Anti theft system activated, how do I get my car started?
Anti theft system activated, how do I get my car started? We went in shopping and came out and no start! Theft light is blinking every 2-3 seconds and I can not even get the key to turn! Help!!!
try unhooking battery for a few minutes,see if this helps,or pull ECM fuse in fuse box for a minute or two,hope this helps.
also make sure shifter is always in park.
Where is ecm fuse
i was wounderingn if you got it fixed and if so what exactly did u do because my grandfather just bought a car and is having the same problem
Generally factory anti theft can be disarmed by moving the key from off to acc (just before starting, turns power on) and back 3-6 times with a good key. If the key has a chip in it that has lost programming you may not be able to without having it towed to a dealer for reprogramming, but it's uncommon. If the key will not turn, it is not the correct key or has worn too much and a new one will need to be cut at a dealership the factory security will generally only cut fuel.
