SOURCE: toyota avalon 2001 starting problem(transponder

Sure, I would sell you the same parts, IF I was interested in robbing you, BUT, I have no interest in having dissatisfied customers...So, here is what I need you to do: Call this number: 1-877-517-LOCK
This is my local locksmith,and he is cool...Tell them that I gave you this number. He has a machine, on his truck, that will reprogram your key to match the ECU/barrel combo in your car. Now, I do not expect you to have him come to your location, but, he may give you the info that HE has, his machine, and then you could call local locksmiths to see if they have the same gizmo that he has, to solve your problem. Secondly, there is an ECU exchange program from Toyota, that your dealer ssomehow neglected to tell you about, but it would cost you about 700.00 to get you going. Call the locksmiths first, and get back to me if my guy won't help you. This is the best that I can do, up to this point. Hope this helps. Advise of what transpires.

SOURCE: Are there any main fuses on a 2001 plymouth neon

Have you checked the starter solenoid. Your battery + cable connects to this then + cable runs from it to your starter. You also have an ignition switch wire connected to this. Just follow your cable from the battery and it will lead you right to the part. Some times these will break inside or the contacts go bad inside and therefore you will not get power to start the engine, but you will have power to turn on lights or whatever other accessories.The part is about $15

Lost my keys and need to know how to hot wire a dodge neon 2000

You won't be able to do so, according to the link below. It states that it uses an electronic Security System that prevents it.

Instead, contact a dodge dealer, and you will need to provide proof of ownership to them to obtain a new key.

Will a bad key ignition switch effect the inderctor light on the dishboard

New keys with cylinder may not have a transponder chip , or new keys will need to be programmed. you will require two keys equipped with proper transponder for your vehicle, and either new keys cloned with the old transponders. If you have lost the original keys , you will need someone to remove the original keys from the pcm , than marry the 2 new keys to the pcm. If you have an original key , try placing it by the lock cylinder when attempting to start with the key supplied with the new ignition cylinder.

Does a 2001 mercury cougar have a chip in the key

Yes, it does........

The Passive Anti-Theft System (PATS) is fully passive in operation and requires no special procedures by the driver to arm or disarm the system. It is invisible to normal scrutiny and is operated by a miniature transponder within the key body. The transponder communicates with the powertrain control module through a transceiver mounted around the ignition switch lock barrel. The PATS functionality is incorporated within the powertrain control module.

PATS may be identified by a larger than normal sized ignition key. A larger sized ignition key indicates the presence of the transponder that controls the system.

The transponder code reading is carried out when the key. having been inserted into the ignition lock barrel is turned from position "0" to position "II" to crank the engine. If the Powertrain Control Module (PCM) receives the correct code the engine will start. If the PCM receives either no code or an incorrect code the engine will not crank and PATS remains armed and the engine immobilised.

Anti-Theft Indicator
Whenever the ignition is switched on the anti-theft indicator will remain on for three seconds while the system reads the ignition key code.

The anti-theft indicator will flash rapidly or glow continuously after the initial three seconds to indicate the PATS has immobilised the vehicle.

Where do i find tdm on 2001 gmc jimmy?

The 200 Jimmy key is not a chipped key, but instead a transponder key. This key works with the security system by transmitting a signal that is read by the Lock Cylinder in the ignition. Without this signal the truck will refuse to crank over, or instead start for 5 seconds or less and then shut down. If your security light is on, the antitheft system is 100% the problem. You can either find which parts is failing and replace it correctly, (Key-Ignition/lock cylinder-or TDM) or bypass it.

My ignition was ripped out as someone tried to drive away in my Neon 2002. Tried to put the ignion back in in order to restart the car. It didn't work so good so I tried starting with a screw driver....

You need a new ignition lock with transponder chip and key with transponder chip. Then you need to pair them. You can either do this at a dealership, or you can disconnect the battery for 4 hours, put the ignition key in the ignition but not turned on, connect the battery, wait 15 minutes for the system to reset and pair and then cross your fingers.

2000 neon check engine light is on

P1685 Skim Invalid Key.

The Sentry Key Immobilizer Module contains a Radio Frequency (RF) transceiver and a microprocessor. The SKIM transmits RF signals to, and receives RF signals from the Sentry Key transponder through a tuned antenna ring integral to the SKIM housing. When the ignition switch is turned to the On position, the SKIM transmits an RF signal to the transponder in the ignition key. The SKIM then waits for an RF signal response from the transponder. If the response received identifies the key as valid, the SKIM sends a valid key message to the PCM over the PCI data bus. If the response received identifies the key as invalid, or if no response is received from the key transponder, the SKIM sends an invalid key message to the PCM. The PCM will enable or disable engine operation based upon the status of the SKIM messages.
