I prayed a lot and my prayers was answered. Wicked demonic security system. The security light was flashing and absolutely will not go away while trying to start the vehicle. The engine Seems dead, No sound at all 'except for a click from a relay down by the kick panel will not start.
The key will open and lock the doors just wont start the truck. I tried all those tricks locking and unlocking the doors 'pulling out the two fuses that's paired together ' none of that worked.
But I want to thank you for all your help ' the conversations in these threads lead me to the right decision 'if I had -had my truck towed to a shop I'm sure I was going to be taking for a ride. I called a locksmith ' He was out at my house no more than 5 min and it was running light is out ' no more silence when I turn key. My my truck was down for three days and facing a hefty repair bill. All it took was a lock smith.
It was my chip in the key. So here are the symptoms my truck had:
Wife went to the store, turned off the truck, got back in tried to start the truck.
It turned over but would not start, this happened about 3 times. No sure how many
I thought it was the fuel pump. In a way it was
all the bells and dash lights worked, and went out like normal ' then came that dreaded flashing little round circled light which in this vehicle is the security light. It was blinking constantly. The radio worked the lights worked every thing worked, except the engine. I hope this help someone who think they're truck is dead. It is not dead just in an automotive coma, or at best catatonic state. Call a lock smith before you go to a dealer.(Pray that it is only a bad chip.) They will cut you another key' this one has no unlock or panic buttons on it but it work. I still use the other key to unlock and lock my vehicle I just do not put it in the ignition. . The cause was: My key chip was dead ' even though it still operated my doors windows panic button still worked ' it just wasn't sending a signal to the computer to let it know to start the vehicle. The fix: A new key was cut and programmed.
How long did it take:
When they arrived I went out side spoke to the guys shook hands ' walked back in my house for my wallet, walked back all that took about 5 minutes and my truck was running when I walked back out. 5 minutes. Un-fricking believable.
I really hope this help someone. I really do. Lastly: Make sure the Locksmith has the ability to program automotive keys. It was a nightmare.
