Hi, I'm Chad. Welcome to JustAnswer. I'm reviewing your question and I will be posting your reply ASAP.

Hey how are you

if the locks are malfunctioning it will trigger the anti theft on, the switch is built in the door lock actuator ,

now if the battery drain or went below 10 volts could have triggered ,lets try resetting for now and go from there in cases was a glitch if all was working before starter replacement

Master reset Procedure

1- Disconnect Battery Cables ( Negative & Positive Cables )you can use any electrical wire as an extension if battery cables don't reach .

2- Hold cables Together for 60 secs ,then let go

3- Wait 30 minutes

4- Make sure all doors are closed

5- Reconnect battery Cables

6- Lock & unlock the vehicles using the key from driver door side (if you have a key fob with no blade key, just lock & unlock using the key fob buttons)

7- Enter the vehicle and attempt to start

Please let me know

Thank You

No joy. Hooked battery up and anti-theft weakly attempting to sound horn. Locked and unlocked, attempted to start. No click, nada. Turned on lights... alarm stops. Lights weak and slowly pulse.

I unhooked it, held the battery cables together for 60 seconds, waited a half-hour, made sure the doors were shut before hooking the battery back up.
With a voltmeter , on the battery check ,with igntion switch in the On and in the start postion ,are you reading 12 volts and holding , this weak light you mentioned
We need to check battery ,battery cables , then check all your fuses ,
Let me know wha the battery reads ?
Customer: replied 1 month ago.
Battery is 12.98v. There is corrosion visible in the cable from positive to the solenoid. Multimeter on positive and solenoid nut reads 0.0v. We're going to replace cable next. Fuses all look okay.
