:hurray:Hey,New to site, hope to get some info on a 96 z28. Theft deterrent system has been turned off. I'm guessing it's because the remote transmitter won't unlock the doors, it wil lock the doors and activate anti-theft when turned on. Lock acuator will lock and unlock the doors from inside but will not unlock with anti-theft on. Any ideas? Thanks

Sounds like the sysytem has been re coded set acidently
If u open the box, inside u will find a 4 digit #
With this number and a hand book that applies to the system u can then reset the sytem
eg what turns on when
delays
and if you manage to fdind a guy who knows these systems u can set other stuff that is not in the manual.
It id done by pressing buttons then turning ign switch on and off relating to the 4 digit #

What box? Where do I find it? Does this make sense to anyone else? Where would I take it to be fixed besides the Dealership? I'm in the Phoenix area.

Had a similar issue not long ago with the factory setup in the wifes toyota...I had 3 goes over several days tryingt to find it cause they are tucked way up under a trim somewhere
and unlike units added later you cant just follow wires cause they are in the looms.
I didnt actually find it, the Son in law dropped in, took a couple trim panels off, un clipped ot, unscrewed to cover and there was the code inside.

I also beleive the code can be accessed with one of those plugin computer analyser things

Well, Iv'e got the factory service manuals for that car and been through everything that deals with the alarm and remote transmitter . It shows how to customize the system and turn it on and off. Also I went through the BCM diagnostics and found no problems?

Caminoman: I have a 97 Z28 and they should be pretty close. Do you know what modes your remote keyless and alarm are set too? The remote keyless entry comes factory set in mode 5 and the anti-theft comes with a factory setting of mode 3 for my year Z.

1 is system off 2 is transmitter arms 3 is transmitter and lock switch arms 4 is passive (automatic). It was off when I bought the car. I'm not sure the problem is with the theft deterrent. The remote transmitter will not unlock the doors, it will lock them but not unlock. I assume the theft deterrent was turned off because you can't in the car without it going off. I've turned it back off until I can figure it out.
