SOURCE: car won't start

The clicking you are hearing is the starter solenoid. This is a relay that applies 12 volts to the starter motor when you turn the key.

I agree with the parts man, it is probably your starter. Put your car on jack stands, (don't trust the jack itself to support the car with you under it) Disconnect your ground lead on your battery. When you get under the car there will be 2 (sometimes 3) wires attached to the starter. One is a large size wire coming from the starter. It will usually be red. There will be a smaller wire connected to a separate terminal on the startere. disconnect both wires. There will be 2 bolts holding the starter to the engine. Usually 1/2 inch or 9/16 size.. Remove the bottom bolt first. remove the top bolt and as it is about to come out you will have to hold the startere with one hand whilr you remove the 2nd bolt.. THAT'S IT

Take it to the parts store and they can check it for you. BTW, a new solenoid should come already mounter to the new starter.


Hope this helps. Good Luck Loringh

SOURCE: remote start will not let car start

The remote start won't keep the car from starting.

If you have a check engine light on currently, that will not allow the remote start to function at all.

SOURCE: Horn Relay replaced multiple times in a few months

Actually you use the horn relay a lot! At least 3 times every time you get lock/unlock your car (6 toots, 2 toots for lock and 1 for unlock right?) ... You just said: "as i clicked my car to lock. It got weaker and weaker until it stopped working" Buy a different brand relay (preferably one not made in China, pay more) and don't expect they WILL last a long time the horns take a lot of power and they have a very dirty feedback to the relay un-like lights. You can dis-able the toots by reading your owners manual.

I have a 2002 Lexis RX 300, every time I turn the key on to start the car the alarm start beeping. Is there a way to stop this. It beeps even turning the car off.


So I talked to someone who suggested my battery might be dead and that I try charging it, but as "Bullmtnbiker" mentions, the horn blasted as soon as I connected the negative terminal of the battery to charge. Finally, I just tried connecting it and running into the vehicle to start it, and that stopped the horn blasts immediately and it started and ran fine. I just hooked up to a trickle charge overnight to get the wounded battery back in shape.

Why my Honda horn keep beeping when connecting negative battery terminal


DOUBLE CHECK that you have connected the battery the right way and haven't put the positive on the negative. This is sometimes a warning that you have the terminals the wrong way round. If the battery is fitted correctly check the fuses.

CHECK THE MARKINGS ON THE BATTERY + & - ARE GOING TO THE CORRECT TERMINALS

Reset tire monitor on 2009 escalade


Hopefully you still have you manual. I will tell you how to reset the HHR, I found it in my manual. Turn the key to on, press lock and unlock at the same time on your key fob. The horn will beep twice telling you that you are in program mode. The left front turn signal light will come on, press the valve core letting air out of the left front tire. The horn will beep when left front is programmed. Then the right front turn signal will come on, let air out till horn beeps. Then right rear, same procedure then left rear same procedure. When that is done horn will beep twice again saying tire program is complete. Turn key off, make sure you air all tires back up.

Horn beeps as if in an alarm mode


My 4Runner did the same thing. What I did was just put a new battery in hook it up and let it honk. Put the key in the ignition and start it and it should stop. It is in alarm mode.

Key on 2005 hemi


I have the same problem. I took the printed circuit board out of my key and tried it. It worked great, so I bought a new key case and put the circuit board in it.

No, I don't think that there is any way to turn off the alarm if you open the door manually with the key.
