Either you assumption is correct, could need a new key, or the ignition has went bad, try the key first if it does not solve it, replace the ignition.

Flashing red dot on my dash for 2002 caravan and wont start


It sounds like the car is not recognizing the key. That red light is the anti-theft indicator. Sometimes due to batteries dying in the key fob or car itself this can happen. The car and key essentially loose track of each other. It can also be a problem with the vehicles control module. This is a situation where you are pretty much stuck with taking it to a Dodge dealership where they can hook it to a scan tool or reprogram a key, depending on what the exact issue is.

When the battery in the key stops working what can happen?


Sounds as if the van lost that code for the PATS(Passive Anti-Theft System) key. You will have to have it programmed again. Some well equipped key and lock shops may be able to do this, otherwise off to the dealer.

Sometimes car will start and immediately die out. If I wait a couple hours or a day, then it will just start back up.

Van starts and then dies like it has no fuel,then starts again and does same thing?THEN AFTER AN HOUR OR SO IT STARTS FINE I HEARD IT WAS AN ANTI THEFT DEAL


If you had any transmission repair done to the car check that they tighten the crankcase cencer down proper, some times the just start the bolt in and forget to tighten it, and you never know if it will start or not, also it will just stop running as you are driving or making a fast turn

My dodge carvan won't start after 3 attempts. it will run and then die. the alarm system will then light up. does someone have a quick fix


Put key in ignition (do not start) for EXACTLY 10 minutes. As SOON as the anti-theft lights shuts off, IMMEDIATELY start van.

This is a very common problem in GM vehicles.

There is a Passlock or Passlock2 anti-theft system. You can buy a bypass kit with instructions for it.

2002 malibu anti theft problem


With the car RUNNING cut the yellow wire to the ignition switch from the group of three wires.
Make sure the car is RUNNING when the wire is cut.
Tape the ends and thats it.....the car will start first time from now on....as long as you don't mind not having anti theft.

No not at all. The problem may be with the anti-theft system. Sometimes in older cars, especially Dodges', the theft system starts to act up even though you put the key in the ignition. You may want to have it checked out at the dealership, shouldn't cost that much just to have it looked at.
