Hello and welcome!My name isCustomerand I can assist you with your question.
Have you checked for codes in the computer? Are you looking for possible causes?
Based on my experience, if it were a security issue related to the the engine would not crank over.. but your engine is cranking over and not starting.
If this is caused by a security issue, this would be a faulty key or keys and or a bad wireless control module located on the steering column
You can check for codes using the diagnostic connector under the dash even if the engine does not start.
Sometimes you can reset the modules on board the vehicle by disconnecting the battery cables from the battery and holding them together for about 10 minutes. This will discharge the capacitors inside the module and allow them to unlock "IF" the problem is related to a locked up module.
YES, it is called the obd2 connector under the dash on the drivers side. It is a 16 pin connector. YES, after the battery cables are disconnected from the battery, you hold them together for 10 minutes. I would check for codes first in the computer before disconnecting the battery because then you will lose the memory in the modules when you disconnect the battery
Hold the cables together for about 10 minutes and then re attach them and see if tht does the trick.
YES. as long as they are no longer connected to the battery.. it will be fine
If still no luck after doing that, then I would recommend to check fuel pressure and spark while cranking. Maybe you have a bad fuel pump or a power distribution problem caused by the TIPM under the hood. Also, dont forget to check for codes in the computer.
