HI,

I am sorry that you have not been helped yet. I just came online and saw your question

Using the correct key, start with the key off and then turn the key on but do not start the engine. Wait 5 seconds and turn the key off. Turn the key back on again and wait 5 seconds and turn the key off. Turn the key back on again and wait 5 seconds and turn the key off (a total of three cycles of key on and wait 5 seconds and key off). Then turn the key on and crank it and see if the engine starts

The problem of my car was not yet fixed.
Expert:  Eric replied 1 year ago.

Ok, try this

Open driver door and leave open. Pop the hood and disconnect the negative battery cable. Wait 60 seconds, insert the key into the ignition and turn the key to the on position. Now, reconnect the negative cable. The alarm should sound for 60 seconds and go off. Once it does, cycle key to off and then crank it
