I haven't seen the theft light blinking, but everything shuts off as soon as I turn the key into start position. At first the malfunction was off and on now it's all the time.

I at first a few weeks ago it would happen once in awhile and now it seems locked
Car Electronics Technician: Don - Mo Lurch, Car Electronics Technician replied 10 months ago

IF this is Factory Alarm:
DISARM should be from Remote, or UNLOCK Driver or Passenger Door, or Trun Ignition ON with Key
Otherwise:

Be sure the Battery is FULLY Charged
IF not sure, connect Jumper or Charger
.
Locate the DARK GREEN / PURPLE (-) wire behind the Driver Kick Panel.
It is in the Harness that goes into the Driver Door
Ground the DARK GREEN / PURPLE (-) wire by connecting one end of a piece of wire to the DARK GREEN / PURPLE (-) wire
Connect the other end of the piece of wire to Ground - Frame / Body
This should DISARM the Factory Alarm

Let me know hwat you find

Please reread my Answer, as I posted "how to shut off the Factory Alarm"

Be sure the Battery is FULLY Charged
IF not sure, connect Jumper or Charger
.
Locate the DARK GREEN / PURPLE (-) wire behind the Driver Kick Panel.
It is in the Harness that goes into the Driver Door
Ground the DARK GREEN / PURPLE (-) wire by connecting one end of a piece of wire to the DARK GREEN / PURPLE (-) wire
