Hi my name is ***** ***** I will be happy to assist with this today.In some cases I may need more info to assist better.I apologize for any delay.My info is somewhat limited on your model here but I had seen no one else has responded and would like to see if I can help here.If at any time you feel that I cannot help with this please let me know.
Usually the theft system will allow a computer or scan tool to connect to read codes still if the theft has been activated and if you are unable to communicate with a computer or scan tool on your model here this doesnt sound like a theft fault.
This can be an issue with the engine computer itself in some cases as I have seen before.I would have the diagnostic connector checked for any shorts or damage needing repaired and test to make sure the engine computer has its proper powers and grounds.If these are all found to be o.k. this may be an issue with the engine computer itself.I would have this tested further and may be best to have a dealer repair facility test this as they usually have the best knowledge and test equipment for this testing to see if the computer itself needs replaced.
