Ok, so this morning it was completely dead, not hint of starting at all. Here is what I have found. Both the key and the remote start act the same. Lights come on and everything acts like it'* going to start, then nothing. No starter, and no fuel pump (from what I can hear).
So this morning, wile sitting at home trying to find a ride (still looking by the way if you are in the area
)I tried the key relearn procedure. This works on all models except ones with PRO Z49 - Canadian Modif Mandatory base E (which I do not have, I checked). After the 10 minute wait time for the first key cycle, the security light didn't go off. I waited another 5, light was still on. My guess here is that the VTD is faulty and not able to relearn the key. The only other part that has anything to do with key learning is the part that I just replaced with a new one (exciter module).
My guess is that the VTD is faulty. Any other opinions?
