The key icon is not the check engine light but the immobilizer light, therefore the car wont start. I have the same issue with my 03 Tiburon after i changed the motor and tranny. It ran fine for a couple of days and the quit.
I took towed the car to a dealership and they stated I needed a new BCM for $1200. However, I got a used BCM from an auto wrecker and will get the dealership to program it for about $200.

SOURCE: what does my dashboard light mean, orange shaped like an engine

that would be your check engine light you will need to go to the dealer or a garage that has a scanner to read the code stored in the car computer . your car is now running in safe mode, which is not optimum performance.

SOURCE: Yellow dashboard light on in shape of an engine

It is the check engine light, the computer has detected a fault, and has stored it in memory.
The vehicle needs to be connected to an OBDII handset to read the codes. If you live in the US, take it to any Auto Zone store and they will read off the codes for you, once you have the codes, you are on your way to finding the problem. This may be possible at other major auto parts stores but you will have to call your local store to confirm.

Hope this is of some help.

Bought a clicker for my son's used 2003 Hyundai Tiburon (base) we just purchased. He keeps the clicker, I went to open the door with my key, and the car went into crazy mode. I put the key in th


It happens a lot for the Tiburon apparently....what you have to do is put the key in the ignition whilst the horn is going nuts, turn the key to the "on" position and wait a minute or so for the horn to stop blowing. Then press the "unlock" button on the fob until you see the turn signals flash. try turning the key over and see if it will start up. If it doesn't, try again, same thing only turn the key all the way off and try starting as normal again. I can't remember if it's the "unlock" or "lock" button you're supposed to press, but one of them does it. Test it while in the car and see if it locks when you hit lock on the fob.....oh, and also make sure all the doors are shut while you are doing this. It recalibrates the fob to the car's computer and resets your security system and keyless entry.

The flashing key shape light on the dashboard will not stop. when I put in the key and turn the ignition on, the light stops only to come on again once key is removed. It is still flashing some two hours...


Hello and welcome to Fixya!
As a first course of action, I strongly suggest that you remove the positive batter connector and let it sit for atleast 5mins. before reconnecting it. This will reset the system and can get your vehicle back to it's normal operation.

Please do keep me posted on the progress. I'll be glad to help you out. Hope this helps and thank you for using Fixya! Have a good one!

I have a 2003 Hyundai Tiburon GT, the key fob doesn't work. I got battery checked, they're fine. Any ideas how to make the key fob work? It has an unlock and a lock button.


Place key in ignition, turn but do not crank up the motor and press the lock/unlock buttons to program it for your vehicle. You should see the lights flash on/off confirming a successful link.

My '98 Ford Taurus won't start


"Security" or Key-shaped light flashes on the dashboard ? Your car might be equipped with an immobilizer. (you can find more information about the immobilizer in your owner's manual). The immobilizer allows the engine to run only if the correct key is used. If your car has an immobilizer, you probably see a "Security" or Key-shaped light coming on on the dashboard every time you turn the ignition ON. If this light is flashing when you turn the ignition ON, it could mean that there is some problem with an immobilizer or the system does not recognize the key. If the immobilizer doesn't recognize the key, the engine wold not start at all, or would start and then die in few seconds.
You can try a spare key, if it won't work, your dealer is the place to call. Sometimes, the key is just need to be reprogrammed.

My battery died on my 2003 tiburon and i tried to boost it and the lights start blinking and the siren goes off but the car won't start


Hello there,

Your Immobiliser has activated the alarm, you must deactivate the immobiliser to deactivate the alarm. go into the car (even if siren is wailing and your neighbours are nosy) close the door and put key in the ignition, turn key to ACC position. Hold down unlock button till you see indicators flash once. Remove keys and get out of the vehicle. Try unlocking and locking. This should be reset.

Cheers Buckaroo,
Chris.

I belive all you have to do is put the key in the ignition and turn it counter clockwise. Hopefully that works for you.
