how many keys you have for it ?

Expert:  Chad Farhat replied 1 year ago.

you can try this reset procedure .

1- Close all the doors , hood & trunk from the master switch from driver side ,leave driver side window open and close it by pushing lock button on master switch

2- You have to wait 30 secs and then unlock the driver door using the key

3- Then wait another 30 secs and open the door , this should reset system if no malfunction is in system .

and also have you tried disconnecting the battery for 10 min ?

and is the headlight flashing or any horn going off before this happened?
