Toyota Repair/toyota mr2 anti-theft


i have a 1993 toyota mr2 and been having antitheft problems. for some reason i have to push the key fob button to deactivate the anti-theft system but that now has stopped working. when the antitheft system is acting up i get all elecricals but nothing happens when i try to crank. is there any way to just completely disable the anti theft system?

your help is appreciated.

To disable the system requires removing and cutting wires and removing the theft computer and splicing wires back together, not all systems are the same, I would recommend having a shop that specializes in alarm installations remove the system for you, they usually do this for around $60 or so.
