yes it clicks but can't jump it; all fuses and relays were checked with volt meter and check out fine

I think my anti theft system has locked up on the car. The theft light will not stop blinking and looking through the owner's manual it appears this will cause a no start situation. Any ideas on resetting this?

a good friend and mechanic worked on the car today and wound up jumping the starter and the car is now running-what could this mean?
