HI, Ok, open the driver door, place key in the ignition and turn to the on position. Now remove the negative battery cable for 60 seconds, then reconnect the battery. The alarm should sound for about 60 seconds and then turn off. Now cycle key to off, wait 5 seconds and then crank engine Please remember to rate service using the rating page so that I may receive credit.
