Red light car symbol and engine not starting

looks like the immobilizer has been activated or the ignition key you are using either is wrong or lost the program and can not communicate with the ignition switch by not giving signal to start. Better to apply to an expert to help you.

Bought 2012 Fiat 500 Pop that has front end damage. Key stuck.

To remove the key, you take off the steering wheel covers. Underneath, there is a red tab to push in. Push in the red tab and remove key. Fuel cut off is your next problem. You use your directionals to reset the airbag module to turn on fuel. The procedure is listed in the owners manual under " in case of accident"

There is a light flashing with a a key symbol in it. when i put key in ignition it goes off

It's the security system. That is a symbol for the security system of the car, you can deactivate it by placing the key in the key slot.

You should get that symbol anytime the key is away and the doors are closed. It's normal.

Hope helps (remember rated this answer).

After changing the front seats in a bmw mini cooper, the red air bag light remains permenantly do i turn it off?

Hi, BMWs have a history of showing unnecessary light alerts on the dashboard ...especially if they have outlived their roadlife. You need to check is there is any opening in your airbag windows...if none, simply ignore will turn off itself with time.

Air bag light on

these cars like other budget cars have a life expectancy and being over 10 yr old its very close to being all over red rover [nearly not worth fixing ] if you can legally operate the car in your country without airbags then i would suggest you get the car serviced and if they fail the airbag test get the airbags deactivated , or pay to get the airbags roadworthy . but if you bought the car 2nd hand maybe the car has been in an accident and the airbags removed and not replaced which means you have never had airbags anyway .
