AntiTheft Activated - Van won't Start.
I've got a 1996 Grand Caravan that I recently bought that suddenly started having a serious problem. It seems to have the usual radio gremlins, and the wipers only work on High... but until now it's been a great car. I drove it down to a store, got out - locked the doors with the key, went inside, and when I came out to start it up - I think the Anti-Theft system became activated.
Everytime I try to start it, the horn pulses, the lights flash, and it won't start.
I tried all the keys that came with the van, tried disconnecting the ground to the battery, and eventually pulled the horn fuse so at least I could try starting the van without the horn blaring. When I turn the ignition key to off - everything shuts off... when I turn it to the "On" position, I can hear a relay clicking up under the dash, and confirmed that the lights are flashing. It will turn over, and seems to just barely start to fire, butthen it sounds exactly likesomethings cutting out the ignition. Meanwhile the light's flash, the horn sounds, ect. Anyway, I managed to get a ride home, and thought I'd ask the resident experts for some suggestions, before I head back to see what else I can try.
What the heck can I do? Any suggestions would most appreciated.
