Sometimes this can be caused if you are not using a "chip key" if one is required by your car. If you had a copy of your key made and it was not programmed the car would disable itself after three seconds of attempting to drive the car without the proper key (antitheft feature). If that's the case a properly programmed key will automatically work and no reset is normally required.
In an extremely rare case a programmed chip key can fail and you will get the same symptoms.

SOURCE: I have a Prius and

As far as I know, both my original 2005 and my current 2007 flash that light when the car is off. I believe that is the whole point - to show any would-be thief that the car may be "protected." A small battery can flash an LED light for weeks or months or even longer, so I wouldn't worry about the blinking LED draining your Prius' 12V battery.

SOURCE: My car alarm is blinking

you can try switching the key to the "on" position then open the hood and disconnect the negative terminal of the battery and reconnect after 2minutes. this will allow the alarm to be '"reset" and will recognize that you have the key for the vehicle.

SOURCE: 2006 toyota solara, alarm keeps going off

Those cars have a frequency sensor that is attuned to the exact sound frequency of breaking glass. Are there any noises nearby that resemble glass shattering? Wind chimes? Any type of extraneous noise at the freq of glass breakage will set off the alarm.

Well, I would try to check the spark to make sure the ignition system is providing spark to the spark plugs. Then, I would check fuel pressure, to make sure that the injectors are getting enough pressure to provide gas to the cylinders, using a fuel pressure gauge on the rail.

Car dies intermittantly like no fuel or fire - car cools down and restarts


Need to know make and model, but do these tests: Run the car until it dies. Pop hood, pull one plug wire off of a spark plug, place an old but working spark plug in the connector, lay the spark plug on any metal. Have someone crank car. Do you see a spark? If so, then ignition working. Most likely cause of a car that dies with a working ignition system is the fuel pump system.
Pump working? Do this test: With car that just died, turn key off. Turn key on again (not to start, just to "on"). Do you hear the faint hum of the fuel pump? (I'm assuming your car is fuel injected. Carbureted - just check the ignition as above.) If so, then it could be any of the sensors. Run the engine codes. You should find something. If you DON'T hear the pump run for about 5-7 seconds then shut off automatically, then it is either your pump or the pump relay. Get those looked at.

Starts well,runs wellfor five mins but then cuts


My first guess would be the fuel filter. It is probably almost completely plugged.

Kia Rio died in traffic. Will not start.


Hello Kia Owner,
Regarding the shut down, when was the last time you changed the timing belt?? Did you know that the twin cam 1.5 lirte motor needs a new belt every 50,000 miles or 80,000 kms.
If the belt has failed it may still be in tact but with the cogs ripped off.
Your valves have collided with at least one piston but it is good you were only idling at the time.
The motor may be worth fixing. I just fixed mine myself. I had to lift the engine after removing the axles. I removed the old timing belt and removed and rebuilt the cylinder head(big job). Two exhaust valves were boken right off and lying inside one cylinder.
Most likely your timing belt failed as well.
