Welcome, I'm Chris (aka Moose), my normal schedule online is around lunch and after dinner till early morning.

Is there an aftermarket alarm on the vehicle?

You try to start the vehicle, it will not crank, then you do what with the locks?

If the theft light is flashing when trying to start and it fails then yes it is related to the PATS system.

Hello again Chris here,

  1. I have to assume you were not pleased with my help, because you have not replied or rated the post.
  2. What would you like to do regarding your question now?
  3. Do you still need help? Please reply I want you to get equal to or more than what you paid for.
  4. This post is coming up on the 7 day mark where it times out. That can prevent me from being able to post answers to your replies.

Thanks Chris
