Q: Antitheft system stays off

asked by on

I need to reset the antitheft system on my truck. It turns on but it won’t stay on. Do you know what I need to do to get this to work?

Hello there, when the anti-theft system engages it can prevent the vehicle from running properly or starting at all. This can be from a variety of issues but the most common would be a security module failure or a wiring fault. A qualified Technician will be able to diagnose the anti-theft system and perform any repairs required.
