Hello and Thank you for choosing Just Answer.


Resetting the Anti-theft system may or may not work depending on why exactly the truck went into theft mode in the first place. You will need 2 igntion keys for this process to be even be attempted.


  1. Sit in the vehicle with all doors closed, Take 1 key and turn to the "on" position, right before start and let it sit there for 6 seconds. Remove key
  2. Take 2nd key and do the same as the first key.
  3. After removing the 2nd key, take the first key and do the same as step 1.
  4. Remove the key and then try starting the truck.
