Happens all the time to me. I trigger the Theft System by accident then the car won't start. try this: Put the key in the ignition. Turn it to the "on" setting,but don't try to start the engine. Let it sit for 10 minutes until the Security light stops blinking and turns off. Take the key out and restart. Warning - don't have your lights, radio,etc on while you do this or the battery may die.

open your hood, have someone shift from reverse to drive with the parking brake set and watch how much the engine moves, my suspicion is that one or more of the engine mounts are broken, making it look like the engine wants to jump out of its 'home'- moving more the an inch or so then going into gear...pinpoint the broken mount and replace. :)

This usually works.Lock the doors with the remote.Press lock twice sounding the alarm.Then press the unlock button twice.Your car should start now.If that doesnt work try this,Lock the car again with the remote once.Go over to the passenger side door and use the key to unlock the door then press in the door unlock all doors.Hopefully by now it worked.Now if none of these work your security probably malfunctioned and theres only two things that will work,One is disconnecting the battery for 5 mins then reconnecting.unlock doors.the start.If that doesnt work you'll have to take it to the dealer to get the security reset or replaced.The steps I have wrot you are the diagnostics to reset it.I hope these work for you and good luck.See ya had have a great day..

Allow the engine to cool before removing the spark plugs. Attempting to remove spark plugs from a hot engine can cause the spark plugs to seize. This can damage the cylinder head threads. Clean the spark plug recess area before removing the spark plug. Failure to do so can result in engine damage due to dirt or foreign material entering the cylinder head, or in contamination of the cylinder head threads. Contaminated threads may prevent proper seating of the new spark plug. Use only the spark plugs specified for use in the vehicle. Do not install spark plugs that are either hotter or colder than those specified for the vehicle. Installing spark plugs of another type can severely damage the engine.
WARNING Do not coat spark plug threads with anti-seize compound. If anti-seize compound is used and spark plugs are over-torqued, damage to the cylinder head threads may result.
