Asked by Sep 22, 2017 at 05:46 PM about the 2000 Chevrolet Cavalier

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

the theft system light on the dashboard is
blinking & my car won't start. It was running
fine & starting right up all day. Does anyone
know what I need to do? I tired
disconnecting the battery & it didn't work. I
also tried starting it while in neutral that
didn't work either. Can someone please help
me out.

What works on mine, that I found on the internet, is to leave the key in the position one short of the position it reaches to actually try and start the car for 10 minutes. At that point the anti theft will stop blinking, and thr car can be started. I now use one key for the ignition, lock the car,go do something else for 10 minutes, and use a second key to get back into the car.
