THEFT light blinking....FIXED
Not sure where to post this correctly...
I was adjusting my thermostat switch under my hood. Then while trying to screw it back down the hot wire hit the body. The truck was running while I was doing this...when it sparked the truck shut off. I tried restarting it..it just spun over. The THEFT light on the dash is blinking rapidly!....
I called alot of people, looked at alot of web articles and could only find answers like, try a different key...Disconnect the battery for a few minutes...NONE worked.
What I tried that DIDN'T WORK:A different key.
Disconnecting the battery over night.
Hooking my superchips programmer to it...wouldnt let that..or a OBDII read anything.
What I tried that DID WORK!!!:Disconnect the battery.
Pulled EVERY fuse,relay,etc. the truck had!(something was holding the code in...so I pulled everything that might have had something to do with it)
Let it sit overnight (6pm-10am)
Got in it this morning...reinstalled all the fuses,relays,etc....
Connected the battery..(already had the key in the ignition..not sure if that helped..but thats how I had it)
Turned the key forward...and NO THEFT LIGHT FLASHING!!! Truck fired right up!!
So..if someone else has this problem..try this first before taking it to a dealer to have the comp reset.
