Good idea. Just hook up the scanner and turn the key to on.

As long as the ignition switch is receiving power and sending it out with the key in on-do the dash gauges and warning lights come on, and most importantly does the check engine light from the computer turn on? Then you know the computer is powered, so the scanner should work to retrieve any fault codes.
If no codes are present, and the key switch is working, check all fuses, then start checking for gas to the engine and spark at the spark plugs.

You do not have another master ? If not you need a factory scan tool Dealer or mobile lock smith .
Connect a scan tool to the vehicle.
Turn ON the ignition, with the engine OFF.
Insure that all power consuming devices are turned OFF on the vehicle.
With a scan tool, select Request Info. under Service Programming System and follow the scan tool on-screen instructions.
Disconnect the scan tool from the vehicle and connect the scan tool to a Techline Terminal with the current Service Programming System (SPS) software.
On the Techline Terminal, select Service Programming System and follow the Techline Terminal on-screen instructions.
Disconnect the scan tool from the Techline Terminal and re-connect the scan tool to the vehicle.
With a master passkey III key, turn ON the ignition with the engine OFF.
With a scan tool, select Program ECU under Service Programming System.
At this point the scan tool must remain connected for the duration of the 10-minute relearn procedure.
Important: On some vehicles the SECURITY telltale maybe illuminated on steady for the duration of the 10-minute relearn procedure.
Observe the scan tool, after approximately 10 minutes the scan tool will display "Programming Successful, Turn OFF Ignition". The vehicle is now ready to relearn the key information and/or the passwords on the next ignition switch transition from OFF to ON.
Turn OFF the ignition and wait 5 seconds.
With a master Passkey III key, start the vehicle. The theft deterrent control module has now learned the key transponder information and the PCM has now learned the fuel continue password.
Important: Perform this step ONLY on vehicles with EXPORT and Canadian configured theft deterrent control modules.
Turn OFF the ignition and wait 15 seconds minimum.
Important: Perform this step ONLY on vehicles with EXPORT and Canadian configured theft deterrent control modules.

2005 mazda6 wont start new alternator, battery, and starter


have you tried a diffrent key, these keys have chips in them without a good reabable chip it will not start, i would first have the computer scanned for any stored codes as when theres a problem the computer picks it up and stores codes, these codes will help by telling you where the problem is and with some checking you can find the core of the problem, i,m not sure whats happening when you try to start it but from the parts you listed i guess it doesnt do anything when you turn the key, the engine doesnt spins at all and try to start. i would try key first and then scan for codes. hope this helps.

When i try to start the car it wont turnover an it keeps blinking security on the dashboard


Your key has a computer chip in it that tells the computer that the person who owns the car is trying to start it. Sometimes the key will lose its memory and the car computer thinks your a thief with the wrong key. You may have to have a new key made from a code the dealer can aquire from the VIN number I believe.

Our 2004 GMC canyon will not start from time to time.


Could be any number of thing's . Engine management system sensors . Anything mentioned on here would be a guess . Having a qualified repair shop with the proper testing equipment viewing sensor scan data is the way to a fix . Not going by peoples guess . It could be a fuel system or ignition system prblem , engine sensor etc....
047 Engine Hard to Start or No Start Scan Data for Ignition
048 Engine Hard to Start or No Start Scan Data for Starting Problems
Takes year's to learn how to properly diagnose these systems . I have over thrity year's experience , thousand's of dollars of scan tools , diagnostic equipment etc... An ever year they come of with new stuff , I go to GM tech school 4 or 5 times a year .
