I CAN HELP YOU. DISCONNECT THE BATTERY FOR 5 MINUTES. RECONNECT AND USE YOUR KEY TO LOCK THE CAR. THEN OPEN THE CAR WITH YOUR KEY. THAT RESETS THE SECURITY SYSTEM. GOOD LUCK.

My 2006 Ford F-150, V-6 engine, will start but only stays running for a few seconds, then bogs out. Battery is new.


A few seconds, or like 2 seconds. Is the security like flashing? The light could be a red dot on the top of the dash. Have the codes read, takes a scanner. Check engine light on when it is running, Also check the codes, code reader will do this. Does the engine just shut off or does it bog down, like sputter till it dies?

2002 chevy corvette wont turn over


first ensure good baytery and connections both at battery and connecting points . check all fuses associated with starting and security ignition etc... check dash lights in run position if on proceed if off look into that first. check to see if the security light comes on for a few seconds and goes off. if it does then proceed to start/ if security light stays on or flases continiously then look into security issue. if when key is in crank over or start position listen to hear if you can hear starter relay/ solinoid on starter try to enguage if not trying to start check neutril safety and or clutch swich is working etc if all this is checking out ok use test light and see if when in start position there is power at solonoid wire( the small wire on starter by itself) if not try jumping power to it bu make sure in park and or neutril position or car may leave you if starts not a funny seen!! good luck!!

Car Wont Start


If you check your battery cables they might be dirty with acid also the starter wire might be loose on the starter if u get a screw driver and turn your key on cross the starter out it might start that way if it does then that means u might need a starter hope it helps

2001 aurora won't start at all. Hook batery up horn horn sounds and doesn't stop head lights stay on but nothing happens when the key is inthe ingition. No clicking or anything at all. alarm on...


The security system does not disable the starter, it only disables fuel to the engine. In the fuse block under the hood, locate the STARTER relay. Place your hand on this relay and see if it clicks while someone else turns the key to start...if the relay is ok then the starter itself is faulty. Good luck, i hope this helps.

Car wont turn over


if the security light comes on when you turn the key to the run position (just before you reach the start position) and doesnt go off after a few seconds it is a security system issue, which is real common on that vehicle, you would have to replace the ignition lock cylinder along with the passkey wiring, but if you just leave the key in the run position for like 20 minutes the light will turn off and you can turn the key forward and start the vehicle, YOU WILL HAVE TO DO THIS EVERYTIME YOU WANT TO START THE CAR. If the security light does not stay on for more than a few seconds your probably looking at a bad starter and its under the intake manifold so its real fun to change

1994 gp 3100 ,wont start, turn key getting all the dash lites but starter not engaging, security lite is flashing, the car was drove to my hse i know it runs any ideas, battery is new, key is a #7.with key...


You need to set the parking brake, Turn the key on let it sit like that for 10 mins. the sec light will either start flashing or will stay on or go off when done (This will reset)
REPEAT 3 times!
Then you should be able to start the car after the 3rd time!

Key Does Not Work


It could be that chip inside key just went bad. Do u have a 3rd key? That works? If so take the 2 good keys and turn the igntion to run postion for 3 secs each then do the same for the 3rd key and this will reprogram it if the chip is ok. If you do not have 2 good keys then u will have to have a scan tool that will link up with PATS system and perform security access to reprogram it.
