I replaced the fuel pump on 2005 Colorado. it shows an anti theft icon and will not start. what can I do?

1. Attempt to start the truck by turning the key to the Start/Run position. The passlock icon may be illuminated or flashing. Try to crank the vehicle.

2. Release key to the ON/RUN position (not the ACC position or OFF)

3. Allow the vehicle to sit with key in the ON/RUN position until the passlock security icon turns off. This could take as long as 12 minutes

4. When the light goes off, turn key to OFF position and keep the key in the OFF position for no less than 30 seconds.

5. Go to #1 and repeat for four cycles or until vehicle starts.

Starter keeps cranking after keys is released won't start. Replaced starter and relays and ingishtion switch

Do you have fuel entering the engine? Do you have spark? Are injectors clean and working?

Truck will not start. ..After you try to crank it up and let the key go it try to keep cranking for a couple of seconds

Continuing to crank after releasing key could be bad solenoid or starter relay. Failure to start requires basic troubleshooting. Spark to plugs? Correct fuel pressure? Broken timing belt?

My car turns over good, acts like it might turn on then continues to turn. I figure it might be fuel filter since low fuel light had come on.Or could it be th fuel pump got hot and is not working properly?

common problem is turning car off with engine not reaching normal operating temp and floods engine. try this. DE-CHOKING PROCEDURE WHEN ENGINE CRANKS BUT DOES NOT START
If the engine does not start, try the following procedure to start the engine using the de-choke mode.
Failure to do so may aggravate the no start condition.
1. Depress and hold the accelerator pedal to the floor and crank the engine for 7-8 seconds. (This will clean out any unburned fuel from the combustion chamber)
2. Release the ignition key to stop cranking.
3. Release the accelerator pedal and start the engine. If the engine starts while performing Step 1 the engine will rev up. Immediately release the ignition key to stop cranking and remove your foot from the accelerator pedal.
^ Do not keep holding the ignition switch in the START position over 10 seconds if the engine does not start. This may result in a weakened or dead battery.
^ Avoid racing the engine or sudden take off right after starting the engine.
^ If the engine still fails to start following the De-choking procedure, have your vehicle inspected by your Mazda Dealer.

for your info there is a recall for this problem. contact mazda.

Ecm? how to diagnose if its failing? will it have a hard time starting? does it have anything to do with how that starter would keep turning over when the key released before but not now?

Its very rare to have an ECM go bad and still have the vehicle start and run.

The vehicle will start itself meaning if you turn the key to the crank position and let go the engine will continue to crank until it start. This is completely normal.

If you have an extended crank condition where it takes longer than normal to start the vehicle especially after a hot soak (the engine is fully warmed up, you swing into target for 20 minutes, and then try to start and it takes longer). This is usually caused by loss of fuel pressure. Two common problems that cause this are the fuel pressure regulator and the fuel pump.

1999 v70 wagon 2.4t starts, as soon as you release the key it dies.and sometimes it just cranks. had a halo installed no help. any help

This sounds like a ignition problem,check the ignition switch. see if it looses power when the key is released,also if it just cranks then it may just die when the key is let go for another reason than the switch, but i would start with the switch first.

Will not start on first attempt but will on second

fuel pump might be going next time u start your car just turn the key to the on position do not start you should be able to hear the pump kick on and start to pressurize the tank.after a few seconds go ahead and see if it starts on the first crank, if u drive around a lot with a less then quarter tank of gas would recomend to keeping your tank at least a quqrter, because the fuel is what helps keep the diaphram cool, driving around with low gas levels for extended periods of time will cause diaphram to go out faster.if its not, then if you are getting extended crank when u start it up the first time, i would also have the fuel pressure regulator at the top of my list of things to check.

My 89 isuzu trooper will start and run great as long as i keep the key all the way engaged 4 or 5 secs after i release it will die can you help

This is most likely a faulty ignition switch, when you release the key and it cuts the engine this is a lost live feed to the coil if petrol or stop soenoid if diesel
check ignion switch for a live feed to the coil/stop solenoid when cranking
