  1. About 6 weeks ago, my 2005 Sable wouldn't crank. The dashlights and headlights worked, but the starter wouldn't engage. I had it towed to a mechanic who diagnosed a bad starter. That seemed to correct the issue until last week when after driving the car and parking it for a few minutes, it wouldn't crank again. I'm in another town so I had it towed it to another shop thinking the new starter may be bad. The mechanic can engage the starter and crank it with a button that connects to the solenoid and battery. The ignition won't energize the starter relay. He says the neutral safety switch is good and thinks that the theft deterrent system is the problem. I have three keys, two are OE keys and one is after market. I've used all three previously with no problems. None of them work now. The theft light comes on when the ignition is turned to crank, but goes out after a few seconds. This mechanic doesn't have whatever is needed to program or diagnose the theft deterrent system. He has checked for broken wires in the steering columns. I just wondered if anyone has any ideas about how to troubleshoot further. Thanks in advance.
