Hi, welcome to Just Answer. I’m Ron and I’ll be helping you
today.
Before we get started though, Please understand that I don't know
your skill level or tools you have to assist us. Also understand that
I can't see, smell, hear, or touch the vehicle either, so patience is
appreciated. JA is a great Q/A site, but it does NOT replace a
repair shop.
My goal is to make you happy and get a great rating in return for
my time. Sometimes I have to give you bad news that I know you
didn’t want to hear, so please don’t shoot the messenger.

I attached the procedure for you to follow to fix that issue.

thanks, Ron

Could it b fuel pump defective?
Expert:  rpmdiag replied 4 months ago.

Okay, then there's another problem such as a bad key reader etc. the only real way to be sure is to attache a scan tool and check inside the computer. the doc I sent you is only good if there are no other problems. You can check the fuel pressure with a gauge, but I was under the impression from you that you had a security problem like the light is flashing etc.

Thanks again, and please remember to rate me #5 and keep this link in case you need me again later on.

The light has went out now . Still will not start.
Expert:  rpmdiag replied 4 months ago.

Okay, let's check fuel pressure and spark to the plugs so we're not chasing our tails here.

Thanks,

Ron
