What light is flashing? The check engine light, the security/theft light or some other light? If the security/theft light do you have another key you can use?

I keep accepting your phone call request but an error message says, "Payment for this service failed, please do not fulfill yet. We will attempt to reach this customer to fix the situation"

have they contacted you?

Anyhow, let me see if I can find a relearn procedure.

If you don't have a scan tool, this is the procedure,

30 Minute Learn Procedure

Important

The vehicle learns the password ***** the next ignition switch transition from OFF to CRANK. You must turn the ignition OFF before attempting to start the vehicle.

  1. Turn ON the ignition, with the engine OFF.
  2. Attempt to start the engine, then release the key to ON (vehicle will not start).
  3. Observe the SECURITY telltale, after approximately 10 minutes the telltale will turn OFF.
  4. Turn OFF the ignition, and wait 5 seconds.
  5. Repeat steps 1 through 4 two more times for a total of 3 cycles/30 minutes (the vehicle is now ready to relearn the password ***** the next ignition switch transition from OFF to CRANK).
  6. Start the engine (the vehicle has now learned the password).
  7. With a scan tool, clear any DTCs if needed (history DTCs will self clear after 100 ignition cycles).
