SOURCE: honda civic car will not start.immobiliser cannot

I don't Believe that remote start can only be re-programed by the dealer as it is anti theft prevention device get a 2nd opinion or call the dealership ..unless something has become truly wrong with your ignition system but a remote device works without a key ...you could try to disconnect the negative terminal on the battery itself to see if it will reset itself foe a few minutes then reattach and secure it but ,,,remote works without the key yntil you wish to drive it at which point you need to insert the key to forwards position to drive it

He may have locked up the pin sequence. You might need to buy a new switch not that exspensive. Stay away from the dealership or it will be.

All you need to do is push the Shifter in harder into park and the key will come right out.. I had this problem once too.. The car just doesn't know it's in park because you didn't push it in far enough.

SOURCE: Key will not turn in ignition

in newer cars like that... if you stick another key from a different car in the ignition, it often times throws off the computer and it will have to be taken to a honda dealer ship

Your ignition lock cylinder probably fell apart. They get worn out and the tumblers inside fall out and leave the cylinder inoperable. Get your lock cylinder replaced and you'll be good as new.

I replaced the ignition lock & cylinder switch but they disconnected the plug from the old ignition option and connected to the new one on my 2003 Honda Element and now it will not start, and


That is because the immobiliser is now activated. The key and the ignition lock need pairing. One way always works, the other works most times.

Phone the dealership and ask them to come out and pair them. don't tell them you changed the lock unless you have to :>)

Disconnect the battery for an hour and then reconnect it. This reactivates and resets the ECM, which recognises the key chip and the ignition chip, and thinks they must be right for each other. When the system is paired, the ECM releases power to the ignition.

Unfortunately there is no resetting. You need to either replace your ignition lock cylinder and have the new ones tumbler pins changed to your original key. Or have your VATSS system bypassed. A stereo shop that installs remote start systems will be able to help you with the bypass.

You really need to have the lock cylinder changed, but you will need to have the new lock cylinder re-pinned to the original key for the VATSS system to register the key and allow the vehicle to start.

Why doesn't it turn?


The security, antitheft or lock picture/icon is a visual indication that something in the car's antitheft system is failing. In most GM cars and trucks there is a hidden system that most people are unaware even exists. From the moment you put your key in the ignition, there begins a constant line of communication between your key's security chip or transponder, to the ignition's lock cylinder, and then to the car's TDM (Theft Deterrent Module). These 3 parts are in CONSTANT communication. If the key is in the ignition, then these parts are sending signals to each other. The security light illuminates when that signal gets broken, even just for a second. When the signal breaks, the car misinterprets this as an attempt at theft and goes into antitheft mode. The car thinks its being stolen or hotwired because it is not getting that signal from YOUR specific key. This is why the security light turns on and shuts down your vehicle. This link explains it pretty well.

99 ford explorer changed ignition now wont start


If your vehicle was towed, check the fuel pump intertia switch located near the top of the passenger side kick panel.
if you changed the key, you will be having an antitheft problem.
you could try putting an original key at the lock cylinder while turning the new key, it may allow it to start... if so, new key will require programming, or have the new lock cylinder coded to the old keys.

Replaced ignition on honda element and now the anti theft wont let me start my car


you can't, this is manufacturer installed antitheft so you can't just replace an ignition on a stolen vehicle. When you take it to Honda they will run the VIN and if it is not stolen they will fix it for you.

How do you remove and replace the ignition lock housing on a 2003 cadillac cts


it would be cheaper, if you lost your key ,to take your vin to cadillac dealer and proof you own it to have them make a key.if you change the cylinder lock youll have to reprogram the antitheft system and possibly breaking the sensor changing the lock and that get pretty pricey. you can get a key made cheap ready to go.cadillacs antithefts are very touchy systems.

Our honda civic lxi 2001's engine is shutting down while running at 40 to 60kph in edsa. we have this checked by Honda already, but they didn't find anything wrong. Intermittent kasi e. Not consistently...


A very common problem with these models with your symptoms is defective ignition switch contacts.
It is so commonly troublesome I would recommend having the ignition switch changed at this time as a possible cure to your problem.(You will need one soon anyway)
Not the complete ignition lock with key and switch......just the ignition switch which is screwed to the back of the ignition lock.
The switch is not expensive and easy to change.
