The best solution I have found is to disconnect the negative battery cable for a minute to reset the computer, then use the key fob to lock and unlock the doors. This seems to reset the anti theft.

you might try unhooking battery post from battery and leaving it like that for at least 30 minutes and if that dont work. Try to start the car and when it doesnt not start leave the key in the on postion for 10 minutes and the turn the key off and then when you try to start it again but be sure that you use the clock that is in the car to count the 10 minutes with. we have to do this with my wifes old 2004 chevy malibu classic. hope it helps

Starting disabled due to anti-theft system


Almost always the key is not at fault. I know for sure heat changes the resistance of the key but it does not happen as a usual thing you would have to apply physical heat. Contact me at albmahone@yahoo.com

ANTI THEFT BYPASS RESISTER


yes method still works for my car. also a lock smith in your area can also do this for you. Its much more less expensive than replacing the ignition cylinder.
