MINI owner's manual warns against leaving the car sitting for long periods of time without disconnecting the battery. IIRC, you will have to have the remote "reprogrammed", as the memory for the remote function is reset from lack of power.

Mustang alarm


Ford sold a Ford branded alarm through the parts department. These sometimes were a dealer installed option on new cars. Mine would randomly stop responding to the remote and I would have the same symptoms as you describe. I had it removed and the original equipment factory system still worked. Be warned, if you have the Ford "accessory" alarm, your key fobs (remotes) are different and the method to program them is different from what you will read online. You can tell if you have the system by looking at your key fob. The standard Mustang key fob is a 4 button (lock, unlock, panic, and trunk). The accessory alarm uses a 3 button remote and clicking unlock twice would pop the trunk. I really wish I had a picture of the remote because there are 3 button Ford key fobs for cars without a trunk release although I don't think you should have one on a Mustang. Long story short, if you have the accessory alarm, you can solve your problem by having it removed but you will need new 4 button key fobs to remotely lock/unlock your doors

with the key out remove the negativw battery cable
Put the key in and turn to ON

Remote won't work, can't start car (alarm system goes off) Also, key won't turn manually in door. FYI` car battery replaced a few months ago. Also tried replacing batteries in remote. When I parked the...


Open the trunk with the key, it will disable the alarm. You probably need a new door lock cylinder, which you should look into. They're easy to replace, but take a while to get, as they have to be coded for your key. You can also remove the door lock cylinder by loosening the t20 torx screw near the door handle until the lock cylinder slides out(DO NOT LOOSEN MORE THAN NECESSARY TO GET THE LOCK CYLINDER OUT), then use a flathead screwdriver through the hole to activate the lock.

My car was running perfect until i let it sit for around six months and my father went to start it but it wouldnt start so he but the battery on the charger and still wont start it has a pro starter on it...


The most likely one is the battery went flat causing brown out of the ECU unit or the boy racer add on .I get no end of problems caused by add on so called car alarms from the long term airport parking lads and 9 out of ten times even after removing the add on alarm its still will not start and invariably end up with either a dealer fitted new ECU or one from a scrappy with the key chip and the transponder .

Car won't start. Believe kill switch is engaged.


Do you have a chipped key {small black thing in the middle of the key} if not you need to take your registration into the dealer and order a new key.

Car wont start when i turn the key


The first thing you need to check is whether the key has a pellet in it or "chip". If it does...the problem is most likely your key lock cylinder. Go buy a new key lock cylinder....KEEP YOUR OLD KEY. Take your new lock cylinder down to any Chevrolet dealer to find out what the VATS number is for your key....then have the dealer cut you a new key with that same VATS number...then go to your vehicle and remove the negative battery cable...this does two things...1. It resets the computer after a five minute period of no power...2.. allows you to work on the steering column without power on it.

Remove the steering wheel with the aid of repair manual.

Put the new key lock cylinder with the wire running down the steering column. Then put the steering column back together....Hook up the negative battery cable, then use your new key that was CUT and your car should start

Dealer install remote starter bypasses kill switch


1) remote starter was not hooked up to the factory arm wire
2) trunk release was programmed to disarm factory alarm before popping trunk
3)parking light wire on remote starter was not hooked up
4)disarm wire from remote starter was not hooded up
5)this is not normal and they should fix the problem or have it done by some one else and have them pay for it, how much did they charge,
Bring it over I'll fix it right and not charge overpriced amount

No Start


Hi m30sec

There is a "Kill switch" on the shifter mechanism that prevents starting the engine unless the car is in PARK. This is a safety feature sp the car won't start and suddenly take off if it were in gear. This is usually a mechanical switch. I can'r say for sure where it is on a Cavalier. What I suggest you do is call a Cavalier dealer, ask for the Service Dwpt and ask one of the men where the gear shifter kill switch is located. I have found that most dealers are real good about helping in a situation like your. You are a potential future customer.

Hope this helps Good luck Liringh Ps Please leave a rating if appropriate. Thks
