Hello and thank you for using Just Answer


the most common cause for the is the Lock Cylinder (Passlock)


it sends a signal from the key to the antitheft system


you should change the lockcylinder to fix the problem


you will not be able to disable the system because it stops the computer from pulsing the fuel injectors


let me know if you need more help
