Hi, my name is ***** ***** I will be happy to assist with this today.In some cases, I may need more info to assist better.I apologize for any delay.

Is the security light on solid or flashing at all on the dash with either the key on or when you try and start it and when it will not start you release the key ( without turning the key back any)?It may look like a picture of a car with a lock across it.

Let me know so we can continue, thanks Pete
