Question type: Maintenance & Repair

What would continuously keep setting off
my PAT anti-theft system and what if any is
the fix??? It seems to reset itself after 3
days and will start but only run for a few min
and shut down again.

1 Answer


Many things could be causing this, door switches, wiring problems, programming error even a failed chip in the key, unfortunately diagnosing and repairing these system needs to be done by a professional with the proper equipment and that translates into expensive. Sometimes a dealer is your best and only choice when it comes to factory alarm systems. HTH
