My 1998 Toyota corolla won't crank at all (not even a clicking). The lights, radio, and other accessories come on--no inidication that it's the battery. I had been having issues with the alarm going off...


Hi I hope this helps I had the exact same problem with my 1998 toyota. I think its the ignition switch, or the ignition itself. That's what ended up being the problem with mine.

sounds like there is a short somewhere. you need to start checking things with a multi meter, could be a bad switch. I would recommend picking up a factory service manual for your vehicle off of ebay. If you need any further assistance let me know.

This could be the BCM or Body Control Module that has gone bad or needs to be reset.

Starter wont crank with ignition key


Well, if you have a problem with the security system not allowing you to crank, then you have a problem that can be fixed only by the dealer.

Check your key and verify that it doesn't have a dirty or wet resistor on the security ignition key. This is a common problem with this type of security system.

Good luck on fixing this problem.

Security light flash no security system on truck


sometimes turning the ignition on 3 times quickly without starting will reset the computer. If the van has power locks and keyless entry then try using only the keyless entry. Sometimes your car wont have a alarm but an anti theft device which will not allow it to start if it goes off or something triggers it.

Engine won't start. Dash lights flash rapidly when key turned.


the battery says 12 volts but may be dropping to 4 or 5 under a load...i would suggest jumpstarting the car and see what happens.the battery should read in the high 12 volts and not less than 9.5 under cranking. the dash lights go out on your car when starting,and the alarm will go off ,and disable the ignition if the voltage is too low in cranking the car because the computer will shut it down and activate the anti theft.....check your battery posts are tight. best of luck

Can you give me the instructions for programming the remote for a 1999 Jaguar XJ8. Thanks! Alan Broyles


  1. Hold headlight flasher back.
  2. Turn ignition key to position 1.
  3. Flash headlights 4 times. Alarm will enter programming mode. This will be confirmed by "beeps" from the alarm and flashing led on gearshift. Program each transmitter (up to 5) by pressing the lock or unlock button on the each transmitter once. The alarm will "honk" when you press the transmitter button. The alarm must honk 5 times to complete the programming. Therefore, if you are only programming one transmitter you should operate the transmitter 5 times. If you are programming two transmitters you will operate one transmitter twice, and three times on the other. For five transmitters you will operate each transmitter once.

99 chevy lumina wont crank!


you probably have a broken wire in the ignition that reads the resistance in the chip in the key. there are two wires that attach the ignition switch to the security system.I had the same problem and it can be easily fixed by putting a resister in place of the chip in the key.any garage that puts alarm systems in cars will be able to do this very easily and very economically.
