SOURCE: alarm problem

The alarm system 'thinks' someone was trying to steal the car. You will have to reset it.
Try this;
remove key from ignition.
lock and open the car door with the key as normal.
or disconnect/wait a while/reconnect the battery
or you may have to contact the alarm manufacturer.

SOURCE: I need a simple diagram on how to install a push

its hard to provide a schmatic without pictures but here is what you would need ... i assume you are using a three position toggle switch with a spring loaded position for start ... all contacts would be off at first .. contact #1 would be off, on , on ... that would switch 12 volts to the ignittion ballast resistor that is in series with the coil (normal running position).. contact #2 would be off, off, on (spring loaded) ... that would jumper the ballast resistor only for starting (that compensates for normally low battery voltage while running the starter) .... the third contact would also be off, off, on (spring loaded) . that would cnnect 12 volts to the starter relay .. that contact would have to be rated for the current drawn by the starter relay .... if you wanted a different switch arrangment ..like a toggle switch for ignition and a seperate push button for start .. then the ignition toggle would just provide 12 volts to the balast resistor that is in series with the coil ... it would only need one contact off,on .. the push button would have to have two contacts both operate at the same time .. one conntact would jump the balast resistor when on (start) .. the second would provide 12volts to the starter relay.. the second switch configuration might be easier to find than the first ...

SOURCE: I have a 2000 dodge

The 2000 Dodge Intrepid is equipped with an alarm system that is triggered when unauthorized entry is attempted. In some situations, such as having the Intrepid valet parked or when it is being serviced by a mechanic, the alarm system needs to be disarmed so it doesn't go off. Disarming the alarm will prevent it from being activated until it is armed again.
Difficulty: Moderate Instructions

  1. 1 Insert the key into the ignition.
  2. 2 Turn the ignition switch to "ON." Do not start the engine.
  3. 3 Press and hold the valet/override button within five seconds of turning the ignition on. The valet button is located beneath the steering column.
  4. 4 Release the valet/override button after the security indicator light turns off.
  5. 5 Turn the ignition switch off.

I am trying to turn my car off. I have no ignition switch. It is a push start. I tried to step on the brakes and repush the button. Help please. TIA


You need to make sure the vehicle is all the way in park and get your remote out so you can make there is nothing blocking the signal and the push the ignition button and vehicle should shut off foot does not need to be on brake when turning it off

Hi, what you would need to do is check the ignition switch to see if it is passing power to the start wire. If it is, then the wire from the ignition switch to the park/neutral switch is bad. You can trace the wire up to the ignition switch from the park/neutral switch. It's bolted to the side of the column and is not hard to swap out. Cost is only $10.

My 94 Taurus will not turn over. Lights work...I replaced starter then ignition switch. Car will not turn over. It has a history of intermittent starting problems. It may or may not start. Now it...


They have a bad ignition problem. Its more than likely the ignition. Turn the key on, Then right below the ignition theres a hole. take a long skinny phillips screw driver and push it up through the hole and you will hit a release for the ignition. Push it up as you pull the ignition out. Then try to start the car with a flat head screwdriver. Write back if that doesn't work but i have a feeling it will.

I need to replace the ignition switch, please help


Hi!

You need to remove the steering column shroud to access the small hole in the bottom of the key cylinder. When you put the key in and turn it to the "on" position push a small awl or similar tool into this hole which pushes the catch pin and you will be able to pull the cylinder assembly out. With the new cylinder in the same key position just push it back in and reassemble column.

Please do rate this solution as FixYa and revert for further assistance.

Car will not turn over


Hi,

If I understand you right, the problem is the engine will not crank, that is turn over when you turn they ignition key to START. Having said that, might it be that the issue is with the starter system. The starter system is initiated at the ignition switch when the key is turned to start. At this point, the ignition switch then provides +12VDC to a starter relay (if the vehicle has got one) or direct to the starting solenoid. The relay is but a remote switch with slightly higher amperage capacity. The starter relay then engages and supplies +12VDC to the staring solenoid. The starting solenoid then performs two (2) functions. It provides the switching action (hundreds amps) from the battery heavy cable to the actual starter motor. The solenoid likewise pushes a small pinion gear along the shaft of the starter motor to engage the ring gear. The ring gear is of course on the edge of the flywheel which in turn is attached to the crankshaft.

Starter system problems could be corrected by:
1. check battery, battery cables and connections;
2. charge the battery if required;
3. clean brushes and guides of brush holders of the starter motor;
4. clean the commutator and commutator segments;
5. check/replace the armature or field coils if determined to be defective;
6. in some extreme cases it could be the drive pinion or the flywheel gear ring is defective.
7. often it is the big switch that the solenoid activates that looses contacts causing no +12V internally to the motor.
8. Most likely would be a defective starter relay or the IGN switch itself. Relative to this, you might try and check the connectors/terminals and electrical joints.

In the picture below, the upper portion is the starter solenoid while the one below it is the actual starter.
c9b6a69.jpg
Given the amount of work to overhaul a starter, you might consider just replacing it.

So recommended course of action is determine if there is +12VDC at the starter solenoid when IGN switch is turned to START.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Thank you for using FixYa.
