Hi,

Does it seem like the battery has a full charge? Headlights, radio, etc all work fine?

Do you have a spare key you could try?

Customer: replied 1 month ago.
It has a full charge , everything works except the starter and unfortunately I only have one key
Expert:  Jared D replied 1 month ago.

Do you feel comfortable doing some electrical testing? Do you have a multimeter?

Customer: replied 1 month ago.
Unfortunately I'm broken down in a parking lot and I don't have a multimeter with me

Try tapping on the starter with something solid (a hammer, or wrench) and see if it will crank again. It could be a bad starter, but that wouldn't make it stall.

I have pretty good mechanical abilities ,tried tapping on the solenoid one of the first things I tried , the starter sounded fine before all this and the thing runs great . I'm nearly positive it's something with the anti theft system

It's most likely a PCM power issue. I don't think the PATS key on this model would cause it to stall.

Try unplugging the PCM connector and check for corrosion and water damage. Then plug it back in.
