Is there any noise at all coming from the starter when you try to crank it, even a loud click? Yes this vehicle has a transponder key. There will be a code PK3 stamped into the shank of the key to confirm that. However, if the security system is the cause of the no crank, then the SECURITY lamp would be illuminated or flashing while trying to start the engine. The light should illuminate for two seconds when the key is turned to "on" and then should go out and stay out, even while cranking.
