You may have to get the vehicle to a dealer so they can re-program the ECM to match the key. It sounds like your key is not matched to the vehicle and the theft deterrent system is not allowing the engine to start.

I don't know 100% but I believe only the dealer has the tool to access and reprogram the ECM. And just for the heck of it.. If you have a spare key, try it as well as a last ditch effort.

After replacing the Ecm in my eclipse can u tell me ifi should beable to have communication when a scanner is hooked up?
