Ok. Do you or do you not have a theft light on the dash that comes on when you turn the key to the on position?

I mean the factory theft light. In the cluster. Not an aftermarkert one.

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Probably yes have ligth but the cluster is broken not lights
Expert:  EricFromCT replied 1 year ago.

The cluster holds all the information for the programmed keys. Does the instrument cluster work at all? How is it broken?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
The is trumental clouster no show lights the needles no movin when open the ignition switch
Expert:  EricFromCT replied 1 year ago.

The cluster needs to work before the truck will start. You should check all the fuses under the hood and inside the vehicle with a test light. Hopefully you find the cluster fuse blown.

I'm check ready fueses and relay all is good when open the switch only shoul one ligth airbag
Expert:  EricFromCT replied 1 year ago.

I will send you the wiring diagram of how the cluster gets its power. If fuses ok check for power at the cluster. I have to go offline for a few. Check for power and let me know. CLICK HERE for wiring diagram.

Expert:  EricFromCT replied 1 year ago.

The cluster does need to power on for the truck to run. The cluster may be bad. You can check power at the cluster connectors.

Customer: replied 1 year ago.

Does the cluster actually light up and work?

Expert:  EricFromCT replied 1 year ago.

Did you check for power and ground at the cluster connectors? Sounds like more must have been done to the vehicle then just replace the battery?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
we replace Baterry and the starte is working
Expert:  EricFromCT replied 1 year ago.

Did you make sure that all the power cables are connected to the main positive cable?

Expert:  EricFromCT replied 1 year ago.
