Hi, welcome to Just Answer. I'm Ron and I will be helping you today.

Here is the reset procedure to do and it will work as long as there is nothing else wrong that would require a scan tool.

Thanks, Ron

not working the security light staying on. the key i got does not have a chip or anything in it not sure if that makes a differance?
Expert:  rpmdiag replied 3 months ago.

There are many procedures in the doc I sent you, you only need to use the type that qualifies to yours. Check your owners manual if you need to know exactly what system you have and this doc will take you though it all.

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