I have a chrysler 2003 300 m that I changed battery out in now the car will not start can anyone tell me or show how to get information on how to disable or bypass alarm system


In changing the battery, you may have wiped out the security system in the vehicle and it needs to reset. Because you have a chip in the key, it needs to communicate with the receiver. Try this but first you need to make sure the battery is fully charged or connect a charger. Insert the key and turn the key until the accessory lights come on but do not start vehicle. Leave in that position for ten minutes. After ten minutes, turn the ignition switch off and back to accessory for another ten minutes. This must be done 3 times for a total of 30 minutes. On the 4th try, start the vehicle. If this is done correctly, your vehicle should start. I hope this helps. Good luck.

Put in a new fuel pump car still won't start has a security light on what do we do to get it started


If the Security Light is on but is not flashing, the security system is fine. If the security light is flashing then turn the ignition key to the run position (do not start). Wait over ten minutes and then try to start the engine. After the ten minutes you should notice that the light stopped flashing. If the engine starts then you do have a problem with the Passlock Security System.

I have had the same problem. This has happened to me three times in the past nine months or so. Per the owner's manual, you turn the key to the on position and wait about ten minutes. This resets the system and when the "Theft System" light goes out, it starts right up. I did this each time and it started right up.

2002 Monte Carlo Security system has shut car down completely unable to start car


the process takes about thirty minutes. in three ten minute key cycles. here is how you do it . make sure that the battery is fully charged. step on parking brake pedal and leave it down this will keep the head lights off. turn the key and try to start it then leave it in the on position. you have to leave the key in the on position for ten minutes. you will see the security light on. after the ten minutes the light will go off then turn the key to the start position. turn the key all the way back to the off position and count to three. then try to start it and leave the key in the on position for another ten minutes till the security light goes out. you have to do this same process three times to reset the security system. sometimes you get lucky and it will start after the first ten minute cycle.

I accidentally put the key to our second car half way into the ignition to our 2005 chevy suburban. I immediately took it out, but when I went to start it, the key will go in, but will absolutely not turn...


Yes. Turn your key to the on position and leave it. You will see the display flashing security in the instrument panel. leave the key in the on position for approximately ten minutes till the security light stops flashing. Then try to start it. If it does not start. Immediately turn the key back to the off position and turn it back to the on position and repeat the ten minute process. It may take up to three ten minute cycles to reprogram your key to the antitheft system. Make sure your battery doesnt go dead during the process or it will not work. To make your headlights stay off. press down on the parking brake pedal this will keep your headlights off while the key is on.

Buick does not start when theft system comes on


I had the same problem with ours...

It ia a faulty ign switch lock (the sensor) > Expensive part >

Temp fix;

remove the cover underneath the steering column and locate the thin white flat (3) wire (runs from the ignition key lock down to a connector.

After starting the the car , dis-connect the connector under the dash that the Ign lock goes to , after that the car should start everytime.

You will need to replace the lock assy. if you want to fix this correctly ; I have been using ours for (6) months > no problem except the "Theft System " light stays on -
