    i had the same problem i just replaced the smart key with a new one everything works fine, also take note my reasoning was because not only did it not turn the switch it did not unlock the doors or trunk bad signal i guess , note the new had to sit in the switch for 1 to 2 hours before it programed itself, note it came preprogram from the dealer but i still had to leave it in the switch for that amount of time

This is an easy one, the electrical contacts in the starter motor solenoid are burnt, this causes an intermittent no start, this is a common issue, had it once on my own car, the solenoid can be rebuilt if you are good with cars, otherwise a rebuilt starter is the fix that would be the easiest.

Okay, to program a key you will need two keys that are already programmed, insert one key ignition turned on and engine off, remove the key and within 10 sec insert the second key and turn ignition on with engine off, remove that key and within 10 sec insert the key to be programed. you will need to do a 30 min.relearn with only one key,you will turn ignition on with engine off and wait about 10 min until light goes out then remove the key and repeat this step when light goes out repeat step one more time then use key to start car, computer has learned all info. you will now turn off engine, insert programmed key turn key on engine off then remove the key and insert key to be programed within 10 sec.all done good day.

I have a 1995 ford f350 turbo diesel snow truck, and when i turn the key dosent start and makes like a clik clik under the hood


Okay, If this noise happens when you turn the Key to start, your Starter Relay is bad. Now the other possibility is the Glowplug Timer. When you start a Diesel there is a pause in the initial cold start. You turn the Igniition Key to Run, then let the Glowplug Timer cycle. This cycle sound will be a series of clicks which also may cause the lights to dim.

The glowplugs absolutely must warm up to start a cold diesel engine. There should be a light on the dash which either goes off when the glowplugs are ready or a light will turn on when they are ready. It is only after that activity that you will turn the Key to Start.

Since Diesels take more power to Start, there are 2 batteries. As with a single battery system, every connection must be clean. If the Glow-plug Timer is working and you only get clicks by turning your Key to Start, check the things I said earlier. Your Starter Relay and the big cable connections.

If after all of that, the engine will not turn over and only clicks, jump the Starter Relay with 1 cable from a jumper cable set from the Positive Battery cable post to the Starter Relay on the Starter wire connector. Make sure the truck is in Park or Neutral. If the Starter jumper cable sparks and the Starter does not turn, the Starter is bad. If the Starter spins it confirms the Relay is bad.

I hope my Solution gets you going and that you consider this helpful.

How do I reprogam keys for my 03 Buick Rondezvous. We lost a key a few years ago and last year bought a new key (to have a spare). The car dealership had said that I needed to bring both keys &...


Insert key and turn ignition to on position. Wait untill the "security" light goes out (about ten minutes). Turn key off. do not remove. repeat this step two more times. After third time remove key. You should now be able to start vehicle. To program the spare use the already programed key and turn it to the on possition (dont start) then off. remove key and insert spare and turn to the on position. Wait for "security light to go out then turn key off. Both keys should now be programmed.

I just got a key for my 1998 cadillac sts but it will not start the car what do i do? It will open the doors and the alarm goes off but the car will not start.


Leave key in ignition and turn to ON (do not start) Leave in on position for exactly 10 minutes. After 10 minutes is up and your anti-theft light is off, then immediately start the car.
Sometimes the key also need to be reprogrammed for the car.
insert the key and turn the key to "on". The DIC will say "Remove Key, Starting Disabled", and the security light will remain on.

approx. 10 minutes later. Remove the key. wait 10 seconds and repeat this another two times, for a total of 30 minutes "key-in" time.

Now insert your key and start the engine.

To learn additional keys:
Start the engine up with a working key. Shut the engine off, and within 10 seconds, insert the next key you want to learn and turn it to "ON". When the security light goes out, that key is programmed. Repeat for the next key, up to 10 keys can be programmed per car.

My 1990 chevy silverado suddenly wont start. It started just fine until this afternoon and suddenly doesn't even turn over. What can I do?


when you turn the key you should hear an electric clik sound from under the steering column. If not your ignotion switch is bad, not the cylinder where the key goes but the switch. If you do hear a click, then check your starter soleniod. This happened to me 3 weeks ago and it was my starter.

first check the battery, should have at least 10.43 volts under a load for about 10 to 15 seconds, are the cable ends clean and tight and corrosion free, is the ground cable connected to a good ground and is it frayed or partially cut anywhere. also how old is the battery, 4 or 5 years old, it may be time to change it. If all of the above is good, then its a good possibilty you need a new starter. two factors here, the age of the vehicle and the milage, if it is high. most japanese models, especially hondas will make a click at the starter and solenoid if the starter is defective, but only one click each time the key is turned. good luck and let me know if you have any other problems. thanks
