    Doesn't crank at all. I posted this a few days ago:
    With the key in the on position i get nothing but a dim "Air Bag" Light and a dim occasionally blinking "Service Engine Soon" light. With the key in the off position i get the chime when the door is open (the door was open when i was trying it) but really fast. When the key is out of the ignition i get a fast clicking from this box (BCM) located under the glove

    I tried a different key, jumping it, and disconnecting the battery to reset the computer. All with no luck.

    did you try swapping the ignition and stater relays?

    if the car cranks but doesn't start after the relay swap you found your problem!

    is your theft light the little red light in your defrost blinking very fast when you the clicking starts? i just had this problem after finishing a lengthy list of installs and i couldnt figure it out i reset the computer and cycled the key a few times without firing and then it started and has ran fine since.
