Where is the neutral safety switch located on my 2008 Jeep wrangler?


Sounds like you're starting at the expensive end and working backwards! First, check your battery, make sure it has a good charge. Second step is the starter solenoid. Some designs have external solenoids, some are internal. Third is the starter itself. Once you are sure all that stuff is good, THEN it's time to start looking for the neutral safety switch.

The check engine light is meaningless when the engine is not running.

1998 s-10 security light


If the security light is hot or flashing when the key is in the on position, most likely the ignition key tumbler housing has failed.

You can try resetting the pass code by turning the ignition switch to the on position (do not crank or start the engine). Leave the key in the on position for 10 minutes. Turn the key to the off position, wait 5 seconds and turn the key to the on position again and leave it on for 10 more minutes. Cycle the key to the off position again for 5 seconds the back on for a final 10 minutes. Once the final 10 minutes is complete, turn to the off position again, wait 5 seconds and now turn the ignition on and to the start position. The pass code has now been reset and it should start. If the reset does not work you will have to change the ignition key tumbler housing that contains the key code resistor.
Good luck

Tail lights not working


ck fuse for rear taillights tis under the dash lower left of steering wheel. or if you still have the manual look in there under fuses.
also look for a bad ground but i doubt that.. if it's both rear out.
fast flashing well here's a chart with all sorts of info.
Problem What To Do Turn signals light, but do not flash Replace the flasher No turn signals light on either side Check the fuse. Replace if defective.
Check the flasher by substitution.
Check for open circuit, short circuit or poor ground. Both turn signals on one side don't work Check for bad bulbs.
Check for bad ground In both housings. One turn signal light on one side doesn't work Check and/or replace bulb.
Check for corrosion in socket. Clean contacts.
Check for poor ground at socket. Turn signal flashes too fast or too slow Check any bulb on the side flashing too fast. A heavy-duty bulb is probably installed In place of a regular bulb
Check the bulb flashing too slow. A standard bulb was probably installed in place of a heavy-duty bulb
Check for loose connections or corrosion at the bulb socket Indicator lights don't work in either direction Check If the turn signals are working
Check the dash indicator lights
Check the flasher by substitution One Indicator light doesn't light On systems with 1 dash indicator:
- See if the lights work on the same side. Often the filaments have been reversed In systems combining stoplights with taillights and turn signals
- Check the flasher by substitution On systems with 2 Indicators:
- Check the bulbs on the same side
- Check the indicator light bulb
- Check the flasher by substitution
hope this helps. may want to print for future reference. :)
hope this helps.

My 2008 VW beetle will not start, Turn key nothing happens


A friend made the mistake of laying his keys on the microwave and next morning his car wouldn't start. The microwave radiation or magnetism had erased the code from the transponder chip and would no longer disarm the immobiliser.

Ensuring the immobiliser is disarming is the first step in any non-start situation. Your vehicle handbook will explain how this applies to your car.

I hard wired my light housing and now my turn signal will stay on but it wont blink


Either its a problem with the resistance of the circuit or what i suspect is a flasher unit fault ,i have had this in the past where the hazard switch is faulty and doesnt connect the right connections inside the switch and this causes the problem but when it goes neither side will flash ,if you had wired it up wrong then it would flash very fast and a dim light .

My rear brake light doesnt go off even after i remove the key from the ignition and close doors. What could be the problem?


Take a look under the dash, there is a brake light switch. This switch has a plunger that just touched the downward leg of the brake pedel to keep the lights off while the brake pedel is not pushed in. This plunger sometimes gets cocked sideways in the switch housing and just does not come forward enough to turn the brake lights off. Or it actually slides back a little, or the plunger becomes broken inside the switch housing. There is a panel in the driver's side that can be removed to access this switch to replace or fix. Sometimes a squirt of WD-40 into the plunger shaft housing and a little back and forth motion will fix things. Otherwise the switch has to be replaced.

2001 Chevy Malibu the car cranks but wont start I can hear the whine of the fuel pump coming on when I engage the ignition switch to on position, I can prime it and it will run for a few seconds...


sounds like a security problem-if the light is flashing leave the key turned on for about 10 min. until light stops flashing and then try to start engine-if this works you need to replace the pass loc sensor(ignition cylinder and housing)

2001 Chevy impala had ignition switch replaced, once i turn the key, "security" flashes on screen and car won't start. How do I fix this so that the car will start?


Turn the key to "on" and let the light flash. It should stop flashing after about ten to twenty minutes. Once the light is on steady, turn it off, then start the car. I usually put another battery on jumper cables attached to the cars battery so it does not run down and die before the system re-arms.
