I have a security light on the dashboard
Expert:  Tool Hut replied 1 month ago.

Here is something to try. you will need a minimum of 2 keys. Place vehicle on a battery charger. Leave the key on for 15 minutes or until security light goes out. do this 3 times. Yes 45 minutes. leave key 1 on for 30 seconds. switch keys. on for 30 seconds. back to original key 30 seconds. Key off and try to start. If this doesnt work you may have to find a shop that can program keys.
