Question about 1995 Buick Regal

1 Answer

Anti-theft problem? My daughter got in the car, as soon as she put the key in, the horn started blowing and would not stop. The key would not come out and the brake felt like it was locked (?). She could start the car but I don't know if it would drive or not, she didn't try. A security guard unplugged the horn (in the engine compartment , I think) At that point everything then started behaving as normal again. He plugged the horn back in and it started blowing again. She is 1800 miles away so I can't do any troubleshooting myself. There are guys near that I would trust but I want to do as much up front as possible before asking them to do any work on the car.

It sounds like the ignition cylinder has worn, when you try to stick anything into the ignition besides the key it respond by freezing the system. due to the cylinder being worn the key does not fit correctly, then the ignition picks up on this and tells the car it's being stolen.replace the ignition cylinder(lock and tumbler) and it should be fine. this usually happens when the keys are too heavy and causes the key to pull downward and dent the cylinder

How do you Dismantle the theft alarm 2002 -T-Bird


You can't do that. You need to have it scanned and the problem needs fixed. Could be the key, the receiver, the module, or a broken wire. A new key has to be programmed to the car and the same for the module.

I'm trying to put in a new battery in my 94 acura legend but the horn goes off non stop what should i do to fix it so i can start the car


Sounds like a anti theft. Put your key in the ignition but not in the start. just put it in. See if you can remove the battery now without the horn going off. If you can also find the horn and un hook it. there should be a connection clip if you trace the wire down.

Hope that helps

2006 CHRYSLER VAN PUT KEY IN TO CRANK AND HORN BLOWS AND WILL NOT CRANK


This can be a tough one but in all probability the problem will be in your anti theft system. Try this, have someone boost the battery. The engine should turn over and the horn will sound. When it starts use your key fob to lock and unlock the doors. That should reset your alarm system. In all probability your battery needs replacing. Try that. Good luck.

Rx8 2008-My battery was dead after being stored for 5 months. I did not not disconnect the battery (I know I should have). I had my battery jumped with my husband's car. As soon as I connected the cables...


You should have disconnected the battery and fully charged it before starting the car.
The low voltage may have damaged some of the electronic components in the alarm system.
Charge the battery fully, then reconnect it and see if that helps.

Turn ignition key and motor starts up, next day turn ignition key and motor just turns over and wont start. could it be anti theft problem its a 2002 f150 4 wheel drive with 4.6 liter


This could be caused by either a faulty Crank Shaft Position Sensor or the anti-theft system. Try put key in, turn to ON position for EXACTLY 10 minutes, As SOON as anti-theft light shuts off or stops flashing, then IMMEDIATELY start the engine.

You may have a faulty ingition. Otherwise you have the very common GM anti-theft system. If you have a flashing anti-theft light with key in igniton, then this is what you should do:

Put key in ignition, turn to ON position (Do NOT Start)
Leave in on position for EXACTLY 10 Minutes
Then while watching the anti-theft light, as SOON as the light turns off after 10 minutes, START CAR IMMEDIATELY after light turns off.

This will reset the anti-theft
