and is the anti-theft light blinking?

Ask Your Own Pontiac Question
Customer reply replied 1 month ago
it was but now it is out
Pontiac Mechanic: david craig, ASE Certified Technician replied 1 month ago

it should always blink when the key is out of the ignition and the doors are shut. that's a theft deterrent to passersby to let them know the security is armed.
