I need to know which PASSLOCK system is to my make and model, and the step by step if how to manually uninstall the security system. I have no money to pay anyone to fix this kind of issue.

Check engine light came on with an evap code (leak). I can hear the fuel pump come on (buzzing) when I try to start the car. I twisted the gas cap and clicked it 5x after filling it. Next day it wouldn't start. The car didn't give me any problems except for the check engine light. Check engine light came on once before and turned off after a few days. This time it came on, got a diagnostic next day, I wouldn't drive it, went to fill up gas tank and 3rd day it wouldn't start.
