SOURCE: 1998 Ford Taurus Lights will not go off at all

In this case, you most problemly have a brake light switch under the dash attached to the brake pedal mechanism. The rubber stop gromite maybe worn out. switch is open all the time. Also the clutch pedal maybe also have a damaged switch. You can make rubber pad with rubber floor matting or stick on picture frame wall hanging stick pads. Otherwise when you started & on the road again go to car parts centre & buy the correct parts for long term replacement. okay,

Will anti theft by pass module over really bypass the theft system

My mechanic disconnected the security section because my key I use to start the car had the security spot on the key was loose and would not work in the ignition It was going to cost a lot for a new set of keys so he took the security section out for a lot less. As he said an older car does not need security.

How can iReset key code grand cherokee 2001 4.7 lt car was jumped started and now a key shows on dash but it wont start

All of the suggestions are great. Resetting the computer by disconnecting the battery should work. If it doesn't, you may need the antenna that fits around the ignition key slot replaced. This item sends a signal to the chip in the key and receives its "resonance" to identify the key as being valid. If this antenna is burned out, the computer can't read the key.
If you want to reset the security system (if so equipped) look here:

Changed battery terminals and now dinging wont stop unless warning light fuse removed

It sounds like it thinks the key is still in it all the time. Try turning the key forward to the on position, but not running, so the dinging stops. disconnect the battery. Remove the key completely and reconnect the battery.
