Hello and welcome to
I assume that the engine will not even crank? Will the shifter release from park with the ignition on and foot on the brake? If so will it start in neutral? Do all accessories work like lights windows and climate control blower? What does the red security led on the center console do when you turn the ignition ON?

It turns red! It is a 5 speed!

Ok does it turn red for about three seconds then go off?
What was done already by your mechanic?
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
No it stays on! My mechanic still has my car! He ordered a part and says that is the only thing it can be and I have not heard from him since Thursday!!
Expert:  Richard replied 2 years ago.
Ok if it stays on then it could be a security system or control module fault. It should come on for a few seconds then go off. We can perform some tests with a digital multimeter. Ask the mechanic for the status of the vehicle so we can proceed. Also confirm the security light for me. Thanks. Let me know.
