Did you get that
Automotive Expert
File is not working. What is the file? So what does the truck do exactly? Does the ignition turn on? Does the engine turn over and not start?

engine not startWhen I cross jump it it did start until the fuel in the injectors was out
Automotive Expert
You jumped it backwards?

We think the security system locked it
Automotive Expert
You should never jump start anything backwards. You can damage control units. So if you jumped it backwards, you will need to check all fuses and Main Fusible link to see if any are blown! This does not sound like a security system. Does the Head lights work? Hazard Lights work and Horn work?
