you cant,call your dealer,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.
A good lock smith can obtain the code required from a book or the dealership as a certified lock smith and cut you a key and program the code into it that will by pass the clicker. This key will work fine in the ignition and locks just they did in times past. If there is a problem with the receiver part in the switch itself, then a new switch is in order with a new key or/and clicker. If you are a trained electronic expert, there may be a way to take the switch out and bypass the receiver. Apparently you are a DIYer so the first option would work. If the second option , you probably wouldn't be asking here. Hope it works for you
If your vehicle was towed, check the fuel pump intertia switch located near the top of the passenger side kick panel.
if you changed the key, you will be having an antitheft problem.
you could try putting an original key at the lock cylinder while turning the new key, it may allow it to start... if so, new key will require programming, or have the new lock cylinder coded to the old keys.
possible bad button on key fob.unlock button good lock button bad .get a new clicker you can program it yourself ....put key in ignition turn back and forth 10 times while holding the unlock button on remote.that should work
SOUNDS LIKE THE ANTI-THEFT HAS ACTIVATED TRY LOCKING AND UNLOCKING DRIVERS DOOR WITH KEY IF THIS DOES NOT WORK OPEN HOOD AND DISCONNECT BATTERY TERMINALS FROM BATTERY TAKE THE POSITIVE AND NEGATIVE CABLES AND TOUCH THEM TOGETHER AND HOLD TEN SECONDS THIS WILL KILL THE (KAM) KEEP ALIVE MEMORY IN THE COMPUTER AND MAY RESET RECONNECT BATTERY TERMINALS AND TRY TO START HOPE THIS HELPS
