I’ve tried all these and nothing worked, I also don’t know which fuse is to the security system (they only have pictures, not very good ones I might add) Any other suggestions?

Okay, I will look it up for you. Can you give me the engine information? Is it 1.8, 1.9, or 2.0 Liter. Hope to hear back soon.
