Lock the vehicle down. All doors and hoods. Open the drivers door with the key. Start it. No start, lock it down again. Open the passenger side and reach in to start. If it starts, replace the drivers side door latch.

SOURCE: when I try to start

If any of the gauges are blinking and going haywire and the security light flashing then the instument cluster is faulty.But if it is just the security light flashing then its in the switch.If you only had the switch replaced then you need a new ignition lock cylinder because its worn out.

Im guessing you tried to bypass the key in the ignition/steering column. This is ok unless the actual problem was in the TDM (theft deterrent module) In this case, the 2 wire bypass does nothing. There is another way to bypass this. Check out this link for tons of info and some DO IT YOURSELF options. Ive done several key bypasses and tons of full bypasses. They both work well, it just depends on what part is failing. I think you need the full bypass to eliminate that TDM.

SOURCE: the car won't start; lights,

Check the starter and the starter relay or fuse. A client of mines car was doing the same thing, it ended up being two issues, the starter not working anymore, and a relay that was bad. If I am not mistaken everything should be labeled in the fuse box under the hood and will tell you where the fuse/ relay is for your vehicle

2005 ford territory neww battery wont start. No crank sound just click


"Territory" means non-USA market?
(AU, NZ)

(Sorry I'm in the San Francisco, Cali area
(we haven't even started your yesterday)).

The click is the sound of the solenoid (big click?)

located on the starter... you can tell it is the main connection after the battery post on the positive side... If cleaning does not
work... checking the fluid levels & charging the battery (yes, I got the new part) ... then consider getting into testing THAT SOLENOID... (by shorting across those big terminals on the starter... If the vehicle is in gear EXPECT it to TRY to DRIVE THROUGH where-ever it is pointed...!!

aaand ...
don't expect the terminals or shorting device look as pretty as they did before they were ABUSED.

the STARTER MOTOR is most likely at fault
(but again... check that GROUND first (at the starter).

The cheapest and best start is to inspect & clean the battery terminals (both ends of each). Always remove the GROUND side connection FIRST... and always put that GROUND terminal together LAST.

THE reason is purely SAFETY... If you are using a regular wrench (rather than a FULLY INSULATED BATTERY WRENCH) every possible contact with the POSITIVE side of the battery has EXPLOSIVE consequences.

Gloves & eyewear (goggles) are always recommended.

You should always have baking soda & PLENTY of fresh water IMMEDIATELY available in case you become contaminated.

Ideally using anti oxidant battery washers BEFORE final connection of those battery terminals.

Ford territory. It shows security code error. Please help with some advice. I am stuck on a farm. Need some (DIY)tips

If you have a security code issue it's usually caused by a bad chip in the key so it won't start the vehicle or a bad body control module either way the truck will need to be towed to a dealer to be diagnosed and fixed but it's most likely needing a new key cut and programmed to the truck

Car won't start , said it was disabled for

THe key has a code in it that is read by the engine immobiliser. BY removing the key and reinserting you are giving the immobiliser a chance to read the code again. Give it a try. THe battery in your key may be getting low and needs replacing.

The security system does not disable the starter, it only disables fuel to the engine. In the fuse block under the hood, locate the STARTER relay. Place your hand on this relay and see if it clicks while someone else turns the key to start...if the relay is ok then the starter itself is faulty. Good luck, i hope this helps.

My 06 Pontiac G6 won't start. The battery still works, the radio and windows still work but I can't get it to turn over. What's wrong with my car?

Probably the anti theft security system. Does your key say PK3 on the shaft? try a different key.

This link explains the problem, but im sorry i have no solution for you

I have a 1996 Ford Mustang GT 4.6. My car would start then turn off as soon as the theft light starting flashing, I tried disconnecting the battery, turning the key in both the passenger and driver doors,...

On the older fords the theft module has 2 plugs in them. You can disconnct one of them, I believe it is the right one , and disable the security system. Finding the module is the hard part. most are located in the middle of the dash.
