Hello, I'm Cam. Please include all the details about your issue so I can accurately advise you. I cannot see your vehicle so please be detailed.
The relearn procedure is as follows. Turn the key on and try to start the engine. Allow the engine to stall while leaving the key in the run position. Wait 10 minutes. Turn the key off for 30 seconds. Then try to start the engine again, again releasing key to run and starting the timer for 10 minutes. Do this one more time, for a total of 30 minutes. Following the last off time, the engine should start.
