Does the theft light flash when your trying to star the vehicle?
If I get the codes (using OBD2 scanner??), can I come back and post the codes without paying a fee again? I really do appreciate your help! From, Kelly
If there are no codes, we will have to diagnose it another way. Turn the key to on and see if you have fuel pressure at the schrader valve on the metal fuel rails for the injectors. When you push the needle valve down, you should get a BIG spray of fuel. The schrader vlave looks like a tire valve stem. Let me know what you get.
The green and yellow wire has power and the red and black does not have power. We tested with a test light.
Sorry, I should have explained that better. Do the test with the switch plugged in.
Ok. You are correct, they moved it in 2001. The connector should have a RED/BLACK striped wire and a BROWN/PINK striped wire. Check for power on either one of these wires with the connector plugged into the module and the key on.
Below is the diagram I am looking at.
Yes, it is held in with 2 straps and an 8mm bolt holding the filler neck bracket. You can lower it with a floor jack with the rear end up on jack stands. Here re the links for the directions.

I am only seeing one ACCEPT on 12/05/2009. Contact the website administrator and see if they can assist you. That side of this I have no control over.
At the bottom of the screen there is a HELP link. Click on it and see if you can get to where you need to go.
I did what you suggested by putting the positive battery cable on last when the key is in the 'on' position. I let it sit there for a minute before trying to turn the key. Well, now the alarm is not screaming but I still cannot start my car. I turn the key and nothing happens. I even went and had my key remote checked and it is working. I had my battery charged all the way and still the same thing. I think the anti-theft system is still keeping my car from running. Please help!!! I must get it running so I can get to work.
