I assume you tried to engage and disengage the thft control ??? Outside the vehicle all doors / hood and trunk closed - hit the lock button twice so it locks all 4 doors and horn beeps. Then unlock with the key or button TWICE so all 4 doors unlock and see if the car starts. These are also known for getting water in under the floor board of the drivers seat where one of the computers sit corroding terminals - take a look there for any leakage and corrosion Good Luck
