Simple, free and doesn't hurt anything; Use ONLY your car's ignition key in the ignition - in other words, have NO other keys attached to the ignition key while in use.I had this same problem, increasingly worse (as I added keys to my car key ring). Finally, I seperated my ignition key from my other keys, and so far, no anti Theft problems!

SOURCE: After changing the rear drum

Maybe something came loose..Being you cannot scan the vehicle..You may have to start over..Revome each drum make sure the wheel cylinders are in contact with the shoes..Then make sure the connector wires didnt pull out of the connectors...Also check the master cylinder plunger ..Make sure its not stuck Its located in the cap instead of the resevoir..

SOURCE: HELP please!! My daughter has

I have a 1998 Chrysler Sebring Coupe and the alarm kept going off whenever I got in the car. Turns out the trunk wasn't closed properly. I opened the trunk and the alarm went off. I closed it solidly and it hasn't happened since. HOWEVER, the passenger door won't lock or unlock from the outside with the key. The key turns left and right but doesn't catch on anything. Any suggestions?

How do I reset computer on 2005 Cadillac cts

Disconnect the negative cable from the battery, then go inside your car and press the break pedal for 30 seconds. That should drain the extra power and reset your computer.

2005 Colorado drivers side window and remote locking system

Just figured it out and replicated it 3 times..

any type of power/voltage change seems to trigger this issue

The most common symptom is power locks fail and only the driver window quits, however that is on the extended cab.

Steps to fix and it works every time.

take door panel off driver's door
Disconnect the wiring attached to window and power lock control unit
disconnect battery cables
connect the negative to the positive cable(((NO BATTERY CONNECTED)))
This will act to short residual voltage in the system

5 minutes later
place the key in the ignition and turn to the run position
connect the wiring to the window/lock controller
connect the negative cable to the battery
then the positive
open drivers side door
turn key to the off position((do not remove yet)) you should get a series of dings through speakers telling you the key is still in the ignition
once it begins dinging pull the key out and you should hear the door lock solenoids trigger and the windows should work.
