What other information do you need. This truck is actually with my son in another city, they just replaced his battery and now he cannot start his truck, I believe the alarm is going off when he gets into the truck.

Is there a small red LED button on the dash pad?




Customer: replied 5 years ago.

Ok, have him insert the ignition key and turn it 2 click to the right (do not try and start it) then press that red button in as fast as he can 10+ times then turn the ignition key off. He should hear a beep and then be able to start the truck.


Let me know.
