If you get under the dash there are two very small white wires in an orange sheath and they go from the steering column to a 15 pin connector. these are the wires that read the key resistor. so you need to get a electrical meter and read the resistance of the pill in the key then get a resistor at radio shack of the same resistance and cut the two wires leaving the wires long enough to connect the resistor.. connect it to the ends coming from the 15 pin connector not the column. this replaces the resistor in the key so you dont need the special key anymore either.

How do you program new spare key for 2007 rodeo RA?


if its the ignition key it must be done by a dealer and have a lage black plastic head which has got a transponder in it. If you got a blank key cut at the locksmith it will turn the locks but wont start the car. Usually you get the dealer to do both supply ignition key and then get it cut, then they can program it.

but if your asking how to program the keyless entry remote follow this procedure.
take note step 5 is different for different year models.

How to reset AIRBAG SRS Light on 2003 - 2006 Infiniti G35 Coupe


Hi, on most vehicles, the airbag light should come on for at 6 seconds, and then go off if the system is working properly. If there is a fault or a problem in the system, the light will remain illuminated, or flash continuously. If the airbag light does not work properly, some vehicles have an audible tone that sounds indicating a problem with the airbag light system. When the light is on (or the tone is sounding), the airbag will NOT deploy, even in an accident. <br /> The flashing light on your car is telling there is a problem. <br /> <br /> <b>How to reset AIRBAG SRS Light on 2003 - 2006 Infiniti G35 Coupe </b> <br /> Ignition Key Method: <br /> <ul> <li>Turn IGNITION on (but don't start car).</li> <li>After the AIR BAG warning lamp lights for 7 seconds, turn IGNITION off within 1 second.</li> <li>Wait 4 seconds.</li> <li>Turn IGNITION on (but don't start car).</li> <li>After the AIR BAG warning lamp lights for 7 seconds, turn IGNITION off within 1 second.</li> <li>Wait 4 seconds.</li> <li>Turn IGNITION on (but don't start car).</li> <li>After the AIR BAG warning lamp lights for 7 seconds, turn IGNITION off within 1 second.</li> <li>Wait 4 seconds.</li> <li>Turn IGNITION on (but don't start car).</li> <li>Wait 3 seconds.</li> <li>Turn IGNITION off.</li> <li>Wait 2 seconds.</li> <li>START Car (the light may be blinking slower than before).</li> <li>Wait 3 seconds.</li> <li>Turn IGNITION off.</li> <li>Wait 3 seconds.</li> <li>START Car.</li></ul> <br /> <b>This is a little easier</b> To reset the light simply turn the iginition to the on position, (you dont need to start it). All the lights should stay on for thier diagnostic check. As soon as the airbag light goes off, before it starts flashing, immeditatly turn the car off. Repeat this 3 or 4 times (turning to on then off) and the light should go away

1996 Oldsmobile Achieva: Security light flashes upon startup


Here is what you do, but only when the SECURITY light flashes - if it is always ON or OFF it's no use.
Turn the key in the ignition to ON.
Wait for exactly 10 minutes ( SECURITY light will flash for 10 minutes and then stay on SOLID)
Turn the key to OFF
Wait 5 seconds.
Turn the key in the ignition to ON.
Wait for exactly 10 minutes.
Turn the key to OFF
Wait 5 seconds.
Turn the key in the ignition to ON.
Wait for exactly 10 minutes.
Turn the ignition OFF.

Start the car normally.
It has relearnt the keycode and you're good to go.
NOTICE - it takes 30 minutes to relearn, that's THREE cycles of ON - 10 minutes - OFF.

Good luck.

2001 chevy malibu wont start


Is your theft light flashing. If it is try this. I learned this from emission wiz Put your key in turn it on dont start wait 10 mins remove key wait 10 seconds repeat this a total of 3 times. If that dont work try a different key do the same thing. This relearns your key to the ignition it started with Gm cars and trucks from 1999 to to 2006. It is a big problem but there is no recall that I know of. If that dont work a dealer needs to probably replace and reprogram your ignition switch and keys

2003 yukon engine shut down wont crank


Theft light on indicates a problem with passlock. You have a problem with the key or ignition switch. When I worked I replaced a lot of ignition switches, so i would say that would be your problem.

Give this a try it might work for you........
When you put the key in ignition, turn it on (not to crank) dos the security light start flashing? If so, you need to either wait 15 minutes or wait with the key on until it stops flashing. Once it stops flashing, try to start again. You should get to try it 2 times before the passlock will lock up again.

My 2004 Colorado did this exact thing I thought it was the battery. But it was until some one told me it happened to their GMC also. He said its a the passlock. It is a passive theft-deterrent system.Passlock enables fuel if the ignition lock cylinder is turned with a valid key. He then told me i turned the key to fast and it didn't read it. If a correct key is not used or the ignition lock cylinder is tampered with, the fuel system is disabled and the vehicle will not start.If the engine stalls and the security light flashes, wait about 10 min until the light stops flashing before trying to restart the engin. And remember to release the key from start as soon as it starts.
