It will not start and the anti theft lock light is on. Tried
unhooking and rehooking battery, lock and unlock door, jumped the battery. What's up?
Do you
have the same problem?

Your PAT (Passive Anti Theft) system has put your car on lock down. The only way to get past this is to get it to the dealer. They have a special program that will unlock it for you. A lot of the time when you unhook the battery, especially in newer cars, they tend of freak out. Kind of like having to put in a radio code when you change a battery, only worse. Should be a quick fix though.
