Sounds like a problem with the ignition module. If the car runs fine for a bit then quits,,,, and if you wait a few minutes it restarts,,,, replace the module.

Title: What to do if you need a replacement ignition key

Overview:

There are times where you may need a replacement key. This can be the cause of a lost key, a key going bad, upgrading from the non all-in-one key to the all-in-one key.

Please keep in mind that if all keys are lost, there is NO WAY to program a new key to you car and a replacement TWICE module will have to be found with a key, either new (costly) or used and be married to the car via the dealer.

Symptoms:

Need a key, key is giving intermittent "bad key" messages and will not start the car, etc.

Experience Level:

Easy

Tools Needed:

Probably none, or a small tool to take the door off of a key via the hole in the side for the all-in-one key.

Time Needed:

Not much.

Parts Needed:

Key Blank from Dealer about $40 This is cut to your car.
Key Top from Dealer about $40 This is the "key guts"
all-in-one guts from Dealer about $90
all-in-one guts from ebay about $30-$60
key door from dealer for all-in-one key about $15

Procedure:

There are a few cases that can be covered

Case 1: Non All-in-one key replaced by non All-In-One key.

Subcase A: Have a non all-in-one key that is going bad

Solution: The dealer will have a replacement top for the key. Get the top, replace the top of the key and have it reprogrammed for the car. Total cost about $40 + $30.

Subcase B: Replace with all-in-one key because they are neato and / or the other key is lost.

Solution: Order the "Key Blank" from dealer and obtain the guts for the all in one key from ebay or the dealer. Have keys programmed by dealer. Total cost about $35 + $30 + guts cost.

Case 2: All-in-one key replaced by All-In-One key.
Subcase A: Have key but is not working.

Solution: Get guts and have it programmed. Cost about $30 + guts cost.

Subcase B: Lost key, need a new key

Solution: Get Key Blank and guts and have it programmed. Cost about
$35 + $30 + guts cost.

Outcome:

Very nice. Replacing the non all-in-one with the all-in-one dramatically increased the range of the remote. over the banana style remote.

Notes:

- Replace the battery in the guts if you get them off of ebay.
- You have to have all keys and remotes to dealer for programming.
- The guts for the non all-in-one key do not have the remote guts
- The guts for the all-in-one key have the security and remote in one
- The key shaft from the ebay all-in-one key can be discarded

Was in a storm and rode through flash flood. Now car is spurting. what could have been damaged or gotten wet?


if the engine stalled during this you could have bent a connecting rod but before going that deep remove the spark plug wires and see if the spark plug wells are full of water if they are dry do a compression test that will give you some idea of whats going on

I am having a problem with the car turning on and off constantly and when driving on the freeway when i hit the excel orator it looses power to the gas peddal and comes back over and over again. while on...


It sounds like you have a loose connection to you coil packs. The speed sensors actually could be causing the problem also. If they are shorting out and shorting out the ECU then the car would die. And if they are just momentarily shorting, then it would cause this exact problem. When the car dies going down the freeway does the speedometer jump or the transmission act up?
