One temporary solution when the car wont start :
transponder being in the car : dont press the brake pedal ,press once
the start button to enter proper mode ,
then push and hold the start button for 10 seconds ,
at 11 seconds the motor will start.
I know 2 sources for the wontstart situation :
1) the brake switch refuses
to send the ok to the computer .
2) the fuse that controls the brake lights is burnt-loose- or something
is wrong along this circuit.
this fuse is found in the motor compartiment.
I have a post about this problem , when your problem get
fixed make this test : remove this fuse and see the exact problem re-appear...
it makes a perfect thief deterrent if you park for a long period...
