I was able to get the alarm to stop, but vehicle still will not turn over. Anti -theft mode? How can I bypass this?

Hello and welcome JustAnswer!

To disarm the alarm after the battery has been reconnected you'd need to press the unlock button on the key fob. Do you have a functional fob?

Customer: replied 7 months ago.
that has been done and did not reset the alarm. The alarm has stopped but vehicle will not turn over.

Was there no response to the fob at all?
