i have a 2001 Saturn sl1 and the anti theft system shut down the car. to reset the antitheft system try to start the car. leaving the key in the on possition disconnect the positive battery terminal (red terminal). wait for about ten minutes, with the key still in the on position this whole time, reconnect the terminal on the battery. then get in the car and turn the key to start. this fixed my problem and hopefully it will help you as well.

Somehow you set off the antitheft system. In order to reset it you have to unlock the drivers door with the key.

Place the key into the ignition. Turn the key to the auxiliary position, without starting the engine. Keep the key in the auxiliary position for 30 seconds. This should reset your antitheft system.

In many cars disconnecting the battery from the car and then reconnecting it after a lengthy period of time 20+ minutes will in many cases reset the computer in the car. However some things in the computer are hard coded so even removing the battery will not reset them. Car service / dealers can usually reset most bits of the car as they have specialist software and computers that they can plug into the car.

It depends on what you trying to do. If disconnect battery and reconnect it the immobilizer activates automatically. So you will not be able to start the car with key with chip.

unplug the battery for about half an hour and that will reset the car.

The lock through cars symbol is a indication the antitheft system has disabled the vehicle. The problem could also be a computer malfunction.

You do not have to reset the computer. The ECU will take care of itself and there is nothing you have to do but drive the car.

Disconnect the battery for a few moments. When it is reconnected, the computer should have reset. if this method is not successful then the car will need to be taken to an authorized dealer to be reset.

The easiest way to reset your car alarm system is to remove the car alarm system fuse. You can also remove the positive cable from the battery. In both cases return the component to its original position after 10 seconds.

No such thing. If you reset the computer, the emissions testers will see that you've done a reset and that's an automatic fail

With a scan tool or by unhooking the battery.
