My 1994 Isuzu trooper won't start not even the


Have you tried resetting the alarm by locking and unlocking the drivers side door?If you do this a couple of times in some cars it will restet the factory security system and allow the key to work again.
Some ignition keys have a resistor built into them and the cars computer is programmed to that resistance. The security system needs to verify the resistance for the key before it will let the car start. What I have read recently about this subject basically states that if you are having problems with a car not starting, won't turn over, no clicking but the car still has power....and everything seems fine in the car....battery, starter, alternator, etc. but the security light comes on in the car and the car eventually does start usually 5 minutes or so later then it is the cars security system that is causing the problem. It doesn't recognize the resistance of the key. It sounds like the security system needs to be replaced or bypassed. A friend of mine has a '94 olds royale 88 that started having this problem a few months ago. The car isn't fixed yet but that is just because I just found this information on the security systems on the internet a few days ago. It looks like it is a somewhat common problem with some of the cars that GM made when they first started installing the Passkey I, II and III systems into their vehicles. I hope this helps and if someone else has more information on this subject I would be interested in hearing about it.
And you should check the ignition key switch on the steering colum it will have one of the two wires broken.This sets off the security system which kills the ignition and the fuel pump system.When replacing the key switch make sure you buy one from the dealer most aftermarket switchs are poor quality and if go through the trouble of taking the steering wheel off and parts of the colum do the job right the first time.After you put the new key switch in remember to connect the two wires in the correct electrical terminal.Turn the key to the on position and wait about 10-20 minutes for your computer to recongnize the new switch and program it into it's memory and your car should start right up.

My 2005 chevy impala won't start since someone broke into my car


i would say when the person broke into your car they set off the security system which stops the car from starting, the way to reset the security is to put your key into the ignition turn the key until all the dash lights come on and let them stay on about 15 minutes after the 15 minutes have expired turn the key off and wait about 3 seconds and then your car should start. hope this helps.

This car has a chip key, you can't just put any old key in it it must be programmed to not turn on the security system and disable starting, which is what you have now, the system has locked you out.

Anti theft light won't go out


There are 2 things to try:
1) Use your key to manually unlock the driver's side door - sometimes this alone is enough to reset your security system.
2) Put your key in the ignition and turn to ON position (do not try to start the car, just turn to ON)- after 30 seconds, attempt to start the car and see if the security light goes out.

Y olsdmobile lss 98 is on security light flashing and won t star how to fixed


put key in ignition and turn all the way like your'e going to start it but don't start it. the security light is going to be flashing. leave it for ten minutes like that until the security light turns solid(not blinking). Turn the key to off and then start it. The tumblers in the ignition lock cylinder are no good any more and the ignition switch needs to be replaced and reprogrammed.

Car won't start security light blinks


If the security light is blinking, then the security system is DEFINATELY the reason why your car won't start. The actual cause of the problem is MOST LIKELY a defective ignition switch that is not sending the information from your key to the computer.

Try this:

FIRST try a different key if you have more than one for the vehicle. I have had cars towed into my shop simply because someone was trying to use a cheap duplicate key that was cut at the hardware store. These keys are fine for the doors and trunk. They are great to have around in case you lock your keys in your car. However, they do not have the electronics built into them to allow for engine starting.

If you are using the correct key and a second key also does not work. then...
1. set your parking brake (this will disable your daytime running lamps and conserve battery power.)
2. Connect a battery charger to the vehicle battery if you have one, or see if someone can connect to your battery with jumper cables.
3. Turn the ignition to the START position for about one second. Then release the key to the RUN position. DO NOT turn the ignition OFF.
4. Wait about 10 minutes until the security light quits flashing. Turn the key (without turning it off) to the START position again. The engine should start. If it does not, then you will have to get your car towed in for service.

HINT: you may want to try this a couple times to make sure you are doing it correctly before towing.

If it does start, it is recommended that you have your security system checked for fault codes. I have seen this many times, and it only gets worse and does it more often until this method no longer works to get it started.

Security light


Your battery is probably low. Disconnect the negative battery cable. Put the key in the ignition. Turn it to the on position. Then reconnect the negative battery cable. That should clear the security lights.
