First of all is the anti theft factory or aftermarket? if it is factory then try locking the car from the trunk and then unlocking it then do the same from the driver side door.

yes you are correct the learn procedure is done by a dei 555L or a 555G bypass module.your car should have one or the other installed on it. simply unplug it,it will be a three wire plug. then plug it back in and then by turning the ignition on and off it will relearn the code.

SOURCE: Can I reset my anti theft device by using one key

Yeah, put the first key in and let the anti-theft light go completly out (about ten secs), take that key out and do the same with the second key. Take it out and start it with the first key. Maybe this will trick the system , hope this helps.

'98 Oldsmobie Intrigue how do I permanently disable the security system?


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, or not seen at all. When the communication breaks, the car misinterprets this as an attempt at theft and goes into antitheft mode. (like it thinks it's being hot wired) The car shuts down because it is not getting that signal from YOUR specific key. This is why the security light turns on and shuts down your vehicle. It will either turn off the starter, or the fuel injectors. The vehicle may run for 2-3 seconds before shutting down. This link explains it pretty well.

How do I reset the ProLock system?


Hi Carol , do you mean PATS passive antitheft system ? Locked up your car ,do you mean it won't crank over an start ?
The passive anti-theft system uses radio frequency identification technology to deter a driveaway theft. Passive means that it does not require any activity from the user.
  • During each vehicle start sequence, the ignition key identification code is requested by the vehicle protection anti-theft electronics.
  • If the key's ID code has been programmed into the system, the powertrain control module (PCM) (12A650) is signaled to enable the vehicle to start.
  • If the key's ID code is not programmed into the system, or if no encoded key is detected, then the powertrain control module is signaled to disable the vehicle.
The passive anti-theft system communicates the state of the security system to the powertrain control module via the J-1850 communications network data link connector (DLC). The powertrain control modulebased on the communications from the passive anti-theft system, will determine if the vehicle's engine is enabled to start. The passive anti-theft system differs from the active anti-theft alarm system in that the passive anti-theft system enables/disables the vehicle from starting and only operates with the ignition switch in RUN/START position. The active anti-theft alarm system has perimeter protection capabilities and operates only with the ignition switch OFF. Refer to Section 13-11A for active anti-theft alarm system information.
Vehicle Disabling The passive anti-theft system will be activated and disable the vehicle from starting if any of the following conditions exist:
  • damaged encoded key
  • unprogrammed key
  • non-encoded key (key has no electronics)
  • wiring concern
  • transceiver concern
  • Passive Anti-Theft System (PATS) control module concern
  • J-1850 Communications Network concern
  • Powertrain Control Module (PCM)

Lexus sc 400 anti thieif could this be why my car don't start


Yes, car will not start or will start and run for about 20 seconds and shut off if the anti theft system is active. The theft system will either disable the starter circuit, cut the fuel injector circuit or both. Sometimes you can lock the doors with either the key fob or electric door locks, then open manually with a key and then lock with key fob, wait 30 seconds and unlock with key fob or key. Occasionally that will reset the system, or turn on ignition 3 times for 10 seconds each without starting the car, (turn key to where dash warning lights illuminate, but not to the start position), wait 30 seconds then start the car, for the ECM to relearn the key code. If that doesn't work, most likely will have to be reset at a dealership. Good luck!

My 1995 chrysler concorde acts like its out of gas can it be the theft system?


Anti theft and security systems will disable the vehicle from starting; you turn the key to start and nothing happens. The engine does not turn over. f it's an out- of - fuel symptom and the car engine turns over, it's not the anti theft system. In that case it could be any of a number of ignition or fuel delivery problems.

89 firebird anti theft code won't let car start


If code 53 involves the PASS system for your car, the chip in the key has failed, or the sensor in the lock cylinder, or the control module.
The anti-theft system disables the starter and the fuel injectors. You could bypass those circuits to get the car started.

Anti theft light comes on the car won't start


Your "inmobiliser" system is actived.

The anti-theft feature prevents the car from being started when one of several anti-theft devices is faulty are have otherwise been activated. The problem you descibe might be the ignition swith, which is known to wear out quickly on those models. The system can be completly disabled only when the car is running (meaning the teft deterent system is inactive after the Passlock II system detects the proper key in the ingition). A wire can be cut that would perminantly disable Passlock II, meaning any key that opens the door (or a screwdriver) could start the car. If the ignition swtich goes out or this wire is cut while the engine is off (theft deterent system is active) then the car will have to be towed back to the dealer to have the ignition system replaced and reprogrammed.

I have called Chevy and asked how to fix this problem. If you turn the key to the on position, right before it cranks when the lights and radio turn on. Leave it there for ten minutes until the anti theft light turns off. Then turn the key to the off position and then try starting the car.

Rumour has it that it is a yellow wire to be cut. Do more research, but D O N ' T cut it with the engine off. See first paragraph above.

Hope this help (remember rated and comment this). Good luck.

Starter disabled due to theft system


the wire that goes to the ignition to the anti theft device is probably broken if you call a good locksmith they can go in through the steering column and fix it same thing happened to my 95 eldorado apparently cadillac designed the anti theft system to coincide with the ignition and is connected to the ignition with two wires that turn as the key is turned the wires twist and eventually they wear out
