okay so you are referring to the security light on the dash? does it crank ?

No my clusters need to be replace. So is know security light. But check engine light comes on.
Expert:  mike switzer replied 9 months ago.

so to reset the security you need to follow this procedure

turn the key to start like normal and then let the vehicle sit in the on position for 10 minutes. then off for 10 seconds.

repeat that procedure two more times. on the forth turn of the key the vehicle will start.

Hi there, I am Cam. Do you still need help?
If so, we need to get your cluster working to see the reaction from the security light. Performing the relearn blind may not be accurate.
