Customer Question
Wife has a 1996...

Wife has a 1996 Saturn. The house got robbed last know and the crooks did not know what they were doing I had to recharge the battery and now the car will not start. I think it is the anti theft device, but I do not know how to reset it.

Mechanic's Assistant: Thanks. Can you give me any more details about your issue?

The lights come on and the radi works but II do not get anything when I turn the key
