Theft Light?

So it's doing the blinking thing again. So I took a video of it. Any ideas on what is causing this? It started off blinking really fast (On & Off) and then slowed down to this.

Re: Theft Light?

I know if the CEL does it that it can be linked to a transmission issue. I have no idea about the brake light though unless a sensor is going bad and thinking its on/off all the time.

It only does it every once in awhile, too.

It happened again tonight. I counted.

171 rapid blinks.

Then...

7 blinks.
5 seconds of no blinks.
1 blink.

Repeated a few times and then stopped.

Re: Theft Light?

did a quick search and found this

I had this happen to me this winter on my 99. I thought it was the fuel pump so I dropped the tank & installed a new one. No Dice. Turns out it was my PATS on the fritz. I reflashed my computer with my SCT Tunner and the car fired right up. It would keep screwing up. So I had my X-cal2 programed to turn off the PATS. In the mean time I could start my car by messing with the key and the tilt wheel, or reflashing the computer. I had my PATS disabled and haven't had a problem since.
