What is an anti theft key chain?

1 out of 1 people think this is helpful.

Its not the chain exactly. It acts the same as the little chips they put in the keys now

Not familiar with that. Wish I was more help....if it runs enough to get to AutoZone or any large parts house get your OBD codes read...unless you have already done that and that is what you mean by 'everything checks out fine'. Other than that, I for one am stumped. Its really difficult, as you might imagine, to diagnose there things not being at the car
