Hi, I' m Chad. Welcome to JustAnswer. I' m reviewing your question now, and I will be post back with your reply ASAP

Expert:  Chad Farhat replied 1 year ago.

is there a security light steady on or flashing while you trying to start ?

If all fuse are checked and you can jump it from starter relay, and the light is on , then the alarm is engaged , now is it because of the key or any part of the system ,switch ,

module wiring etc...

but if no light is on, we may have different problem

what kind of scanner are you using, is capable of communicating with the alarm module ?

I have sent you some diagrams thru my drop box, let me know , if your able to open the link ?

Why did the dealer order twice and had an issue like you mentioned , can you explain , didn't you order by Vin# ?

**The anti theft module located under driver seat **

Please let me know
