Yes the key needs to be reprogramed to the car. Unfortunately that will have to be done by the dealer. Make sure that you have plenty of proof that you are the owner. They will reprogram it but you will not take posession of the car until you prove it is yours.

This is a Direct Fault Caused by the Alarm System Starter Kill. Do you have an Alarm Override Switch???? You may need the Dealership to Reset the Alarm if not.

SOURCE: Car won't start. Believe kill switch is engaged.

Do you have a chipped key {small black thing in the middle of the key} if not you need to take your registration into the dealer and order a new key.

I replaced the battery terminal cable ends. Now the car will not start, There is a clicking noise from the starter.


Bad connection on cable ends or where they connect to battery. Quick check is if you have a good set of jumper cables, use the jumper cable as a replacement for what maybe the defective one. Hook negative cable good to battery neg. post and then put other side on neg cable to engine ground on block. See if it cranks, if it does than the trouble is on the neg. cable. If not then put positive cable on pos. post of battery. Then put other side of pos. cable on the starter post, try to start. If it cranks then the trouble is on the pos side of cable. Hope this helps.

First check and make sure the cables are attached to the correct posts. positive to positive and neg to neg. If so, make sure the battery is charged. Even new batteries can be defective. Try jumping it with a booster box or jumper cables. Check your main fuse. During installation, if the cables crossed it could have popped your fuse. Good luck

I always recommend connecting a neg jumper cable to the body, not the battery. If you get a spark at the battery it can explode.

Gauge showing low output alt only 1yr old wondering if it could be regulator or batt or wiring


if you have access to a digital multimeter, connect the meter (set to volts) across positive and neg. terminal of the battery, should read roughly 12.6 volts, close to 10 volts, battery may be going out, also test the alt output, disconnect neg term and place negative lead to battery neg post and positive lead to neg battery cable (make sure meter is set to amps) should read near the rating, if both those, then you'd want to do a resistance test, (set meter to Ohms) disconnect battery and connect meter neg to either pos cable terminal or where the pos cable connects to the alt and connect positive lead to opposite of neg, should read next to 0, the check resistance of the ground by connecting meter between batt neg cable and body of alt.

sounds like you need a new battery, also have the alternater checked. as far as the alarm, you should be able to disarm the system by locking and unlocking the passengers door, then the drivers door with the key, when the door are closed

try looking each side of the quarter panels wile the hood is open you should see a cone shaped rubber switch i think its on the right side you could have pulled the wire out of the switch or the switch needs to get adjusted so the button is down all the way when the hood is closed im sure that's your problme
