This answer was rated:

its my timing is off by 4 sec or misaligned on crankshaft but that is not my problem i think they locked it so i can not get another mech to fix it becuz i went to advance and they put tester on it and after leaving dealership i went to a mech and his tester said error


Ok so you can not communicate with the scanner to the ECM?You would actually need to reset the timing by setting the crank and cams.

i guess becuz it was working so they had to put that lock on it so i would have to bring it back to them but all the parts cost about 900 dollors but their labor is around 1200 dollors and that is to much for me


If it has started happening since the work is done they are responsible to fix this for free or you can take them to small claims court and you would win,

they have not done the work yet becuz they knew i would find someone else and i have but my problem is that theft-deterrent feature was not activated until today when i took it to them if i go to advance in the moring and theirs do the same thing then i know they locked it and i am going to raise hell becuz they do not pay my car payment and they dont have the right to lock my system from letting someone else fix it.


Thats correct I doubt they locked you out if they did they can get in a lot of trouble .I would use a different shop if they did not lock you out.You can try to have the key in the ignition turned to where the radio works then disconnect the battery for 15 minutes and then reconnect the battery see if it unlocks.If not then you have to have the shop try to see what the issue is.
