I agree with Jerry - sound like perhaps your ECM fuse is blown which would prevent your car brains from working. Take off the cover, invest in a tiny fuse puller - you can see the break in the "U" shaped metal or black splat if the fuse cut-loose. Also, make sure you don't have anything plugged-into your cigarette/power outlet(s) and after checking/replacing fuses, retry restarting your car. Also, what red light is on - the two zig-zag lighting bolts, or all/some of your lights?

Sounds like you blew a fuse. Check that first.

SOURCE: power door locks do not work

the reason the locks dont work more then likely there is a code stored in the bcm for a lock output circuit normally caused by one if not both of the sliding door acuators. even if you change the acuators the locks still will not work until the code is cleared.

SOURCE: dash gauges not working

Check the large multi-pin connector in the electronics bay in the engine compartment. The bay is a fairly large black plastic box on the driver's side. Open it and disconnect the largest connector inside (one screw). Spray electrical contact cleaner on the pins and re-mate the connector. This worked on my '99 with the exact same problem. You can find other examples of this with a Google search. It may not solve your problem (could also be a wiring harness problem), but it is incredibly simple and worth a shot.

This is likely a short in the power distribution block located on your stearing column. There was a recall for this problem. Contact the dealer for information.

Warning light on rpm gauge


The light you see is a security light. Usually it shows up when the security system is armed. If the light stays on then I would suggest getting in the car and closing all of the doors. Then press the lock button on the key fob. Then unlock the car with the key fob and it should go away. Try starting the car afterwards to see if the light goes away if it doesn't when you unlock the car with the key fob.

I cannot lock or unlock my car with my key fob


Test the battery inside key fob, should be at 3 volts, if is less than 3 volts replace the battery. If that does not work you may need to replace the key fob, on this vehicle you can program the key fob through the radio, the car manual shows you how to do this.

Before replacing the old key fob you can try to resinc the fob to the car by pressing the lock and unlock buttons at the same time for about 15 sec, if the door locks cycle the the fob will work again.

WONT START.SECURITY LIGHT FLASHES WHEN TRYYING TO START


Anti Theft System - inmobilizer is actovated. Need disarm to start engine. Have you another key and fob? Try lock/unlock cycle with new key + fob. Your key may be corrupted.

Try also just unlocking the car with the key (not the fob) as soon as you unlock the door put the key in the ignition immediately and see if the car starts.

If you have your radio code it may be worth trying a total reset (leave the car unlocked) disconnect the battery and leave for 20 mins. then reconnect.

Hope help with this.
