These cars have a big problem with the gear selector cable getting stretched. try starting car in netral instead of park. if it starts then it is the cable and I would just continue starting in nuteral instead of replacing cable.

SOURCE: dash warning light not found in manual - hot to turn it off

The flashing key-inside-a-car means the anti-theft system is working properly. On page 84 of the 2009 Prius owners manual, the explanation indicates that a flashing key-inside-a-car is normal, and is desired. It should extinguish when the automobile is operating. It may be distracting, but it's a good thing!!

SOURCE: 2008 Hyundai i30. 2.0 litre petrol.

Interesting problem.. since not US spec. Is there a 'remote keyless (fob)' programmed for this vehicle? That's the only way to DE-arm the immobilizer (anti-theft) feature (based on US specs). Unless you have this key fob (keyless entry remote... which must also be programmed for this vehicle), the only other way is wait 5 minutes with the existing key in the ignition, then it should start (US specs). You will still need to have an 'ACTIVE' keyless remote programmed for this vehicle... otherwise, you'll continue to run into this problem.

SOURCE: 1994 Nissan Pathfinder won't start, even jumping it.

I had a similar problem w/ my 94 Pathfinder. The problem was a cheap security system that was offered in that year model and the wiring between the ignition and the starter was run through this system. The dealership was able to by pass the security system and this fixed the problem. For years other mechanics told me it was the starter but I knew it was something else.

SOURCE: 2002 trailblazer won't turn over or start

Check the cable connections at the battery and the starter for corrosion.
You may want to use a volt meter ( DC Volts ) for a more accurate reading.
Put the black lead on the battery NEG.,next ( with the meter on ) touch the POS. post/bolt with the red lead and see if you have atleast 11.0 volts, if so, try to bare a bit of the rubber insulation at the battery end and recheck with the red lead. Sometimes the solder weakens which causes a loss of voltage/current.
If reading is still close to or above 11.0 volts, next touch the red lead to the large post on the starter and see what the reading is,if this is still above the 11.0 volts,,,, check the fusable links located near the starter, you must have the same reading on both sides of the fuse ( round black plastic ).

hi, try disconecting the battery for a couple of hours and try again but make sure you have your stereo code. if this does not work your key fob may be out cync with your ecu and will require reprograming it is easy on x type , you can do it your self ,you can find the instructions in jag forums or ebay for 1.99

Won't start not the battery


when you turn the key can you hear the fuel pump hum just before you start. Immobilisers and knock sensors will disable a fuel pump. It could just be a faulty pump. Some knock sensors can be reset others have to be changed.

If you can here the fuel pump then look to your HT leads, distributor cap and plugs, in that order. It's most likely the HT leads

Hi ihave a fiat brava 1.2 x reg in the morning the car will not start it turns over rather lazy and only 2 or 3 turns and the digital clock trip meter reset to zero.it has new battery earth wires ok...


It seems the battery loses power over night.
There seems to be some electrical componant chewing up the battery.
Try to remove one of the battery terminal wire at night and thn fix it in the morning and thn see if it will start without jumping, if it does thn the battery is being chewed up overnight.
If after removing the battery terminal at night and refitting it in the morning and it still requires jump start ,thn the battery is faulty.
Hope this helps!

Lanos will not turn over


do you have a clicker for the locks/alarm? try resetting the alarm from there, also disconnecting the battery (i think you said you tried this) temporarily almost always resets anti theft systems.... another thing to try is leave the car alone for at least 15 mins, this allows the short term system to reset itself which might help. when all else fails call the dealer in the morning :) hope this helps
