Only if the vehicle has a anti thieft device that includes a disable by wireless mode. If you bought from a dealer they should have given you both the shut down and re activate numbers. Check your battery connections, they should be clean, none of that black corrosion, also check the power leads into the main power distribution box.


I did not buy it from the dealership and I don't know how to go about getting these codes or do you think the dash cluster just went out since the light on the dash is not flashing any longer


I still think you have a main circuit failure, could be positive, could be negative, but they all need to be checked.


Where would I need to take it and get it looked checked


Any good local shop should be able to trace it down, you don't need to go to the dealer.
