Hello and welcome! My name isCustomerand I can assist you with your question. Has anything been replaced for this condition? Have you tried doing the relearn procedure?
Customer: replied 6 months ago.
nothing replaced just rebuilt the engine no i dont know how to reprogram the sistian
Expert:  AMEDEE replied 6 months ago.
You might be able to get the vehicle started by doing the relearn procedure. If not chances are the passlock sensor is bad preventing the engine from starting. Let me start by sending you the ignition switch relearn procedure.
Expert:  AMEDEE replied 6 months ago.
Turn the ignition switch to the CRANK position for about one second, then release to the ON position.Leave the ignition in the ON position for 10-14 minutes. Do not go under 10 minutes or the relearn will abort. After the 10-14 minute cycle, turn the key off for 15 seconds. This will power the vehicle down. Repeat steps two more times (3 times total) if needed. After the 3rd cycle, the theft system should synchronize to the new Passlock sensor. It should then start and run normally.In some cases the vehicle may start and run before the 3rd relearn cycle. This means that the relearn has finished early. The vehicle should start and run normally from this point.
