    Thanks.



    In fact it was the anti theft element. Here is the fix:-



    Connect and battery charger. Then turn on the ignition on (but do not start). Leave on for 12 minutes. Then turn off.



    This is the reset for the anti theft system.



    Car should then start.



    I had to do this twice for whatever reason but it worked and no issues since.



    Good Luck!!

A little dificult solving this without actually being there..but you may want to check for trouble codes first. Also check the junction box in the engine compartment for corrosion. Remove it from its mounting and flip over so you can see under neath. Check for any corrosion in there.

Have electrical issues on a 2004 mazda 3.


I would check every single fuse in the car. Blown fuses can cause weird issues like this. While the initial issue with the mechanic does sound like an alarm problem....the rest does not unless the shop that installed it really butchered the job.

2002 chevy cavalier wont shift out of park unless I pull the bcm fuse


The shifter release solenoid is activated by the brake light switch. Check to see if the brake lights are working when you press the brake pedal. If not, that may be the reason why the shifter won't come out of park. You may need to replace or adjust the brake light switch. (It's located at the top of the brake pedal arm).

Check your O2 sensors. They will give that affect and work only when your engine heats up. If the car cools down and starts up again, that is a sign that your O2 sensors are shot. Replace them.

My 2004 chevy cavalier last week i was leaving the store and the light to pull out of the shopping center my battery light come on and car died. a jump wouldnt start it back up i changed the battery and it...


if the electrical system is not keeping the battery charged you should clean the contacts on the battery terminals and wires and then if that doesn't work your alternator might be fried, its what restores the power to the battery after starting... if the starter won't turn the car over it might need a solenoid or replaced. finally make sure you check the relavent fuses. sometimes the simplest explaination is the best.

It sounds like your fuse block has gone bad and needs to be replaced. Locate and inspect the fuse box and look for any corrosion that is causing the short which is giving you the electrical problems. Good luck and keep me posted.

96 Isuzu Rodeo electrical problems (Car wont start)


It has to be an electrical connection as you say. The Anti Lock Brake system light is probably just a deprograming of the computer. Due to the electrical problem. Have you check for current at the starter ? Have sombody turn the key as if starting it. Then with a test light check for current at the starter connections. This will give you an idea whre to look for an open circuit or short.
