SOURCE: 2001 xterra key won't turn

First have her turn the steering wheel back and forth while trying to turn the key. Then if that does not work try moving the shifter as much as she can with the brake pedal depressed. If for some reason that does not work she will have to get it to a dealer. Good luck, dont forget to rate.

There is no reset button, unless you have an after market alarm on the truck. Try this, close and lock everything including the hood, lock the doors with the driver side power door lock button. Then, unlock the driver side door, wait 30 seconds and then open the door. This should reset the factory alarm system. Use the lock button on the door to lock it and then close the door.

You have waited the 30 seconds before opening the door; it is vital that you wait so the alarm can reset itself.

If this is not the factory alarm system (aftermark alarm), try looking under the dash for a small black box with in line fuses in it. These are fuses in the wires and not in the fuse box itself. If you find this, remove one or more of the fuses and it should stop it from going off. Aftermarket means it was installed after the truck was built. If you can find the control unit and unplug it,that would be best. Should be a box that is held in under the dash with ties and not bolted securely. Look under the dash, it might not be by the fuse box, but it will not be bolted to anything. It is likely a small black box maybe 3"x4" in size. Usually they tie them up under the dash near the steering column.

Also, sometimes, in the owners manual have the right procedure at factory theft system disarm check it.

To clarify something you said, the accessories should go off when the key switch is in the start position.

I received instruction from one of your experts that did not help at all related to my 2001 Audi Steering wheel being stuck in locked position. They said to try very hard to move it to the left or th

I hate to hear that you feel that way. I don't know who, or when, but I do know that an ignition cylinder can get into a bind, which can be relieved by turning the wheel (sometimes with extra pressure) to the left or right.

It's not always the case since sometimes it's the lock cylinder that is damaged or the ignition switch, but it is generally the first response to help someone without being there to test it.

I'm hoping that you got the problem resolved. If not, you may need a new key/lock cylinder installed. Sometimes, it's not even the lock cylinder, but it's the electrical switch that won't allow the key to return to a position where it can be removed.

And, then there's the shift lock linkage that can cause it to bind.

Good luck !

Program new key for montana

As long as you still have one that works, it's easy.
1) Insert the "original" (working) Key.2) Turn the Ignition to ON (RUN), but do NOT start the engine. Turn the Ignition OFF and remove the key.3) Within 15 seconds insert the new key and turn the Ignition to the ON (just to ON, not to START) position. The Security indicator should light up for about 2 seconds to indicate that the new key has been programmed.
At that point, it should work. I don't know how many different keys you can get the Theft Deterrent Module to recognize; there may be a limit.
If you're don't have a working key now, it's much more time-consuming;the procedure to get the TDM to recognize a different key takes about 30 minutes when you don't have an old one that works.

You can't fix it yourself. It takes a scanner at your Local Dealership to do it. People do it, (new battery) everyday unaware that doing so can and usually does, arm the theft system and either kills the radio or the whole car. To me it's just another built-in defect that requires dealer assistance. It's a buzzkill I know, and it probably won't be long until car owners won't even have access to the engine compartment. Sorry.

Even when the car is off & the keys out ?

The module I had looked like an aluminium heat sink
with fins on top of the electronic part & was behind the

My 88 Tracer started having problems with all dash lights being on. Then a day or two later over heated lost all antifreeze except small amt in overflow. Let it cool added some to radiator and overflow....

OK, first, I think it may be the alternator. If you charge the battery overnight, the engine should run for about an hour before it discharges again.
I don't think the coolant should affect the wiring.

There may be a fuse panel for the high current fuses in the engine compartment. It should be 30 amp or higher.

Does the generator/alternator/battery light come on when the key is in ON position?

What engine? 1.9L or 1.8L?
VIN Number?
