Wont start, tried jump starting, tried removing cables from battery and jump starting, won't turn over at all. Lights work ac works everything works. Turn the key and you get a clicking noise from under dash fuse panel.

Pulled the starter relay but that looks ok too. Not sure how to reset security, the light on the dash goes out when you insert the key and starts to blink when you remove it. Going to head out now to have the battery tested.

Had battery checked, ok, still looking for security reset although the dash light goes out when you insert key. Gave starter a little tap and got it to turn over, very little.

Try this.
Put the key in the ignition, and turn forward
all the way just before cranking. Then within
5 seconds, locate, press and hold in the
valet/overide button, found under the
dash area, (push button, spring loaded)
until the installed LED (the blinking light)
in your dash area goes on solid,
and the siren chirps once.

(Your valet switch might be the toggle
(on/off) type. In this case, key on,
flip switch in opposite direction,
then turn the key off.)

This should reset the alarm, and reset
the grounded relay on the starter wire,
allowing you to start the engine.

At this point, the only thing working would
be the keyless entry from the alarm,
if it came equipped that way.

Just Repeat these steps to place it
back to usable armed mode.
You may get 2 chirps, confirming it,
and the lights may flash twice as well.

That should do it.

Not sure about switch it does have a security system. I just checked online for that and was for another year car. Have it scanned for codes by a pro see if security system is messed up. I have no further comments or suggestions.
