In regards to the 1614 code. You should/could also see code 1610.
P1610- Ignition key/engine control module (ECM) malfunction
P1614- Immobilizer control module (ATS) coding plug communication-no signal. (ATS=anti theft system)
The ECM is getting a signal form 1614 that the key/ignition is not providing a correct code. Hence, the programing is told to fail engine start. Should the engine failing to start with 1 key, try the other key.
Should the Anti Theft System go into lock mode with one key, try the second key. If that does not unlock it then do this: with either key turn the ignition to ON position for 5 seconds then BACK to OFF position for 5 seconds, the to On position for 5 seconds then back to the OFF position for 5 seconds. If the ignition key is and intergrated key (remote: unlock, lock) the batteries should be changed in both keys. Low battery or dead battery provides low or no security code signals to ECM -- hence incorrect or no signal.
When replacing the batteries: be sitting in the drivers seat with the 2 keys within 24 inches of each other. And make the battery change within 1 minute for each key and within 4 minutes of the first key.
If that does not work,Check you users manual for the ignition key sequence on/off series to relearn the on board car computer to the keys.
