Alright, is the anti theft light blinking if you turn the key on and leave it on? does it blink fast or does it go out? Also, do you have a 12 volt test light, you can check for power at the large cable of the starter motor when someone inside works the switch. Or lightly tap it with a hammer when someone HOLDS the key on the START position. If it cranks when you tap the starter motor. it will need a new starter motor. Let me know what happens there.
