sorry i didnt see this thread earlier, sounds like your running a pre smart lock ecu, unless it is chipped than the smart lock could be turned off and it could be an ed or el ecu

If you need a replacement, there should be a 4 character catch code on the ECU. Do a site search for catch codes and you should be able to find where it came from.
