Expert:  sprinkles08 replied 11 months ago.
Hello and welcome to JustAnswer!There are many things that can prevent the starter from engaging. It could be a security related issue, the ignition switch, starter relay, the transmission range sensor or clutch switch depending if you have a manual or automatic trans, it could be a cable or connection issue or the starter itself.Do you hear any noise from the engine compartment when the key iss turned to the crank position?

Expert:  sprinkles08 replied 11 months ago.
Factory security systems can't be disabled. Are you seeing a security light flashing or staying on solid?
Customer: replied 11 months ago.
Yes is flashing fast I unplug the littlesensor you call antenna write near column but still doing the same thing tell me please what to do I and mechanic but. Don't now a lot of electromechanic
Expert:  sprinkles08 replied 11 months ago.
You removed the antenna that excites the key transponder? Was the light flashing before that?
Customer: replied 11 months ago.
Yes it was flashing come on men I need clean answers
Expert:  sprinkles08 replied 11 months ago.
The light will flash when the key has not been validated and is either the antenna, the immobilizer module or the key. If the problem happens with a second key then it is most likely going to be the module, a scan tool will be needed to diagnose the problem further.If a second key does work then the one that was causing the problem has failed and will need to be replaced.If no second key is available then a scan tool will need to be used to diagnose the problem further. A scan tool will be necessary to repair the problem either way because the components need to be programmed.

Can I eliminate that sistem and my truck is going to still run or do a jumper to confuse the pcm that is working and what I use jumper???? Tell me that's my work truck and if you see it is wrily worfit is like new
Expert:  sprinkles08 replied 11 months ago.
Factory security systems cannot be removed, the problem needs to be diagnosed and repaired. If the module doesn't send a bus message to the powertrain control module that it's ok to run the engine then the engine will not start.
Customer: replied 11 months ago.
Okkkk then I will scan it and reprogram everything I got another key..
