Question about 2005 Volkswagen Passat

1 Answer

After parking my car, it will not start or do anything. I believe some security or anti theft device may be the problem. I have tried charging the battery, but that did not help.The dash lites/gagues do not come on...only the stereo system in the start position.

02 RANGER TURN KEY NOTHING


CHECK FOR LOOSE OR CORRODED CONNECTIONS TO THE BATTERY. TURN ON HEADLIGHTS OR BLOW THE HORN TO CHECK FOR BATTERY CHARGE. USE A VOLT METER TO SEE IF YOU HAVE 12 VOLTS AT THE BATTERY. ARE YOU IN PARK. THE NEUTRAL SAFETY SWITCH MAY CAUSE SUCH A CONDITION.

2003 Saturn Vue with a identity anti theft system. Replaced my battery a few months ago. Couple weeks ago noticed a little difficulty starting up. Last week wouldn't start just clicking noise. Jumped...


Anti-theft system has nothing to do with it . Battery cables , maybe , Park neutral safety switch possibly ! With anti-theft system problem you wouldn't a click or anything , that is if the anti-theft disables fuel or the starter . Plus the SECURITY light would be on if it were a anti-theft system problem . Your best bet , take it to a qualified repair shop that knows how to do starter circuit testing >

How to voltage drop test starter motor circuit

And what's this identity anti theft system ? No such thing ! The vehicle has a content theft an vehicle theft deterrent system !
This system disables fuel not cranking of the engine. The VCM/PCM will not disable the fuel due to any BCM message for the remainder of the ignition cycle.
If the VCM/PCM does not receive the same password from the BCM as the last learned one, the vehicle will start and then stalls due to the Fuel Lockout.

1993 Buick Park Avenue we had a dead battery so we removed and charged it. Now the Car won't start and when I put key in the ignition the security light starts flashing


Any car with a Factory Anti-Theft System does this whenever battery power is lost. If your owners manual doesn't address this, you will have to contact a GM Dealer to get the system reset. Sorry!

1994 park avenue will not start anti security won't go off


Hi, those can be particularly nasty to diagnose. I had a 96 park avenue-same thing after I hit a deer. OK, some info please. Did you hit anything? Replace a starter or battery? Have a new key made or have very old keys? Replace an ignition lock cylinder or have a problem turning key? Those things can trigger the passlock anti-theft system. Seems your car is in lock-down mode. (It thinks its being stolen.)
Please reply, we'll try and find a solution. Thanks, Mike

I am having the same issue with my anti-theft device in my 2003 Alero. Last year it stopped running and would not turn-over. $400 later, Brakemax said they just had to reset the anti-theft device. oK,...


the shop that told you they ripped it out only ripped you off unless they removed some aftermarket alarm system i,m a gm mechanic and if you remove the factory anti-theft on a 2003 olds alero it will not run ever again until re-installed make sure your battery is charged good turn igntion switch to run position but do not try to start security light should be flashing let car sit with switch on and light flashing for ten minutes light should stop flashing now start your car this is how to reset anti-theft was that worth $400.00 and again why let a bussiness named brakemax look at a no start condition keep on and you will be BROKE to the max HOPE THIS HELPS AND STAY AWAY FROM THEM YOUR FRIEND @ HELPMAX

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

Anti- theft relay


The fuse or switch would be up under the dash panel on drivers side. Or follow your horn wiring and it will lead you to security system main control box.

Could be a bad switch for the transmission selector. I believe they should only start in park.
