If the security light stays on, the system does not "see" the right chip in the key. You could try a spare key, otherwise you'll need to have it towed to a shop to get checked out.

Try removing the alarm system relay, some car alarm has also a fuse on the alarm that you can remove.
Many car alarms unlock by inserting and turning car key while you connect the battery.

SOURCE: Ignition key doesn't return to full off position,

GM had problems with both the ignition cylinder and the transmission shifter on these vehicles. The original ignition cylinders are going to fail, it's just a matter of when they do it, and many people have had problems with the shifter also. Odds are it's the ignition cylinder, you could check by disconnecting the shift cable on top of the transmission, then see if the ignition cylinder will then turn off. If it does, the shifter will need replaced, if not, you'll need to replace the ignition cylinder.

If the smart key battery gets low to where it won't start the car you can hold the smart key with the logo facing the start button close to the button then push it to start the engine.

Wont start


Does it crank and not start or won't crank at all? If it won't crank at all then the starter or solenoid that fires it could be defective. Also if it won't crank could be the neutral safety switch in the transmission keeping it from starting. Is there an alarm on this car? Alarms (especially aftermarket ones) usually have a starter interrupt circuit that prevents the ignition switch from activating the starter when they are set. Factory alarms may prevent the ignition system from firing if they are set or defective. Anyone been doing "non-standard" wiring under the dash recently??? Check that first then check the large gauge wiring connections, starter, ignition switch wiring and alarm(s) in that order and you should find your problem. This issue can be fairly simple but can also quickly turn into an complicated electrical troubleshooting nitemare. You may want to consider having it towed to a reputable shop for professional attention.

1992 toyota celica key wont turn and alarm system going off


The steering lock may be binding the ignition lock cyl preventing the key from turning or the key may be worn out. Try turning the steering wheel back and forth while wiggling and turning the ignition key. To get the alarm to turn off without starting the car try locking and unlocking the vehicle from the passenger side door. There is a micro switch on the drivers side door lock cyl that may be bad and preventing the alarm from dis arming. This is all providing it is a toyota factory alarm sys.

I have a 2000 Yukon Denali and the alarm system will not alow it to start at times.....What should i do whwn this happens or how can i prevent this from happening


According to my lists, 2000 Yukon has a Passlock 2 anti theft security system. This means that the key literally has a transponder in it that sends a radio signal to the ignition. The ignition/lock cylinder then sends a signal to the TDM (theft deterrent module) which then reads the signal and allows your truck to start. If there are any communication breaks, the truck thinks its being stolen and goes into anti theft.... Read up on this link. There might be an option for you. http://vatspasslockpasskeysecurityhelp.yolasite.com/

I have a 2000 dodge intrepid. The alarm never worked on it. We bought it used and all of a sudden when we go to unlock the door it turns on. Now the car won't start. I've looked online for answers and...


The 2000 Dodge Intrepid is equipped with an alarm system that is triggered when unauthorized entry is attempted. In some situations, such as having the Intrepid valet parked or when it is being serviced by a mechanic, the alarm system needs to be disarmed so it doesn't go off. Disarming the alarm will prevent it from being activated until it is armed again.
Difficulty: Moderate Instructions

  1. 1 Insert the key into the ignition.
  2. 2 Turn the ignition switch to "ON." Do not start the engine.
  3. 3 Press and hold the valet/override button within five seconds of turning the ignition on. The valet button is located beneath the steering column.
  4. 4 Release the valet/override button after the security indicator light turns off.
  5. 5 Turn the ignition switch off.


have to do it in this order

2000 hyundai elantra alarm goes off where is the


There is NO kill switch on the 2000 Elantra... HOWEVER, there is a thing called the Key Fob (keyless remote entry system). There is, however, a system in place called the 'starter kill' circuit and it is activated when the burglar alarm goes off.... it's called the burglar alarm relay and it is activated to prevent the engine starter system from being used. There are three ways to get the engine started in such a circumstance... 1. use the key fob to 'disarm' the system... 2. put the key in the ignition and turn it to the 'RUN" position and wait until the alarm stops (horn stops beeping and the parking lights stop flashing), then the engine will start.... 3. pull the starter relay from the UnderHood junction box and bypass the starter circuit (key in ignition and in the 'RUN' position), jumper the starter solenoid circuit to energize the solenoid to start cranking the engine -- it should start then.

disconnect the alarm system from under the dash.battery to starter direct will turn the engine over fine but ignition system still runs through your alarm system.It's also a theft prevent system so your car will not be stolen.The alarm went bad preventing your car from starting.That means putting the ignition wiring back to factory.
