How do i remove the battery of a 2008 Chrysler Sebring to put a new one


First thing get the code to the radio so that you can turn the radio back on . Turn everything off . Disconnect the earth lead off then the positive lead. Remove the battery hold down strap /clamp and lift battery out. Ensure that the replacement battery has the same poles in the same places or the leads may not fit correctly. Place the battery in position and fit the hold down clamp/strap. Fit positive lead after ensuring that the terminal is shiny clean inside. Fit earth lead after cleaning the terminal . Tighten clamps securely. Turn igniting on and wait a few minutes for the CPU to reprogram. Start engine and wait for the ECM to sort out any losses from the battery removal.. If there are lights tha stay on it may be necessary to have a code reader used to reset the CPU

Car not starting, battery charged by son's car, still wont' start.


More than likely its your ignition switch going or gone bad. Ok, here's what you do, turn the key to the on position but DO NOT CRANK, let the key stay in this position until the security light stops flashing (takes 5 to 10 minutes) then turn the key off and crank it immediately after. If your car cranks then you will need to replace your ignition switch ($120 to $160). Hope this information helps someone. .

Drove through deep water now security stays on in 2000 Tahoe


This is likely a problem with the passlock 2 system created by gm which has had many complaints but never has been recalled. Place key in ignition, turn to ON Position. (do not start). Leave in ON position for Exactly 10 minutes. The light will shut off, Immediately start the vehicle once the light is off.

Changed battery and replaced lost key. Now it won't start


nitabelle57, It sounds like your security system will not recognize the new key you purchased. Keys have a chip in them which has to be recognized by the security system in order to work. The new key has to be programmed by your security system before it will start your vehicle. You will need a battery charger to program the key as this procedure takes thirty minutes to do. Put the charger on the battery. Be sure everything else is turned off. Place the new key in the ignition and turn it to the run position. The security light should come on. After ten minutes the security light should be out, if not proceed anyway. Turn the key to the off position but do not remove it. Wait five seconds and turn it to the run position once again. Wait another ten minutes and turn it off again. Wait five seconds and turn it to the run position once again. After the final ten minutes turn the key off (do not remove it) Wait thirty seconds and then the key should be programmed. If you have any other keys they will not work now as the security system is now programmed for the one key. If you have another key and need it for another driver then start the vehicle with the newly programmed key and let it run for about a minute. Place the extra key in the ignition and turn it to the run position and wait sixty seconds. This should solve that problem. Good luck with this.

I have and oldsmobile 2000 intrigue. i changed the computer and now it wont crank when the key is turned and also the security light is flashing constantly how do i reconcile the new computer to the car?


There is a simple procedure for this.
First of all (and VERY IMPORTANT) is to connect the vehicle to a battery charger. Leave the battery charger on during this entire process.
This procedure takes approximately 30 minutes . Make sure the battery is fully charged before proceeding.
  1. Turn the ignition switch off.
  2. Turn the ignition switch all the way from the off to the start position, then leave it in the on position.
NOTE: The engine will not crank.

  1. The SECURITY will come on and stay on for at least 10 minutes . When it goes out, proceed to step 4.
  2. Turn the ignition switch off for five seconds .
  3. Repeat steps 2, 3, and 4 again for a second time.
  4. Repeat steps 2, 3, and 4 again for a third time.
  5. Turn the ignition switch off.
  6. Turn the ignition switch all the way to the start position. The engine should now start.

We have a 2001 Pontiac Grand Am that will not start. It is getting fuel, has spark and a good battery. Wondering if it is sensors, security. It is throwing an oil pressure switch code and an...


Notice if your SECURITY dashboard light is on when the key has been turned to the on position. If it is then your security feature needs to be reset.
The security feature will often come on when 2 failed attempts to start the car have occured or the battery goes dead or is replaced.
I believe to reset the security feature you have to place the key in the ignition and turn to the on position without starting the car and leaving it there for 10 minutes. Just wait it out and the light will go out. Then take the key out and try restarting.
I've been through this many times. You need a good battery to leave the key on for 10 minutes.
Take it easy!
