Theft device shut down the system and now it will not start…

Customer Question
Theft device shut down...

Theft device shut down the system and now it will not start 1999 Isuzu rodeo

Mechanic's Assistant: Have you checked the battery, particularly the terminal connections? Are they corroded?

They are fine

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your Rodeo yourself? What have you tried so far?

Check fuses, battery but before this happened the light on the dash was flashing and I have had other issues with the alarm. The theft device is all I cannot diagnose.

Mechanic's Assistant: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?

Where is the alarm and how can I easily disable it. I think it is factory.
