HI,

I am sorry that you have not been helped yet. I just came online and saw your question

Ok, try the following

Turn key in ignition to on position and leave. Disconnect the negative battery cable for 1 minute. Reconnect and wait 1 minute. Turn key to off position and count to 5 and then crank engine

Tried that, no luck

Does that model have an immobilizer?, Pulled dash apart can't find?
Auto Mechanic: Eric, Automotive Repair Shop Manager replied 11 months ago

HI,

Yes, it does have one, but unfortunately my schematics dont show the location, only mentioning it is factory equipped with one.

I will opt out and see if anyone has the schematics and can give you the location of the immobilizer module
