My wife got her purse stole with the only van key in it, so we had to put new ignition in it and they told me at Advanced Auto Parts that if the battery was unhooked while installing the new ignition the computer would reset itself to the new ignition, well it didn't so I need some kind of code they said. Can you help me with this?

your anti theft device is activated,you need to lock and unlock your doors a couple times with the key fob,not the key,and then you need to put the key in the ignition and start it,if you dont have your key fob,call your car dealer to get a new one,they are programmed for each car only,you cannot bypass it.
It is hard to give a definite answer because I don't know which and how many wires were damaged...Anti theft can be a real HEADACHE.....You can begin by disconnecting battery cables..Use your VIN number for parts,Get new ignition with a programmed factory key from dealer only.....They probably blew certain fuses and or relays when this happened...Or maybe not..Install new ignition connect battery cables..,turn switch on just to check for bad fuses and relays...Disconnect battery again...replace any fuses blown...Connect battery again...( Each time you disconnect battery it resets the computer system and should clear anti theft codes..)..make sure all doors are unlocked by using door remote key fob....Now see if vehicle will crank..If all is done correctly it should start...However I don't know how much damage was done.....It may possibly be too much work to totally disengage anti theft....You could start with removing all fuses and relays related to anti theft but disconnect battery before...I DO NOT RECOMMEND trying to disable the theft system.....You may create more headaches that you want.......Begin by trying what I described just to be safe...!!....
cant turn off problem you can try another key.put key in the ignition turn on position for 3 seconds the security light should turn off.then turn off ignition switch wait 5 to 10 seconds try start vechicle if still fails to start.problem in the theft security system.dealership has to code scan problem could be in the ignition switch which is antenna ring.problem could be transponder key or problem could be in the immobilizer control module and ECM.
YOU HAVE TO GO TO DEALERSHIP.THEY WILL HAVE TO GET YOU REPLACEMENT KEYS USING IGNITION LOCK NUMBER OR USING ORIGINAL PATTERN.WHEN YOU GET THE NEW KEY.JUST PUT NEW KEY IN THE IGNITION SWITCH.TURN IGNITION SWITCH TO THE ON POSITION FOR 10 MINUTES UNTIL THEFT SECURITY LIGHT TURN OFF OR DISAPPEAR.THEN TURN OFF IGNITION SWITCH WAIT 10 SECONDS TRY STARTING THE VECHICLE IF THEFT LIGHT STILL ON.YOU WILL NEED DEALERSHIP TO USE A DIAGNOSTIC EQUIPMENT TO CODE SCAN AND ERASE THEFT SECURITY CODE.
if everything was changed correctly then you may have to have the new key programed to the bcm(anti-theft) so it will recognize the new key and switch,if it has this.if not then something was over looked when changing,
