You most likely have triggered an alarm. Use your mechanical key to lock and unlock the driver's door. Then put the key in the ignition and start the car, turn the headlights off and on a couple of times, then turn the vehicle's engine off, get out and lock the door with the key. The security system should be happy then!

    I have no radio turn signals or clock. Ceiling lights blink when my key is turned on but when I try to start it everything does dead and it won't start

    Then your battery is dead, or so close to dead that it cannot do anything. You need a jump start, but if the battery wont charge, you may need a new battery. It COULD just be dirty or loose connections though. Do the battery terminal connections look clean, or crusty, perhaps with a light colored powder around either or both connections? Be careful! That powder is acidic, and can burn your skin, and it's REALLY BAD if you get any in your eyes ... it could cause blindness! Use rubber gloves and eye protection if you plan on cleaning any battery connections! And do ONE, NOT TWO at a time!

It can be one of two problems. One: pending on what kind of car you have. ..there is a switch near the steering column that turns left or right...adjusting your dash lights and or turning on/you interior lights.#2...check the interior fuse bus panel/box

I have a 2005 GMC Sierra 1500 Z-71 - the interior dome light works with the dash switches, but won't work when the door opens. Why?

Is there a button by the headlight control switch? I recently found out that the dome light only comes on while the doors are open when this button is engaged

Galant won't turn over when trying to start. No spark from plugs. Changed crank sensor and timing belt and still won't start. Any suggestions

you now need to check for 12 volt power, and signal to the coil, also be sure all you timing marks are correct, if you have no spark, unplug one of the injectors and using an led test light check for injector pulse power across the two terninals while cranking, if you have no injector pulse then you could have a problem with the ignition passlock system, or key decoder

Replaced ac condensor and now the radio, clock, interior lights won't turn on

Radio and clock/interior lights are two different circuits. Check your fuse block to see if it has power.

My air conditioning in my Mitsubishi Galant (2005) is not real cold and the a/c light is blinking?

Your Freeon might be leaking or empty. You can buy replacement containers at any local auto shop, should this be the case. And remember, never try to refill a freeon container yourself.
