Compression tester, spark tester, fuel pressure gage and noid light are all accessible at your local auto store. All three tests play a very important part in diagnosing a no start condition. Be extremely careful when doing these tests.

Hope this helps; also keep in mind that your feedback is important and I`ll appreciate your time and consideration if you leave some testimonial comment about this answer.

Thank you for using FixYa, have a nice day.

These cars and many many many other gm cars and trucks are equipped which an antitheft feature. Many times on engines swaps and ignition changes, this system gets interrupted because the computer is not seeing the proper signal from the original equipment. Try to start the car, when it doesn't turn over, leave the key in the "on" position. Look for a light near your gauges that says "security" or "antitheft". If you see this indicator light, then the problem is definitely the antitheft system. Fixing it is rather expensive. Bypassing it is relatively cheap. This link explains everything you need to know.

Looking for emergency shut off switch for 02 sunfire


This could very possibly be the antitheft system failing. Gm has had issues with this system since the 80's. When the system fails, the car will crank but not start. Might run for a second or more and then die. If these symptoms sound similar to yours, the antitheft might be the issue. Also look for a light on the dash that says SECURITY or ANTITHEFT. This is a telltale sign of an antitheft failure. This link explains the problem and solutions to fix this yourself.
