Gateway Shield Theft Deterrent system askin for pin#

Mine too. I don't remember using a pin, but I only have a few different ones I ever use and none of them work... I have to call customer service tomorrow and will hopefully get a solution. Thankfully, after a report to the better business bureau and a few nasty phone calls, I was able to get my monitor listed as being under warranty so the tech support idiots would actually talk to me. I just had everything unplugged for 2 weeks. Come back... and this theft deterrent **** is turned on somehow...

SOURCE: Monitor message says "Theft Disable

The theft deterrence system can be disabled temporarily by unplugging the monitor's power cord. Then it will start the counter again. (The default is 60 minutes and is set in the EzTune software.) The software locks the monitor to one computer (the one running the EzTune software). To disable the theft deterrent message, enter EzTune and click on the Extras tab. Then select the Theft Deterrence section and enter the PIN. The PIN can be saved online and then you can request it if forgotten: https://pinreg.portrait.com/index.php?OEM=gwy&PRODUCT=dtune&ULANG=enu .

The EzTune software is available here: http://oem.portrait.com/dtune/gwy/enu/upgrade.html .

How am i supposed to get ride off the Service theft system?


It's hard to fix something if you don't know how it works ! Fixed ignition ? What did you fix or change ?
SERVICE THEFT SYSTEM
Security: Refer to Theft Systems Description and Operation in Theft Deterrent
You need to have it checked for trouble codes .
The theft deterrent system on this vehicle is comprised of two separate systems, the vehicle theft deterrent (VTD) system and the content theft deterrent (CTD) system. The VTD system prevents drive away theft by keeping the vehicle from starting. The CTD system is the vehicle alarm system which discourages unauthorized entry into the vehicle. These systems are described and diagnosed separately within this section.
Theft System Indicators
SECURITY The instrument panel cluster (IPC) illuminates the SECURITY indicator as determined by the vehicle theft deterrent (VTD) system and the content theft deterrent (CTD) system. The IPC receives a message from the theft deterrent control module or the rear integration module (RIM) via the serial data circuit requesting illumination.
?€¢
The VTD system requests the IPC to illuminate the indicator only when the ignition switch is ON. The VTD system uses the indicator as a malfunction indicator. For specific VTD condition that will illuminate the security indicator, refer to
Vehicle Theft Deterrent (VTD) Description and Operation .


?€¢
The CTD system requests the IPC to illuminate the indicator only when the ignition switch is OFF. The CTD system uses the indicator in order to identify system status. For specific CTD condition that will illuminate the security indicator, refer to Content Theft Deterrent (CTD) Description and Operation .


?€¢
The IPC performs the displays test at the start of each ignition cycle. The indicator illuminates for approximately 3 seconds.
SERVICE THEFT SYSTEM The radio illuminates the SERVICE THEFT SYSTEM message when the VTD system detects a failure. The radio receives a message from the theft deterrent control module via the serial data circuit requesting illumination.
This is one you need to take to the dealer , unless you have a GM factory scan tool !

Changed steering column n won't atrt


Where is the ignition switch at , on the steering column ? Did you transfer the theft deterrent control module from the old column to the new one ? Do you have any lights lit on the dash , SECURITY ? Your car has a anti-theft system , the key has a transponder pellet imbedded in the head of it . Behind the plastic cover of the steering column ,around the ignition lock cylinder is the theft deterrent control module an antenna !
The vehicle theft deterrent (VTD) system functions are provided by the theft deterrent control module. The VTD system prevents vehicle operation if a valid (learned) transponder PASS-Key?®III (PK3) ignition key is not used to start the vehicle. The theft deterrent control module has an exciter that is part of the theft deterrent control module as an assembly. The PK3 key has a transponder embedded in the plastic head of the key. The exciter is an antenna which is made up of wire coils which surround the ignition lock cylinder. The PCM enables the engines starter and fuel delivery system when it receives a valid (learned) password from the theft deterrent control module via the class 2 serial data circuit. The components of the VTD system are as follows:

I need to get passed the anti theft reset to get my 2000 cad.devlle.going, just bought it, I need help to locate fuse boxes, would like to trade somebody for a sharp running truck or car straight across,...


One is under the hood in the engine compartment an Rear Fuse Block
Left rear of the passenger compartment, under the rear seat ! There are a couple of fuse's , but they power up the ignition an the PCM ,so you can't pull those ! Beside that if the PCM does not get a fuel enable signal from the anti-theft module the vehicle won't start . You can't just disable thing's on this vehicle ! If you have security light on steady or flashing you need to take it to someone who has a diagnostic scan tool that can check DTC'S - diagnostic trouble codes ! A code reader can not access these type codes !
Vehicle Theft Deterrent (VTD)Circuit Description
(VTD) Theft Deterrent System Components
Ignition Key (Transponder) The ignition key for the (VTD) theft deterrent system is a typical ignition key with a transponder pellet located in the plastic end of the key. The ignition key transponder value is used to determine if a valid ignition key is being used to start the vehicle, there are approximately three trillion different transponder values available. This vehicle has two types of ignition keys.
?€¢
Master key (black plastic end) which can start the vehicle and lock/unlock all door locks, all storage compartments and the rear compartment lid lock.


?€¢
Valet key (gray plastic end) which can start the vehicle and unlock/lock all doors, but can not unlock/lock the storage compartments, or rear compartment lid lock.

Important: The transponder values are not readable and can not be serviced separately.
Theft Deterrent Module The theft deterrent module contains the software for controlling the VTD System. The theft deterrent module uses the following inputs and outputs to control the VTD system.
Inputs ?€¢
Battery voltage from the underhood fuse block PCM/BATT fuse, circuit 240 (ORN).


?€¢
Ignition start voltage from the ignition switch, circuit 1390 (WHT).


?€¢
Ground, circuit 450 (BLK).
Outputs Password exchange with the PCM (fuel enable), class 2 message circuit 1807 (PPL).
Powertrain Control Module (PCM) The PCM verifies that the passwords received from the theft deterrent module via the class 2 serial data line are valid. If a password is invalid the PCM disables the fuel delivery system. If the password is valid the PCM enables the fuel delivery system.
Starter Relay The starter relay is controlled by the PCM module via class 2 serial data (CKT 1807 PPL). If the theft deterrent module measures the correct transponder value, the PCM module switches the starter enable control (CKT 447 YEL) to ground. The relay is energized if the ignition switch is in the START position and the gear selector is in the PARK or NEUTRAL positions.

The LCD keeps turning on and off and it give me an error Theft deferrent mode press menu but when press it turrns off againg


Im going to presume that you are not using the computer that the monitor came with.

You have two options.

1. access the utility and disable the theft deterrent by using the PIN that was entered when it was first accessed.

2. hook it up to the original computer that it was mated to and see if you can disable the "lock", but I believe you will still need the PIN.

you can find more info at the link below

Theft Deterrance system


If you ever have this problem but cannot get to the 'extras' button, leave the computer on that (hopefully) already has the eztune software installed, pull the power on the monitor (the cord, not just press the power button) and then plug it back it...it should unlock automatically. It ticks me off that I just got off the phone with gateway tech support and they wouldnt tell me that because my monitor is 'out of warranty'...purchased 4/8/08 and problem today 7/15/09...bums. Anyway, they offered to fix for a fee. I got it fixed.
