Put the key in the ignition, and turn forward all the way just before cranking. Then within 5 seconds, locate, press and hold in the valet/overide button, found under the dash area, (push button, spring loaded)until the installed LED (the blinking light) in your dash area goes on solid, and the siren chirps once (your valet switch might be the toggle (on/off) type. in this case, key on, flip switch in opposite direction, then turn the key off.).

This should reset the alarm, and resetthe grounded relay on the starter wire, allowing you to start the engine.

At this point, the only thing working would be the keyless entry from the alarm, if it came equipped that way.

Just Repeat these steps to place itback to usable armed mode. You may get 2 chirps, confirming it,and the lights may flash twice as well. That should do it.

Hope this help; good luck.

How do you bridge-out the anti-theft security system....it keeps kicking in and shutting down the van after starting


There is a problem detected within the security system by the security module. Try locking and unlocking the door with the key fob to reset the system. Sometimes locking and unlocking the drivers door using the key will reset the system as well. If still no luck, try the spare key to see if the security system accepts it

    Ensure you have "ALL" the wires connected and a fully charged battery. Then use your remote to turn off the anti theft devises and your truck should start with no problems. You may have to switch the anti theft device from your old engine to your new one or take the vin of the new engine to the dealer and get the code for that engine.
