We have tried to reset passlock and the 10 minute and the 30 minute nothing has worked. The car would not start before we change battery but lights and radio and widows went down fine. We think maybe we locked it when the batttery was almost dead. Please help us. Thanks

    Will the scanner clear the codes and let the car start?
