TRY CLEANING THE THROTTLE BODY. THERE MAY BE EXCESSIVE CARBON BUILDUP CAUSING TOO LITTLE AIRFLOW AT IDLE. IF THE CHECK ENGINE LIGHT IS ON YOU MAY NEED TO HAVE TRUCK SCANNED FOR TROUBLE CODES IF THIS DOESNT WORK. GOOD LUCK!

I called myself programming the new keys for my pt cruiser, but,it didnt take. At first it would start and run for a few seconds, now it wont turn over.what did I do wrong and how can I fix this?


Takes the master key to get it started again. The security gives you 3 tries to get the vehicle started, after the third time, it kills the starter.
2002 Chrysler PT Cruiser Note: You must have two valid keys to add a new key to the system.
1. Insert the first valid key into the ignition switch. Turn the ignition switch to the
ON/RUN position for at least three seconds, but no longer than 15 seconds.
Then, Turn the ignition switch to the LOCK position and remove the first key.
2. Insert the second valid key into the ignition switch. Turn the ignition switch to
the ON/RUN position within 15 seconds. After 10 seconds, a chime will sound.
In addition, the Vehicle Security Light will begin to flash. Turn the ignition switch
to the LOCK position and remove the second key.
3. Insert the new key into the ignition switch. Turn the ignition switch to the
ON/RUN position.within 60 seconds. After 10 seconds, a single chime will
sound. In addition, the Vehicle Security Light will stop flashing. To indicate that
programming is complete, the Vehicle Security Light will turn on again for
seconds and then turn off.
The new key is now programmed. The Remote Keyless Entry transmitter will
also be programmed during this procedure.
Repeat this procedure to program up to eight keys.

When i open car door security lite flashes, car turns over but wont start


Your passkey security system is activated. The key has a transponder chip in it, if the ignition doesnt read that signal correctly, your anti theft will kick in to stop a potential car theif. Try turning the key forward like you are trying to start it. 2 clicks forward, for 10 minutes. Then turn it back and forward again and try to start. This may reset your system. If not, Its probably DEALERSHIP time.

My 2000 chevy malibu wont start


IF THE ANTI THEFT LIGHT IS FLASHING WHEN U TRY TO START IT, TRY TURNING THE KEY TO THE ON POSITION FOR ABOUT 10 MINUTES OR UNTIL THE LIGHT STOPS FLASHING. THEN TURN IT BACK FOR 5 SECS AND TRY TO START AGAIN. ALSO CHECK THE STARTER, IGNITION, AND FUEL PUMP.

My alarm disabled my car and the car wont start how do i disable it


Turn the key to the start position, but dont start. Wait for lights to stop blinking and push the brake pedal down a few times, light should flash again, turn ignition to off and remove key, exit car and lock doors, use key to open door and then try to start it. Good luck.

You either have a bad solenoid on your starter OR a bad ignition switch as these are the only two things that can cause the symptom you describe... I lean to the solenoid first, RARELY does an ignition switch sieze up in the start position but it is a possibility. Several national chain parts stores can test the starter for you (GM starters have the starter solenoid mounted directly to the starter and you need to remove the starter to get to it, so you would take the whole unit in to test it... REMEMBER to disconnect the battery first!)

2003 yukon engine shut down wont crank


Theft light on indicates a problem with passlock. You have a problem with the key or ignition switch. When I worked I replaced a lot of ignition switches, so i would say that would be your problem.

Give this a try it might work for you........
When you put the key in ignition, turn it on (not to crank) dos the security light start flashing? If so, you need to either wait 15 minutes or wait with the key on until it stops flashing. Once it stops flashing, try to start again. You should get to try it 2 times before the passlock will lock up again.

If the light has not stop blinking when you wait ten minutes then it is not going to crank. My does it a lot but after 10 minutes the light has stopped blinking. I think that the ignition switch needs replacing or maybe just the key is worn out. I think when anybody goes to fix this GM problem it is a guessing game.
