Is it inoperable right now?

Remove the key and shut the doors, is the theft light blinking slow?

With the key in the ignition and the ley turned 2 positions forward does the theft light go solid and then go out or does it flash rapidly?

so are you telling me that if it goes out it will start if it flashes rapidly it will not start give me the scenerio to expect when one or the other happens

Expert:  Chris (aka- Moose) replied 8 years ago.

If the light goes out while the key is in the run position after the momentarly solid lite indication then the PATS system see a correct key and should allow starting. If it blinks rapid then it sees the key as bad. Meaning the keys are faulty or the systems antennea on the ignition is not picking up the key.

If the car still will not start and no rapid blinking light then the concern is elsewhere in the starting circuit like the trans TR sensor or the starter relay or the ignition lock cylinder or ignition switch or the starter.
