how to reset the anti theft system in a 2001 chevy cavalier

Hello and thank you for using Just Answer

 

you need to relearn the passlock cylinder to the theft computer

 

crank the key for 2 seconds then leave the key on for 12 minutes

 

the theft light should go out

 

then turn the key to off and attempt to start

 

if it does not start leave the key on for another 12 mins and you may have to do this a total of 3 times to relearn the passlock cylinder

 

let me know how you make out and if you need more help

 

thanks

 

Paul
