You need to check to see if the theft light is on with key in the on position? If it is then you may need to have the theft system checked and may need to reprogram the system using the dealer level scanner or equal. If theft light is not on then you will need to have the computer and fuel pressure checked to see if there is codes stored or no fuel pressure.
