    i have this anti theft light on my dash,, looks like a locked lock.. and you can be driving along and it just comes on for no reason.
    once on a while it will come on when i turn on ignition and if it dosen't go out you gotta wait exactly 10 minutes to start it.
    but ifit comes on while driving it has no affect on the engine,,,,, can i disconnect this thing somehow? it is a pain.

    you can buy a remote starter bypass and install it.($50-$80) If you do not understand or know the system well then I would suggest having someone who installs remote starters/alarms do it. I know a guy here that has been doing remote starters and alarms for over 25 years. I have a friend that was having a similar issue. I got them together and the remote start guy installed the bypass to turn on when the key was turned forward rather then when the remote stater engaged.
