It Runs For A Second And Then It Dies. Nothing On The Dash.

ok the security is triggered on , we need a capable scanner to read anti theft module and retrieve fault codes and pull up pin poinT troubleshoot and be accurate ON IT

if the fuse is still good, BUT LETS DO A MASTER RESET FIRST AND WE GO FROM THERE

Master reset Procedure

1- Disconnect Battery Cables ( Negative & Positive Cables )you can use any electrical wire as an extension if battery cables don't reach .

2- Hold cables Together for 60 secs ,then let go

3- Wait 30 minutes

4- Make sure all doors are closed

5- Reconnect battery Cables

6- Lock & unlock the vehicles using the key from driver door side (if you have a key fob with no blade key, just lock & unlock using the key fob buttons)

7- Enter the vehicle and attempt to start

Please let me know

Thank You

There Is A Clicking Noise Coming From The Fuse Box When I Turn The Key It Stops But Does Nothing As If It Killed My Battery.
I believe you need to start with battery ,not enough power from battery will make relay click , with a voltmeter check it do you have 12 volts on it, key is to check it while u have key in start postion, is it holding the 12 volts , after making sure the battery is good then reset it, if the antinthert system sees low or no voltage it will stay triggered on , somlets start hereYou are very welcome :)
