OK let's find out what that 128code isWhen you turn on the key engine off park brake on. Hold the button down till the cluster beeps and you will get another couple of numbers after the 128 like 128 s54 fmi 7
I need those numbers to see if that code is preventing the engine from starting.. Let me know ty
