In some cases, it's possible to re-set the anti-theft by physically unlocking your car door with the key.
The interruption of power is a safeguard measure to ensure the car has been entered by the owner and not somehow bypassed. Using your key should reset the alarm and allow you to start the car.

99 explorer alarm disables. Motor dies


Anti-theft system can keep vehicle from starting , Alarm is for vehicle content theft , open door without key alarm sounds (horns) ! PATS - passive anti theft system PATS enables and disables the engine from starting ,it will not cause the engine to die ! You have some other kind of problem ! If the vehicle engine doesn't turn over an red light on top of dash flashes fast ,then you have anti-theft system problem !
PATS differs from the perimeter anti-theft system in that PATS enables and disables the engine from starting. If equipped, the perimeter anti-theft system protects the perimeter of the vehicle (doors, hood and trunk) and sounds an alarm.

Vehicle will not start! Replaced the battery but it will still not turn over. Oil light, battery and engine light come on when initially trying to start.


Is the security light on or flashing when trying to start the vehicle .
Anti-Theft The passive anti-theft system (PATS) consists of the following components:
  • Anti-theft indicator
  • Encoded ignition key(s) (the key contains a transponder)
  • PATS transceiver
  • Powertrain control module (PCM)
PATS will disable the vehicle from starting if there is:
  • a damaged PATS key.
  • an unprogrammed PATS key.
  • a non-encoded key (a conventional key or one that does not have any electronics).
  • damaged wiring.
  • a damaged transceiver.
  • a damaged PCM.
If it is a anti-theft system you will have to take it to the dealer .This system will keep the starter from spinning the engine .

My 2000 passat is in anti theft mode and won't start


Make sure that the battery is in a fully charged condition and reconnect, Positive post first and then the negative (This helps to avoid accidental short circuiting) Close all doors, bonnet/hood boot windows etc. Lock the vehicle with the key. Leave vehicle for at least 10 minutes without disturbing it. Unlock vehicle and start the engine. I have had to use this method on various makes of vehicle. It allows the system to reset. PLEASE NOTE the battery must be fully charged.

2002 malibu 3100 v-6 won't start, getting fuel and fire to all cylinders


if the security light is flashing than the anti theft is active. The anti theft shuts down the injectors and will not let the vehicle start.

You'll need a battery charger to do this. Hook up the battery charger to the battery.

Place the key in the igniton and attempt to start. Let the key return to the run postion and leave it there untill the light stops flashing. Turn the key off

Turn the key on (do not try to start) and wait for the light to stop flashing again.

turn the key off and then try to start the vehicle.

You can google search "resetting gm security" and find this info as well.

My theft light is flashing but my 1997 expedition wont start.The vehicle turns over but just don't start.


ANTI-THEFT SYSTEM Passive anti-theft system
Your ignition key has a unique imbedded transponder which engages engine electronics and allows the vehicle to be started. Without the use of your special ignition key, the vehicle will not start.

During each vehicle start, the coded key is read by the anti-theft system. If the key’s ID code matches the code in the anti-theft system, the vehicle is enabled to start.

Anti-theft system
Briefly illuminates when the ignition is turned to the ON position to verify that the passive anti-theft system is operating properly.

Also, its possisble that tou have actovated the fuel pump switch.

CHeck it.

No power to anything - how do I reset anti-theft system? Checked battery at Wal-mart - print out says okay low on charge. Charged battery for several hours on slow charge and then fast charge. Battery...


no... no power to anything means like the headlights are inop and such

in that case its a battery or battery cable issue

assuming you have headlights and power to accessories and the vehicle still will not start AND the theft light is flashing then YES your anti-theft system is trying to keep the car from what it thinks is a theft issue

simply pressing the unlock button on your remotes will resolve this

assuming you do not have the remotes then you will need the anti-theft computers reprogrammed at a dealer or good garage

keep us posted
