Disconnecting and reconnecting the battery cables sets up the security alarm system which is part of the flashing lights. To stop the flashing, insert your key into the drivers side door lock and and turn to the unlock position. This will also stop any unwanted security alarms.

Door Open light blinks rapidly making a clicking noise when trying to start the car and will not turn over. No lights except for the one flashing very quickly.


Sounds like you have either a dead battery or a bad connection on the positive/negative terminals or the starter motor or the ground to body connection? It is also possible for the cable to have corrosion built up inside the insulation causing a resistance? Clean your battery terminals first then if a charger is unavailable using booster cables connect the positive cable to the dead battery then the positive cable to the jumper battery then connect the negative cable to dead battery and positive cable to jumper battery and attempt to start the car if same conditions then the xonnections may either be loose or corrosion hampering voltage to be supplied efficiently! A digital voltmeter will or should show a 12-volt reading on the battery if less than 12-volts the battery needs to be charged or replaced?

No high beams, even to flash.


You can try this, it worked on a friend of mines ES 300 with the similar problem, Disconnect the wires from the battery clean the terminals on the battery, Now instead of connecting the cables back to the battery connect the cables to each other- While the cables are connected this way make sure that they DO NOT come in contact with ANYTHING metallic on the car. Leave the cables connected this way for at least 20 minutes, then reconnect the cables back to the battery, make sure you have your radio code before you disconnect the battery,

What is worng whit my transmission


#1. Check battery voltage and battery cables. Voltage should be between 13.6 / 14.4 Volts.
#2. Follow all ground connections & make sure everything is snug.

90% of the time, the M and S will flash do to a loose batt cable or a loose ground somewhere, or even a dying battery that needs replaced.

My 2000 Ford ranger wont start My 4x4 lights started flashing so I pulled and checked the fuses but all were good Then went to start the truck and all I hear is the relay click one time as I turn the key...


Suggest you look at battery 1st Remove Earth cable normally + sign, check the cable connection to the battery is clean inside & wire brush the battery where the cable fits see if that is your problem, only other thing is the battery no longer holding it's charge IE: you may need new battery. Best Wishes, Malcolm Campbell.

99 subaru forester. No power at all. When I wiggle negative battery cable : power comes back and alarm is triggered. But power fails again if I turn key or touch brake pedal. How do i fix this?


Bad battery (have the battery tested) Bad connection, corrosion on the terminal and in the cable, replace the cable, recharge the battery to full charge.

Intermittent flashing of the battery charger


Check your battery cable connections first. If they are tight then have the battery tested. If the battery tests good then most likey your alternator is starting to fail.

Security lights flashing after battery cable removal-no start


Anytime you disconnect and reconnect your battery, the factory alarm will arm upon reconnection and the truck will not start. You have to close your doors, then manually lock and unlock the door with your key. This should turn off the security system and you should be able to start the truck.

Hazard lights flashing


I have a 97 subaru outback and encountered the same problem. It is a security device on all newer subaru's. After changing or charging the battery, leave the negetive battery cable disconnected. Turn the key to the "on" position, then reconnect the negative terminal. This will stop the flashing.
