All of the suggestions are great. Resetting the computer by disconnecting the battery should work. If it doesn't, you may need the antenna that fits around the ignition key slot replaced. This item sends a signal to the chip in the key and receives its "resonance" to identify the key as being valid. If this antenna is burned out, the computer can't read the key.
If you want to reset the security system (if so equipped) look here:
It sounds like it thinks the key is still in it all the time. Try turning the key forward to the on position, but not running, so the dinging stops. disconnect the battery. Remove the key completely and reconnect the battery.
Two options you can try. 1st, lock and unlock each door manually with the key including the trunk, then try to start vehicle. 2nd option, with vehicle battery, turn the ignition to the 'on' position, reconnect the battery then try to start the car.
parked dead batteries, Sulphate and die fast, LEAD/ACID CELLS ALL DO THAT .
CAR Is now modified. and you never told the exact product. there are many products, seen them all (pro grade), but you don't know. ex: 1: simple lug switch. ex 2: a fancy device on the battery lug the senses low battery and automatically disonncect it (with emergency bypass) ex.3; some one wild idea ,and NFG. show me photos of wild and i can tell you why it wont work or why it will catch fire.
next time, put the battery on the bench and use a float charger. 24/7
it will last 10 years or more like that.. really.
and thanks for keying those bad guys at bay ! (im a viet nam vet)
to deploy do above float , and fog oil the engine. do what the boaters do.. its not hard to do at all. keeps rings from rusting and valves faces and seats.
ps> a bet way to have a kill switch (not battery type) is add a fuel pump hot wire, kill switch that only you know were it is and is not in the engine bay or in easy sight. best of best. mines behind plastic panels, hint ,hint.
try disconnecting the battery negative with the key in the run position..this kills the computer..then shut the key off and reconnect the negative cable, turn the key to run position and listen for the fuel pump to come on 2-3 seconds try to start..repeat this 2-3 times if still an issue.. repost findings
Hello, I usually stick to Ford brands, but if you were on the Roadside, I would pull over to see what was wrong. First, I would try a small amount of starting fluid to see if there was spark. The engine would either hit or run until the starting fluid was used up.
If the engine did nothing, that would lead me to believe it is a spark issue. Not being familiar with your brand, I would look in the Owners' Manual for mention of an Ignition Relay, PCM Relay or Anti-theft device. I would also read up on any Impact or Collision sensor that may disable the engine. Ford brands interrupt the fuel flow but your Brand may kill the engine.
Try a different Ignition key in case the computer chip broke in your key. Disconnect the Negative Battery cable and hope the brain resets to get you home.
If you can get to Autozone, Oreilys, or Advance, they can scan your vehicle and perhaps pick up the cause of your problem if you did not disconnect the Battery. You may have to call for a Tow truck(USUALLY A FORD BRAND) and get towed to a repair shop.
