Hello, my name is ***** ***** I am a professional here at Just Answer. I have noticed that your question was not getting a response and thought I would see if you still need help with this.I apologize for the delay and I hope I can still assist you with this here.

In order for the engine to start and run you you need good spark, injector pulse and proper fuel pressure. If you can check each one of these things and see which one you are lacking and post back with the results we can wor from there to determine the cause.

all above are ok the car just shut down and wont start not works and dont recognize my fob key, will lock and unlock the car but give check keyless entry, changed battery.

Expert:  Ron replied 1 year ago.

If the problem is with the FOB then in order to determine what is failing the system is going to need to be scanned and the fault code and or codes retrieved. If you can get this done and post back with the results we can work from there.

Customer: replied 1 year ago.

cannot even scan ones a put the key switch to II position it strats turning over without stopping

Expert:  Ron replied 1 year ago.

All you need to do to scan it is tun the key to the on position, are you able to do that?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.

no was not able

Expert:  Ron replied 1 year ago.

Well with out being able to scan its leaves us nothing to go on, why are you not able to scan the system?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.

Expert:  Ron replied 1 year ago.

So are you saying the starter is staying engaged?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.

yes

Expert:  Ron replied 1 year ago.

Have you checked to see if both the cable and the small start wire have battery voltage on them , if so the there is problem with the switch, if not try smacking the starter a few time with a small hammer and see if it unsticks.

just to show

Expert:  Ron replied 1 year ago.

Okay I saw it, it looks like you have something feeding the starter circuit, does it stop cranking if you unplug the switch?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.

did not try to unplug the switch will try and get back to you.

or is there any starter relay that i can take out so i can get to scan.

Expert:  Ron replied 1 year ago.

Try pulling the #33 fuse in the interior fuse panel and see if that kills the switch.

Customer: replied 1 year ago.

dont have the #33 fuse.

but pulled out a wire from starter, so went and try diagnose but gave mi error cannot communicate, you will here a click sound by the dlc.

so refresh i started my car reversed it step out the car to come back it was shut off since then did not start again.

its starts cranking at position II and that's not normal.
