    If you look on line Google that problem you'll see you can deactivate it behind the radio by cutting the yellow wire the theft light will stay on but it will start. It happens to me but it's the key is old so the theft system will go on and I have to wait ten mins and try again and most of the time it will start each time the light comes on it takes ten mins for it to turn off and you can try it again. That's all the info I can give hope it helps.
