Angry Solutions?! Theft light flashing, no start, GEM module buzzing.....

The other day i installed new lights. I disconnected the negative for about two to three hours. When i went to start it, i noticed a loud buzzing coming from the front right panel of the car. The car just cranked but no start. While i was cranking it the theft light was flashing fast. I disconnected then reconnected the negative and the car started fine. It ran good for about a day then it went back to doing the same thing. The tachometer also just shows dashes instead of numbers........ Any suggestions?

Maybe somehow your car is no longer recognizing the chip in the key.

i called the dealer and they suggested i have a bad ground that might have thrown the passive anti theft system out of wack and i might have to re program my keys to the pats.
