i cant start my truck. the relays click, and the engine turns. but then i can put the key in position 3 ( i think), press the brake, and the door locks jump up and down and i've seen the battery light come on with the anti-theft light.

Hello, when you try and jump start the vehicle the theft light is flashing fast?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Hi James, the theft light does not blink fast when cranking. when the key is turned to accesory it does blink fast.

If your hearing a lot of clicking this is usually a bad connection somewhere. It could be a bad power wire to the fuse panel or a bad chassis ground. Do you have a multi meter to test for voltage at certain places?
