Bad ignition lock cylinder and ignition switch has short


Asked by Aug 05, 2016 at 11:42 PM about the 2001 Chevrolet Cavalier LS

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I have used all the tips and tricks to get
around the theft system, it was working fine
long wait times sometimes but worked
eventually. Earlier today was fine and now
the light continues to flash and won't go
solid. Car turns over starts but does right
away leave followed same thing I had been
doing and tried all others no go. So been
stuck in parking lot for hours nothing will
reset the theft system. What can I do,
because I can't afford to fix it.
