Hey how are you ,I will Try to Help you with This Issue

The security system is triggered on and not allowing Starter engagement?

Try this reset

Master Reset

1-Disconnect Both Battery Cables ,Positive & Negative .
2- Touch Cables With Each Other For 60 Secs ( this will take any residual power in the Harness to Reset the Vehicle Modules )
3- Wait 30 min
4- Close all doors and trunk
5- Reconnect Battery Positive First
6- Use The Key in The Driver Side Door
Lock Cylinder to Lock it & Unlock,IF You have only a Key Fob ,use it to lock and unlock
7- Enter vehicle and Start it .

Are the all locks working ?

has it been really cold out side and car sits outside ?

this is first time it happened ?

If you do not mind me asking are you looking for the most possible causes and taking it to a repair shop or you are repairing it yourself and you need step by step instructions
Please Let Me Know
Thank You

this has happened before. It is only a key. Last time it happened we got out of the car locked it and unlocked it with the key. Got back in and started. This time no luck.

try the reset i sent you and let me know

and we go from there

if that does not work

You will need a Capable Factory scanner or equivalent to Read the Fault codes in the Modules needed and based on these faults we can pull up a Pin Point Troubleshoot and be Accurate ,If you get the Faults Read ,post them back here for me and I can Help You Further on it & we be Accurate

Where do I find Capable Factory scanner or equivalent to Read the Fault codes. Or can I disconnect security system

The security can not be disconnected unfortunately ,no fuse or relay to pull out

EBAY.COM is good source to buy or online sites

launch.com

mactools.com

otc.com

Look for one that has ASIAN software in it and covers infinity security systems

when you do a search on Ebay, enter (95 infinity J30 Diagnostic scanner Anti theft system Immobilizer )
