Hello, my name is ***** ***** I am a professional here at Just Answer. I have noticed that your question was not getting a response and thought I would see if you still need help with this.I apologize for the delay and I hope I can still assist you with this here. The code C1298 is an ABS fault code and should not cause a no start condition. If you security light is on then I would try running the pass lock re-learn procedure. See it in the link below.
