    if you didn't lose your key also, you could get the hood open and deal with the alarm until you can unhook the battery for a minute and reset the system. otherwise if its not a stock system you may have to cut the power to it. if it is stock then the dealership is the only way.

The best way to get it working again is to get ahold of a mazda service center and they can deactivate it.

SOURCE: Dashboard Lights will not go on Mazda Pickup B2500 1999

As long as all fuses are good, you need to check the light switch its self. Remove the light switch assembly from the dash. With a 12 volt circuit tester, check the wiring coming out of the switch. The dash lights will be powered along with the side marker lights.

Probe each wire that joins the switch, turning the switch on and off. If you don't have any loss of power here, it can be at the printed circuit board at the dash.

SOURCE: car wont crank

I have a 2000 Olds Intrigue that has the starting problem that some people have spoke about. You turn the key and all lights come on but the car will not start nothing. I 1st replaced the ignition switch which did not correct the problem. To get around the problem I have connected a wire to my starter and ran the wire up to the battery and when the car acts up I take the wire touch the positive pole on the battery post and the starter will turn over. I then get in my car and use the key and start the car. I have not been stranded by the car since. I try the key a few times if nothing happens I'll wait a few minutes and if that does not do it I jump the starter with my wire. This has been working for the last 2 years. It's not a correction but it is a work around.

SOURCE: ford escape 2008 having problem

shut all the doors, go to the passengers side put the key in the door, lock and unlock it a couple of times with the key, do the same on the drivers side, usually that will disarm the security system... hope that helps.. if you have keyless entry, you may want to look in the owners manual, sometimes theres a reset procedure in it.

How do i bypass key i d system on a 1998 chevy blazer

The security, antitheft or lock picture/icon is a visual indication that something in the car's antitheft system is failing. In most GM cars and trucks there is a hidden system that most people are unaware even exists. From the moment you put your key in the ignition, there begins a constant line of communication between your key's security chip or transponder, to the ignition's lock cylinder, and then to the car's TDM (Theft Deterrent Module). These 3 parts are in CONSTANT communication. If the key is in the ignition, then these parts are sending signals to each other. The security light illuminates when that signal gets broken, even just for a second. When the signal breaks, the car misinterprets this as an attempt at theft and goes into antitheft mode. The car thinks its being stolen or hotwired because it is not getting that signal from YOUR specific key. This is why the security light turns on and shuts down your vehicle. This link explains it pretty well.

1998 cadillac deville wont start cause starting disable remove key message shows up. What can i do to to fix it

First try another key if you have one.
If that doesn't work then remove the negative wire, wait a few minutes, reconnect and try.
If that doesn't work then you might have broken cable to the ignition switch.

Bravada wont stay crunk

This may be a failure in the antitheft system. When the system can't read the key properly, it turns off the injectors. Normally followed by a light on the dash that says ANTITHEFT or SECURITY. This link explains.

Security light/wont start

I believe that vehicle has a 'PATS' antitheft system. There's a special 'chip' in the key that tells the car it's the original key and not a copy.
There is a way to 'hack' the antitheft but, to maintain the security of everyone that has a system like this in thier vehicle I won't post it.
Like for most factory codes for radio's or other antitheft system problems if you bring your vin# and/or registration (vin is on there too) and maybe state licence to prove you own the car, you can walk into a dealer and get the help you need without bringing the car in.
Decent dealerships will know everything from a vin#.
If they wan't you to bring it in, it's because they wan't to make money for it because they need to get a number off of a module or other service that you may not be able to do. Try a different place.
Also a car audio place can help if the installer's are talented and familiar with remote starts.
