I have a starting to disable due to theft system message when I try to start my car, how do I fix this

Asked by Jan 03, 2015 at 08:27 PM about the 2008 Pontiac Grand Prix Base

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

My husband had to replace the heating coil and took out the entire inside of the car to get
to it.  When he put the car back together and when to start the car we ended up with the
message that we could not start the car.  It also said to service the theft system.  Can
anybody help with us spend the least amount of money to get this car working and not to
have this issue again.  The car was working fine before this happened.

I hope he disconnected the negative (-) battery cable before starting the repair. But if not, first thing to do is check the fuses. There's a good chance that one blew during the repair. Also, check the wiring near the steering column. Be sure that everything is plugged in securely and correctly. HTH. -Jim
