It was running with a very bad battery, I was trying to charge the battery and it died. I couldn't restart with the old battery so I got a new one and it just cranks, no start. It ran perfect up to that point.

can I use the key I have or do I need a new one?
Expert:  mike switzer replied 6 months ago.
the brake code only allows you to start the vehicle once. my best suggestion it to have a mobile locksmith come out and reprogram the keys for you. the brake code was designed to allow you to start the vehicle to drive it to the dealership for them to program the keys.

I want to drive it to have it there, not pay so much to have a mobile locksmith do it. I understand what it's for. Can I use the key I currently have?
Customer: replied 6 months ago.
Even starting it the one time will prove my theory about it not starting for that reason.
Expert:  mike switzer replied 6 months ago.
no you need the red master key. to prove your theory is the security light flashing when the key is in the on position?
