I just had this same problem with a '96 . do you have a vats key in your '94? you need to bypass the VATS system. read some of the blogs on this site and it will tell you how to do it. I fixed mine with a $2 resistor from radio shack.

SOURCE: 1997 ES 300 How to reset anti-theft system when car won't start

With the doors shut, insert the key into the drivers door lock. Lock and unlock the door 5 times. This should reset the system. If that doesn't work you should contact a qualified repair shop.

SOURCE: anti theft dash light is blinking on my 1998 rodeo

I'm assuming its an original alarm or system that came from factory or dealer. When the light blinks is because the alarm is activated. Look underneath the radio the alarm brain might be there. There will be a label on it saying alarm or security system etc. Disconnect the harness to it and try operating your vehicle.

SOURCE: How can you turn off or reset anti-theft alarm in

You cannot shut it off, If was that easy a thief could steal it.

You need to get the code and fix the problem. Most likely the problem is the key tumbler failed. If this is the case the code would say something like could not reconize key

99 explorer alarm disables. Motor dies


Anti-theft system can keep vehicle from starting , Alarm is for vehicle content theft , open door without key alarm sounds (horns) ! PATS - passive anti theft system PATS enables and disables the engine from starting ,it will not cause the engine to die ! You have some other kind of problem ! If the vehicle engine doesn't turn over an red light on top of dash flashes fast ,then you have anti-theft system problem !
PATS differs from the perimeter anti-theft system in that PATS enables and disables the engine from starting. If equipped, the perimeter anti-theft system protects the perimeter of the vehicle (doors, hood and trunk) and sounds an alarm.

My battery cable came undone and now my car wont start i know it has something to do with my anti theft system how do i reset it or whatever i just need to get my car started.


Hello Jaclyn...Look under the dash area for a button or, a toggle (valet)
switch. When you locate it, turn on the ignition key, press and hold in the button (little spring loaded micro button, red or black possibly)
until the alarm chirps 1 time. This should over ride the system, and only the keyless entry part, if installed, would still be operating....The LED light in the dash should also go on solid....At this point. the alarm would have reset.
If this had a starter kill relay installed it would now be opened, and the engine would turn over when tried.

You would repeat these steps to go back to user mode to see if this was corrected...i hope this information is helpful...Happy Holidays.

I have a 1998 Toyota Corolla. There is a little circular flashing red light on the dashboard behind the steering wheel that is flashing. Do you know what that is?


This is the immobilizer system, (anti theft) just means that your alarm is either set, or going off. if your alarm is going off, you may not be able to start your car. Hope this helps

Side marker lights keep flashing/car seems to need batt charge


You either have bad terminal connections on your battery or the anti-theft system has a system or sencor problem . I would really recomend that honda/acura check your electrical system and anti-theft system

Anti theft dash light is blinking on my 1998 rodeo and will not start now. Tried unhooking battery to reset, but no luck. Will not crank from jumping off either. Battery is good, all lights and the radio...

1998 Explorer won't start


is the anti theft light flashing, the little red light on the center of the dash ? if the answer is yes then your key has been erased from the SUV's immobilizer and has to be reprogramed or replaced with another key that is then programmed into the vehicle's immobilizer. As long as that light flashes there is no way to start the vehicle.
