My name is ***** ***** I am a professional here at Just Answer. I noticed that your question had not received a response and thought I would see if you still need help with this.I apologize for the delay and I hope I can still assist you with this here.

This is a fault code for the security system with a fault with the theft transponder in your vehicle.This would need to be diagnosed and tested further to verify that the transponder needs replaced which is usually the most likely cause.
