You may have to take it to a shop, but avoid Dealers, a good mechanic can do almost everything the dealer can, and at half the cost, but with the exception of anti theft/security systems, they have to be reprogrammed


If ur giing to by pass the system try taking it to a local coustomizer or any place that installs them befor u go to a dealer to avoid a crazy price


either that or the crank sensor. are there trouble codes from the computer?
