Ok, in the engine compartment fuse box, look at the label for placement and remove fuse 14(40amp) for 60 seconds, reinstall and then crank engine. It should start up unless there is a hard failure in the security system as this is the reset procedure

Ok the fuse box under the hood?
Expert:  Eric replied 1 year ago.


Correct, the fuse box in the engine compartment under the hood

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Ok, still won't start. I guess it's a computer problem

Unfortunately it will be a fault in either the security control module or possibly a faulty key. If you have a spare key and it doesnt work either, then it will be the security control module
