Where everything stops blinking and stops ticking
Customer: replied 4 months ago.
The switch is on the on button
Expert:  Chad Farhat replied 4 months ago.

you have to do the disconnect for 10 min

but if it doesn't we need to have the fault codes red in the anti theft module?

so we can know which part of the anti theft system is malfunctioning, the key, the receiver the antenna the module , the door switch etc ..

is this first time it happens ?

Customer: replied 4 months ago.
All the lights in the dash board are blinking.
Expert:  Chad Farhat replied 4 months ago.

do the disconnect and see what happens

Customer: replied 4 months ago.
We have done that all the lights are blinking.
Expert:  Chad Farhat replied 4 months ago.

if the reset did not solve it, you need a capable scanner to retrieve fault codes at this point unfortunately , the anti theft is connected to the pcm, if it does not sends a signal that it recognized the key the pcm want allow start up, there is not a fuse you can pull unfortunately to solve it ?

i m sorry but these system are all integrated now days
