Possibly engine temp sensor. If the sensor is malfunctioning, it could be telling the engine management that the engine is hot, when infact its cold. This would cause the management system to lean the fuel mixture off, not giving it the rich mixture needed to start a cold engine. After a few turns, its built up a bit of fuel in the cylinders which richens it enough to get it running eventually. Any decent garage can put a computer on your car, and look at the live data. They will be able to see what the sensor is reading in relation to the engine actual temp.

MY 2003 DODGE DAKOTA SECURITY LIGH STAYS ON


Maybe this will help:
From the owners manual:

SENTRY KEY IMMOBILIZER - IF EQUIPPED
With this system, an electronically coded ignition key
sends a signal to the vehicle electronics. If the electronics
recognizes the signal, the vehicle will start and continue
to run. If the system does not recognize the signal, the
vehicle will start and run for 2 seconds, then shut off.

After six unsuccessful attempts at starting, the system
will shut down until the correct key is used.

That's exactly what happened when I cut a new key and tried to start the truck without programming the key. So it looks like your truck is not recognizing the key.
If you have another key, try that one.

Or, try and disconnect the battery for a while, that clears up a lot of electrical problems.

My Renault Clio III screetches when I try and press twice to deadlock the car. I can press once to lock. Then this morning I went to get out of the car and the driver's door would not open.


Yes a renault trait iam afraid ,ignore the screech noise they all do it ,unlock and lock the car three times slowly then on the thrid attempt jump in and start the car within 10 secs or so and it should reset the alarm ,do not use the deadlock thing and if you can get the transponder bypassed before it packs up costing a lot of dosh ,their is a way of cutting a certain wire which does this once the engine is running ,these cars are quite good mechanically but the electrics and this alarm thingy leave a lot to be desired especialy that card thing with no key slot ,the bain of my life customers with a renault ,try changing the starter motor?

If you are dealing with the anti theft the anti theft will flash as you are trying to start the vehicle if this is the case then it is the anti theft if not then you are not dealing with a ant theft issue.

How to rekey a pontiac sunfire 2004


Im assuming you are refering to the anti theft security key relearn process.

1. Perform a security system relearn.
2. Let the vehicle sit for more than 10 minutes with the key off.
3. Attempt to start the engine, leave the key in the run position monitoring the security system indicator.
4. After 10 minutes, the security indicator will change state.
5. Turn the key off and wait 10 seconds.
6. Attempt to start the engine. If the engine stalls, wait another 10 minutes with the key on.
7. After the second 10 minute timer has expired, turn the key off for 10 seconds.
8. Attempt to start the engine. If the engine stalls, wait another 10 minutes with the key on.
9. After the 3rd 10 minute timer has expired, shut the key off for 10 seconds.
10. The security system will relearn on the 4th starting attempt and the engine should start and run.

If that doesnt work, look into this link http://vatspasslockpasskeysecurityhelp.yolasite.com/

Programing a key fob


1. Perform a security system relearn.
2. Let the vehicle sit for more than 10 minutes with the key off.
3. Attempt to start the engine, leave the key in the run position monitoring the security system indicator.
4. After 10 minutes, the security indicator will change state.
5. Turn the key off and wait 10 seconds.
6. Attempt to start the engine. If the engine stalls, wait another 10 minutes with the key on.
7. After the second 10 minute timer has expired, turn the key off for 10 seconds.
8. Attempt to start the engine. If the engine stalls, wait another 10 minutes with the key on.
9. After the 3rd 10 minute timer has expired, shut the key off for 10 seconds.
10. The security system will relearn on the 4th starting attempt and the engine should start and run.
If this doesnt work, you may have a failure in your system. If the security light is on, and the reprogram doesnt work, you might want to look into bypassing that antitheft system.

A few weeks ago i started my 84 S10. It normally starts fine. After i turned it off i tried to turn it back on and it wont do anything. everything works like the radio and everything. When i turn the key...


This sounds like you may have a starter issue. Have someone in the vehicle to try cranking and hold it in this position. You go underneath and attempt to tap the starter with a small hammer to see if it frees it up. If it does, replace your starter. Let me know if you need anything further.

Will not start. Engine does not turn over no electrical system working - tried to jump battery no change?


First , check the LED on your car battery, if it is blank you made need to remove and test the actual battery. If there is ANY chance that sparks flew when attempting to boost the car open the fuse box and check the fuses including the large ones.
Third, try a different key, including your flat wallet key in case your key has also failed due to a weak internal battery and will not communicate with the engine immobilizer.
To use your 'wallet key" hold the black card against the dash beside the key slot while turning the key in its slot. This key has an embedded security chip in it as well to allow the engine to start.
If your RX is a 2010, hold the wallet key or your black key fob to the dash beside the ignition button and wait for the LED on dash to turn green. Then push the button.

Post back to advise how you make out.

How do you star a 98 chavy malibu with tha anti theft light on


Here is what you do. make sure the battery is fully charged cause you dont want it to go dead during this process or it wont work. step down on your parking brake pedal and leave it down. this will keep the headlights off during the process so the battery wont go dead. turn the ignition key like you were going to start the car then leave the key in the on position. you have to leave the key in the on position for ten minutes. during the ten minutes you will see the anti theft or security light flashing or the display in the instrument cluster. when the ten minutes are up the security light will go out. once the light goes out attempt to start the car. if it doesnt start turn the key all the way back to the off position count to three then attempt to start the car then leave the key in the on position another ten minutes till the light stops flashing again. sometimes it takes up to three ten minute cycles to reset the antitheft system. so basically you do the same thing three times leaving the key in the on position for ten minutes each time so it will take approximately thirty minutes. sometimes it will work on the first try though.
