Does the car make a clicking noise when you try to start it. The best way is to take it off and have it checked at an auto electric place and havve them fix it. this will be cheaper than buting a new one.

Anti theft light blinking,dash lights up,windows roll up and down but car wont start. How do I start it?


If the anti theft light is blinking and you say that everything else fine.. My first thought is that the key is not programmed to the vehicle. The key has a internal chip that must be programmed to vehicle in order to start. Now my other question is, Is the key your using for the vehicle the original key or have you just recently had a key made? Regardless, in order for the yur Tribute to start, the key. Or keys have to be program to vehicle by your neighbor dealership. Thats the reason for your anti theft light is blinking

Try first unplugging battery cable for five minutes, this sometimes fix the problem. If it does not replace electric windows relay and electric windows fuse.

2000 jimmy wont start can it be my crank sensor


Antitheft or Security system failure is a common problem on GM vehicles. Every time you put your key in the ignition, the vehicle's security system reads the signal from your key to make sure it is OK to run. When it recieves the "correct key" signal, the security system allows the starter to turn over, and/or the fuel injectors to function and your car works like it normally does every day. If you were to use a different key, or try to hotwire it, the system would shut down these parts of your car, thus making the vehicle completely immobile. This is GM's way of preventing vehicle theft. The problem is that the system is known to fail quite commonly. It has been failing consistantly for around 30 years. When it fails, two things can happen. First, you turn the key and nothing happens at all. Lights work, radio works, windows work... just not the starter that you need to start the vehicle. This is a "starter immobilizor". Second, you turn the key and the vehicles starts just fine, but then stalls in 2-5 seconds. This is a "fuel immobilizor". It literally cuts off the fuel injectors and stalls the vehicle to immobilize it. These are normally followed by a light on the dash that says SECURITY or ANTITHEFT. These lights are to inform you of the system's failure to collect the information it needs from your key to the computer. If your security/antitheft light is on, odds are you will be stranded soon, if not already. There is a lot of info on this site that you can read up on. http://vatspasslockpasskeysecurityhelp.yolasite.com/

No dash lights when headlights are turned on. Everything works fine on my vehicle EXCEPT today the panel lights don't work. Turn signals, hazard blinker, oil gauge, rpm gauge, speedometer, drive shift...


there is a regulator for the display brightness, you may have it turn'd down or it has stopped working;. it controls the brightness at which the dash lights are. usually has a speedo sign on it. goes up and down. it works with the main light and is conecter to them on the same lighting board if it has gone then a new light swtch control switch will be needed.

L turn key to on but car does not start. Headlights work but panel lights and radio dont. Window will not roll up or down.


If all of the fuses inside the car and in the engine compartment are good, you will need to check the key switch to see if it is providing power to these circuits. You will need a repair manual to get the wiring diagrams.
It's possible the car had a security system and it has failed, or a relay is dead, but I would start with the key switch.

Unable to start my 2001 cabrio vw. I have a fairly new battery. Lights work. When I turn the key, there's nothing not a crank, nothing.


I would look to see if the anti-theft light is on next to the door lock. A 95 cabrio did this when I was test driving it. All we did was get out of the vehicle and manual lock and unlock the car, then it went away. This could definitely be more complicated than this, but always worth a try.

the starter relay is on a module conected to the radio relay....the starter must be cold when starting or it will not start in this problem on this vehicle....in other words you have a bad starter relay.:)
