easiest thing to do is disable the anti-theft. typical alarms use a relay to interrupt the starter circuit. however the factory systems are smarter then that and allow the starter to engage but cuts the fuel system. but the anti-theft is still an expansion or stand-alone unit, meaning there should be a fuse/relay or another way to disable the system. i would get the wiring diagram of the system and pull it the whole thing completely. hope this is helpful.

Cavalier's are worthless cars to begin with. There is a fuse in the panel for the anti-theft (if the car came with it from factory) However if the anti-theft is an aftermarket add on then the fuse will be on the main harness of the controller itself (if it wasn't cut out by some idiot). Me I would pin point the problem down to what is happening to prevent the car from starting (i.e. wont crank, wont stay running for longer then 3 seconds) Most (if not all) aftermarket security systems use a starter cut-out relay to disable the starter in the event of attempted theft. The factory most often uses a fuel cut- out or an ignition (spark) cut-out which disables the car to run after an allotted time frame. On a GM vehicle the best think to do (and do it right) is to get a Tech-II (GM's dealer scan tool) and find the source of the problem before more damage is caused to the vehicles electrical system.
