The only way to reset the antitheft is to remove the key wait one minute or so then the system will reset , then you will need to try a different key that has started the car in the past. If the antitheft still does not allow the vehicle to start, then you will need ascan tool to test the system to find out which component has failed, there no way around the system no back door no way to bypass it.
