Welcome, I'm Chris (aka Moose) I prefer to work when others don't, I am here around lunch and after dinner till after midnight.

For how long was the battery disconnected?

What is the battery voltage?

Do you get the same results from both keys?

Does the vehicle have an aftermarket alarm, immobilizer, or remote start?

Sorry about not getting back with you sooner Chris , I found the problem ,,when i changed the receiver drier I had stuffed a ground wire harness behind the main harness to get it out of the way .It went to one of the mounting bolts holds the drier on . Any way i hooked it back up and everything works great ,,,,,,sorry to have bothered you ,,,,Steve
