This same thought is what caused me to disable the anti-theft system. My car is eight years old and I started thinking all it would take is a dead remote battery to leave me stranded. To disable the anti-theft in my 1997 Sunfire, I plugged the valet switch/button into the slot under the dash. After using my remote to turn it off and start the car, I pushed the button on the valet switch and left it that way. Now it starts without the remote. If anyone wants to steal an eight year-old banged-up Sunfire, it's their loss. Ha ha ha...

Sometimes the anti-theft has a time limit, so let the car sit for 30 minutes and it should reset. If that does not work, disconnect the battery for that long and it will reset.รŠ

There should be a six digit code inside the glove box or if the antitheft is removeable it could be behind it.

Put your Chevy Cavalier in neutral and then crank it once without starting the car. This will turn on the electrical system and you need to allow it to sit like that for several minutes for everything to reset itself.

There is nothing to reset except the radio presets and the clock unless it has an antitheft radio. In that case you must insert the code for the radio.

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.

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.
