That red light has to do with the alarm system of the vehicle. This system uses a key with a small chip located in the key head. When you start the vehicle the alarm recieves a signal from the key. If the alarm is not seeing this signal it will cut off power to the engine and that red light will appear. While there are a few possible reasons this can occur I think the best place to start is with the key. Did you recently get new keys made?
My guess is it has something to do with the anti theft security system. This is the system that has to do with that little black chip in the shaft of you key. Is the SECURITY light lit up on the dash when you put the key in? If you see it at all, this is your problem. Check this link for info http://vatspasslockpasskeysecurityhelp.yolasite.com/ and answers to the problem.
This is close to imposible, you would need a scan tool to reprogram a need chip code into the computer, now if theres no chip the power locks or the door lock should deactivte the alarm system, if you dont have a door key then you would need to remove the door panel and manualy turn linkake on the lock as if it were the key, but i think the 2000 had a key chip.
Ok, If it is the Factory Key, It should have the Plastic Finger grip at the Top. This Finger Grip has a Transponder Chip inside that Tells the Ignition that the Key is the Correct Key for this car, Go ahead and Start. These Transponders do Stop working Sometimes. If you will take the Key to the Dealer they can Reprogram the Key to work for you. But, It has to be the Factory key for this. If you have had a Key made, The key will not have the Chip inside it and will only work on the Doors. Please Rate my Response, I need all the Help That I can Get! Thanks!
This had been done many times before....
But it is VERY involved and you HAVE to know what your doing. To bypass the little "chip" in the key, you have to know its resistance value in ohms, then you get a resistor of the exact same value and put it in-line in the wire that reads the chip in the ignition. Then you have tricked the system into thinking that the right key is always there. Like I said you have to know what wire it is, what kind of resistor, and what value to put in. However the payoff is no more expensive keys....keys without the chip will now start the car, sience you have tricked the passkey system into thinking the key has the chip in it.
