Get the a new key from the dealer with the chip in it. or test the resistance of your key and add the corresponding resistor inline with your ignition.

Is the battery in the key easily replaceable? If not you should bring it to whoever sold you the key and see if they can give you a new one or replace the battery if needed.

Lost key had one made it turnsover but wont start thieft light flashes


It probably wont start. Im guessing, but you probably have a chip in the key that you lost, and the copy you made or had made doesn;t. Those keys are for getting in your vehicle, and won;t start it. Sorry but the solution to your problem is that you need to get a chipped key, usually at your auto dealer. They are not cheap either. so i hope that this sheds some light on why your car wont start. Good luck~!!!

I replace the ignition switch assembly in a 1998 BMW THE NEW KEY WON'T START THE CAR . EVERYTHING IN THE DASH BOARD LIGHT BUT WON'T START


Check with the dealer to see if that model car has a chip in the key. If it does then the new key wont work because it does not have the chip or the chip is not set right.

Lost my keys to my 2003 expedition my son took key switch out put a new one but anti theft wont let it start I found the old key how can I start it


You may be able to hold the original key close to the key lock and try starting the truck with a valet key that does not have a chip.
The sensor for the chip is close to the cylinder.

My car wont turn over but tells me my key is bad


you cannot start your vehicle with a failed PATS key
your key houses a micro chip that communicates with the vehicles computer telling it that you are the rightful owner
the battery that powers the chip has died and the chip no longer communicates time for a dealership visit

Car wont start till i turn key on for 10 minutes


Sounds like a security passcode issue. There is a chip inside the ignition and if your key does not have a chip in it, this is probably the problem. You can bypass the security lock feature but its a pain in the kisser. Unfortunately, that maybe the only solution to bypass the system or you can do nothing except before letting the key go when you start the car make sure it is started.

If the chip in a key for a 94 cadilac ingnition key glitches up will the lights and stuff still come on but the car not start?


yes the lights on the dash will light up as usual but the car wont start as it is immobilised if the chip in the key has stopped working, usually there is a red light that flash's somewhere on the dash and when the car recognises the key the light will stay on and the car will start! if te chip is gone the car will ight up as usual but it wont start as it will be immobilised although on a car of the age yours is the immobiliser will be simple to bypass if you hav'nt got the knowledge an auto electrician shoul be able to sort it out with in a hour so it won;t be exphensive.

2001 ford taurus wont start and anti-theft light is blinking


Either you may be using a key that you had copied from the original or your chip went bad in your original key. Most of cars now a days have the key censor in the key so if it is the incorrect key it will not start your car or if it does not read that chip it will not start
