Unhook the battery cable (neg. cable) for about 5 minutes, then, Make sure you have the keys in your pocket, hook the negative cable back up, then close the hood, all the doors, and put your key in the drivers door lock cylinder. Lock and unlock the drivers door 5 times, then attempt to start the vehicle. Unless there is a problem with the anti theft system, that should reset it. Let me know if you have any further questions. Thank you.
