Hi. So is your theft light flashing rapidly when you turn your key ON?

Customer: replied 11 months ago.
Expert:  EricFromCT replied 11 months ago.

Do you have another key to try? Do you have a remote starter installed?

Customer: replied 11 months ago.
I have a second but does not work and no remote starter
Expert:  EricFromCT replied 11 months ago.

Ok. The theft light flashing indicates a problem with the anti theft system. What you can try is to leave the key in the ON position, then disconnect the battery negative cable for a few minutes, then reconnect it. Sometimes that works but not often. If that doesnt work, at the very least the keys will need to try and be reprogrammed back to the car.
