2008 Chevy Malibu LT
Went to install an aftermarket radio yesterday. After I secured all connections I turned the radio on and it worked without any issues. I proceeded to turn the vehicle off and secured the radio in the dash. Once I reaffixed the dash I attempted to turn the car on. Suddenly I heard a constant ticking sound and the doors kept locking and the anti-theft symbol on the dash started blinking all simultaneously and the engine wouldn't start. The battery appears dead so I recharged it. After a few minutes I attempted to start the car again. The same issue occurred. I then reinstalled the factory radio and still the problem persists. What could this be? What could be making the anti-theft light up and blink on the dash? What's the clicking noise I'm hearing? How might I resolve this problem and what might the cost be?
have the same problem?
