If you did a hard reset ,so u disconnect battery 10 minutes locked and unlock the door the key and that didn't solve it?
Is the led light flashing or steady on with key in on or start postion ?
If u did the reset with the unlock , you can NOT bypass , it runs try the ecm , the ecm has to see the inputs from it
I know that is not what u want to hear , but you just simply can t do it by just unplugging wires . I m sorry .
Expert:  Chad Farhat replied 5 months ago.
Try unhooking battery , both cables and touch them with each other 20 secs and let go wait 10, lock & unlock and try , if not
You have to see what is bad in anti theft , module , receiver , antenna coil around the ignition etc....
