Has it not started since the used column was installed. There is no reset. More than likely, what is happening is the key that the column came with has a different resistance value than the original key. Since the module was not changed to match the key, it wont start. Check the resistance of the key from the old column, and the resistance of the key from the replacement column and see if they differ. If you can find out the vats code of the original key, you can have a key with that code, cut to match the replacement columns key pattern.

I forgot to mention we already got the new key that is suppose to work but it just wont crank. The security light is on and wont crank, we tried the 20 minute thing to try and reset it, all it did was make the dinging to the door go faster, please help!
