hey how are you

is the secuirty light flahsing whne you try to start now ?

do you have one or 2 keys ?

how did this happened suddenly no start, so it cranks but no start .

we need correct fuel and spark to start unless we have correct fuel & spark and the anti theft is triggered & than we will have no injector pulse

now the MAF code is the first code you need to go by if the security is not set

Have you tried resetting it ,make sure you have a good 12 volt battery first

Master reset Procedure

1- Disconect Battery Cables ( Negative & Positive Cables )you can use any electrical wire as an extension if battery cables don't reach .

2- Hold cables Together for 60 secs ,then let go

3- Wait 15 minutes

4- Make sure all doors are closed

5- Reconnect battery Cables

6- Lock & unlock the vehicles using the key from driver door side (if you have a key fob with no blade key, just lock & unlock using the key fob buttons)

7- Enter the vehicle and attempt to start

Please let me know

Thank You
