Ok, first thing, I need the 17 digit vin number to pull up correct schematics so we can start checking the correct items.

This is what I can find
Car was was working perfect before it was not in use for a week, battery is also ok
Also a couple of pictures from the Tool

i would start by unhooking the ecu and hooking it back up more then likely just a bad connection

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
ok, will start with that. I have also heard about some cable between the steering wheel and the immobilizer, can there be any issue there u think?
Expert:  cloe0626 replied 1 year ago.

its possible its an issue with the immobilezer but i would start with the ecu
