Try this relearn below and see if this then allows the vehicle to start.If this does not work let me know so we can continue.

- turn the key to the "run position"
- wait 10 minutes
- turn the key to the "off" position
- turn the key to the "run position"

Do this 3 times and it should start
Expert:  Pete replied 2 years ago.

I apologize for the delay.

Yes if you do this 3 times following the instructions above once this should allow starting unless you have a faulty anti theft component needing replaced.Let me know how this turns out here.

Thanks Pete

I don't have faith from my answers I've got so just forget it
Expert:  Pete replied 2 years ago.

Unfortunately this is all of the info I have on this here myself with the issue described.Is there any way you can get the fault codes checked to see what codes are set in all computers?

Did the relearn not work for this here?

Let me know,thanks Pete

Customer: replied 2 years ago.
Will crank run a couple minutes if that then die it was running fine all I did was change battery battery was off of it about 2 hours cuz needed other one to return I'm so fed up
Expert:  Pete replied 2 years ago.

Did you try the relearn above at all?

Customer: replied 2 years ago.
didn't work
Expert:  Pete replied 2 years ago.

O.k.,try this tilt the steering wheel with the tilt lever and at the same time try and start the vehicle and see if it starts and runs then and let me know.

Thanks Pete

Customer: replied 2 years ago.
Didn't make a differenceBy tilting Steeringwheel
Expert:  Pete replied 2 years ago.

This is definitely odd since this occurred only after the battery was replaced.I will open your question up for others here to see if someone else can assist further on this as there may be others here that may have more info on what to check or do with this issue.I hope you can get this resolved with ease.No need to reply to my last post here unless it is a last resort as it will keep your question locked to me and others will not be able to view it.If you feel you want to continue to work with me on this feel free to reply at any time but keep in mind in some cases it can be difficult to fully diagnose or help repair this without seeing your vehicle.

Thanks Pete
