No. Go to a mechanic and get the car fixed.


Try the procedure in this first. http://www.cargurus.com/Cars/Discussion- d475_ds505015

Tried the steps on that link already . Did not work.. I have 2 of these cars can I just swap all the parts from 1 car to the other?----meaning take out the computer , the module , the ignition with the key from one car to the other work.?? If any one can answer this , I would apriceate it .. I need to see my daughter .. God bless


Yes you can swap them but you may have to go through that procedure afterwards.
