Yes. I think I tripped the anti theft system. It is the factory installed unit. Please respond by the morning because I am having my car towed.This happened once before and I was able to reset it by doing some steps like topening the drives side door ,... however I don't remember was else I did to override the system

Thanks, ***** ***** reset the option shown in the repair guides are to remove the battery cables and hold them together for 1 minute. Then reconnect and lock unlock the door with the remote and then again with the key. Then try to start the vehicle. If that too fails then make sure the battery voltage is good and try your spare key. If that too fails then you have either a theft system component that has failed or reprogramming of the keys to the vehicle is needed. -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------On your screen at the top you should see a rating 1-5 stars and a green submit button.
