Q: Need to permanently disable the anti-theft kit

asked by on

I just replaced my battery and now the anti-theft kit is going off and there is something broke off in the passenger side key hole so i can't bypass the anti-theft that way and i tried doing it on the drivers side door but still no luck what do i do
My car has an automatic transmission.

The only way to disable the system is by unlocking the doors or using a factory remote. If the door does not work, then it may have a bad switch on the key lock that needs replaced.
