    Can't start my car

    Since I got my car from the dealer I couldn't start my car all day today, is there a way to reset this?

    Do yo have the remote start option? Check the manual, there is (at least on the remote start vehicles) a small key socket on the center console next to the shifter, under a small pop-off cover. You may be able to reset it from there.

    No it's not. The socket is below the gear shift. Try pulling the positive terminal off your battery for a couple of minutes and then reattaching it. I'd also take it back to your dealership - something they did while replacing your gas tank isn't right.

    I don't see a socket below, I'll try the battery terminal. What the **** is that button underneath that cover for though?

    The button under the cover allows you to override the gear shift movement locks. You have to press and hold the button while moving the gear shift. The key socket for the remote start reprogramming is under the front of the hand brake. There's a small "coin holder" depression under the front of the hand brake and below the gear shift area that has a removable floor. The socket is under that floor.
