Remove the system. That would restore the factory wiring & allow you to start the vehicle.

Pls help
Expert:  Dave Nova replied 4 years ago.
The loctronics device is very basic and normally just disables the starter circuit. When you turn the key to start, does the starter engage at all?

does nothing at all and the lite wher the card goes jus blinks red
Expert:  Dave Nova replied 4 years ago.

Follow the wires from the loctronics unit back to where they are spliced into the factory wires. This may be covered with tape. Remove the tape to expose the wiring. There you will see two Black wires with white stripes. Disconnect these two wires from the loctronics wires, then join the two Black/White wires together. This should allow the car to start.

Use the schematics I posted above to assist you in finding & tracing the splices for your anti theft device. You may have to follow the wiring down to the clutch switch to find the splice. Let me know if you need more help. Sorry, I was out for a Dr's appointment.
