If the security system will nit reset and allow you to run the vehicle then it is likely that the programming is corrupt in the BCM, a dealer maybe able to reflash it to bring the programming back. Call them with the Vin and find out for sure, if it can't be reflashed then a new BCM will be needed.

Thank you for your help will try this where is the BCM


On the back side of the inside fuse box, you will have to remove some dash pieces to gain access to it.

This is the most help I've got from anywhere!


Ex Jeep owner, had some trouble with my old Jeep, a reflash fixed it.
