    It seams that your computer is not recognizing your key, there are a few tricks to reprogram them for some vehicles, you can google search the issue and that may help,,, or the alarm module is not properly communicating with the ECM (main engine computer)

SOURCE: wont always start

Did anyone check the clutch interlock switch? It's possible the position is out of adjustment. My 2008 SRT4 is right at the bottom. If you don't push the clutch ALL the way down, it won't start.

SOURCE: 1995 Mitsubishi Eclipse flasher

Start by checking the fuses then move to the light bulbs. If those are ok check the flasher switch and then the turn signal switch. More than likely you will need to replace the flasher switch.

How do you trouble shoot flasher in 97 Ford Aspire

the flasher should be located on the fuse panel, however if your turnsignal works without light on there is nothing wrong with it. sounds to me like you have a - of one circuit shorting out on the the+ of the other, probably int the light socket of one of the right side marker lights. start buy tring right turn signal with just marker lights on first.

Wouldn't start. Turned ignition switch. Nothing happened. Interior lights & headlights worked.tried 2 hours later & car started.

Does your security light flash if you turn your key to the 'on' position? If so, this is a Passlock problem. It should restart after 10 minutes. Here`s a possible solution that has worked for me. Have a new key cut from origional key or best condition key you have. Buy some Electronic cleaner and spray lots into the lock cylinder. Then, put your key in the ignition and turn from off to on position several times (5 to 10 times quickly). Then remove your key and spray again and repeat key turning. Do this several times. I don`t recomend any spray that is oil based. I no longer have issues with my Passlock system and I have almost 500 000Kms on my Impala.

Flasher lights stayed flashing, no gages would work.

Try Re-Activating the Remote System to Lock, Unlock and back to Lock again several times. Does the original problem re-occur? If so there is a problem with the Remote System, and possibly with the Remote itself sticking. Try Lock and Unlock and disconnect the battery. Wait at least 5 to 30-minutes before reconnecting. The remote itself you can take apart and check to see if the depress button is sticking causing the signal to be constantly sent over and over again.

You're welcome.
It was rather unusual that all of the flashing stopped at once.
The dash lights are usually a good indicator.
If the dash light flash really fast, a bulb is burned out.
To stop flashing completely is usually the sign of a flasher.

I'm very glad this was a simple fix for you. Have a great weekend.
