With the key in the run position what is the theft light doing?
Will it at least crank?
Thanks, ***** ***** theft system to blame. It thinks your a thief. The computer is not recognizing a correct coded key from a faulty key or PATS transceiver at the key cylinder or a module issue. If you get the same results with your spare key then a diagnostic tool is required to attempt reprogramming both keys to the vehicle. This system can not be bypassed.
You want a excellent 5 star answer & I would like to be rated the same for providing it. Consider I don't know your skill level & I can't see, smell, hear, or touch the vehicle. It may take a few back and forth replies. Try your best to respond with good detail so I can do the same. I normally log in at 3pm and work late. A rating is required. Your rating me, what I type. I am not an employee of this website, nor have control over the fees or the time it took to get a response. If you rate negative or not at all you still paid, but I get nothing. I want you pleased with me and my efforts, so let me know if your experience here has come up short.
