Car not start, engine try to turns (or how it be in English), it's like if i use not original keys (with no chip). But with keys all it's ok.

With the key in the run position is the check engine light on and the theft light off (not flashing rapid)?

34;With the key in the run position is the check engine light on and the theft light off (not flashing rapid)?"When i try to launch car?

I have the ECU connector pin configuration but I have nothing on the inside the ECU because techs do not fix them internally.

When you say launch, I do not know what that means.

Launch - turn key to start the car
Can you send ECU connector pin configuration please?

Here is the PCM pin chart.

Now that I have posted a partial or complete answer, you will see you can rate me. The deposit you have already paid is not transferred to me until you rate me. I would like to receive nothing less than 5 star excellent ratings. So if we are not there yet, please reply and let me help more. If you're not pleased, let me know because rating bad does not result in a refund, there are better options. Rating now will not close this post nor prevent replying. Thanks Chris

With the key in the run position theft lamp flashing rapidly and mileage Procer.

With the key in the run position theft lamp flashing rapidly and mileage DASH (not procer - my error)

The rapid flashing theft lights means it will not start because the computer thinks you are a thief. The dashed out odometer means the PCM is bad or is not getting all of the powers and ground it needs.

You need to confirm the PCM is getting all the powers and grounds it needs. If so then you need to replace the PCM then program 2 keys to the vehicle to resolve this.
