Possible dirty battery cables or a poor engine battery ground cable connection. Clean the battery cables of any corrosion (at the battery) and the ground connection to the engine, have the battery tested as well. Also don't post twice, modify and answer the experts questions on the first post please. You can buy a cable inside cleaner for cheap at any auto parts store. Use baking soda to neutralize acid, wear eye protection, the acid residue (***********) can send you to the ER if you get it in your eyes.

SOURCE: 2005 ford taurus. Remote entry wont work theft light keeps blinking when key is engaged

HI, I'm reading your problem,
Let me explain something about your car.

2005 Ford Taurus, The key on that car has Chip inside of the key and receiver on the ignition switch,
Check if the key you are trying to use is Black and has a plastic head.
If not you need a key with that characteristics.
But if you have the right key, Remenber if you had drop on the floor, or hit with something,
Because some times they come damaged, with insignificat thins.
Remenber if you left the key close to a magnets like speakers.

If nothing aply at your case, you need to call a place Aloha Smith, they have the computer to program or reprogarm your key. IF not you can't start your car.

OK.. I hope this information work for you.

Thank's for submit yous question on fixya.com

SOURCE: car want start factor security light flashing and

The factory security light will remain on - this is a standard feature indicating the car is dead.
First, unplug the hazard fuze in the engine bay (this will reset the ecu and remove the flashing)

Next, replace the battery with a new one (or one with proper charge) - keep in mind a small battery will not do anything for these cars, the engines require a lot to push them over (it isnt a honda)
*Make sure to clean the positive and negative battery cables from acid

Then just start it up :)

2005 mitsubisi galant will crank but wont start


There's two main issues that cause this:
no spark; and no fuel.

No spark can have many causes, from a dead spark coil to a broken crank angle sensor. Can also be the coolant temp sensor.
Check for any error codes from the ECU.

Open the gas cap and see if the car swill start. You should be able to hear a buzzing from the fuel pump just after you try to start.

2009 HHR won't start. Battery is good.


Is the security light on or blinking?If not then do you have power to the starter.You can check this with a test light.You should have power when you turn the key to start.The test light should light up.Should be the small wire.I believe it is purple in color.If the security light is on then you will have to get the codes to see what is causing the no start.Hope this helps.Good luck.

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
