Hello, There can be many causes for the security lock. It can be caused by having the system reset and not re-enabled (i.e. by a place like Jiffy Lube). Here is a good explanation of how the system works: http://www.thirdgen.org/vats_passkey_system You may need to contact the dealer to get the correct codes to restart the car, but hopefully, the link above should help.
