Hey how are you,I will try to help you with this issue

there is a diagnostic port in it ,driver side below instrument panel,click on link to view location

but we can reset it manually using below procedure

Master reset Procedure

1- Disconnect Battery Cables ( Negative & Positive Cables )you can use any electrical wire as an extension if battery cables don't reach .the reason we do that is to take any residual power in the wiring harness to try to reset the modules ,and there will be no spark created touching them since we took battery power source out of the loop by taking both cables off

2- Hold cables Together for 60 secs ,then let go

3- Wait 30 minutes

4- Make sure all doors are closed

5- Reconnect battery Cables

6- Lock & unlock the vehicles using the key from driver door side (if you have a key fob with no blade key, just lock & unlock using the key fob buttons)

7- Enter the vehicle and attempt to start

You are very welcome :)

To be honest at this time we need a capable scaner to retrieve fault codes and based on these code I can pull up a pin point troubleshoot ,with out that it will be a guess
