Have your wheels checked for balance. That is the small weights on the rims. If it is not balanced, you will feel the steering wheel vibrate. It can also be a bend rim. Have the tires checked at a tire shop.

Remove the coolant reservoir,2 nuts. You don't have to drain it or remove the hose. Set it out of the way. Take the belt off. They make a tool for this. You can usually rent one from a parts store. 1 bolt at the front of the alternator and 2 on the side by the fire wall to remove All 3 are 15 MM bolts.. Pull it loose and out some. remove the plug and power wire. I don't remove the battery cable, but you might want to. Negative side.

The main wire from the alternator to the battery is not making connection,just run another one to the positive side of the battery,to the large wire on the alternator,leave the other one on the alternator,just add this one,use as big of wire,or larger,a small cable will do nicely.

It uses a rolling code which means it changes every time and prevents anyone else from gaining access to your vehicle. The transmitter and the body control module have to be synchronized to send and recieve signals in the right order. I believe you have to get it re-synchronized at the dealer. They have special tools to communicate with your car.

When you say it is "pushing out coolant" you should be able to identify where the coolant is coming from. If the coolant is leaking beneath the vehicle from the firewall, it is a leaking heater core. If there is no evidence of leak but the coolant is disappearing, and there is white smoke coming from the tailpipe when the vehicle is running, it is a bad head gasket.

This may be related to the antitheft system The system is known for turning off the starter and/or injectors when it fails. Is there a light on the dash that says SECURITY? This is a common problem worth looking into.
