Anti theft deterrent system

Asked by Feb 18, 2016 at 11:40 AM

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

My anti theft service light comes on and won't
allow my car to start. The display screen for my
radio will start flashing on and off. I was wondering
if the issue with my radio had anything to do with
the Anti theft deterrent system.
