I finally fixed this one.apparently the theft prevention system was no longer able to measure the resistor in my key.That thing that everyone refers to as a "chip" in the key is only a resistor,one of like 10 or 12 std values that computer is set to recognize. measured key res with meter, cut wires running to ign key contacts that read key and inserted a res = res meas on key.problem solved,theft prevention perm. bypassed! read somewhere the only ones this system prevents from starting car is the owner when it starts malfunctioning......how true
If you remove the starter you can use a pair of jumper cables to see if it is bad . Just hook cables to car battery ( car not running ) and touch ground to casing on starter and the hot to post . If it turns the torque will cause it to want to move if not secured .
