I did what you told me in regards ***** ***** the battery a loose holding the cables together taking it a little cold in the breakdown unlocking the door and it still says starting disabled

if that did not reset the module , then you need to have it scanned and retrieved the fault codes from the anti theft module

they systems has several components , the key, the receiver, the antenna , the module , door switch , hood switch , etc...

if any failed then the module will not send proper signal to pcm to allow start up, the system is integrated with the pcm , so there is not like a fuse or relay you can pull out , unfortunately.
