You should have battery voltage at the purple wire on the starter with the key in the start position. Theres a lot of stuff to test let me know when you get the car. Also is the security light on solid or flashing?

The reason it doesnt start is because the security light is on the starter has been disabled.I posted how to relearn the pass lock sensor. Try that if it starts you need to get the ecm and bcm computers for codes.I doubt its a fuse its most likely a fault in your antitheft system. Does your keyless entry remotes work?

Pulling the fuse is not going to reset anything.

If you have a different key, try it.
