Expert:  sprinkles08 replied 1 year ago.
Hello and welcome to JustAnswer!There are many things that can prevent the starter from engaging. It could be a security related issue, the ignition switch, starter relay, the transmission range sensor or clutch switch depending if you have a manual or automatic trans, it could be a cable or connection issue or the starter itself.Do you hear any noise from the engine compartment when the key iss turned to the crank position?

Expert:  sprinkles08 replied 1 year ago.
Factory security systems can't be disabled. Are you seeing a security light flashing or staying on solid?
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Yes is flashing fast I unplug the littlesensor you call antenna write near column but still doing the same thing tell me please what to do I and mechanic but. Don't now a lot of electromechanic
Expert:  sprinkles08 replied 1 year ago.
You removed the antenna that excites the key transponder? Was the light flashing before that?
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Yes it was flashing come on men I need clean answers
Expert:  sprinkles08 replied 1 year ago.
The light will flash when the key has not been validated and is either the antenna, the immobilizer module or the key. If the problem happens with a second key then it is most likely going to be the module, a scan tool will be needed to diagnose the problem further.If a second key does work then the one that was causing the problem has failed and will need to be replaced.If no second key is available then a scan tool will need to be used to diagnose the problem further. A scan tool will be necessary to repair the problem either way because the components need to be programmed.

Can I eliminate that sistem and my truck is going to still run or do a jumper to confuse the pcm that is working and what I use jumper???? Tell me that's my work truck and if you see it is wrily worfit is like new
Expert:  sprinkles08 replied 1 year ago.
Factory security systems cannot be removed, the problem needs to be diagnosed and repaired. If the module doesn't send a bus message to the powertrain control module that it's ok to run the engine then the engine will not start.
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Okkkk then I will scan it and reprogram everything I got another key..
