and when you try to start it, the antitheft light flashes, and it wont start?
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
The antitheft light flashes but nothing else happens and yes it does not start.
Expert:  Tim Mohr replied 1 year ago.
ok, this means the computer does not reconize the radio signal from the key, do you have a spare key to try in this?
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
I tried both keys and neither worked.
Expert:  Tim Mohr replied 1 year ago.
ok, then the computer has lost the programming for the keys, and will need to be reprogrammed, the dealer can do this, but we use mobile locksmiths to come out to the car and program them, they are alot cheaper, and saves a tow bill to the dealer, our local locksmith charges 70 dollars to do this, the dealer charges over 200 dollars, but until they are reprogrammed, the computer will not let the vehicle start,Tim
