Hello. My name is ***** ***** I will be helping you today.

Unfortunately if there was any easy or cheap way to bypass the security system it would be worthless. The engineers have thought of pretty much everything by now with the security systems and they are pretty well designed. You WILL NOT get the truck to run without figuring out and correcting the issue which is going to require a good scan tool and most likely a new key. When you get it fixed I recommend getting two new keys so you have a spare if you have any issues in the future.

Sorry for the bad news but there is just no way around it.

Let me know if you need anything further and please be sure to rate my service so I get credit for helping you. Thanks and good luck with it.
