Welcome, I'm Chris (aka Moose). No experts here are Just Answer employees, we do not get a paycheck or benefits from JA. We are independent contractors, only paid when you rate our answer.

With the key in the run position is the theft light (lock) on or flashing?

Do you get the same results from both keys?

Any aftermarket electronics on the vehicle?

It's flashing fast

Thanks,

Do you get the same results from both keys?

Any aftermarket electronics on the vehicle?

Do the headlights shine bright and remain bright while trying to start?

Did anything happen to the car or keys that may have caused this?

Thanks, ***** ***** one thing to try prior to needing a scan tool. Try charging the battery or a jump start. A weak battery can cause a false anti theft activation. If you still have the issue after that call your local locksmith and ask if they are mobile as well as have the scan tool to see if there is a part failure as well as reprogram keys to the vehicle. The last option is a tow to a dealer. This system does not have a reset or bypass method.

Thanks for asking your question and letting me try to help you.

I like to stay in contact with my customers that appear not pleased, still working on the concern, or have not rated yet. I assume you were not pleased with my help. I hate that you have spent money to get an answer but left not happy. Can you tell me why, or can I help more. If its more help you need just reply and we can pick up where we left off. I am also sending an offer allowing me to upload diagrams or repair guides if that helps.

Thanks Chris
