Your toddler simulated a theft - take car to dealer... and can I also suggest a) Do not leave toddler alone in your car, b) Do not leave toddler alone with scissors...just a suggestion to try to prevent this happening again.

Testimonial: "ok , it wasnt my toddler but similar in mindframe, my bf. he lost my keys in walmart. I asked csr if any had been turned in. while i was doing this he became "frustraded"?=(I) and tried to start it like a theif.csr found keys and I went to start it. Once it didnt turn I already knew and asked him if he had put anything else in the ignition. His reply ,"scissors". The messed up thing is i had to pay 200 a few months ago cause he lost the key. Didnt want to call him out but would rather than insult my parenting skills.....Im an excellent MOM.LOL but not really."

The first suggestion doesn't really apply to you as the issue probably stems more from the scissors in the ignition than a faulty key/key-fob or the car door's lock system, but suggestions suggestions two and three could probably help you the most.

As I got out of the car i grabbed the wheel and it moved left and clicked. Now I cant get the key to turn in ignition and wheel is locked. What do I do?


move the steering wheel while turning the key in the ignition and it should come unlocked. This happens sometimes, its just on a bind. Like i said just turn the steering wheel left and right the little bit that you can and the key will be able to turn.

Turn ignition key and motor starts up, next day turn ignition key and motor just turns over and wont start. could it be anti theft problem its a 2002 f150 4 wheel drive with 4.6 liter


This could be caused by either a faulty Crank Shaft Position Sensor or the anti-theft system. Try put key in, turn to ON position for EXACTLY 10 minutes, As SOON as anti-theft light shuts off or stops flashing, then IMMEDIATELY start the engine.

Single mom can't do nothing cuz of car


You may have a faulty ingition. Otherwise you have the very common GM anti-theft system. If you have a flashing anti-theft light with key in igniton, then this is what you should do:

Put key in ignition, turn to ON position (Do NOT Start)
Leave in on position for EXACTLY 10 Minutes
Then while watching the anti-theft light, as SOON as the light turns off after 10 minutes, START CAR IMMEDIATELY after light turns off.

This will reset the anti-theft

1998 nissan altima gxe -ignition problem


Hi what is happening is that your turn off your car and left the wheels turned to one side and specially if your car is parke in a hill what you have to do is to force the steering wheel to the same direction of your wheels this will free up the ignition switch it is going to be hard let me tell you but it will work and this is why your shift don't work once you have the ignition switch free then your shift will work again

How can I bypass a anti auto theft system on my 1990 cadillac seville?


I Have A Seville 1990, When That Happen To Me I Got The Inginion
Replaced Problem Solved. What Is Happening Is Your Key Has A Chip And That Chip Is A Resister And When The Valve Is Not Sented To The Computer It Disengages the Fuel Pump And Than Tells You To Wait. Soon All That Will Happen Is You Will Get The Wait 3 Mins And It Will Never Start, A Good Locksmith Can Take Care Of This For You And That Will Save You Some Money. Cause If You Go To The Dealer Ouch They Will Hit You Up. But I Asure This Is How It Will Happen Cause It Is How It Happen To Me
And Sorry There Is No By Passing The Computer
