If the engine starts and runs, it is not the PATS holding things up. PATS is only prior to starting the engine, with the start enable parameter from the cluster. Once this is past, it is not longer involved in the process ( you can use a remote start with a correctly configured PATS bypass module, with a normal straight key to turn the truck to the on position.

Do you have an after market VSS installed ?

My 2007 gmc envoy shut off while riding down the road I have taken it 2 places and have heard everything from my anti-theft to a seized engine. Help

Is the anti-theft light lit ? If not , not anti-theft problem . Find the crank relay in the under hood fuse / relay box . Pull the relay out of it's socket an look on the bottom of the relay , you will see four sets of numbers > 30 & 87 , 85 & 86 . Where it plugs into the fuse box Jump 30 to 87 , if engine spins it's not seized up . If it shut off how did you take it to 2 places ? Did you take it to the dealer ? Did either place check DTC'S - diagnostic trouble codes ?

06 trailblazer trouble with anti theft system, I think, starts right up then other times the anti theft light comes on and it won't start. can try it 2-4 hours later and it starts right up????

The first thing to do get it checked for DTC'S - diagnostic trouble codes . Not at auto zone or any other parts store , you want to have full scan of all the modules on the car. Don't know how much you know about automotive electronics , computer controlled systems etc.... Your vehicle has at least 10 modules (computers ) on board , there all talk to each other on a serial data network . C.A.N - controller area network . Or in the case of GM it has it's own . GMLAN -
How to Diagnose Controller Area Network CAN When you turn that ignition switch to start it is an input to the computer ,be it the PCM or BCM ..

May or maynot crank. Anti-theft light blinking really fast. May take ~10mins or more before it cranks. Correct key in ignition. Ford F150 2001 truck.

Do you have another key to try ?
The flashing theft light during the crank is indicating the key is not programmed to the truck.
When you get the no crank no start, do the cluster pass the power on tests OK ? ( i.e. all the indicators light up, and then go out, oil would still be on with the key in the run position with the engine off ).

Turn ignition key and motor starts up, next day turn ignition key and motor just turns over and wont start. could it be anti theft problem its a 2002 f150 4 wheel drive with 4.6 liter

This could be caused by either a faulty Crank Shaft Position Sensor or the anti-theft system. Try put key in, turn to ON position for EXACTLY 10 minutes, As SOON as anti-theft light shuts off or stops flashing, then IMMEDIATELY start the engine.

A month ago my antitheft light started blinking fast and my card shut shut down now it wont start and the theft light is still on..

You have have the orignal master key the car came with or have a new key programmed by your dealer.(some small shops have tools for this too).The key has a chip in it that the computer looks at (a code) that lets it start if it's right.if it gets damaged,or a non-chip key is inserted,the vehicle won't start and the anti theft light blinks.
