If you turn the key on and jump the wire at the starter it starts and will continue to run for an extended period ( until you decide to shut it off ) ?

Does it turn over now with the key ? If it does - does it start and stall - Security Light " ON " ?
Customer: replied 6 years ago.
no it wont crank by the key security light comes on for about 5 seconds then goes off

Okay the Passlock theft deterrent should not be the cause of you problem . At this point jumping down at the starter the engine will still "crank over " , correct ?
