Turn the key to the on position...the security light should begin flashing...let it stay that way 'till it stops...that will re-set it and car should then start...usually takes ten - fifteen minutes.

2001 pt cruiser starts ,runs for 15 mins shuts off wont start for maybe an hour then does same thing


Ignition control module (ICM) or also maybe the crank position sensor. If one of them went bad, it would mean you lose spark (ignition).

What is causing my Oldsmobile Alero to shut off after starting?


As for the lights being on many GM products do that right after the key is off but if you open the driver's door they should go off. Not sure if that model is part of the ignition switch recall or not. Due to numerous ignition switch problems I would have the ignition switch replaced. The key cylinder IS NOT the switch. The key lock cylinder operates a rod that in turn moved the ignition switch to various positions. Battery must be disconnected and care taken not to deploy the airbag while the switch is replaced. I think I would go with a after market brand such as Delphi rather than another AC Delco factory switch.

The engine shutting off after starting may also be the ignition switch not moving to the RUN position properly. Before doing anything else I'd replace the ignition switch then go from there if the two problems are not cleared up.

Ford focus problem


Not sure how it could kill two cylinders on purpose. In most cases a blown hose is a sign of a blown head gasket.
If the cylinders have normal compression, check for spark on each cylinder.

1991 ford tempo ran fine went to store it started fine and then just died


Likely a gas or spark problem. Spray starting fluid into the air intake while cranking it. If it then runs for a few seconds, it's a fuel problem-maybe the fuel pump, filter, or injector circuit. Check if gas is getting up to the engine.
Buy an inexpensive "spark tester" at a parts store, and check for spark- if no spark, the ignition circuit will need diagnosed- could be the ignition coil, maybe the electronic ignition module-several possibi9lities. Let me know what you find, or if other questions..

Wont start unless manually primed


Turn the ignition key to the ON position without starting the engine

You should hear the fuel pump priming for about a few seconds then shutting itself off.
If not hear replace the engine oil pressure switch
The 3rd wire to that switch is the pumps prime switch lead.
When the engines oil pressure is reached the computer will shut that circuit off and turn on the fuel pump relay
If you hear the pump prime the relay maybe at fault instead

1999 toyota corolla. Car would not shut off went


I assume the car is a petrol! to stop a petrol engine the ignition needs to be shut down! if there is over run happening there are a few reasons for this. There is a problem with ignition mudule! spark plugs coked up! or the cylinders are coked.
If the car is a Diesel model then the reason for this happening is the shut off valve on the fuel pump is at fault.

Hope this helps.
