HI,

Ok, the first step is to do the relearn procedure for the antitheft system

1. Press the START button.(will not start)
2. Observe the Security telltale. After approximately 10 minutes the telltale will turn off.
3. Turn OFF the ignition, and wait 5 seconds.
4. Repeat steps 1-3 two more times for a total of 3 cycles or 30 minutes.
5. Start the vehicle. The ECM has now learned the RCDLR password.
