Thanks for posting

There is no 'kill' switch on this model, have you checked for spark at the spark plugs? Does it have fuel pressure? Does the engine crank normally?

when the key is turned on does the check engine light turn on?

We recently had flooding in the area, and the vehicle was submerged and I believe the alarm was activated the surcurity light is solid and the horn blares constantly. I can start the vehicle by the battery WITHOUT the key in the ignition....I know the vehicle has a starter killer on the alarm they prevents the vehicle from even turning over once the alarm is activated my question is how do I reset the alarm so I can again start the vehicle

Submerged is a bad word for this case it was driven through high waters
