Hi, I'm Chad. Welcome to JustAnswer. I'm reviewing your question and I will be posting your reply ASAP.

1-obviously the anti theft module is triggering on when it is not supposed to

2-what we need is a diagnostic scanner to retrieve fault codes from the anti theft module to see what part of the system is failing ,s but since no scanner is available

3- if you get it scanned ,you can post the fault code here & i can look them up for you

4-for now you can try a master reset and see if that will reset the security module and make the car start.

Master reset Procedure

1- Disconnect Battery Cables ( Negative & Positive Cables )

2- Hold cables Together for 60 secs ,then let go

3- Wait 15 minutes

4- Make sure all doors are closed

5- Reconnect battery Cables

6- Lock & unlock the vehicles using the key from driver door side (if you have a key fob with no blade key, just lock & unlock using the key fob buttons)

7- Enter the vehicle and attempt to start

Please let me know

Thank You
