Unfortunately, there is no easy way to bypass the security system. It was put in place to prevent easy bypass to prevent theft. Anyone posting a way to bypass would diminish the security for all other vehicles. I feel for you but you will likely need a shop to fix it for you (sorry).

A good thought, but dealer can't seem to find a fix; Towed it to shop in full failure mode, and they still were unable to fix it. It eventually "fixed" itself.
