Tip & How-To about Cars & Trucks

Resetting a Vehicle Anti-Theft System
This is how you reset an anti theft system if you have the anti-theft light on, or your car is cranking, but you have no spark.

Doing a full reset of the anti-theft system.

Disconnect both battery leads for at least two hours.
Hold the negative and positive leads together for 5 minutes to fully discharge any power.
Put the key in the ignition, but not turned on. VERY IMPORTANT!
Connect the positive lead.
Connect the negative lead in one swift movement.
Wait 15 minutes for the system to fully reset.

What fuse is for the alarm on a 2001 chevy tahoe ?


What alarm ? Content theft alarm ? Think's the vehicle is being broken into ? Something other then horn going off ? This is the factory alarm .

Content Theft Deterrent (CTD) System
The Content Theft Deterrent function provides the theft deterrent by sounding the horn and flashing the headlamps and the park lamps when there is an unauthorized vehicle entry or there is tampering detected.

Where is the alarm located on an 2006equinox


What alarm ? Anti-theft ?
The theft deterrent system on this vehicle is comprised of 2 separate systems, the Vehicle Theft Deterrent (VTD) System and the Content Theft Deterrent (CTD) System. The VTD prevents drive away theft by preventing the vehicle from starting. The CTD is the vehicle alarm system which discourages unauthorized entry into the vehicle. These systems are described and diagnosed separately within this section.
SECURITY Indicator
The SECURITY indicator on the instrument panel cluster (IPC) is controlled by the body control module (BCM) through the security indicator control circuit.
?€¢
The Vehicle Theft Deterrent (VTD) System contained in the BCM commands the instrument cluster to control the SECURITY indicator only when the ignition switch is ON. The VTD System uses the telltale as a malfunction indicator.


?€¢
The Content Theft Deterrent (CTD) System also contained in the BCM commands the instrument cluster to control the indicator only when the ignition switch is OFF. The CTD System uses the SECURITY indicator to identify system status.


It's software , a program inside the BCM ! An you can't just replace the BCM , it needs programming ! The dealer is the place to have that done ,most of the time ! If there is a SECRUITY light lit on the dash ,there is a DTC - diagnostic trouble code stored in the BCM , this code will point the service technician in the diagnostic path !

Anti theft wont let me start car


The problem may not be with anti-theft but with a bad fuel pump,cam/crank sensor etc. Also, you may try unlocking the drivers door with the key. On most cars that is the standard method for disabling the security system.

1999 Infiniti 30 wont start. Disconnected battery for 20 mins. and it strated 4 times in a row. Then I set the alarm and turned alarm off and it wont start. Is this a security issue or a starter problem?


Sounds like it went into theft mode when you unhooked the battery and tried to start it multiple times. Most cars have some sort of SKIM key which is a key with a computer chip in it that is programmed to a module in the car. If this programming is lost by a battery diosconnect it usually needs to be reprogrammmed by a dealer. The reason it won't start is because the theft mode probably has the fuel or spark disabled as a theft deterrent.
