How do I reset the ProLock system?


Hi Carol , do you mean PATS passive antitheft system ? Locked up your car ,do you mean it won't crank over an start ?
The passive anti-theft system uses radio frequency identification technology to deter a driveaway theft. Passive means that it does not require any activity from the user.
  • During each vehicle start sequence, the ignition key identification code is requested by the vehicle protection anti-theft electronics.
  • If the key's ID code has been programmed into the system, the powertrain control module (PCM) (12A650) is signaled to enable the vehicle to start.
  • If the key's ID code is not programmed into the system, or if no encoded key is detected, then the powertrain control module is signaled to disable the vehicle.
The passive anti-theft system communicates the state of the security system to the powertrain control module via the J-1850 communications network data link connector (DLC). The powertrain control modulebased on the communications from the passive anti-theft system, will determine if the vehicle's engine is enabled to start. The passive anti-theft system differs from the active anti-theft alarm system in that the passive anti-theft system enables/disables the vehicle from starting and only operates with the ignition switch in RUN/START position. The active anti-theft alarm system has perimeter protection capabilities and operates only with the ignition switch OFF. Refer to Section 13-11A for active anti-theft alarm system information.
Vehicle Disabling The passive anti-theft system will be activated and disable the vehicle from starting if any of the following conditions exist:
  • damaged encoded key
  • unprogrammed key
  • non-encoded key (key has no electronics)
  • wiring concern
  • transceiver concern
  • Passive Anti-Theft System (PATS) control module concern
  • J-1850 Communications Network concern
  • Powertrain Control Module (PCM)

My car won't start, have had no problems it was running fine, pulled into the driveway shut it off, then an hour later it would not start. My anti theft light flashes excessively fast when I put the...


Absolutely! If the Passive Anti-Theft System (PATS) "thinks" you are trying to steal the car, it is SUPPOSED to keep it from starting. The problem is that the PATS thinks you are a car theif when you are not.
Below is a table straight out of the service manual for your vehicle. Please note that the FIRST action that must be taken for any PATS system malfunction is to scan the computer system for fault codes.

I replaced the battery in a 06 impala ls but now it says service theft deterrent system how do i clear that message


Check your owners manual for a way to turn the anti theft sytem off. I have a car that when i take the terminals off or the battery dies, the theft system is active and the parking lights flash. There might be a small button somewhere under the dash you must hold for a certain amount of time and then turn the key. If you have your owners manual, it'll be in there.

I have a 2002 chevy 2500 hd and the security light is on


If the owners manual doesn't tell you the procedures to deactivate the anti-theft module, you might have to call the GM dealership and ask the service department how to deactivate the anti-theft module. I think it's key "ON" key "OFF" key "ON" key "OFF" key "ON" and then wait for 20 minutes then try to start the engine. Good luck, Gary

When I get inside and try to start the car it won't start and the theft light on the dashbord just keeps blinking.


I don't know what type vehicle you have but it sounds like you theft deterent module is activated. Look in your owners manual and it should tell you the procedures for deactivating the theft deterent module. Last one I deactavated was a 2001 GMC, key "ON" key "OFF" key "ON" key "OFF" key "ON" and let sit for 20 minutes, then try to start the engine. Good luck, Gary
