Can't get antitheft to reset so that we can start the car again


Try using another key if you have one ,,, the key transponder battery may be low ... if it gets very low it won't send the "confirm" signal to the computer

I have the shop manual-to reset passlock-turn key on to start,do not try to start it.leave it that way for 10 minutes,after ten minutes,shut key off then start the maibu is a 2001 piece of crap.the passlock chip finally gave up at 65 thousand miles.i had the system repaired.passlock control chip is just above where you put in the key.i had the mechanic give me the bad one.i tested was burned runs fine now.but that is the secret on how to reset of there mechanics told me years does work.take care.
