    Sounds to me like you have a weak battery. If all lights are on and then you turn the key and get a clicking noise.. That is what mine did after sitting for two months . I got a boost and all was well again.. Hope you come out as lucky as i did..

    Anti-theft system on it? I don't know if resetting the battery would do any good but if nothing else, try the hard reset. Good luck. I used to have a 2001 GT.
