It wont start! replaced the battery just today it is hooked up my right, but i get nothing but lights and gages. it wont even turn over to start. it makes a buzzing sound but nothing happens

The buzzing sound is coming from the relay on the system .

The problem you have is caused by either a low charge on the battery, corroded battery connections, or a faulty battery cable. You may have a new battery but it may be well down on power. Get a battery charger, disconnect the new battery and charge the battery slowly for 12 hours or so and retry. Also make sure your cable connections at the battery are perfectly clean and free of corrosion and are firmly clamped to the battery terminals.

You need to look at the door lock actuators, I'm guessing 1 is operating but staying on when locked and draining the battery. Try manually locking the doors and see what happens. It may come down to removing the door trims and disconnecting each lock in turn, don't forget the boot lock, until you find the culprit. Its possible you may hear the lock solenoid humming or buzzing or feels warm as its trying to lock the door unsuccessfully.

Battery will not stay charged

Could be a bad battery. If you know its not....Then it..

Sounds like something is drawing the battery down...The best test for this is.... Well before starting this test make sure your doors are closed and everything is off. Then ...Take (disconnect) one end of the battery cable, the Positive or negative it don't mater witch one. Put a 12 volt test light between the two disconnected (cable and battery end) if the light is lit, then you have a voltage drain find out were it is you will have too start to remove your fuses one at a time until your test light goes off...for example: if you pulled your cigaret lighter fuse and the light went off then you know there is a problem with that circuit...ect......

This sounds a little confusing but it is fairly easy..i sure hope this helps you out..Good Luck

After locking my car, the interior lights dim and go out as usual and then come back on and the doors will keep locking themselves.

The problem is in the keypad assembly. It causes the interior lights to come on and off and can drain the battery. This also causes the doors to lock and unlock without driver input. The keypads on this model usually go out if someone is playing with it or trying to discover the unlock combination. If you don't need to use the keypad for entry or access to the trunk you can disconnect the keypad and you won't experience the above mentioned problems.

security module in the trunk ???? There is no security module in the trunk . What light's come on by them self ? Park lamps , headlamps , brake lamps ,turn signals etc.... The module for anti-theft is under the right hand side of the dash . The remote keyless entry module is located in the trunk. Is this the part you hear clicking in ?
Door Lock Control Processor, Electronic NOTE: The electronic door lock control system will not function when the ignition switch is in the RUN or ACC position.
The electronic door lock control processor:
  • is located on the LH side of the luggage compartment.
  • contains a radio receiver that receives a signal from the keyless entry remote transmitter (15K601) through electronic door lock control processor antenna, and sends the appropriate command to the power door locks, the horn relay, the indicator flasher, or the anti-theft warning system.
  • is equipped with a battery backup which holds the programmed code in memory in the event the vehicle battery is disconnected.
