Default Theft light blinking

Ok this has been going on for the past couple months. When my car is cold and i start it up the theft light stays on and blinks very fast for about 3 minutes or so then it slows down and only blinks on and off in 30 second intervals. then after about 10 mins it goes off. If i turn the car off when this happens right away and then turn it back on it usually goes away. It may not make any sense but its hard to explain, does anyone know what would cause this? if it is any help my car also has a slight miss at 2k - 2.5k rpms when cold as well and sometimes when the car warms up. PLease help me out

See i dont think its my wires or my plugs. They were replaced about a year ago. This week im going to inspect the wires and the gap om all my plugs. But the theft light really doesnt cause any apparent problems. I just thought it was a sign of faulty wiring or maybe a sign that the computer is getting ready to go

I gotta tell you that the Kenne Bell boost a spark works great on our cars...the OEM stuff is kinda weak..also I think the light is supposed to blink

Ill check my light when i get home and post up.... but that doesnt make sense bc if the theft light was on the car shouldnt start... My gf dad makes keys and gave me one for my car but we forgot its a chip key so when i tried to use the one he gave me the car would start up than stall bc it wasnt a chip key programed to the car.... this is tricky hmm

I know. It doesnt really affect anything i just thought it was kind of wierd. Ill try to catch it again take video of it and post it up. Maybe my antitheft is going bad? Who knows i really want to figure it out though.


2Many _ would the kb boost a spark work with no tune?

yes, boost a spark would work fine with no tune...I'm almost sure the light blinks all the time, alot of cars have that feature, including my Infiniti

the sound is coming from one of my speakers, the aftermarket stereo that was installed wasnt installed right. its just a matter of me going back in and wiring it right. you on hear the sound when the stereo is at low volume and when the headunit is on. But i really wish i knew what was causing the theft light. i already know what that bee noise is just need to pin point this problem before it turns into something major.
