here's what i found: 1.Turn ON the ignition, with the engine OFF. 2.Observe the Security telltale, after approximately 10 minutes the telltale will turn off. 3.Turn OFF the ignition, and wait 5 seconds. 4.Repeat steps 1-3 two more times for a total of 3 cycles or 30 minutes. Important: The vehicle theft deterrent system learns the key transponder information on the ignition switch transition from OFF to CRANK. You must turn the ignition OFF before attempting to start the vehicle. 5.Start the vehicle. The vehicle has now learned the key transponder information and the PCM has now learned the fuel continue password. supposedly, that'll reset the whole alarm system. should work from there. have fun with that!
