It is definitely an immobiliser/car security problem. Take it to the dealer or specialist.

SOURCE: I have a 2006 Chevy

check the lock side of the switch, its not connecting, remove the switch and test it, if the doors will unlock its letting you know the plungers are working, and that to lock its not getting any power to reverse the action, ( check the individual doors, if they work both ways,, then its the drivers door switch that's faulty

Check Transaxle Ligh flashing shortly after replacing spark plugs

First --- spark plugs seldom fail to fire & cause misfires,
unless they are badly worn & you also have other issues,
such as ignition coil or module problems or vacuum leaks,
to name two.
Also codes are not needed to diagnose any vehicle problem.
To say they can't diagnose a cylinder misfire or a torque converter lock-up solenoid or codes, means you went to the wrong shop or they misunderstood your intentions to spend any money, to actually perform the necessary testing or diagnostic procedures

Bad bcm 2003 chrysler town & country van

You need to go to the dealer. They will put in a rebuilt one and program it to your car . You can\'t do this yourself. I you get a junkyard one they won\'t warranty it and if it is bad you will have to reprogram it again. If anything isn\'t right after they put it in tell them right away they told me they needed diagnostic time to find problem I said your full of it I didn\'t have this problem until you replaced it . They put another one in and it has worked for 4 years

2007 g6 v6, new tires and alignment didn't help. Pulls abruptly during acceleration, shifting, and while on cruise control .

Why Because you failed to explain what you wanted to be
resolved & most likely went to the wrong shop,They took your
money bur never even diagnosed anything you told them,happens!

What about motor mounts,transaxle mounts,cv axles,worn suspension
parts? Was all that checked?

Was the car road tested with you driving & then switch &
mechanic driving

Don't do that--- no fix--- they don't care

2003 honda accord. I have an air condition line with a block in it that is under the dash. my mechanic told me it would be $800.00. sounds a little steep. is there a way to flush the lines and save...

You do not have an a/c hose blockage unless you
have a major compressor failure

Get a second opinion

What actual proof were you given of their diagnoses

They are guessing at best

Was it an evaporator leak, under the dash
& you didn't understand what you were told?

2002mazdatribute will not run when put in gear and dealership says nothing is wrong??????

Do you know in detail what the dealer actually did?

We get a hundred of these dealer's not caring about
the customer ,every day on this site alone

I won't ever recommend going to one.

That may offend some very good hard working
technicians,but the dealers seem to only be in the
game for the money.
The mechanics have no control over what the
service mgr want them to do

Do you have any check light on the dash?

That could be a bad Transmission Range Switch
if your veh has one.

It probably didn't act up when it was there & you
were one of the few they couldn't find anything else
to take you for,so they return your vehicle

I never go to a dealer after the warrantee runs out
Now you see why.
