Let'* say I sit in front of a pc for work.

The ICM is probably expensive at the parts stores. JY would be your best bet. Make sure and look at yours before you go. All the pins must be present for it to work properly for you.

If you run into a problem..holler..I've got a couple tested 100% here and can priority mail one to ya for testing if needed.

Less than the parts store and better than the salvage yard? Then if its not the ICM what would be next?

Well....it wasn't mentioned...but have you looked at what the security light is doing? It'* odd that all of a sudden it won't start.

System Check procedures -

To begin:
1. Put ignition switch in RUN position (engine NOT running)
2. Close front doors
3. Unbuckle seat belts
4. Set park brake off

"SECURITY" indicator should light for approximately five seconds.


if "Security" indicator remains on or does not operate properly:

Perform PASS-II Diagnostic System Check:
- Check for PCM Diagnostic Trouble Codes
- Attempt to start vehicle
- Note "Security System" indicator while cranking engine.

Did engine start?

No or Yes

The bolts for the coils hold the coils to the ICM. The ICM is the thin black part under the coils with the wiring going to it. The bolts on the coils are 5.5mm
Easiest way to know it'* working!!!
