HI,

I am sorry that you have not been helped yet. I just came online and saw your question.

If the security light is either blinking on and off or staying on longer than 10 seconds, then it is an immobilizer fault. If not, then there is another issue. I need to know if any electrical accessories work - radio, lights, blinkers, etc. Also, I will need the vin number to pull any needed wiring diagrams
