I have checked every fuse in the fuse box under hood the passenger kick panel and in the trunk all good

there are 2 fuse boxes under the hood

Ask Your Own Car Question

is the fuse box on the right hand side under he hood?

Ask Your Own Car Question

I forgot the Battery junction fuse box was located in the trunk so there's only one under the hood.

Ask Your Own Car Question
Customer reply replied 5 months ago
I don't know I will have to look however when I went to try and start it the alarm went off and I had to put key in door lock to turn it off

ok, let me know. we might be dealing with a PATS lockout

Ask Your Own Car Question
Customer reply replied 5 months ago
I don't see the light

there should be the word security or theft or a little red blinking light on the dash

Ask Your Own Car Question
Customer reply replied 5 months ago
there is no light blinking in instrument panel but on the top of the dash by front windshield there is a round red light blinking

thats the anti theft light

Ask Your Own Car Question

is it going out when the key is turned to the start position?

Ask Your Own Car Question
Customer reply replied 5 months ago
the red light is not on when the doors are shut like it used to do now when you turn the key on it starts flashing
Customer reply replied 5 months ago
thanks I will check it tomorrow if the fuse is good then what should I do

the key will need to be reprogrammed

Ask Your Own Car Question

do you have another key?

Ask Your Own Car Question
Customer reply replied 5 months ago
no I only have one

ok then it will need to be reprogrammed if the fuses are good

Ask Your Own Car Question
