They tried stealing my car but all they could do was screw things up on the inside. Jammed a screwdriver in my ignition, I replaced it.....but now when I turn the key, only the accessories turn on, windows work, lights, stereo, but won't kick over everything goes dead.

Does anyone know how to re-set or re-program the security system or computer? I tried disconecting the battery, tried leaving the key on for 30 min.

I am desperate...any suggestions???

Have it towed to a dealership. You should be happy you can't get it started, probably why the cars still there. Do you see any immobilizer or pass key lights "ON" ?

No I don't see any of those lights on. Just the SECURITY LIGHT, the dealership is talking about $300 to $400 minimum., I don't have that kinda paper right now.

Try turning on the switch until all your accesories light up, then hit your brake pedal 3 times slowly, then turn key off. Wait 20 sec and try starting....................hope that helps.............................................

I am going to try it. I had a locksmith come out and try to reset it, but he told me when they tried breaking into my car that the the computer automatically has somekind of an error code in it now, and it has to be cleared by the dealership.

The VTD module (Vehicle Theft Deterent) sends a class II message to the PCM to disable theft if someone tries to start without the passkey. You are probably getting the "security" message on your dash right? Well if they didn't fuck up the class II wires on the ignition cylinder, then you should be able to clear this by simply locking and unlocking the doors using your keyfob. If that doesn't clear the "security" light, then they probably ripped the class II wires on the lock cylinder module. There's 5 wires coming from the lock cylinder, orange, pink, black and two purples. Make sure the purple wires aren't torn/ripped. If not, then he might have damaged the whole lock cylinder and it needs changed.

Your insurance won't cover the repair? Or was the cost of the repair less than your deductable, so you just did it yourself?

I was wondering that myself, but I dont blame him for not wanting to pay the deductible and rate hike. Depending on his problem though, he may be better off doing that.
