First test the battery with a voltage tester, the reading should be around 12.4 volts. PLACE THE TESTER ON THE TERMINALS OF THE BATTERY NOT ON THE CLAMPS THAT CONNECT TO THE TERMINALS.

If voltage is low, then the battery is not holding a charge or either the alternator is not charging the battery properly.

If voltage is normal, clean the terminals and the clamps that connect to the terminals.

My Cadillac cts 04 won't start... Every time I turn the key it won't even turn over... But the light that shows a car with a lock on it blinks what do I do


Sounds like the anti theft system is active m try this process. Turn the key on. Do not attempt to start. Wait 10 minutes. Turn key off. Turn key on. Wit for theft light to go off. Now attempt to start.

Car will not start or even turn over


If it has the "locksmart" PAT(passive Anti Theft) option,there is a chip in the black plastic "head" of the key,that is mated to a reciever in the steering colum, a magnet would most likely mess the system up.
It kills the fuel,hence the no start. If you have another key,try that,if not ,take the key off the ring and try it. Odd thing about the dash lights,but the key switch "talks" to the computers so maybe. My best thoughts on your problem. let me know.

Have 2004 s40 Volvo. Turned car off, left key in ignition about 5 minutes. Car has been running great, went to take key out, dash light would come on, key would turn but couldn't take key out of...


the key lost synchronization with the the computer. its a common problem with these new high security systems they're very sensitive. this made the battery die, next step is to take the car to the dealer, dont try to start the car anymore. if you have any questions call Priority Automotive Locksmith 866 999 7858

2001 monty carlo changed battery securty light flashing car wont start. car ran great before any trick or code i dont know to get it to start


Leave the key in the run position until the security light stops blinking. This should take 10 minutes. Then turn the key off, wait 5 seconds and try to start it. The security light should be blinking again. Leave the key on again for 10 minutes. Repeat this 3 times. After the third time on the the next start it should start and run fine. This will reprogram your theft system.

Why wont my car start even after i tried the security reset. i turned key to on position for 10 minutes turned it off then tried to start it 3 times. security light still flashes


turn the key on and wait till the security light stops flashing ( this could take as long as 30 minuets ) then turn the key off then back on but do not try to start the engine and wait till the security light stops flashing ( again this could take as long as 30 minuets ) then turn key off then turn key on and start engine.

My security light in my car is on what does that mean?


There is a problem with the theft system. This is the system that pervents the car from starting if the ignition lock cylinder is damaged when someone trys to steal the car.
You can try and do a relearn, it may let the car start after this relearn. The most common cause for this concern is the ignition lock cylinder, it has a computer sensor inside that goes bad, you have to replace the cylinder and program it.
To reprogram/relearn, put on the parking brake(this will keep the headlights from comming on and draining the battery), try to start the car, leave the key in the "on" position. The security light should no be flashing. Wait for tem mins, the light should turn off. At this time, turn the key off for 2 seconds and try to restart. At this point, the car may start, if not let the key stay in the "on" position again for tem mins untill the light turns off. Again turn the key off and try to start the car. It may take 3 times for the system to relearn, if you try 3 times and still no start, you will have to replace the ignition lock cylinder.

Can anti-theft be reset.Lite on car won't start


Try to start car. When it fails leave the key in the on position. You will see the Theft System light flashing. Light will flash for 10 minutes, stay on and then go off. Turn key to off position, wait 10 seconds and start your car.

Don't waste your time or money taking this problem to a dealership because Chevy refuses to issue a recall on this problem. I went to the dealership 5 times. I wound up paying for 2 key cylinders, a BCM module, an ECM module. I finally took it in when the theft system light came on while driving. The problem was in the fuse & relay center underneath the hood. It was all corroded so it was replaced. No problems since then.

Car sometimes won't start


this is a pass key problem, try this.

PASS LOCK RESET GM CARS 1999 UP
1) Put the key in the ignition and turn to the "ON" position. Leave it that way for 10 minutes. After 10 minutes turn the key and take it out. Repeat this process (2) more times (3 times, 30 minutes total) This should reset the passlock system to recognize your key

Security light flashing


Take the Original Ignition key out to the car. Get in it and turn the key on. Every light should light up like your going to start it. The factory security light will flash. Leave the ignition on until it stops flashing. Should take about 10-15 min to do it. once it does, shut the key off and then turn it over to start the car.
