Non-encoded ignition key being used.
Fuses No. 15 (5-amp) and No. 18 (20-amp) not blown.
Loose or corroded connections.
Damaged wiring harness.
Damaged ignition switch.
RETRIEVING CODES
NOTE:A New Generation Star (NGS) Tester (007-00500) is required for testing the passive ant-theft control system.

Before beginning any testing, retrieve any existing Diagnostic Trouble Codes (DTCs) from Passive Anti-Theft System (PATS) module. Make any repairs that may be indicated. See appropriate code related SELF-DIAGNOSTIC TESTS.
