    Sorry the code made the radio come back on but it didn't fix the problem. I still can't start the car.

This is an anti-theft measure. Usually, there is a code to input in the radio/display to disable it. If you can't find it in your owner's manual, you'll need to contact a dealer to get the code.

There are some folks who sell the codes online. Beware of scams with that.

SOURCE: Car won't start when key

See the small wire on the solonoid top of the starter body.. it might be disconnected.. if it is connected see the fuse. other option, If you have a ligth bulb connect one wire to small wire on solonoid and body ground second wire of your ligth bulb. spin the ignition key to start position if the light bulb does not light there is a cut wire from the ignition key to solonoid.

SOURCE: lost remote to alarm on 1996 honda civic need to change battery

I had this happen today and called an alarm installer. he said to connect the battery cable (id unhooked it to stop the blaring) then open the door to set off the alarm. then torn on the key ( even tho it wont start the car , turn it on anyway) then look for a toggle switch ( AKA a valet switch) with the key in the on position flip the switch. ( when I did this a noticed a tiny red light come on to the left of the steering column) I turned the toggle back to the original position and then I tried to crank -AND IT CRANKED WITH NO SCREAMING ALARM!!! I was so happy, I had to post this in case it could help someone else.

Put new battery in 2001 Lexus 300ES. Now alarm keeps going off when I unlock door.

Dude, this worked with my GS300. Might help you.

Leave the key in 2nd position, in the steering column for at least 6 minutes. Then remove key. Re-insert key and maybe it will start with no alarm going off.
